Making the Most of Your Swim Spa Time

The most popular swim spas offer a huge range of activities that will satisfy each and every user. A swim spa is an ideal investment because it can function as a pool, gym, hot tub, wave pool, aquatic center, and more.

Below, you’ll learn about the many ways you can use your swim spa to its full potential.

Exercise

Most people who purchase swim spas do so at least in part because they want a fun and convenient way to exercise. In addition, because exercising in water has no impact on your joints, it’s a great way to get in phenomenal shape while caring for your body.

What many people don’t know is that some swim spas offer more exercise options than others. For example, Hydropool swim spas allow each user to customize their swim by adjusting the level of challenge. They also offer a variety of additional exercise options like running, resistance swimming, and rowing kits. Water weights and dumbells are also great ways to add a strength training component to your swim spa workout.

Triathlete Training

If you’re a triathlete or a competitive swimmer, swim spas create the perfect training environment for high-level workouts. As your fitness level increases, you’ll be able to adjust the speed and resistance to make sure you’re training at your maximum potential.

Triathletes find swim spas especially advantageous to their training routines because of their ability to simulate open water swimming. Just like in open water, a swim spa does not allow you to turn, glide, or push off or rest on the walls. This will help you prepare as much as possible for the conditions during your race. Practicing transitions from the swim spa to your bike to the treadmill is also possible and will help you practice this important skill before you compete.

A Complete Aquatic Center

Even if you’re extremely committed to fitness, you’ll likely want to use your swim spa for fun in the sun as well, especially if you have kids. A great feature of Hydropool swim spas is the wave pool option where kids can play and splash or attach a boogie board or knee board to the tether cord for hours of fun.

These are just a few of the many ways you can get the most out of the time you spend in your swim spa. To learn how to select the right swim spa for you, download our Swim Spa Buyer’s Guide.
