If you want to upgrade your home and make it a more relaxing environment, you might consider having a swimming pool installed. Whether you’re working with a smaller space or not, opting for a swim spa has become increasingly popular. Because of its versatility, you can swim, exercise, rest, play and more all from the comfort of one compact swim unit. Now it might be a small space, but it comes with significant benefits. Here’s what you need to know about the benefits of owning a swim spa!
1. It Can Provide a Customized Swimming Experience
You might be wondering what makes swimming in a swim spa different from swimming in a traditional pool. A traditional pool allows you to swim back and forth, while alternatively, a swim spa lets you swim in place against a water current. The intensity of this water current is adjustable depending on your preferences. All you have to do is turn on the jets and set them to your desired level!
For many, swimming in a swim spa is an excellent alternative to swimming in a pool because you have the option to customize your experience to your specific needs and preferences. This means that individuals of any age or level of swimming ability will be able to enjoy this home addition. For example, children who are just learning to swim would benefit from a lower intensity stream setting, while athletic adults would do well in a stronger stream setting.
Aside from tailoring your swim experience to your desired level, a swim spa allows you to put all your focus on technique and form whenever you’re swimming. This is because you’re doing it in one continuous motion instead of doing laps and stopping at each wall to turn around as you would in a traditional pool.
2. It Allows You to Have Unique Workout Experiences
There are endless options available when it comes to exercising in a swim spa, especially those within Hydropool’s collections. You can use workout bands and water weights, go for walks or runs using the treadmill technology, and much more. When looking at all of the benefits of a Hydropool swim spa, you will ultimately see that it provides an at-home workout and space to swim or play with family. Because of their versatility, swim spas can be customized to provide the perfect home workout and swim space for those of any age. Should you have more questions about swim spa safety for children or older adults, it’s best to reach out to a spa dealer near you.
3. It Provides the Ultimate Relaxation Experience
An amazing summer spent in a swim spa not only includes lounging around and having fun, but also experiencing much-needed relief from any pain, tension, or stress. This is because swim spas have massage jets that can target different body areas. And yes, these are the same jets that also allow you to swim to your liking. It’s no wonder a swim spa is often described as “the best of both worlds!” You can enjoy all the benefits of a hot tub with all the advantages of a traditional pool.
On top of the low-impact, customizable swim experience, having a swim spa in your backyard will also let you enjoy all the benefits of hydrotherapy. These benefits include but are not limited to: faster recovery, improved balance and coordination, pain relief, reduced stress levels and better blood flow. In addition, swimming helps promote weight loss. In fact, this activity can burn almost double the calories of running or cycling. Without a doubt, both your physical health and your mental health will thank you for adding a swim spa to your home. And so will the whole family!
There are many reasons why a swim spa is a great home addition. They’re versatile, they can be used year-round, and they’re low maintenance. If you’re looking for a way to improve your health and well-being, or simply want to add some fun and relaxation to your life, then a swim spa may be just what you need.
