If you love going on walks or runs, but your climate doesn’t always allow for it, then you might just be considering adding a treadmill to your home. However, did you know that some swim spas will actually give you the same benefits of using a treadmill and so much more? Whether it’s walking on pavement or a piece of equipment, it can often be hard on your bones and joints. This is exactly where a swim spa with advanced treadmill technology comes into play, providing a smooth and low-impact workout from the comfort of your own home. But how exactly does this technology work? Here’s what you need to know.
What Are Swim Spas?
Swim spas are known for their versatility, as they provide the perfect space to relax, exercise, swim and play. Ideal for the whole family to enjoy, these compact units combine the benefits of a pool and hot tub. Maybe you’re a swimmer who would like to practice or train year-round, or you’d like a space for your family and friends to enjoy all together. Perhaps you’d like a space to exercise but are looking for a low-impact alternative to running outside or working out in the gym. Regardless of how you’d like to benefit from all of the features that allow you to stay active, at the end of it, you can sit back and relax as the massage jets ease tension, stress or pain. A standard swim spa’s versatility is unlike anything else, but Hydropool’s select swim spas with treadmill technology provide yet another feature that sets them apart from the rest.
How Does Treadmill Technology Work?
Known for unique features like self-cleaning technology, Zone Therapy, and more, Hydropool is a leading Canadian spa manufacturer. The treadmill technology they offer in their Executive Trainer 19Ex provides the perfect space for low-impact walking and jogging. Built right into the controller, this technology allows you to customize your workout to fit your desired comfort level. Burning equally as many calories as running on dry land, running in water is a much better alternative for some. Since you’re running in water instead of on land, there is less stress on your bones and joints. This is a perfect option for individuals recovering from an injury or dealing with any sort of pain but would still like to exercise. With that being said, it is also a great alternative for those who are already seemingly healthy. Even if you might not be feeling any pain from running outside right now, choosing to run in a swim spa will be a great means of preventing future pain or injury.
This treadmill technology also provides an excellent option for people to work out at any level they choose. Whether you’re a seasoned runner or someone doing it for your health, you can customize the level to fit your needs. You can do this by turning the jets to a lower level and simply walking or running against the current. Just like the jets of a swim spa allow you to swim in one place with nothing more than your momentum and the jet current, the same principle applies for running or walking in one, too.
Additional Features of a Hydropool Swim Spa
Hydropool swim spas feature advanced, unique technology all around, regardless of the make or model you choose. With unique features like their FORM Smart Swim Goggles and Water Watch, you can track the performance of your exercise. Everything is monitored from your time, calories burned, distance, pace, heart rate, etc. Whether you’re walking, running, swimming, or doing aquatic exercises, you can keep track of it all. Both of these unique accessories function by tying into your swim spa to analyze your performance.
Another very effective accessory of a Hydropool swim spa is the anchor point. Whether you’d like to attach workout bands, a tether, or a boogie board, there are endless options to create the perfect environment to play, exercise, and more. However you choose to optimize your swim spa experience, you’re bound to receive a low-impact workout from the comfort of your own home.
If you’ve been looking to add exercise equipment to your home to create your own gym, we recommend considering a Hydropool swim spa instead. Providing the perfect space to swim, exercise, run, walk and play, you can use them year-round regardless of your climate. And as one of the most incredible benefits, you can do all of this and receive endless massages from the jets of a swim spa. So when it comes down to it, choosing to add a swim spa to your home provides endless health and wellness benefits for all.
