Learn how to use your hot tub or swim spa to improve your fitness. Through aquatic exercise, increase your aerobic endurance and build lean muscle.
What is aquatic exercise? It’s more than just swimming laps. Any fitness activity that you do in water is considered aquatic exercise. It can include swimming, as well as resistance training, rowing, water aerobics, aqua jogging, water walking.
A Master Spas swim spa allows you to enjoy the benefits of aquatic exercise without leaving home.
A swim spa provides the benefits of a backyard swimming pool with the therapy of a hot tub. Master Spas swim spas have a generous swim area that is ideal for aquatic exercise. There’s room to swim all four strokes or to go through your favorite water aerobics routine. Jets or a propulsion system create a water current that provides resistance for stationary swimming, water walking, or aqua jogging.
Swim spas also come with water exercise equipment, including rowing bars and resistance tubing. You can incorporate these fitness tools into a conditioning workout or to rehab an injury.
Anyone can use a swim spa for water exercise. H2X Challenger and Michael Phelps Swim spas are ideal for athletes who want to swim regularly. You can make the workout more challenging by changing the pace using the touchscreen control panel. People who live with chronic pain, conditions such as fibromyalgia or arthritis, or have limited mobility can benefit from water exercise in an H2X Trainer or Therapool.
Water exercise is a low-impact option for those who want to improve their fitness without stress on their joints. You can make exercise more comfortable and therapeutic by changing the water temperature.
