There are so many different fitness options available to us today that it can often be overwhelming. You may be thinking, which diet works best? Which fitness plan can I actually stay consistent with? How can I protect an injury and get fit at the same time? The gym can be an intimidating place to get into shape as well with fit people walking around in their perfect spandex bodies, and barely breaking a sweat. Wouldn’t it be nice to workout in the privacy of your own home? Swimspas have become a popular solution for this niche.
A swimspa is a pool replacement as well as an underwater gym. It can be installed below or above ground in your backyard and provides a powerful current to swim against. The AquaFit line from Dimension One Spas includes four models of swimspas from the super sporty 13 foot AquaFit Sport to the luxurious 19 foot dual-temp AquaFit Plus that includes a hot tub attached. This patented swimspa line allows you to jog, swim, row, stretch, strength train and cool down.
Circuit training is the best way to keep your heart at it’s targeted rate and burn fat fast. Circuit training in water is an even more effective way to exercise as each movement requires you to push water. The density of water is about 1000 times that of air so you must work harder to move your limbs. Due to the resistance of water, your movements are slow and more precise. This means you are working your muscles more efficiently. Exercising in a swimspa creates lean, strong muscles in a low impact environment.
If you do have injuries, water will support them gently while you do a rigorous workout. Working out in a swimspa helps reduce swelling in joints, helps increase range of motion, and the warmth, buoyancy and 3-dimensional support of water provides a safe environment for someone who has balance challenges.
