Whether you’re new to exercise or a fitness guru, a swim spa is the perfect place to work out. Water resistance makes for an added challenge when it comes to strength training. The resistance also provides balance assistance along with muscle support. Regardless of your fitness level or age, you’ll enjoy a host of benefits with these low-impact exercises to try in your swim spa.
This may seem like a no-brainer, since swimming is what these spas are originally designed for, but the truth is you’ll be hard pressed to find a better low-impact, total body workout. Try different swim strokes like the butterfly or breaststroke to work a variety of muscle groups. You’ll also get your heartbeat up — torching calories and building cardio strength plus endurance.
Running and jogging are no doubt excellent for endurance training and fat burning. Unfortunately, it can take a toll on your knees and ankles, even if you’re on a treadmill at home. By jogging in your swim spa, you take a physically stressful workout and turn it into a low-impact exercise. Take the pressure off your joints when you set up an underwater treadmill. It will take your workout to wonderful new depths.
Did you know you can also bike in the water? Cycling in your swim spa is an excellent way to take the stress of exercise off your knees. Perfect for people struggling with balance issues, those who want to use the resistance of the water current to increase their endurance, or someone who might need to take things at a slower pace, it’s a fantastic core and back workout as you try different cycling positions.
