Beginner’s Guide to Resistance Training in a Swim Spa

Perhaps you’ve been hesitant to start working out. Gyms are expensive and even some of the fitness terminology can be a bit daunting, does anyone even know what plyometrics are? The good news is that if improving your fitness is your goal, you can find the tools you need for success. A swim spa for instance, is the perfect place to learn things like resistance training, allowing you to take the first step on your journey to fitness. 

What is Resistance Training?

Resistance training, also known as strength training, is any exercise that causes your muscles to contract against external forces. Examples of this are lifting free weights, medicine balls, and even your own body weight (like pushups). It sounds tough, but it’s actually how you create stronger, more toned muscles. But, if you’re searching for a more effective way to accomplish your fitness goals, look no further than your swim spa.

Exercising in Your Swim Spa 

Swimming is of course an excellent strength training exercise, but what else can you do in a swim spa? Almost anything! Most workouts you can do on dry land, can be done in your Endless Pools® swim spa. Grab your waterproof weights and let the water not only provide the resistance you need for a productive workout, but support your joints for lower impact routines. 

Benefits of Hydrotherapy and Fitness

Hydrotherapy, or the use of warm water has been well documented for its numerous health benefits, especially when it comes to fitness. Swim spas feature heated water that provides a therapeutic effect as you exercise. You’re less likely to experience sore muscles, and the heat helps boost your metabolism for added fat burning power. It’s always low impact, which makes it the number one place to workout if you’re recovering from an injury, or dealing with aches and pains from arthritis.
