How to use an Endless Pools swim tether

You already know that swimming is fantastic exercise. In fact, it’s one of the few workouts that effectively exercises every muscle group. But sometimes, finding a place to swim for exercise is hard. You have to find a local pool that’s large enough (and not crowded), or you have to live near an open body of water (which presents its own safety hazards). That’s one of many reasons why swim spas have become so popular today.

With the available variety of sizes and features, it’s easy to find an Endless Pools swim spa model that will fit your backyard and your lifestyle – from the compact X200 12’ to the X2000 20’ with a separated therapy area.  

All Endless Pools feature the unique, high-volume propeller system that creates a non-turbulent current that’s wider than your body and deeper than your stroke. It’s fully adjustable, too, so you can swim at the speed you prefer.

But some swimmers want something more. Additional resistance, or a little help maintaining proper form. That’s where the swim tether accessory comes in.

Swim tethers allow you to easily and effectively practice all of your strokes in your swim spa while maintaining proper technique. The tether attaches to the side of your swim spa (Don’t worry – you can easily remove it when you aren’t using it), and then attaches to your waist. It’s fully adjustable so you can get the fit you need, and while you swim the tether won’t be in your way.

Tethers also provide great resistance and make for an excellent workout, helping you build strength and burn calories. If you’re working to improve your swim speed, a swim tether can help you reach your goal more quickly than a traditional swimming program.
