As the weather gets colder and the holidays get closer, it gets harder and harder to motivate yourself to workout. There are just so many things you’d rather be doing, and we totally get it. But what if we told you there was a way to make exercise easier and more fun? That’s right, you can do both your workout and recovery in your swim spa.
Take advantage of your all-in-one workout spot
For most people, a workout consists of a warm up, workout, and cool down/recovery. And for most people, these don’t take place all in the same space. You may warm up with some stretches at home, go for a run, then cool down at home again. If you’re more of a gym person, you could be doing each part in a different area of the gym. Or if you already own a swim spa, you may be using your swim spa for part of this routine, but not all of it. Why is that?
An Endless Pools® swim spa is the perfect all-in-one workout spot. The heated water provides some unique benefits you don’t get elsewhere. On one hand, the water helps take pressure off your body, making workouts better suited for those who need less impact. But on the other hand, the water’s resistance and the resistance of the jets makes the workout more challenging.
What about the recovery?
There are some great benefits for the actual exercise portion of your workout, but what about the recovery? And even the warm up? Well, a swim spa has great opportunities for those, too.
It’s always important to stretch before a workout to get your muscles loosened and ready to work. When you do these stretches in a swim spa, the warm water also helps loosen your muscles. So, your body will be even more prepared to exercise.
Then during the cool down/recovery portion, you can do some cool down stretches and then relax on the side of the swim spa. The increased blood circulation from the hot water will help your muscles recover faster. Plus, the relaxing massage of the jets will help ease soreness in your muscles. All of this combined will help you prepare for a better night’s sleep as well, which is instrumental in living a healthy lifestyle.
Where can I get a swim spa?
If you’re interested in doing your workout and recovery in your swim spa, it really helps to have one at home. Luckily, swim spas are the perfect size for virtually any backyard. They’re smaller than a pool but bigger than a hot tub, which makes them the ideal size for workout and recovery. How great is that?
