Resistance Training

Resistance training is just one of the many things you can do in your swim spa. Whether you’re a complete beginner or a seasoned athlete, you can enjoy a continuous swim without having to stop or turn around. The high-powered jets and swim current in the swim spa can give you the same results as working out with weights. You can adjust the swim current speed to suit your level of intensity, as you work on all your major muscle groups. Best of all, you can train to your heart’s content without risking injury or putting excess pressure on your joints, because your muscles are supported by the water.

Core Exercises

Want to create the ultimate six-pack? Working on your midsection takes hard work, but it can be easily achieved when you work against the swim current. Hold onto the side of your swim spa crank up the current speed and do crunches or pikes against the current. If you want to take it up a notch, add a medicine ball or kickboard to target your core and round out your exercise and strength regimen.

Running

One of the great things about running in your swim spa is that you get to train the same muscles you would use on land, except your joints won’t take a pounding! That’s because of the buoyant force of the water and weightlessness that you feel when your body is immersed in water. You can work up a sweat and increase the intensity of your run with minimal risk of injury.

Swimming

No other exercise works on all your core muscle groups in one fell swoop quite like swimming. That’s why we love it! Whether you’re a triathlete or recreational swimmer, you can swim your way to peak performance while building endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness. Some studies have even shown that this low-impact exercise can help lower blood pressure, bad cholesterol, and control blood sugar levels.  And the best part?  You can program a customized swim and control the intensity of the current to best suit your needs.
