There are many reasons to construct a swim spa addition in your backyard. Whether it is to create the perfect backyard of your dreams or if you want to improve the state of your overall health, a swim spa is a great investment.
For the Home
A swim spa can fit into even the smallest yards and will not take up as much room as a pool. The difference is when you purchase a swim spa you are saving money and still reaping all the benefits of a traditional swimming pool; minus the extra costs and maintenance headaches.
A standard size swim spa will take around twelve feet of space in your backyard and holds only about 1500 gallons of water, as opposed to a pool that holds 15,000 to 40,000 gallons of water. Due to its smaller size, it also greatly reduces the number of chemicals you will need to maintain it, and you will save on heating costs.
For Your Health
If you are an athlete, a trainer, or someone that works out daily as part of their routine, then a swim spa can greatly aid you in your fitness goals. Aqua therapy is great because the warm water can help with the following:
- Muscle relaxation
- Improved Circulation
- Resistance Training
- Soothe sore and aching joints
Also, there is a variety of equipment you can get so that you can perform other exercises in a swim spa. Remember, you are not just limited to swimming:
- Aqua bikes and paddle wheels-These can be completely submerged and helps to increase upper body strength
- Weights and Aqua dumb bells-Strengthen, tone, and improve upper body strength
- Swim tether-Great for resistance training
- Exercise bands-Use also with rowing bars to perform strengthening exercises
- Aqua gloves-Gives you better grip under the water and more control over your movements during your training regime
Heat therapy is always good after a vigorous workout because it helps relieve all those muscles and joints you were working. It also helps to calm your body and mind. Swim spas are good for stress reduction, and the warm water provides a safe and soothing environment.
After a long workout and your stress reduction, the last thing you want to do is fight with those traditional swim spa covers that are made from foam. The old foam covers tend to soak up all the water over time, and it causes them to become extremely heavy and awkward for one person to remove or put back on.
An End 2 End Swim Spa Cover only requires one person and one simple motion to roll it back or roll it back on with ease. There is no fighting with heavy and waterlogged foam. Plus, the End 2 End Swim Spa Cover has a UV protected rainfly, so it will last longer than a traditional cover and maintain all the heat in your swim spa so that it is always heated and ready to go.
