Summer is here and that means shorter shorts and swimsuits. If you put on a few extra pounds over the winter, you might not look as good as you hoped you would in these lighter clothes. It happens to the best of us, but the good news is that you can do something about it.
Cardio And Calories
Swimming burns calories; that in itself is enough to help with weight loss. But, swimming also has a lot of cardio benefits that are excellent for your health. By using so many different muscles while swimming, your heart and lungs work harder to get the oxygen supply going through your body. When you breathe harder, it means that the workout is actually working! The more you work out, the stronger your heart and lungs will become and this can lower your heart rate and your blood pressure. You’ll not only lose weight, you’ll improve your overall health.
Water provides excellent resistance as you fight against the current and this will help you build muscle and upper body strength. Muscle burns fat, so you’ll begin to burn even more calories; even when the workout is over. So whether you’re doing the backstroke, the butterfly, or experimenting with water aerobics, swimming will get you back into those short-shorts in no time.
A swim spa is the perfect way to be sure that you get in your workout every day. By having a unit in your own backyard, you cut the gym membership fees, you won’t need to drive out to the facility, and you can do it on your own time; morning or night. Plus, you’ll have nothing but privacy as you work on getting back the body that you want the world to see.
Be sure to invest in a good, strong, easy to use spa cover by to keep your spa covered when not in use. The easy to use design means that you can open it and close it without having to enlist another person for help. Unlike the old fashioned foam-cored, Velcro-hinged, bi-fold units of the past, our covers will keep your unit fully covered without soaking up the water that can make them too heavy to move. Plus, our covers are UV resistant, meaning that they won’t fade like other covers do. And we offer several different colors to match your surroundings.
As you swim your way to weight loss, you’ll feel better just by knowing that your swim spa is being taken care of by a cover that will last. By the time summer is over, you’ll both still be looking good!
