A Michael Phelps Signature Swim Spa allows you benefit from water exercise without heading to the local pool. A low-impact form of fitness, you can improve your hear health and strength when you do regular water workouts.
Have you ever noticed a sense of weightlessness in the water? The buoyancy and resistance help relieve pressure on the joints while supporting your body. Taking fitness activities to the water allows you to improve your flexibility, mobility, balance, strength, and endurance.
Water is an ideal environment for all fitness levels. Exercise with a gentle current (or no current) as you get started. As you gain fitness, you can increase the difficulty by speeding up the flow of water or placing the equipment under water.
An added benefit: For people who struggle with pain during land-based exercise, water allows you to work out without the discomfort.
There are many activities that you can enjoy in a Michael Phelps Swim spa.
- Water running
- Water walking
- Aqua therapy
- Strength training
One of the benefits of owning a swim spa is that you can regularly incorporate exercise into your routine. You can exercise based on your schedule, while reducing the time it takes to get to the gym. All you have to do is walk outside and open up the spa!
The temperature of the water can also be adjusted based on your comfort level and the activity. A temperature in the mid-80s is ideal for swimming, while aqua therapy should be done in warm water ·(up to 92 degrees).
