Parkinson’s Live Well Program

This program is designed to help improve the body rigidity that people with Parkinson’s often experience, enabling muscles to relax and regain flexibility. Using the swim spa water’s natural resistance to support the body, allows for increased freedom of movement, and improves coordination and muscle function.

Recovering from Knee Surgery or Injury

This swim spa exercise program focuses on flexibility, strength, coordination, and most importantly—alignment of the body. Because knee pain often stems from a lack of mobility in the hip and ankle, the combination of the movements in this program are designed to target both areas to decrease stress and ultimately alleviate knee symptoms.

Multiple Sclerosis Live Well Program

This swim spa wellness program was developed to improve motion and flexibility for anyone living with multiple sclerosis. The swim spa water offers low-impact exercise as opposed to some on-land workouts. It also gives the body greater freedom of movement and often lessens the pain associated with multiple sclerosis by improving flexibility, strength, balance and coordination. From adjusting the water temperature during your workout, to utilizing the propulsion system and massage jets, the water supports and relaxes stiff muscles.

The Post-Op Hip Replacement or Hip Injury Recovery Program benefits those who are looking to train before, or recover after, a hip surgery, as well as those who experience chronic hip pain or muscle tightness.

Shoulder Injury

The exercises in this injury recovery program use the swim spa water to relieve shoulder pain and are designed to improve posture, alignment, and flexibility, as well as help prevent future injuries.

Aquatic Weight Loss

The Weight Loss Aquatic Exercise Program is a full-body, fat-blasting workout in your swim spa. This program starts with a dynamic warmup, and then turns up the volume on calorie burning by combining comprehensive upper and lower body workouts with interval training and fat-burning cardio. As an added challenge, increase the time and speed of your workout, or use the swim spa propulsion to add resistance.

Improving Your Golf Swing

This swim spa exercise program is tailored to golfers, helping to restore mobility and improve strength. By reducing the pull of gravity on the body, the swim spa water, in conjunction with this exercise program, will help provide greater freedom of movement. It may also help to reduce hip tightness and lower back pain, as well as improve hip rotation. Ultimately, these exercises help to retrain your body to have better patterning and positioning when you return to the golf course.
