Exercising in water is ideal for all levels of fitness, the natural resistance from the water takes the weight and supports your body. This is an effective way to exercise if you struggle with joint pain or conditions like arthritis or fibromyalgia and want to do a low impact form of exercise. People who often exercise in water often see benefits like improved balance, increased flexibility and higher endurance levels.
A great benefit of our swim spas is that you can choose the difficulty level of your exercise by working against the current which can be increased or decreased depending on how you are feeling. The current of the water also helps you to build stabilizer muscles which are vital when it comes to injury prevention.
