One of the hottest exercise machines on the market today is swim spas. Swimming has long been on the hot list for exercise enthusiasts due to its overall conditioning and low impact on the body. Home Swim Spas accommodates those who deal with stiff joints or fragile bones that might be injured by the impact of traditional land exercises.

Swimming is a good whole-body exercise that is ideal for people with arthritis, weight limitations or those who are coming back from an injury. For over weight people, exercise can be very painful as their weight is hard on their knees and bones. Exercising in a swim spa helps take some of that pressure off. When immersed to the waist in water, your body bears just 50% of its weight; immersed to the chest, it’s 25%-35%; and to the neck, 10%.

Many athletes use our stainless steel swim spas to rehabilitate after injury. Patients who deal with arthritis or other disabilities use water exercises or swimming to improve fitness and range of motion and to relieve pain and stiffness. Because the water helps with buoyancy, injured users can work out harder and longer because there is not as much pounding on their bodies.

Swimming is perhaps the best exercise that one can get because it works out all the major muscle groups, including the shoulders, back, abdominals, legs, hips, and glutes.
