What is a Swim Spa ?

Don't you wish....?

So you think you might want a swimming pool, but it costs too much money. So you thought about getting a hot tub spa instead, but they seem to be just too small. Don't you wish that someone would invent something that had all the best features of a pool and a spa combined, but at a really reasonable cost ? Well, your wish has come true because although Swim Spas have actually been around for a few years, they are just now becoming much more popular.

So exactly what is it anyway?

Quite simply, a Swim Spa is a machine that allows you to swim continuously against a water current. You never "hit the wall" or have to turn around to continue to swim laps like in a regular pool or a lap pool. Swim Spas provide the absolute best swimming exercise work out, using the least amount of space in your home or yard. Swim Spas also act as smaller swimming pools in the sense that you can play around in them, or with some of the split-models, you actually have a hot tub spa in one end of it and a swimming area in the other end.

Swim Spas come in a few different categories and sizes. Almost any type Swim Spa can facilitate an environment that will allow a person to exercise continuously, relax by just soaking in the warm water to sooth the mind and body, or spend time with family/friends in the comfort of your home. According to the American Heart Association, just 30-60 minutes of physical activity 3-4 days per week can help reduce your risk for heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. As a regular physical activity, swimming can also help lower your blood pressure and cholesterol.
