Soothe sore muscles with a swim spa
When the temperature drops and your muscles are sore, a steamy soak in the swim spa is the perfect antidote. The calming combination of water warmth and optimal spa pressure is perfect to soothe muscles, relax and reset.
For those who experience pain, swelling, cramps, stiffness, inflammation or injury, swim spas may offer therapeutic benefits. A soak in a heated spa may relieve muscle tension, provide comfort and encourage your body to slow down and heal.
Escape the cold weather
There are many reasons to use your swim spa frequently in winter, but ensuring you keep warm, de-stress and unwind after a chilly day are at the top of the list. Using the swim spa before bed may also improve your sleeping patterns due to relaxation of the body and mind.
Depending on where you live, and how cold it gets, the winter months can feel long, but it’s wonderful to not feel trapped indoors. Utilising your swim spa outdoors where the air is crisp but the water is steamy provides a refreshing yet cosy way to kick back and enjoy an evening.
Whether you like to spa solo or with friends — one of the popular choices for a single zone swim spa is the ‘Oasis Platinum Swim Spa‘ which is a 5.5 metre elite unit, with 4 turbo swim jets and 8 layer insulation. Like all of our swim spas, it sports power saving technology which gets the environmental tick and also saves on your electricity bill.
Use your swim spa for light exercise
In the cooler months, staying on top of your exercise routine can be a challenge. Yet dedicating time to activity, health and wellbeing has enormous benefits. If your schedule is busy and you still want to stay fit — a swim spa can be useful for more than just R&R.
The types of physical activities you can enjoy in a swim spa include:
- • Swimming
- • Squats or lunges
- • Jumping jacks
- • Reverse crunches
- • Jogging
- • Flutter kicks
- • Tricep dips
Water buoyancy reduces the weight that joints, bones and muscles have to bear, which can make light exercise in the swim spa an excellent alternative to land exercise.
