How to Stay Active and Fit with a Swim Spa: Fun Workouts at Home

Did you know that you can use your swim spa to work out? Not only that but water-based workouts can be really effective, whether you are looking to build strength and endurance or in need of a low-impact way to get high-impact results. Staying active and fit is simple to do when you have a swim spa at home.

What’s the best way to work out in a swim spa?

Experts say that it’s highly effective to commit to short bursts of activity, especially when you first start working out. That also makes it easier to fit your workouts into your day - and the easier it is to get your workout done, the more likely you are to be consistent with it. A 15-minute workout, for example, can be incredibly effective. In fact, according to the medical journal The Lancet, 15 minutes of physical activity a day can reduce the risk of early death. So, a regular 15-minute workout is the key to preserving your physical health in the long-term - and can also have a lot of positive mental health benefits too. Whether you’re looking for weight loss, strength building or just a sociable way to get active and connect with friends or family, your swim spa is a great place to do it.

How does exercising in your swim spa work?

The swim spa generates a continuous current - if you want to swim as your form of exercise then you can use this current to swim against for as far (or as long) as you like. But that’s not all that you can do in a swim spa. You can also jog and walk against the current, as well as using it for other exercises. The water can provide excellent strength-building resistance, as well as a way to soften the impact of gravity when you’re working out.

15-minute workouts that you can do in your swim spa at home

  • A workout for beginners: up to 20 reps each of inner rotator cuff and outer rotator cuff exercises, followed by step downs and step-up lunges (10 each). You can then move into stretching with 15 seconds of a hip stretch, a hip flexor stretch, lumbar extension, hamstring strength and shoulder stretch.
  • A workout to build endurance. Start with 20 trunk twists on each side, followed by sun gods for one minute in each direction. Move on to the legs with 20 reps each of step downs and calf raises, followed by working the arms with bicep curls and band rows (20 reps each). Move onto a tricep extension for 20 reps and a band chest press for 20 reps.

If you want to stay fit and active then there are huge advantages in speed and convenience if you can do this at home. A swim spa also enables you to build endurance - and minimise the potential for injury. Plus, you only need to do 15-minutes a day to see real results. We offer servicing and post-sales care for all of our customers to make sure that our customers get the best out of their hot tub.
