There are loads of different ways of exercising these days from the traditional gym to group classes – but have you ever considered the amazing benefits that are associated with aquatic workouts? As we enter the new year and getting healthy becomes a priority for many, finding new and exciting ways to workout isn’t always easy. Did you know that most of your traditional exercises are even more effective when performed in water? Here at The Hot Tub & Swim Spa Company, we’ve outlined how water-based exercises can have immense benefits for both your physical and mental health.
Working out in water can provide significant physical advantages. Research has shown that water-based exercises are better for those who suffer from arthritis since the buoyancy of the water lessens the impact on joints, meaning that there is less risk of injury. Aquatic workouts also support good bone health. This is because the water forces the body upright, supporting balance and can lead to an increase in bone density.
Mental Health Benefits
Physical fitness is not the only factor that determines your health, your mental wellbeing is also equally as important to ensure overall wellness. Aquatic workouts are a great way to work on both your body and mind through rehabilitation. Exercising in the water has been found to help reduce both stress and anxiety. A home spa also provides the perfect setting for family and friends to spend quality time together and build long-lasting connections.
