Your Hydropool swim spa is for much more than a temperate swim.
At Goodall Pools & Spas, we’re passionate about helping our clients achieve their health and wellness goals. And our premium Hydropool swim spas provide the perfect at-home space to kickstart a fit new year!
Their versatile designs and customizable jets let you get creative with aquatic workouts that strengthen, condition, and rejuvenate from head to toe. Read on for eight exercises that will energize your swim spa sessions and start 2024 on the right foot.
Low Impact Swim Spa Cardio
Glide your way to improved cardiovascular health using your swim spa’s jets for resistance.
Walk forward, backward, and side-to-side at a challenging but comfortable pace as the currents provide a gentle yet effective workload for your heart and lungs. Vary your speed intervals, or add pool noodles for flotation to up the intensity.
This low-impact cardio will get your blood pumping!
Total Body Toning
Utilizing the full length of your swim spa, practice swimming laps using different strokes to build and balance muscle groups.
Front crawl, backstroke, and breaststroke repetitions target arms, shoulders, chest, legs, and core for head-to-toe toning. Use kickboards and pull buoys as needed to isolate specific areas.
Consistent swimming sculpts and defines that sought-after swimmer’s physique.
Swim Spa Stretches
Between swim sets or after workouts, unwind tight muscles with passive stretching in your heated swim spa. Let the warmth relax you as you reach long, breathing deeply to release tension from hips, hamstrings, shoulders, and more.
Stretching increases mobility, eases post-exercise soreness, and promotes circulation.
Turn up the jets and get your heart rate up with underwater treadmill-style running.
Lean into the currents for resistance, or use an aquatic belt for stability. Drive your knees high and focus on good form. You’ll have the benefits of land running with less impact on joints! Start slow if you are new to underwater running.
Core and Balance
Stand in thigh-deep water and practice balancing on one foot, extending your other leg and opposite arm. Engage your abs to stay centered. Feel the resistance! Switch sides and repeat.
For an added challenge, close your eyes. Enhancing core stability and balance assists overall fitness and injury prevention.
Get a full body burn by incorporating water weights, paddles, and aquatic resistance tools into your swim spa workout.
Move through squats, lunges, bicep curls, and more. The water’s drag intensifies each exercise for serious strength gains without harsh impact on joints. Use equipment that provides the right challenge level.
Relax and Recover
Let powerful Hydropool jets knead away post-workout muscle soreness and leave you fully rejuvenated.
Target achy areas by positioning them near individual jets. Boost circulation by alternating hot and cool soak temperatures. Active recovery in your swim spa’s therapeutic waters brings your body back into balance.
Conclude exercise sessions by turning the jets to low and soaking in stillness.
Deep breathing encourages your heart rate and respiration to gradually return to normal. Stretch out any lingering tension. Clear your mind as you integrate the physical and mental benefits of your swim spa workout.
