Doctors are always fans of implementing an exercise routine into your life. Even a doctor that specializes in cardiology, will be the first to tell you that swimming and water aerobics are some of the best forms of exercise out there. No matter what your age, a swimming pool can help you tailor an exercise routine to your physical capabilities. Swimming is a great form of exercise for a wide variety of individuals, no matter their age. It is recommended that everyone should have at least 150 minutes of aerobic exercise per week. However, some forms of aerobics such as running or working out puts strain on the body and this can be difficult for people who are older or who suffer from chronic pain. A swimming pool is a wonderful way to receive aerobic exercise because it increases one’s heart rate without putting any extra strain on your joints. A swimming pool will give anyone an easy and convenient place to keep in shape.
You don't have to have a large backyard to swim laps and the pool doesn't have to be a rectangular design to have room to swim. All you need is a straight swimming lane from one end to the other. Linear designs, as well as freeform pools can give you an adequate swimming area. Where limited space is an issue a water treadmill unit may be just what you need. These devices provide an exhilarating water current that you can swim against and get the exercise you need. They are adjustable and can be installed in any size pool or spa.
Swim spas can give you the therapeutic benefits of a spa and the health benefits of a lap pool. We combine a small swimming pool with the water treadmill and a separate spa. The spa will overflow into the pool during normal operation and both bodies of water can be heated. These swim spas are becoming more popular in our urban areas where limited space becomes a design challenge. Check out our page on spas to read more about how a swim spa might be right for you.
There are several types and styles available to give you the best option for your lifestyle. Ask your design consultant what type of device will work for you and your Tampa pool.
