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.
