Swim spas provide a space for exercise and relaxation, so you don’t even have to move when you’ve finished your workout. This blog is the ultimate guide to swim spas.
What is a swim spa?
A swim spa is essentially a bigger hot tub with more functions. Swim spas are great for people wanting to get into shape or for swimmers wanting to work out with more privacy.
The words ‘exercise’ and ‘spa’ may not sound as if they go together, but swim spas certainly ensure that they do. Intelligent technology within swim spas creates an artificial current so that it feels as if you’re swimming up and down the lanes in a swimming pool – except in the spa you don’t need to bother turning around at the end, bonus!
Exercise in the spa doesn’t have to stop there, you can perform aqua aerobics and other exercises inside your spa.
Benefits of a swim spa
There are many benefits attached to owning a swim spa, these include –
Plenty of room for family and friends
Even the smallest of swim spas will provide a decent amount of space for those all important get togethers. With multiple people in the spa, there will still be enough room for some family games such as catch with an inflatable ball.
Fantastic exercise abilities
As well as swimming and aqua aerobics, you can purchase other equipment to enhance your swim spa exercise journey. Swim spas are perfect for those at any stage in their exercise journey, offering the ability to increase or decrease effort levels to suit each person’s needs.
A luxurious place to relax
Not only do these spas have plenty of room, they also have comfortable seats. The number of seats will vary in each spa but the information should be easy to find. The hydrotherapy jets included in your spa will help your muscles to relax regardless of whether you’ve just completed some exercise or you’ve had a long day.
There are so many health benefits associated with owning a swim spa, these can include lowered blood pressure, weight loss, increased blood circulation, reduction of aches and pains and better sleep. The warm yet comfortable water temperature combined with high quality jets is sure to relax your body.
How much are swim spas?
There’s no denying that a swim spa is a luxury item and therefore you can expect a reasonably large price tag. Before you purchase your spa, you’ll most likely be conducting lots of research into various brands, models and distributors. It is definitely worth looking around to find the best deal for you, but you’ll need to compare prices across retailers, if a deal looks too good to be true, it probably is.
A top quality swim spa will range between £19,000 and £48,000. Obviously the swim spa that you choose must be suitable for your needs and after completing your research, you should have a good idea of what price range to expect. When buying a hot tub, you should also find out about any added extras such as delivery and a protective cover. A good quality swim spa should last a long time with good care and maintenance.
