Swim Spa Advantages Over Swimming Pools

We all know the benefits of owning a swimming pool. However, sometimes the costs and space considerations are simply too much. What you may not know is that there is an alternative without the price tag or space required. Swim spas have most of the benefits of a swimming pool but can be installed into a smaller space and are much cheaper.

You can think of a swim spa as being similar to hot tubs in that they are small, self contained tubs. They can placed inside the home or outside in the backyard on a deck, patio or flat piece of ground. The idea is that you swim in the tub and the current produced by the swim spa pushes against you when you are swimming in much the same way as a treadmill keeps you in one place when walking on it.

One of the main advantages of a swim spa in Camp Verde AZ is the easy installation process. Unlike a swimming pool, there is no requirement to excavate your backyard. Once the installation is complete, many people either install a small deck around the spa or landscape with paving or plants.

By using a swim spa regularly you will get fit and toned by swimming.

Is a Swim Spa Pool a Good Choice for You?

What is a swimmer's build?

Broad shoulders, the classic V-shape, defined abdominals, muscular powerful arms and the overall appearance of having a toned sportsman-like physique.  The "perfect" swimmer's build will have a low body fat percentage of about 12% to show definition, but not into low single figures where every vein is showing like a long distance runner or cyclist. The swimmer's build is also a very different look to a body builder. It is the "high level of muscle tone with a lack of bulk" (defined by wisegeek.com) that women and gay men find universally attractive.

How much swimming do I need to do?

It is up to you! Just swimming is NOT the most effective way of getting a swimmer's build. It should be seen as a great cardiovascular exercise (cardio). However, swimming is not an effective way to add muscle. The resistance of the water is too low to develop muscle for anyone above the early teenage years where testosterone levels shape their body.

How Swimming Will Make You a Better Singer

Many health professionals and doctors now agree that infants as young as 1 month can be taken to the pool. They also say that initiating children early on to water can be beneficial to them learning to swim. So now you can have fun with your young children in the pool and also have fun choosing the right swimwear for them. Most retailers sell swimwear for toddlers beginning from the age of 3 to 12 months. It is rather difficult to find swimwear for newborns who are less than 3 months.

This may not pose a problem for most parents, as the natural consensus is that children as young as that would be far better swimming without any clothes on. There are many choices of swimwear for children and one of them is swim diapers. This is especially ideal for parents who are worried about 'accidents' that might happen in the pool. Although chlorination of the pool water would take care of any side effects of any 'accidents', parents are still unsure of the consequences. This was especially true.
