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 Sun City 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?

Without maintenance, a swimming pool will not have the look that it requires. It can be a disaster if this amenity is not appealing, especially if it is located in a public place where clients and customers wish to use the facility on regular basis. Aside from health issues, people will likely complain if they are paying extra money for the use of the pool facilities. Even small and private swimming pools need to be taken care of on very regular basis. They will have to be maintained and cleaned, and there are some very good automatic pool cleaners that can be used wisely.

The kind of water being used is very important factor that needs to be addressed when cleaning tools are installed, as the quality of the water will make a lot of difference to the cleaning process. Suction side automatic pool cleaners can be very good and economical, as they will not need an extra pump installed to be able to run and this can prove to be economical and easy to maintain.

The Benefits of Swim Spas

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.
