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 Phoenix 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?

Swimming pools have been around for a long time, and you have probably seen many different types of them. One kind of pool, however, has been making a splash lately - the lap pool. I lap pool in unique in that it is designed to be ideal for health and fitness exercises rather than for pure recreation and leisure. Lap pools are much smaller than recreational swimming pools, usually about 5 feet long with a narrower width. This small size, combined with the fact that they can be either above ground or in ground, makes lap pools ideal for those living duplexes or townhouses where space may be very limited.

If you're looking for a fun and relaxing way to improve your health but you have limited space available for traditional equipment, a lap pool may be perfect to suit your needs.

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.

Is a Swim Spa Pool a Good Choice for You?

Pools are a big deal, and usually, a big, expensive deal. That's why anytime someone starts thinking about getting one, the question will come up. For me, I did tons of research, but liked what I saw most of all when I started pouring through Endless pool reviews. The good and the bad (and yes, there were both), painted a pretty accurate picture, and I counted myself ready to take the next step.

As soon as I got to that point though, there was the question: How much do Endless pools cost, anyway? I braced for the sticker shock, but was pleasantly surprised in this regard.

Swimming is one of the best forms of exercise you can undertake. It's easy on your joints (unlike jogging, or even power walking, which can wreck your knees and ankles in short order), and one of the simplest ways to lose weight and improve your cardiovascular health. If you're looking at the possibility of getting a home pool, you would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn't at least give Endless pools swimming.

A Quick Look at the Residential Endless Pool

Swimming pools have become common features of most large homes. Indoor and outdoor pools are great for exercise, leisure and therapy. If you are the proud owner of a swimming pool in your terrace or backyard, then you should pay proper attention to its maintenance. Pool safety and maintenance go hand in hand. Just as you install a high fence around your outdoor pool to prevent kids from entering the pool area under unsupervised conditions, it is important to ensure that the pool water is hygienic and safe to use. A combination of filtration and chemical treatment programs will do the trick. Here are some tips on good swimming pool maintenance.

Maintain optimum chemical levels

Maintain the chlorine content of your pool to optimum levels to ensure adequate protection against bacteria. You can buy sticks or tablets of chlorine and mix them gradually into the pool with chlorine feeder or just let them float in the water. Avoid mixing the chlorine too fast as it will leave lumps of unmixed.
