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.

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.
