Specialized exercise pools are a great solution when homeowners don’t have enough space or a commercial facility wants to offer this option. These custom pools are smaller than regular ones and can be built in various sizes with different depths, depending on how much space you have and other requirements. But besides taking up less room, what else do these pool offer?
- The opportunity for aquatic exercise: If your yard isn’t big enough for a full-sized pool, you can still have the opportunity to benefit from water exercise with one of these pools. This low-impact activity can reduce stress, improve endurance and strength, and promote heart health. You can perform swimming strokes and other activities like swim aerobics and underwater weightlifting.
- Current generators: Exercise pools have swim current generators that create resistance, and the speed can be adjusted. This simulates actual swimming, so it feels like you’re doing laps. You can start out slow for a warmup, increase it, and then reduce it for your cooldown.
- No turning around: Since exercise pools are not lengthy, you won’t have to go underwater and turn around.
- Lower price, less maintenance: Small exercise pools cost less to purchase and install. They’re also easy to care for – test the water once a week, and clean with bleach.
A custom exercise pool can be your go-to for healthier living, and if you choose a larger size, you can fit more than one person in it at a time. For more information, give our office a call.
