Benefits of Owning a Riptide Hot Tub, Swim Spa or Exercise Pool
The therapeutic benefits of regular exercise are well documented, and swimming is one of the most fun and fulfilling ways to get the whole family fitter and more active. According to the American Water Fitness Association, swimming provides individuals with several physical and mental benefits. Some of them include improved strength and flexibility, enhanced muscular stamina and balance, a stronger heart, and better physique or figure.
If you are having a stressful day and you find it difficult to relax and unwind, this is where a hot tub is a great addition to any household. The warmth of the water, the massage from the jets and the variety of colours you can choose to set the atmosphere, just grab a drink and relax and enjoy it by yourself or with the company of friends and family.
For Fitness & Health
The counter-currents in our exercise pools are fully adjustable to suit the individual – from a gentle flow to a full-on force that is a challenge for even Olympic standard swimmers. Swimming against these powerful counter-currents is an extremely healthy activity, providing an excellent cardiovascular workout, strengthening your heart muscles, and improving the delivery of oxygen to the different parts of the body, as well as toning up your body in a low impact environment.
A Riptide swim spa can also help with weight control and can relieve your mind from stress and tension, fuelling your energy levels. This will keep you in perfect shape, physically as well as mentally.
Swimming burns around 3 calories a mile per pound of body weight. For instance, if you weigh 150 lbs and it takes you roughly about 30 minutes to swim one mile, then you can expect to lose 900 calories in one hour.
Being more compact than standard swimming pools, our Swim Spas can be installed where space is at a premium, either in-ground or above ground. Thermostatically controlled up to 40°C, Riptide swim spas allow you to lay back after your swim and relax in the warm, clear water with family and friends.
Our hot tubs range in size to suit your garden and family needs, whether or not you will be relaxing by yourself or with your family there is a spa to suit you. With water edge lighting and water features in some of our models this allows you to set an atmosphere to relax and enjoy yourself.
With most models, you have the added benefit of the adjustable massage jets, which allow you to relax and enjoy the invigorating hydrotherapy of the jets as they soothe your muscles after a long day. As an optional extra for our hot tubs you can get the handheld massage which enables you to massage the muscles at the front of your body that the seat jets can’t reach.
For Family Fun
Because the force of the counter current jets is fully adjustable, children still learning to swim, and those less able, can set the power to suit their strength levels.
Requiring very little cleaning, Riptide Swim Spas incorporate cutting-edge filtration and sanitising systems, ensuring a clean and safe pool experience for you and your family every time you take a dip. Keeping heat in and the weather out, the insulated lid on our swim spas has lockable straps ensuring unsupervised children can’t get in when you’re not around either.
With a variety of sizes and specifications in the Riptide range, we make it easy for you to choose the right model to suit you and your family.
