Can a Swimming Pool Lead to a Healthier Lifestyle? You Bet!

There are many benefits to owning a pool in Miami. Having somewhere private to cool off on a hot day, throw barbecues and parties, and enjoy a workout from the privacy of your backyard make investing in a swimming pool totally worth it. If you are lucky enough to have your own pool, swimming is a great way to get in shape without joining a gym. Aside from avoiding the long lines and intimidating machinery at your local gym, there are additional health benefits when moving your workout into the water. If you do not have your own swimming pool, there are alternatives, and an AquaFit System may be the perfect pool alternative for you.

Using your swimming pool for exercise is easy and requires no additional equipment, just hop in your pool and work on your butterfly or backstroke. If you are looking for a well-rounded workout, swimming can strengthen, condition, and tone your body. Swimming stimulates all of the major muscle groups and has twelve times the resistance of air. With the addition of special water weights, you can take your new exercise regime to the next level. Swimming is the perfect exercise if you have arthritis, muscle damage, joint problems, or other injuries. The buoyancy provided by the water makes exercising easier on your body and less jarring than running or walking.

All Florida Pool and Spa carries the AquaFit System by Dimension One Spas. AquaFit allows you to do more than simply swim laps. A full underwater gym, this system allows you to walk, jog, run, stretch, row, or strength train. Once you add an AquaFit System to your life, pesky gym memberships will become a thing of the past. As you begin to swim, you focus solely on your workout. You will no longer be distracted by other gym goers, machine wait times, or your cell phone. It will be just you, the water, and your new fitness regime.
You don’t even have to hassle with permits to have one installed. The AquaFit System is also the only “Sunshine Approved” swim spa on the market. This means you can work out, swim, or soak virtually all day long without worrying about sun damage.

If you are tired of wasting time driving to and from the gym just to stand in line for your favorite machine, it is time to make the switch to swimming. Swimming improves cardiovascular health while toning your muscles and a system such as AquaFit ensures a great workout.
