There’s no better way to beat the heat while getting your body ready for the upcoming season than to do your daily workout.

Here are 5 of the best!
No matter your level of fitness, you should always include a stretch before and after any workout routine. The good news is that you don’t even have to learn anything new. Whether you’re an expert yogi or still doing the calisthenics you learned in high school gym class, most of the stretches you do already can be done in the water. You can even turn up the water temperature in your Swim Spa to help those muscles loosen and relax as you ease into your workout.
Running takes a toll on the body, especially on the knees and ankles. The buoyancy of the water in the Swim Spa will drastically reduce your body weight, which will eliminate stress on those joints. Use the underwater treadmill and the adjustable swim current will give you the perfect resistance whether you’re more like the tortoise or the hare or anywhere in between. Plus, you’ll get the added benefit of a core and upper body workout just by moving through the water. Fitness just doesn’t get simpler or more effective than that.
The unique advantage of a Swim Spa is that you have the boundlessness of open ocean in the comfort of your own backyard. Swimming is well-known to be one of the most versatile workouts imaginable. Unlike at the gym, where you’re likely alternating days between legs, arms, back, etc., you’ll be engaging the whole body at once. Add a swim tether to guide your stroke and you’ll feel like you have a personal coach at your side.
You can focus in on your core and upper body with some resistance bands. Want to isolate your pectorals to build tone in your chest? Or maybe you want to burn pesky belly fat. Try 3 sets of 15 reps at a comfortable resistance level and build up slowly. You’ll see results in no time.
Add the Row Bar Kit with Resistance Gear to your Swim Spa to pump up the cardio in your workout. It’s easy to install and a breeze to get rowing to destination fitness.
