Eve O'Connell3 years ago

Wyong locals, it's time to try something new!

There's a new trend sweeping the globe - exercise spas! These pools are specially designed to allow you to enjoy aquatic workouts at home, without needing the space of a full-length pool. What's more, when you exercise in the water, you can take away up to 90% of the weight you usually feel, making water-based exercises perfect for low-impact workouts and rehab exercise for injuries. Some exercise spas even have a post workout massage function! For all the low down on exercise spas, read on.

Hot tubs are just for indulging in, right?

Not anymore! Exercising while in water has a heap of benefits. For example:

  • It is suitable for all ages and abilities, as it has low-impact on muscles and bones.
  • Water supports 90% of your normal body weight, taking stress away from the joints.
  • Being more dense than air, water provides more resistance which is great for strength training.
  • The water pressure applied to your body helps your heart pump blood more efficiently.

If you have recently suffered an injury that has left you unable to exercise normally, looking into aqua rehabilitation exercises could be very beneficial. Check in with your local Wyong doctor or physiotherapist for more information.


There’s more than one type of hot tub

Depending on the type of exercise you like to do, there are a few different functions of exercise spas that could be perfectly matched to you.

Cardio & strength training

Swim spas

Swimming is a highly beneficial cardio exercise for all age groups, as it gets you using all your muscle groups in a mildly resistant environment. Swim spas allow you to swim against a variable current, so you can rear the benefits of swimming laps in just a few meters of water! Most swim spas also come with built-in therapy seats as well as standard seating, so you can use them for relaxation and entertaining as well.

Post-workout massage
