Want to get fit and healthy in 2017? A hot tub and swim spa can help

Every New Year’s Eve around one-third of us make a resolution to get fit and healthy in the year to come. For most of us, that resolution gets broken almost as quickly as it’s made. However, a hot tub and swim spa from a credible hot tub supplier, can be a great way to help you to stick to that resolution, with a raft of health benefits that can help you look and feel fabulous in 2017.

If you love swimming but don’t have access to a pool, a swim spa can be a surprisingly cost-effective and space-saving solution. Combined with the therapeutic benefits of a hot tub, you can enjoy healthy low and no-impact exercise and massage away those aches and pains.

Muscle strengthening

If you opt for a swim spa with powerful jets and a current to swim against, you can enjoy all the benefits of swimming while varying the intensity of your workout. Swimming is ideal if you need to lose weight, providing a complete cardio workout with calorie-burning total body exercise that has no impact on your joints. Instead, your muscles will strengthen as you work against the resistance provided by the water.

Better sleep

2017 is the year of clean sleep, and it’s set to be the big health trend this year. Getting sound sleep on a consistent basis makes us feel good, look great and age gracefully. Doctors have found that the deep sense of relaxation offered by a good soak in a hot tub is a key to achieving that solid 8 hours we all dream about.

Pain relief

Pay attention to the location and type of hydrotherapy jets in your hot tub and you’ll achieve relief from the aches and pains of everyday life. Exercise in a heated swim spa can give great relief from back pain because of the way the blood vessels dilate in the warm water and encourage better circulation. Increased circulation is also beneficial to diabetes sufferers. If you suffer from any type of joint pain, particularly arthritis, then a hot tub or spa can offer pain relief for muscle and joint aches, and support gentle exercise in an environment that aids the joints in a no-impact way.

Ease away stress

Simply lying back and relaxing in a hot tub, or using simple meditation techniques, can help to ease stress immeasurably. Enhance the experience by lighting scented candles and playing soothing music for the ultimate in total body stress management.
