Running is an amazing way to care for our bodies. It can help us prevent dangerous conditions like heart disease and high blood pressure and live happier lives. But, a long workout can be hard on our muscles, keeping us from performing our best.
Here are 3 ways runners can take care of their muscles using a hot tub.
1 - Stretching Made Easy - Experts recommend stretching before a hard workout to protect your muscles. Stretching keeps your muscles flexible, allowing them to bend, not break, even when worked hard and fast. Before a run, warm up in the hot tub for at least 10 minutes to get the blood and oxygen flowing to your muscles. With muscles warmed, it’s easy to stretch quadriceps, hamstrings, calves and back without injury.
2 - Warm Water Massage - Rigorous exercise creates soreness, causing runners to tense up. And, tense muscles are more susceptible to injury. Enjoy a 20-minute soak and massage in a hot tub after every run. A warm, jet stream massage keeps muscles relaxed and protected. As warm water targets sore areas, the body releases relaxing and pain-blocking endorphins into your system, helping reduce post-workout pain.
3 - Get a Great Night’s Sleep - Studies show that deep sleep helps our bodies heal from demanding days. If you’re running a lot, your muscles need to heal between runs. Help your body rest with a warm evening soak in a hot tub. A relaxing dip raises your body temperature. Then, as your body cools after your soak, it mimics your natural deep sleep temperature drop. Slip into bed and enjoy a relaxed, rejuvenating night’s sleep.
So Go Ahead, Take a Soak, You Deserve it! It’s, fast, fun and relaxing. Not only that, it’s good for the body, soothes the mind and can improve your overall health and well-being.

With so many incredible benefits, the modern swim spa is a popular home investment. One great reason to bring one home is your health!
Here are three ways to maximize long-term health with a swim spa at home.
Exercise in Water Aquatic exercise leads to tremendous health benefits. With a swim spa at home, a fun aquatic workout is easy; just add resistance bands to each side of your swim spa, or use free weights to push against water.
Strengthen the Heart with Underwater Walking A swim spa equipped with a treadmill is a safe cardiovascular workout. Walking in water conditions the lower body, while strengthening the heart too. The swim spa lets you find the perfect resistance so you can push your workout to the limit, adjusting up or down as needed.
Reduce Stress, Improve Sleep Having a swim spa at home means you can swim laps and exercise whenever the mood strikes. But the best swim spas also have a hot tub spa. Having both, a nonstop current and a hot tub spa, reducing stress and preparing for a good night’s sleep is easy.

“Most New Year’s Resolutions never become a reality for a variety of reasons, but for many it’s because people don’t give themselves the tools, they need to make real changes in their lives,” says Melinda Dalacas, manager of Southwest Spas and Pools. Change is hard but having support from loved ones and the best tools possible to make life better will help substantially. A hot tub can solve both support and tool issues. Here are three ways hot tubs help people keep their New Year’s Resolutions.
Soaking the Relaxing Water of a Hot Tub for Focus – The soothing, temperature-controlled water of a hot tub relaxes both body and mind, allowing people to maintain focus on what they’re trying to accomplish. It doesn’t take long for the portable spa to do its work. Just a few minutes in the buoyant water takes the pressure off the body, relieves nerves and lets people take their mind off worldly problems so they can envision what is needed to make their dreams real.
Meditating in the Hot Tub to Visualize Big Concepts – Part of making big changes a reality is the ability to see what those changes will mean for people in their lives. Using the backyard portable spa to quiet their mind and body and meditate on what seeing their goals through will mean for them helps strengthen their resolve to doing everything it takes to get it done.
A Hot Tub in the Backyard Provides Balance to a Fast-Paced Life – Wedging in the work necessary to make changes of any type in an already busy life can feel insurmountable. It can also create such a burden that people begin to breakdown due to fatigue. Having a hot tub to escape to at the end of the day, refresh the mind and body, and just reward the efforts of the day helps people feel better about themselves and the work they are doing to make life better.
When people soak in a hot tub, the obvious physical relief is immediate. There’s more to the way a hot tub makes people feel better and gives them new energy though. When enjoying the massaging action of the powerful water jets of a hot tub, the brain releases dopamine and serotonin. These hormones are important in helping people enjoy life and survive difficult times. The release of the body’s natural feel-good hormones can get people through just feeling down, or work through heavy depression from the difficulty of tough changes that would otherwise be forgotten no matter how good the change would be.
