Seniors have unique health and fitness needs. Luckily, many of the ailments of senior years can be eased with proper diet and an active lifestyle. The good news? Fitness can be fun with the right tools.
Here’s how to promote senior health with an exciting swim spa at home.
Swim for Heart Health The defining characteristic of the swim spa is continuous lap swimming. With an adjustable current, you can swim laps without ever hitting the wall or turning around, and the current is adjustable for all levels. So set the current at a comfortable pace and swim daily to keep the heart in tip top shape.
Water Cardio for Weight Maintenance Underwater walking works muscles in the legs, back and hips. A few minutes each day makes it easy to maintain a healthy body weight, reducing risk of heart disease and diabetes. Using a swim spa makes it super convenient to stay fit.
Increase Joint Flexibility and Strength Stiff, inflexible joints impact millions of seniors, leading to pain and discomfort. A swim spa can help in 2 ways: build strength to prevent muscle loss and light stretching for easier movement. With buoyancy to support and cushion damaged joints, stretching in the swim spa is easy and fun.
So Go Ahead, Take a Swim, 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.
