Whilst the main use for a swim spa is very self-explanatory, swimming isn’t the only thing you can do in these luxury endless pools. These days, swim spas are becoming hugely popular for numerous reasons and many families up and down the UK are considering investing in them ready for summer this year.
It goes without saying that there are many benefits to installing a luxury swim spa into your garden and if you’re wondering whether you will get enough use out of your pool to justify the spend, keep reading today. The team at Hydropool Surrey have put together a list of alternative uses for your swim spa for you and the family.
Teach your children to swim confidently
Learning how to swim is so important and unfortunately, not all children have the opportunity to get in a pool regularly to learn. If you have a swim spa in your garden then not only can you help teach your children to feel comfortable in the water, but you can also turn them into confident little swimmers too.
Thankfully, the majority of AquaTrainer and AquaSport swim spas have the ability to adjust the current in your pool so, you can increase this as your children’s ability grows. You can provide your little ones with a comfortable environment for them to get used to being in the water and they can push themselves to learn a new skill.
Enjoy different water sports
Many people are unaware that you can actually purchase a lot of different add ons for your swim spa which makes a whole range of water sports possible. You really can undertake a variety of activities in your swim spa because it provides the water-resistance required.
Swim spas have plenty of room for you to be able to enjoy different water sports safely so, why not use this opportunity to teach yourself a new water sport. Of course, this is something that the whole family can enjoy too so, why not invest in a couple of different add ons for endless fun.
Relaxation and ‘you time’
Whilst you may think that a swim spa is all about exercise, actually they work in a very similar way to a hot tub. These days, you can invest in a jetted swim spa that has a specific separate seating area so, you can use them to sit back and relax too.
You may be surprised to hear that are so many scientifically proven health benefits to taking some ‘you time’ in both a hot tub and swim spa so, even if you only get 10 or 15 minutes alone before you’re joined by the kids, you will still see the benefits.
Play various water games
Another way to get your children to spend time in the water is to play a range of fun water games. It isn’t often that you get a whole pool to yourselves and, it isn’t uncommon for water games to be banned in some public swimming pools, so make the most of your own private swim spa.
There are lots of different water games that are specifically designed with children in mind and a simple search on the internet will bring up lots for you to enjoy. These games really do have the ability to help your little ones create a positive relationship with the water.
Tether a boogieboard to the end and let your children board on the jets, use a float and turn your swim spa into a lazy river.
Undertake numerous different workouts
Other than just swimming, there is a vast range of other workouts that you can undertake in your swim spa. Pretty much anything that you can do on land can be undertaken in the water from aquatic Yoga and Zumba to targetted lower or upper body workouts, your options are endless.
Working out underwater is also much lower-impact making it better for your joints, and it also prompts muscle growth due to the added resistance of the water. You will never have to pay for a gym membership again.
On our Swim Spa Trainers series there are two preset running programs, Hill Climb and Interval you can also program your own HIT training. Or, you can invest in some resistance weights and you can use your swim spa for Aquatic Cross Training which delivers a full body workout with minimal impact
SwimSpas also come with specially designed water watches so you can monitor your exercise and share on your favourite app, like Strava. Please refer to our swim spa brochure for more detail.

All in all, there are so many different ways that you and your family can enjoy spending time in your swim spa, and you can guarantee that with the multiple uses of this pool you will definitely get your money’s worth.
