The powerful vents and jets in the spas offer resistance but allows you to exercise in a low impact way. Swim spa exercise also facilitates weight loss.
  • Relief from stress and pain. The location and type of hydrotherapy jets offer soothing relief to aching body parts. Exercising in a swim spa can also alleviate back pain because when you’re in the heated water your blood vessels dilate and this facilitates blood flow and increased circulation.
