Hot Tubs & Swim Spas

How about you would like a Hot Tub, but you don’t think you would use it as much as you think?


At the end of the day, these are luxuries that come down to finance. But at the end of “a” day, are they ever nice! I can tell you that a daily dip in your hot tub to work those strained muscles we all get will make a big difference in your life.


Dr Rhonda Patrick has written many articles about the benefits of hot tubs, saunas, cold baths and cryotherapy. Besides the relaxation and muscle therapy achieved in a hot tub, you actually burn about 68 calories just sitting there. No, that’s not just water you're sweating out; it’s actual calories.


How about a Swim Spa? You could just go to the gym and use the pool there, right? Is that a good use of time? Time is money, and healthy living adds time.


Swim spas are about double the length of a hot tub but serve a dual purpose. First, they have a lounge area with seating like a hot tub and heat to the allowed 104 degrees Fahrenheit. The second purpose is that you can swim uninterrupted for as far as you can without hitting the pool wall and having to turn around by tethering yourself to the end. The health and rehabilitation benefits are never-ending. So are you a person who’s not meeting the recommended 10,000 steps a day or gets bored on the treadmill? Maybe someone who thinks beer is colder when the water is warmer?
