Benefits from Exercising in Your Pool

on . Posted in Katy TX Pool, Patio, Grill, Hot Tub Blog and News

Fitness--a-young-couple-manThere are many benefits of working out in your swimming pool. It is easy to stay cooler in your pool, and the workout has many benefits. Here are some benefits:

A thirty minute workout in a pool burns about 300 calories.  Note: to remove a pound of fat takes 3500 calories.  It is recommended to work out three to four times per week, so only four weeks will result in weight loss.

Pool exercise builds cardio endurance.  In cooler water, your blood moves through the body at a faster rate to warm it up.  Then when you add an aerobic program the result is an improved cardiovascular performance.

Because the buoyancy of the water, and the lack of impact that joints and muscles receive, trainers are encouraged to perform pool workouts on off days. Pool workouts are an alternative recovery days of a strenous program. Not only can fat burning continue, but the active training can help build muscle quicker while continued conditioning occurs.

Water helps lessen the feelings of fatigue because it's supporting so much of the body's weight. Also, flexibility results due to the wider range of motion the body can achieve due to the absence of gravity acting on the joints.

Like any regular exercise, pool workouts are great stress relievers. The exercise stimulates the brain to release endorphins  making the body feel good. When performing pool exercises in warmer water temperatures, the movement of water against and over the body results in both massage and relaxation.

If you're a strong swimmer then even in the deep end your workout does not require any additional equipment. Due to the resistance of water, pool workouts in just waist or chest high water is quite effective for weight loss, cardio and strength training.

The benefits of pool workouts are many and with a pool from Casual Patio are numerous.  Consider your own Above Ground Pool for your Houston Area home.

  • All that really matters is for the people you love to be happy and healthy. Everything else is extra sauce on the ribs.
  • Where I live in Texas, it's all ranchers. My friends are all cowboys and pretty rough guys. If I had a hot tub back there, I may as well have Richard Simmons come over and live with me. I just won't tell 'em.
  • I often want to drown my troubles, but I can't get my husband to go swimming.
