Three Ways a Fiberglass Pool Can Help You Focus on Healthy Habits

1. Create Your Own Personal Space

It’s been said the environment in which you reside has a significant impact on your overall health and well-being. If you endeavor to embrace a healthier lifestyle – and mindset – in the New Year, perhaps it is time to focus on your physical space. In other words, it’s important to create the intention to incorporate more physical activity into your life. With a fiberglass swimming pool, you can find many ways to exercise in the water. A fiberglass inground pool is like having your own personal fitness center.

2. The Power of Repetition

Repetition in some respects in life can be boring and dull. However, when it comes to improving your overall fitness, a backyard pool is an ideal tool by which to reach your health goals on a daily basis. First of all, if just driving to and from the gym every day steals your motivation, then imagine how easy it will be to walk out your back door right into your own health club. Secondly, if you are not a big fan of crowds, you can enjoy working out undisturbed in the comfort of your own backyard. Finally, because of the many inspiring colors in the stylish color range offered by Leisure Pools™, you can choose a bright and inviting color that reflects not only the gorgeous sun above but also your true personality. A sparkling body of water can be quite the motivator to get in the pool and start exercising.

3. Just Have a Great Time

Granted, a lot of people might consider daily workouts too routine and difficult to maintain. With a fiberglass pool from Leisure Pools™, though, it will be much easier to stick to your agenda and reach your fitness goals. Why go to a stinky, crowded, sweaty gym when you can glide into the luxurious water of your own backyard pool?

The Benefits of Exercising in the Pool

Due to the simple fact water provides more resistance than air, working out in your backyard pool can actually make the workouts you do on dry land more challenging. Therefore, they can have a greater impact on your fitness level.

By engaging your muscles in the water, you increase your strength, endurance, and flexibility.  Plus, the buoyance of the water offers additional support for your joints and muscles.  Additionally. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that for individuals who suffer from joint conditions (osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, for example), working out in the water is an ideal form of exercise.

Further, working out in your backyard pool is a gentler type of exercise for those who have osteoporosis, balance issues, and fibromyalgia. It’s the perfect way to create healthy habits.

First of all, if just driving to and from the gym every day steals your motivation, then imagine how easy it will be to walk out your back door right into your own health club.

3. Jumping Jacks

When you do jumping jacks in the water, you give your muscles in both the upper and lower body a great workout. To begin, simply stand in the water at your chest level. Keep your feet together at first with your arms at  your side. Then, jump by moving your legs to the outside while simultaneously raising your arms up over your head. Next, jump back to the starting position. Up to three sets of 8-12 repetitions will make for a great workout.

4. Knee Lifts

If you want to enhance your core and lower body, begin by standing in the water at waist height. Next, lift your right leg and bend you knee until your leg is even with the water level. Pause in that position for a few second. Then, extend your leg straight out. Hold this for a few moments. From there, slowly lower your leg down, but still keep it straight. You can then repeat this exercise with your left leg.

Safety is Important When Exercising in Your Fiberglass Pool

Believe it or not, you will sweat when working out in your backyard pool. Therefore, it is important to remain hydrated. Consume appropriate fluids before and after each workout session.  You should stop exercising if you feel dizzy or light-headed, have difficulties breathing, feel faint or nauseous, and/or have pain or any pressure in your upper body or chest.
