A new decade is nearly upon us. Why not make 2020 the year to improve your overall health and wellbeing? Resolutions, especially fitness ones, are notoriously easy to break though–but not if you own a pool! Owning your own backyard pool makes keeping your health, fitness and self-care resolutions and goals so much easier. It’s not too late to start the pool buying process in time for the New Year.
1. Swimming Pools Make Workouts Fun
Working out indoors can get boring, and running in the hot sun can be uncomfortable. A pool offers cool, serene water where you can work out–and it won’t feel like a chore. If you’re tired of swimming laps, there are other fun options like playing water water volleyball or water basketball. You can even play pool games with your kids for exercise.
2. Avoid the New Year’s Gym Rush
The first few months of the New Year, gyms are always packed and you often have to wait on equipment–or have people in your personal space. A pool provides all the room and space you need for a nice work out.
3. Healthy Heart
Swimming is one of the best cardiovascular exercises. When you own a pool, your heart will thank you!
4. Added Convenience
It’s easy to skip the gym when you have to pack your gym bag, drive there after a long day of work, check in, change and get started in your work out and then drive home. When you have a pool right at your house, you can hop in as soon as you get home from work. On a lazy weekend day, it also makes it easy to step outside your door and get a swim in instead of driving somewhere. When you own a pool, you’ll find it’s so much more simple and easy to get work outs in.
5. Muscle Toning
Swimming works your arms, legs and core all at the same time, and the resistance against the water provides muscle toning.
The rhythm of swimming has a calming, relaxing effect. After a stressful day, you may find that swimming helps you unwind and be in a better mood. Plus, you’ll reap all the great benefits of reduced stress!
7. Great for Sore Joints
Many arthritis suffers, or people recovering from injuries, find exercises with impact or weight to be painful. With swimming pools, the buoyancy of the water is helpful and exercise can be done without impact. It also provides a wider range of motion. These benefits enable people with disabilities or injuries to be able to swim for exercise.
There are many activities you can do in a pool. If you tire of swimming laps and playing sports in the pool, there’s water jogging, water aerobics and even floating weights that can be used.
9. Get a Tan
An added benefit of swimming is that you can get a nice tan while you exercise!
10. Better Than a Public Pool
While there are very nice public pools, owning your pool provides privacy and serenity. After a nice swim, you can dry off and relax and enjoy the peaceful water while enjoying a refreshing drink from the convenience of your own home.
