TidalSpa Health benefits
TidalSpa swimming spas offer a number of health benefits including swimming for pleasure and exercise, walking, jogging, running, rowing, strength training, stretching and, of course, relaxation!
Swimming is one of the most inclusive forms of exercise because it can be enjoyed by people of all ages and all levels of fitness. It is considered to be the perfect exercise because it creates no stress on bones and joints. Also, the exercise of swimming causes a person to utilize all major muscle groups, which results in improved muscle strength and endurance, enhanced cardiovascular conditioning, and improvement in overall flexibility.
TidalFit pools are equipped with a commercially rated pumping system that produces a current of 400 gallons of water per minute. This pump system is equipped with adjustable swim jets and variable flow controls that allow users of all levels of fitness to swim at their own desired level of intensity. Dual and quad adjustable swim jets are available for advanced swimmers or for those who wish to have a greater challenge.
Regular physical activity reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke and strengthens the heart, not to mention relieving stress. In addition, regular exercise improves blood circulation and keeps joints flexible.
Walking, Jogging and Running
The belt attachment by SUPERSWIM adds an additional dimension to the TidalFit exercise options. The buoyancy of water provides a virtually weightless environment, allowing the user to walk with minimal stress on joints and bones. Walking against the resistance of water also increases the rate at which calories are burned and muscles are strengthened.
Walking is a gentle, low-impact exercise that can ease you into a higher level of fitness and health. Walking is one of your body’s most natural forms of exercise. It’s safe, simple, doesn’t require practice, and the health benefits are many. Walking lowers low-density (LDL) cholesterol (bad cholesterol) and raises the high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (good cholesterol). A regular walking routine can help manage your weight, improve your mood and help you stay fit.
Smooth, low-impact, and non-load bearing, the exercise of rowing spreads the intensity of exercise evenly over the body’s three major muscle groups: the torso, legs, and arms. This even distribution of exercise provides for a toning effect for all of the muscles, as opposed to working for only an isolated group.
Vigorous rowing will improve aerobic capacity, develop muscular strength and endurance, improve flexibility and expend lots of calories, which aids in weight loss. The rowing action provides a thorough workout for muscles in your arms, chest, shoulders, abs and upper back. This exercise is low-impact and easy on the knees and ankles and high calorie burner because it uses so many muscle groups. Rowing is also great for joint health since the joints move through a wide range of motion and is a superb aerobic and cardiovascular workout.
Resistance cords are used in the TidalFit pool to accomplish curls, tricep extensions, chest presses, shoulder pulls, and back pulls. These upper body exercises are specifically designed to build strength and core stability of the lumbar. The cords vary in size to accommodate beginning and advanced training.
These lightweight and portable cords increase muscle tone, strength and flexibility. Strength training increases the body’s metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories throughout the day. Consistent strength training with the TidalFit can increase bone density and stronger, more resilient muscles can improve balance, flexibility, mobility and stability.
The three main goals that a person should be working to achieve when exercising are muscle strengthening, cardiovascular conditioning, and overall flexibility. Stretching the muscles before and after a workout is key to alleviating the possibility of injuries and sore muscles from an extensive workout. The sidebars in the TidalFit pool make stretching easy and convenient.
Most aerobic and strength training programs inherently cause your muscles to contract and flex. That’s why regular stretching is a powerful part of any exercise program. Stretching improves the range of motion of your joints. Good range of motion keeps you in better balance. Stretching also improves circulation by increasing the blood flow to your muscles and can speed up recovery after muscle injuries. Relieve stress since stretching relaxes the tense muscles that often accompany stress.
The benefits of relaxation are more than simply a refreshed mind and rejuvenated spirit. Did you know that there are significant health benefits associated with relaxation? Reducing stress, reducing or eliminating insomnia, and improving your reaction to stress and depression can decrease your chances of developing certain health conditions, such as heart disease and cancer.
Hydrotherapy is most easily defined as the therapeutic use of water. It has been used for centuries, and today is relied on as an aid in treating muscular pain, joint injuries and arthritis. The hydrotherapy elements of heat, buoyancy, and massage work together to create an experience that is both relaxing and healing for one’s body and mind.
