Ultimate indoor exercise

A surprising and very creative component to the HydroWorx Swim Spa is the Rehab pool. It is a stainless steel frame that is durable and is integrated into the pool floor. The treadmill allows for replication of land-based treadmill walking all without the pressure on your joints. Since your body is bouyant in the water, weight bearing is decreased making water treadmill walking the modernized version of aquatic exercise. Not only is the Swim Spa able to promote a pain-free fitness routine to the average consumer, but can also help those with rehabilitative needs. HydroWorx technology has been able to help those with chronic pain and arthritis, back and spine conditions, neurological and orthopedic conditions. Among its key features are a powered variable speed underwater treadmill, adjustable water depth and resistance jets that are known to rehabilitate and condition thousands of athletes and patients throughout the world.

For anyone who is overweight and considering exercise as a part of their comprehensive weight-loss program, I would highly recommend Aquatic theraphy. Subjects also lost more body fat percent using the HydroWorx pool than with the land treadmill. Four out of five subjects participating in the study preferred exercising in the HydroWorx pool over land-based treadmill running. HydroWorx aquatic exercise is effective at burning calories, while at the same time is more comfortable to perform - people just like it better than conventional exercise on a land treadmill.

I'm into hydrotherapy. It has helped me a lot during my recovery. Winter time I had a Steam Shower installed. Then a Infrared Sauna for a little weight loss. The final thing to complete my hydrotherapy is a Swim Spa. That will be the last puzzle piece for my spinal injury recovery.
