Swim spas have become increasingly popular in recent years as an alternative to traditional swimming pools. These compact pools offer a range of benefits that make them a great choice for people who want to swim, exercise, and relax in the comfort of their own backyard. A swim spa provides the perfect combination of a pool and hot tub, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of both in one convenient unit.

Whether you’re looking to exercise, swim laps, or soothe sore muscles and joints, a swim spa offers a versatile solution that can be used year-round. They are also ideal for smaller yards or for those who want a low-maintenance option. Additionally, because they are smaller than traditional swimming pools, swim spas are generally more energy-efficient, making them a cost-effective option over time.

How to Use a Swim Spa for Exercise

While swim spas are used for a number of different purposes, exercise is a common reason. Swim spas are a great way to get a full-body workout; they allow you to swim against a current without having to turn around. This creates resistance and can help you build strength, endurance, and cardiovascular fitness.

Warm Up

Warming up before exercise is essential to prepare your body for physical activity and prevent injury. It increases your heart rate, loosens up your muscles and joints, and improves blood flow to your working muscles. Walking or jogging in the swim spa, or doing some gentle stretching exercises, are great ways to warm up before starting your swim spa exercise routine. It’s important to take a few minutes to properly warm up before starting any intense physical activity, including swimming or using a swim spa.


One of the main features that make swim spas excellent workout tools is the water resistance current that they provide. Swimming against the current in a swim spa is a great way to get a full-body workout. By adjusting the speed of the current, you can tailor the intensity of your workout to your fitness level and gradually increase it as you become more comfortable.

Swimming laps against the current will help you improve your stroke technique, breathing, and endurance. It’s important to focus on proper form and technique to get the most out of your workout and prevent injury.

Use Resistance Bands

Resistance bands are a great addition to your swim spa workout routine, as they provide an extra challenge and help you build strength and tone your muscles.

To use resistance bands in your swim spa, you can attach them to the sides of the spa and use them for exercises such as chest presses, bicep curls, and leg extensions. You can also use the resistance bands for exercises like squats, lunges, and lateral raises to work different muscle groups.

Another great exercise you can do in a swim spa is rowing. Attach a rowing machine or rowing kit to your swim spa to get a full-body workout that focuses on your back, shoulders, arms, and core.

To do rowing exercises in your swim spa, sit on the seat of the rowing machine or rowing kit and attach the resistance bands to the front of the swim spa. Then, pull the handle towards your chest while pushing back with your legs, similar to rowing on a traditional rowing machine.

Relaxing in Your Swim Spa

Swim spas aren’t just for exercise — they can also provide relaxation and socialization. Many swim spas feature hot tub-like jetted seats that are designed to massage and help relax your body. So, even if you aren’t in the mood for a workout, you can still enjoy the benefits of your swim spa by simply relaxing in it.

Since the water temperature is adjustable, consider setting your swim spa temperature higher to aid in soothing muscles and promoting stress relief. Swim spas make a fantastic hang-out spot as well, especially for those with jetted seats. Invite your friends and family over to enjoy a relaxing and fun time in the comfort of your own backyard.
