The Life-Changing Benefits of Swim Spas


Thinking of a whole new way to relax while staying fit and happy? Is it time to maximize all that space in your backyard? Maybe you’re thinking about an exciting addition to your backyard for your friends and family to enjoy. Sounds like it’s time to discover the power of swim spas! When it comes to leisure and enjoyment in your backyard, you deserve nothing but the best.

Every one of our swim spa solutions is a comfortable place to exercise, relax or play. No matter your reasons for putting up a swim spa, our professionals at Sun Valley Pools & Spas will help you choose the best design for your taste and budget.

Benefits of Swim Spas

Swim Spas Are Good for Exercise

A swim spa is essentially a gym within your house. You can exercise at your own convenience without the hassle of going to a communal gym. From cardio to aerobics, the range of workouts you can do in your swim spa is limitless. Once you’ve got the spa installed, there’s no need for additional equipment like you would need for other workouts.

Your entire body has a lot of room to move freely in a swim spa. You can now perform special workout regimes you couldn’t normally do because of pain or discomfort. The water also adds some resistance to your movement, thus improving the effectiveness of your workout.

Whether you’re looking to lose weight or stay in shape, working out in your swim spa will keep you fit and healthy.

Beneficial in Therapy (Aquatic Therapy)

Aquatic therapy, also known as hydrotherapy, is a water-based form of fitness treatment. People who have suffered physical injuries can benefit greatly from a swim spa. Using a variety of temperatures, hydromassage, and buoyancy, hydrotherapy helps these individuals recover as quickly as possible and get back to normal life.

Aquatic therapy can be done in spas to:

  • Improve balance and mobility
  • Ease muscle tension
  • Relieve muscle and joint pain

A swim spa is also good for the heart; water exercises help improve your blood circulation. Since hydrotherapy involves some physical exercises, it additionally promotes the production of endorphins which relieve pain and boost happiness.

It is recommended that you talk to a medical professional before trying out aquatic therapy to find out if it’s right for you.

An Improvement to Your Backyard Space

Whether you’re looking to step up the functionality of your backyard or add some beauty to it, a swim spa might be just what you need. Both above-ground and in-ground spas add an incredible aesthetic while providing value.

And who knows? Maybe installing that swim spa might finally motivate you to work on the rest of the backyard! Getting the landscaping done or even adding those exterior lighting fixtures can complement the swim spa while keeping your backyard beautiful.


A swim spa is a perfect way to wind down after a long day, an intense exercise session or just to spend some personal self-care time. Forget about relaxing at the local pool for a limited time – your swim spa is available for you day and night all through the year!

You can either swim or sit in your spa as you relax your tense muscles and re-energize.

Our spas are also family-friendly, meaning that you can have your loved ones, children or friends over for some fun.

Flexibility and Mobility

Unlike a swimming pool, a swim spa isn’t a permanent installation. You get to choose where your spa is placed. Should you want to move, you can easily take your swim spa with you.

You’ve got full control of your backyard and the spa as well.

Because of their flexibility, installing swim spas is an easy affair that takes only a few hours. This means you get to enjoy your cool new swim spa without the months-long process of installing a full-sized swimming pool.

You also get to save some money since it requires less manpower and significantly fewer installation costs.

Health and Wellness Benefits

Even when you have an able body or feel motivated most of the time, keeping up with a regular fitness routine is challenging. In case you are struggling with mobility issues, obesity, advanced aging, or depression, aquatic fitness is the way to go.

A regular commitment to a swim spa can:

  • Improve your sleep
  • Reduce stress
  • Soothe your joints
  • Ease your muscle tension
  • Lower your blood pressure.
  • Speed up your recovery from an injury.

Reduced Stress

A swim spa is not just great for the body, it is for the mind too. It’s just you and the water without the distractions you’d face in a public place.

You’re more likely to pay more attention to yourself without other people distracting you.

Spend More Time with Loved Ones

Owning a swim spa allows you to enjoy quality time with family and friends, splashing around with them freely.

You also get to enjoy practicing aquatic fitness as a couple or with friends, encouraging one another, and taking the chance to connect.

A swim spa is an excellent opportunity to get out of the house, far away from all the screens and electronic devices, and spend some quality time together.
