Top four benefits of crossing-training in a swim spa

1. The water’s buoyancy reduces impact, and wear and tear on your joints.

2. You can use the swim spa’s currents or jets for increased turbulence, helping to improve core stability and balance.

3. The temperature and pressure of the water create improved circulation to help with faster recovery rates and reduced muscle soreness.

4. The other benefit of cross-training in a swim spa is that it provides a change to your normal exercise programme, so you don’t get bored!

You can read more about cross-training in swim spas on Dr. Rick’s website.

Dr. Rick McAvoy is a physical therapist based in the United States who has specialised in aquatic physical therapy, fitness and sports performance for more than 25 years. Spa World is pleased to work alongside Dr. Rick helping to get the word out about the health benefits of swim spas.
