How to achieve Aquatic Fitness, in most any type of pool?

 Aquatic Fitness and Exercise programs are becoming more and more popular. There are products for every age and budget. Products, such as Aquatic Fitness Trainers, are available, to help you swim endlessly in place, using a residential pool model or a travel model to take to a health club facility.  The basic choices include a group of products that allow you to swim endlessly in place, even in a small pool or swim-spa.   Increased physical activity can place extra demands on the sanitizing system and should be considered, when choosing a sanitizer. If problems arise, refer to the Pool Problems Page, as a source of problem-solving information, broken down into various categories.  Scroll down the page and click on the linked keywords, catch phrases or images, in the archived answers below, to access additional information, on that topic or product.

Swimming In A Swim-Spa?

I understand that Swim-Spas allow you to swim continuously, in what amounts to oversized spa.  Do they really provide the same kind of work out?  Thank you, for taking the time to answer questions.

Joel S., Solavita, FL 8/11/2017

No they don't provide exactly the same type of work out.  You can't start the swim with a dive or push off the walls, but you can go
through the mechanics of swimming, without interruption or having to turn around.  A typical swim-spa is about 15-feet long, so you either swim into a current generated by a pump or use an Aquatic Fitness Trainer to tether yourself to the side of the swim-spa.  Either way, you can enjoy the health benefits of swimming.  An Arctic Spas Swim-Spa, with its rugged harsh climate design and better insulation, also allows you to enjoy it year round, as a soothing, tension relieving spa.  In the summer, you can turn off the heat and enjoy it as a mini-pool.  Great for smaller spaces.  I hope that this information will be helpful.

Swimming Endlessly In Place?

I have heard about pools that allow you to swim in place, without having to turn around. How can this be done? I have a fiberglass pool, so retro-fitting is not something I want to do. Thanks for the help.

Erica H., Chapel Hill, NC 8/22/2015

Swim endlessly in place - inground with ladder mount.
No retro-fitting required! You can either add equipment that will create a current to swim into. By swimming into this adjustable current, you end up swimming in place. It is simply placed on the coping and over the side of the pool. While it works well, it may not fit into every budget. The other way is to tether yourself to something outside of the pool. On the other hand, the Super Aquatic Trainer is affordable and allows you to swim or walk away from the starting point, but holds you back and in place. It consists of a belt, tethered to a long flexible long. The harder you swim, the more resistance it provides. Either way you can swim endlessly, even in a smaller pool.  I hope that this will provide an endless amount of fun.

Aquatic Training In Above Ground Pool?

I have a 15' round above ground pool and would like to do some aquatic fitness and exercise. Is there some that you would suggest for my size pool.

Bob N., Commack, NY 3/3/2011
Swim endlessly in place - above ground pool.

There is something that will work, in most any pool. The Super Aquatic Trainer, utilizes a belt and a long pole, and allows you to swim or walk,
endlessly in place. There are several inground models and one designed for above ground pools. It can provide the same health benefits as the most expensive types of pools and equipment. Use it properly and you'll see the results, without the major expenditure. I think it is just what you're looking for. This product is professional grade and is used by swim pros.  Enjoy the workout!

Aquatic Exercise Options?

I would like to do some exercising in my pool, other than swimming.  The pool is just outside our screen in patio and I would like to keep a eye on the baby, while he naps.  Any good suggestions.  Thank you,

Karen H, Brunswick, GA, 7/13/2018

An Aquatic Fitness Trainer will enable you to get a varied workout, and allow you to maintain visual contact, remaining in essentially the same place.  The best part is that the workout is stress-free and low impact.  Next to swimming laps, it is about the best exercising you can do in a pool, that is effective and affordable.  I hope that this information will help you make the best choice.

Sincerely.  Alan Schuster, 7/13/2018

Sanitizer Choice?

We are having a pool built in an enclosed space. It is our plan to use this, year round, for aerobic and physical exercise, utilizing something that will permit swimming in place. It will be used by two people, for about one hour daily. How can you sanitize the water, both to assure proper sanitizing and, yet, minimize the chemical sensations? I would rather not use chlorine. Thanks for your time and assistance.

Tamara B., Briarcliff Manor, NY, 7/23/2010

Planning ahead is a smart thing to do. The physical exercise, from swimming in place or aquatic exercising, does place more demand on the sanitizer,Saltron Reliant salt chlorine generator, for pools. than just lounging in the water. However, this can be overcome, with the right system. I would choose, one of several methods. You can use an ozone generator and a mineral sanitizer. An Ozone Generator will provide the necessary oxidation of bather wastes and organic byproducts. A Mineral Sanitizer will provide persist backup sanitation, by the slow release of sanitizing ions.  This will enable you to maintain quality water, while maintaining a chlorine or bromine level at 1/2 of the normal amount. A salt chlorine generator is another good option.  It allows you to dial the chlorine production up or down, depending on the demand and the seasons.  Is the better way to do chlorine, in any type of pool. I hope that this information helps to keep you in the swim.

Increasing The Lap Length?

I have a relatively small inground pool and it is great for cooling off, but not for swimming laps. Can you tell me about devices that facilitate lap swimming. Sincerely.

Aaron T, 12/15/2007

Endlessly swimming in place, across the width of the pool.
You can't stretch the pool, but you can add something that will allow to swim straight ahead, withouta lap ending turn.
One rather expensive method, involves a water flow generating piece of equipment that is set on the pool's edge. It creates and adjustably strong current that allows you to swim in place. The other choice, an Aquatic Fitness Trainer, involves a belt, around the waist, that is attached to the pool deck and is modestly priced. You get held back, by the strapping, and can swim without interruption or turns, even across the width of the pool, as shown in the image on the right. A salt chlorine generator is an excellent way to sanitize the pool and allows you the ability to dial up the chlorine output, during periods of increased physical activity. I hope that this will help you locate the right product.
