The Many Benefits of Pool Ownership
Relaxing and playing in a swimming pool is the ultimate backyard fun. It’s an investment not only in your backyard, but in your health and well-being.
When you spend time relaxing in and around the pool, you improve your mental health and reduce stress. It’s always a good thing when you can leave your electronic devices inside and enjoy family and friends, or some alone time.
Plus, the physical exercise you do in the pool stimulates the feel-good endorphins in your brain. The buoyancy of the water feels relaxing and helps you decompress from a long day or a busy week.
Exercise is great for athletes building cardio endurance and doing strength training, as well as someone who just wants a place to exercise without stressing joints and muscles. Not only can you swim laps in the pool, but you can incorporate leg lifts, arm lifts and treading water into your daily workout.
TIP: The average thirty minute pool workout burns approximately 300 calories. When you eliminate 3500 calories, you burn off a pound of body fat. A minimum of three to four times per week for your pool workout is recommended.
Imagine a world without electronic devices filled with the sound of birds chirping and the smell of fresh water. That world can be yours in a backyard pool. Swimming is great time to relax, bond and just spend quality family together.
A swimming pool is a great way to spend more time with friends and family. Your pool is a great place to hang out, not only for your friends, but your teenagers, too. It keeps friends and family close and gives everyone a reason to spend time together!
You know that swimming is good for your muscles and joints, but it’s also good for your cardiovascular system, too.
Swimming is a great workout, and it makes your heart and lungs strong.
What’s more, you don’t have to swim laps to reap the benefits. You can do water aerobics, tread water, and simply play for your children to enjoy the heart healthy benefits.
