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.
Exercise in the pool is great for everyone. Whether you’re an athlete building cardio endurance and doing strength training, or you need a place to exercise without stressing your joints and muscles, the pool is the best place for heart-healthy exercise. 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.
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!
