Hot tubs have stood the test of time in terms of their many health benefits. From simple relaxation to major rehabilitation, spas have proven to be useful, enjoyable, and cost-effective treatment options. Just a few of the many health conditions that benefit from water therapy include:

  • Arthritis
  • Bone fractures
  • Sports injuries
  • General muscle soreness

In addition, your spa can help you get in shape and even lose weight. You can get a great workout in your hot tub, with the use of a few simple spa accessories. The best way to add resistance to your workout is with ankle weights and wet bells.

Consider these benefits of using a hot tub for working out:

You can personalize your fitness routine. Similar to a water aerobics class, your spa workout can be as vigorous or as gentle as you like. When exercising in the water, you don’t have to worry about wear and tear on your joints. However, if you want a cardiovascular workout, you can easily raise your heart rate with certain exercises.

You save money. Owning a hot tub is more cost-effective than hiring a trainer or buying a gym membership, because the life span of most hot tubs is approximately 20 years.

It’s convenient. You can work out (and then relax) at home any time you like. Forget having to drive to the gym or schedule sessions with a trainer.

Some common exercises that you can do in your hot tub include:

  • Jogging in place
  • Jumping jacks
  • Leg lifts
  • Arm curls
