7 Activities to Do in a Swim Spa That Don’t Involve Swimming

A swim spa is a fantastic way to combine the benefits of a swimming pool and a hot tub into one convenient package. And while many people use swim spas primarily for swimming, there are plenty of other activities you can enjoy in a swim spa that don’t involve swimming at all. 

What activities can I enjoy in my swim spa?

At Wellis New England, we are committed to providing high-quality swim spas in which you can enjoy a variety of enriching activities. Here are some of our favorites.

1. Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is one of the best non-swimming reasons to have a swim spa. It involves jetting water into the sculpted spa seats to help treat a range of medical conditions including arthritis, back pain, and sports injuries. The warm water in the spa can help soothe sore muscles and joints, reduce inflammation, and increase circulation. 

2. Relaxation

One of the best things about spas is the relaxing environment they offer. The jets in a swim spa provide a gentle massage that can help to relieve tension and promote relaxation. You can also add spa aromatherapy products to the water to enhance the relaxation experience.

3. Yoga and Stretching

Yoga is an excellent way to improve flexibility, strength, and balance. Doing yoga in a swim spa can provide additional benefits, as the warm water can help to loosen up tight muscles and joints. You can do yoga poses such as warrior and tree pose in as the water provides an extra level of support and balance.

Swim spas are also a prime place to stretch tight muscles. You may find that the warm water gives your limbs a greater range of motion than what you typically have on dry land. So use the opportunity to stretch those tight quads and hamstrings.

4. Meditation

Meditation is an excellent way to improve your overall wellness. Spas provide a peaceful, calming environment that can make meditation truly transformative. The sound of the water and the gentle massage from the jets can help quiet your mind as you tune into your body.

5. Entertainment

Swim spas can also be used for entertainment purposes. You can install a TV or sound system near the spa, so you can host a movie night or listen to music while relaxing in the warm water. You can also use it as a gathering spot for friends and family, making it a focal point for outdoor entertaining.

6. Resistance Training

Resistance training is an excellent way to build muscle and improve overall fitness. In swim spas, you can use resistance bands or other equipment to do strength training exercises. The resistance provided by the water makes every movement a workout, so you can get a full-body workout without having to go to the gym.

7. Stargazing

Stargazing is one of the most tranquil, awe-inspiring activities you can do outdoors. So why not enjoy it in your swim spa? In the evening, the soothing water is the perfect setting for gazing up at the stars. Whether you’re looking for a romantic date night or a peaceful solo retreat, stargazing in a spa is a magical experience.

What activities will you enjoy?

As these examples demonstrate, a swim spa is a versatile addition to your backyard that is sure to give you your money’s worth. From hydrotherapy to family entertainment, there are plenty of activities that can be enjoyed in a swim spa. And the wellness benefits they offer to your mind and body are abundant.
