03/17/2009 – Cal Spas Hot Tub Alternate to Pool Construction
Cal Spas Adds F1257 Hot Tub to Ultimate Fitness Lineup as More Consumers Choose Big Spas over Pools to Save
Pomona, Calif., March 18, 2009— Cal Spas introduced today the new F1257 Ultimate Fitness hot tub, a fitness spa designed to serve both as an all-in-one aquatic home gym and as a hydrotherapy spa. Cal Spas fitness hot tubs have grown in popularity over the past year, a fact which the company attributes to a shift in the pool building market.
“Homeowners are increasingly turning to fitness spas as an alternate to building a pool, particularly when budget is a deciding factor,” said Casey Loyd, Cal Spas President. “Cal Spas Fitness hot tubs are fully equipped to provide an aquatic gym experience and they offer a spacious area for treadmill swimming, lounging and entertaining.”
For homeowners who want a place to splash around without the cost and construction involved in building a pool, a larger fitness spa or swim spa is ideal. Often homeowners are unaware of the availability of larger fitness spas; once they learn about the benefits and features, many find that a fitness spa has the characteristics that they wanted in a pool and more. Some of these benefits include:-Takes up less outdoor real estate than a traditional pool

Fitness spas can be used for low impact rehabilitation exercises such as kicking while holding onto the spa’s grab bar, treadmill swimming and walking in place. Water buoyancy relieves the effects of gravity on joints and muscles, making it easier to exercise. What’s more because the fitness spa is heated, those impacted by Arthritis can experience the benefits of a warm water soak and massage in the jetted hydrotherapy spa seats to help relieve pain. Additionally, warm water temporarily relieves stiffness and aches, increasing flexibility. The combination of warm water and more frequent exercise can also aid the sleep process for a more restful night’s sleep.
