Imperial Pools contractors in Champaign & Decatur, IL explain swim spasĀ 

Swimming is a great way to get in shape, but a swim spa amps up the enjoyment of the swimming pool AND helps you get in a better workout. Is a swim spa right for you? The reasons you may want a swim spa vary, but they are healthful and relaxing.

Swimming in a swim spa helps you get more out of your workout and really heightens the cardio and lung capacity workout you will get. In a swim spa you are toning your muscles even more, burning calories and having fun. What more could you ask for?

Is a swim spa right for you?

How can you know whether a swim spa is right for your family or if you’d be better served with a full size pool? Here are some of the reasons to opt for a pool in specific or a swim spa in general.

What’s your budget? A swim spa may cost you less. That is a major factor for many potential pool owners.

  • A pool in general is a bonus because you won’t have to pack up the car and the kids and head to the beach and fight the crowds
  • If you don’t have a lot of yard space to devote to a pool or don’t want to give up all the yard space, a swim spa might be ideal
  • When you have a swim spa, the benefit is that you can add jets that will help you to swim upstream against them to get in an even better workout.
  • A swim spa is just as much fun for friends and family as is a full sized pool

Talk with us to see which option — swim spa or traditional pool — is best for your family. A swim spa is smaller and more self contained and could cost in the $20,000 range where a full sized pool may start out with a price tag of about $40,000.
