How Installing A Swim Spa Can Change Your Life

Whether you are training for an IRONMAN triathlon or you just want to add a low-impact aerobic exercise to your routine, swimming is an excellent choice — and one that is gaining popularity across the country.

In fact, the Aerobics Center Longitudinal Study, which followed more than 40,000 men between 1970 and 2003 found swimmers had an overall mortality rate that was around 50 percent lower than men who were runners, walkers or sedentary.

But since most people don’t own lap pools and joining a gym with a pool is a major hassle, swimming typically is not a convenient form of exercise — unless you consider the benefits of installing a Swim Spa.

Swim Spa Benefits

Swim Spas have the ability to be installed in virtually any environment. From above or below ground in your backyard to your basement or 4-season room, you can enjoy all the health benefits of a swimming pool — plus much more — anywhere in your home. Some of the advantages include:

Endurance & strength training 

Swim spas not only offer aerobic fitness through swimming, but they can also include exercise equipment that allows for resistance and strength training without harsh impact on joints.


Swim spas typically include seats and aquatic therapy jets on one side of the spa to help ease pain and tension. When you’re not swimming, you can sit back and relax as the soothing jets massage away muscle fatigue.

Family friendly

While hot tubs are typically adult-only, swim spas are versatile enough to server a variety of purposes. Aside from exercise, they are deep enough to teach your children how to swim in a controlled environment or to sit back and relax with family or friends.

With depths of up to 60 inches and lengths reaching up to 19 feet depending on the Master Spas model, swim spas offer diverse options ranging from extreme training to compact efficiency. Additionally, there are a variety of features that vary between swim spa brands and styles.

Master Spas Michel Phelps Signature Swim Spas

Michael Phelps Signature Swim SpaThe Michael Phelps line of Swim Spas by Master Spas were designed with input from the 23-time gold medalist and his coach, Bob Bowman. These swim spas are unique not only in their efficiency, depth and quality, but particularly stand out in their Wave Propulsion Technology.

While most swim spas use jets to generate their current, the Michael Phelps line utilizes an exclusive propeller design that offers a one-of-a-kind swimming experience. This propulsion system creates a smoother, more natural current that feels almost like a river.

The resistance and temperature is also fully customizable through the SwimNumber System, so you can select the flow and comfort level that is right for each individual. Depending on your training level, you can opt for the standard Wave Propulsion system or upgrade to the Wave XP Propulsion or Wave XP Propulsion Pro for more powerful currents.

All Michael Phelps Swim Spas also come standard with the H2Xercise System, a series of aquatic weights, resistance bands and other equipment that allow you to incorporate strength training into your workout.

With one side dedicated to therapy jets and options like LED lighting, a high-end Fusion sound system, touch-screen controls, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, and more, the Michael Phelps line of swim spas is the pinnacle of luxury swim spa systems.

Master Spas H2X Series Swim Spas

When it comes to jetted swim spas, most brands are fairly indistinguishable. However, the Master Spas H2X Series stands head and shoulders above the competition due to a unique Velocity Injector Plate technology, which creates jets that are around 40 percent stronger than other similar swim spas.

Similar to the Michael Phelps line, the H2X series comes equipped with a large, flat floor that is perfect for anything from endurance training to strength training. The H2X is compatible with the H2Xercise fitness system, so you can peruse the free H2Xercise Aquatic Workout book to find a variety of full-body exercise routines.

The spa is also equipped with hydrotherapy jets, and available Fusion sound, touch-screen controls, various color options, wireless connectivity and more. And like all Master Spas products, the H2X line of swim spas are built to exceed California’s strict energy regulations, resulting in an incredibly efficient spa that won’t kill your monthly power bill.

Overall, the H2X series offers many of the incredible benefits of the Michael Phelps line of swim spas but in a more traditional jetted design.
