How Does Exercise Improve Your Overall Health?

When it comes to exercising your body and living a healthy lifestyle it is important to understand how it is affecting our bodies. When we start doing cardio and building muscle strength we immediately feel the difference. Here are some of the things that happen to your body when you start your daily regimen.

  • Improve oxygen flow to the brain
  • Activates your brain
  • Heart rate and blood pressure lowers
  • Decrease risk of disease
  • Gain more energy

After one day your brain triggers a flight or fight response. “Your blood flow to your brain increases, making you more alert, more aware and more awake,” Professor Newton says. Furthermore, “That lovely hormone epinephrine is released, which makes you more motivated, it blocks pain and makes you smarter immediately.” He also talks about your body going into repair mode because it is not used to working those muscles.

The first day you work out, you want to listen to your body and not push yourself. The reason is that you do not want to be discouraged and feel you can’t do it when you can. After the first day, your body will build tolerance so each session you can push a little harder.

After one week your cells start to rejuvenate and you feel more energy. Taking care of your cells is like drinking the fountain of youth! The more you stay in a constant routine the more you will completely transform your overall health.

After one month you will notice physical changes in your muscles. Your metabolism will start to pick up and as you sleep you will burn more energy. Life will become easier because you are stronger, therefore, you can do more for yourself. This is what we call superhero training.

 

Swim the endless current at advanced levels using the Jet System II. When your cardio work out is complete, you can keep going using our complete aquatic workout. Feel the jets on your back, legs, and feet as you do bicep building exercises. When your workout is complete, massage your muscles using the precisely positioned water jets in our captain seats.

After six months you will have so much self-confidence because you will ultimately feel and see the difference. Believe it or not, when you have the self-discipline you create self-love, which will make your heart literally grow bigger. When you work out for at least half a year, you reduce the risk of heart attack. Your resting heart rate will be lowered, and your heart will be able to pump your blood more strongly.

After one year your bone density will increase which means your risk of fracture is minimum! Your self-esteem will rise while anxiety disappears. Oh, and say hello to good mental health. Woo-hoo!

Exercising is the best type of habit to get into. Replace the bad ones with good ones! It all starts with you and a Cal Spas Fitness Swim Spa!

F1222- Our more shallow swim spa is Ideal for the beginner level of fitness. With one swim spa river jet, you are able to build strength by swimming, walking or jogging in place. For a complete aquatic work out, you can set up the fitness handle bar and anchors for bicep building exercises.

 

 

Cal Spas Hot Tub Yoga Routine

When you first step into your Cal Spa Hot Tub you will instantly feel the warmth on your toes and a warm sensation run through your body. When you finally sit in the spa you have two choices: sit and relax or move around a little bit. When you move around, finding a nice yoga routine is worth the effort. Here is a yoga routine made just for the Cal Spas Family!

First, we shall begin with a meditation that will last between 5-10 minutes (whatever you feel most comfortable with) Close your eyes and any thoughts that come through your head, let them come, and let them go. If you have trouble focusing you can count from 100-1 and let your thoughts settle.

Extra Chakra Meditation Practice: Once you feel that your mind has relaxed and thoughts have slowed down, imagine a ball of light on top of your head, and then imagine the ball slowly falling behind your neck, down to your back and coming up from underneath you, to in front of you, working its way in front of your stomach, to your chest, to your heart, to your throat, to your third eye, and back to your crown chakra. Focus on your chakra points lighting up as the ball of light circulates around you.

Once you have your mind settled and relaxed it is time to begin. Considering we are in a hot tub full of water it is best to do Vinyasa Yoga because you want to flow into each yoga position and keep your breath synchronized with each pose. Since you are in a spa, you may have to be creative with the way you are positioning yourself, and being aware of the seating of the spa. Feel free to adjust accordingly. This is your yoga practice; it is about you and what you can do. Never push yourself too hard, and listen to your body and what it wants. You can move as fast as you want or as slow. Our goal is to kindly stretch muscles, release toxins, and decompress your mind, body, and spirit.

Note: Each pose should be approximately 3 minutes long maximum. This is your practice, listen to your body and decide how long you should hold each pose and how long you want to breathe it out. It is completely up to you. This is a guideline to a yoga routine.

Please consult a physician before practice and stay hydrated!

Let’s flow like water!

 

Dandasana
Stretches: Thorax and Shoulder
Find a place in the spa where you can sit down and straighten your legs. Keep your back straight – your head aligned with your shoulders and hips. Flex both your feet and keep arms straight and palms flat on a surface. Inhale and lengthen your spine. Take 5 deep breaths with legs straight. While you are in this pose, feel free to stretch your ankles, move your toes, and release the energy in your feet. If you want to advance this stretch, lean forward and double your breaths.

 

 

 

 

Baddha Konasana
Stretches: Thigh, Knee, Inguinal Region
With your legs straight in front of you, now you want to exhale, bend your knees, and pull your heels toward your pelvis, then drop your knees out to the sides and bring your feet together so the bottom of your feet is touching each other. If this stretch is painful, you can adjust by added a spa booster seat under you (find it at quickspaparts.com #ACC01400483) to raise your hips so your knees can open more.v

Tadasana
Stretches: Thigh, Knee, Ankle
Starting from a standing position in the middle of your spa, stand with hip-width apart. Spread your fingers and your toes and distribute your weight evenly. As you inhale squeeze your muscles together and lift your and torso muscles up. When you exhale, release all your muscles and let your shoulders drop and extend your fingers and toes.

Utkatasana
Stretches: Vertebral column, Thigh, Calf, Ankle

From standing position, keep your knees together and slightly bend. Sink your weight back into the heels. Lengthen your tailbone and tilt your pelvis down and back. Keep your spine long and don’t let your stomach hang out. Left your chest and draw your shoulder blades towards the middle of the back. Push palms together and reach for the moon!

Malasana Squat
Stretches: 
Inguinal region, Ankle, Back torso
To take this one step further, you can flow into a squat onto one of the bench seats of the spa by placing your feet flat on the bench seat, extend lower back and draw shoulder blades toward one another. Press your elbows into knees to open the hips. Keep your hands in prayer and your chest open. Don’t forget to smile.

Virabhadrasana I
Stretches: Thorax, Lung, Navel, Thigh, Inguinal region, Calf, Ankle, Neck, Shoulder
Step your right foot forward and bend the knee into your right hand. Your left leg will be straight with your foot facing out. Bring both hands up, opening your chest and reach for the stars! Check your alignment on your hips and keep them facing forward. After taking a few breaths, switch sides.

Virabhadrasana II
Thorax, Lung, Inguinal region, Ankle, Shoulder, Leg
To transition into Warrior 2 you want to start with your right foot out at a 90-degree angle in front of you. Open your hips to the left side along with aligning your torso to the left. Reach out your right arm toward the front of the mat and your left arm toward the back of the mat with palms facing down. Keep both arms parallel to the floor and keep shoulders back. As you breathe in straighten your front leg and as you breathe out bend it back to 90-degree angle. As you bend your knee imagine reaching for something you want and achieving your goals. Repeat switching sides.

 

This is a great routine for Hot Tub Yoga the Cal Spas way!

Free your mind and your spirit will follow!

5 Reasons Cal Spas Hot Tubs Help You Sleep at Night

Our goal is not for you to stop counting sheep, but if the shoe fits, let’s count it in. Cal Spas takes pride in giving you the best hydrotherapy experience possible. One of the perks of hydrotherapy is the way you feel when you go to bed and most importantly when you wake up.

1. Relieve Fatigue The moment you wake up in the morning after being in the hot tub the previous night, your first thoughts will be, “wow I feel great!” All it takes is 10-15 min in a Cal Spa Hot Tub before you go to bed to wake up feeling well rested and energized for the day.

 

 

2. Massage your Muscles After a long stressful day; most people feel really tense when they go home and need to find a remedy to distress themselves… That’s where hydrotherapy comes into play. I guarantee that after a night-time session in a Cal Spa hot tub when coming home from a long day, you will feel a tremendous difference, in how you feel and what you can do.

 

 

3. Mentally Relax Some nights are long, some are sleepless, and some you wake up feeling like you never even slept. Well, we can change that. Taking a nighttime soak session will change all of that. Sit back and close your eyes, take a deep breath and dive in as the jets move the water around you. When you gaze at nature all around you and breathe in the fresh air while immersing yourself in a tub full of luxury, you are feeding your soul.

 

 

4. Get rid of Anxiety Anxiety comes and goes, and for some, it is always there. If you know what anxiety is, then you know that relief is not an easy solution. On the other hand, if you own a Cal Spas Hot Tub, relief comes easier than you may think. Escape your fears and troubles in a warm spa that hugs you with a blanket of jets.

 

 

5. Improve Well Being Ten minutes of immersion in whirlpools produced increases in pulse and finger temperature with increased feelings of well-being and decreased state anxiety.[1] When it comes to your well-being, we are talking about the overall happiness in your life. When you can meet the goal to relieve stress, you feel good, feel awake and ready to conquer than Cal Spas can also sleep at night! Because we know we are giving you the best hydrotherapy session in the industry.
