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.

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.

Swim Spas in Fall

Leaves are changing colors, the temperature dips down to brisk weather, and the swimming pool may be closed for the season. But, did you know you can enjoy a swim spa all year round? Just like a portable hot tub, swim spas emit heated spa water for therapy and swim resistance. The warmth of the spa water is perfect to enjoy during the cooler Fall months. Cal-Spas-Pro-Trainer-Hero-tablet

Swim spas are perfect any time of year, turn down the heat in summer and turn up the heat in winter – and find a happy medium in between. Cal Spas Swim Spas come in an array of sizes to appeal to any family size. Use a Cal Spas Swim-Pro Swim & Fitness Spa for health optimization and leisure.

Why Swim Spas

Swim Pro Swim & Fitness Spas, by Cal Spas, are an excellent solution for an at home aquatic exercise, and make the perfect alternative to any in-ground swimming pool. Rather than choosing between a pool and a hot tub, gain the benefits of both.

Our Swim Spas are designed to be enjoyed by the entire family —whether swimming, relaxing, or enjoying playtime. Unique features, such as sound systems and hydro-streamers, can create a wonderful ambiance in any yard.

For individuals suffering from joint issues or arthritis, a Swim Spa can provide a low impact workout, to keep the body active without the unnecessary stress. Adjustable jets allow swimmers to control the speed, allowing for faster-paced swims and slower-paced swims to work on form.

Additional Cal Flex spa equipment allows you to build muscle mass and increase your endurance. This equipment is bungee and resistance training, providing a solid workout with a much lower impact than traditional weight training regimens.

Each spa also includes dedicated therapy jets which deliver hydrotherapy to key point areas. Cal Spas leads the way in giving users an unrivaled comfort, relaxation, and aquatic massage experience.

Practice Self-care with Our Hot Tubs

If you keep up with blog content on the Internet, then you have probably read the term “self-care” somewhere, at some point. “Self-care” is, essentially, a term used to describe how you take care of yourself. It’s about taking the time to check in with you, and asking yourself what do I need in this moment?

As self-care has become a prominent topic both on and offline, more and more lists of hobbies and activities, of recommendations and prescriptions, have surfaced. Cal Spas is here to add our recommendation to your list of self-care habits—dip into warm water.

Warm water immersion is nothing new. It’s been around for ages, and for good reason: warm water tends to relieve many different types of pain.

According to the Arthritis Foundation’s website, warm water immersion “reduces the force of gravity that’s compressing the joint, offers 360-degree support for sore limbs, can decrease swelling and inflammation and increase circulation.”

The American Psychological Association (APA) estimates that millions of people suffer from chronic stress, meaning that millions of people have muscles in a constant tense state. Their website states that this chronic stress causes issues in multiple systems in the body, such as your respiratory, cardiovascular, and nervous systems.

A Cal Spas hot tub can help you take care of you. Immersing yourself in the warm waters of one of our hot tubs can help combat pain in joints, as well as relieve tension in muscles. If you could combat stress and better your health, why wouldn’t you?

Have You Heard About Our Adjustable Therapy System™?

Here at Cal Spas, we understand that relaxation is one of your top priorities when it comes to buying a hot tub. That’s why Cal Spas offers our exclusive Adjustable Therapy System™ (ATS). The ATS has 7 massage patterns to choose from, allowing you to target specific problem areas for the ultimate relaxation therapy.

Each ATS comes with a dedicated control panel that is installed at arm’s length to choose a massage pattern directly from the ATS seat. The warm spa water and powerful jets will soothe muscle aches and joint pain.

The ATS has its own dedicated pump, which allows you to operate the ATS jets rather than running all the jets in the spa. This means your spa will run more efficiently, and at a lower cost.

The ATS is available as a standard feature on the Platinum™ Spas, and is a premium option on the Escape™ Spas, Escape Plus™ Spas, Platinum Plus™ Spas, and the Swim Pro™ Swim & Fitness Spas.

Additionally, warm water temporarily relieves stiffness and joint aches, increasing flexibility.

Hydrotherapy before bedtime may assist in getting a more restful night of sleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends soaking in hot water before sleeping due to the associated calming effects.

Both effects result in a truly refreshed morning without the grogginess that sleep aids can leave behind.
