A Swim Spa With A Difference; Introducing The New E550 Endless Pools Fitness System

With a wealth of choice available on the swim spa market, it’s a good idea to visualise how you see yourself using one early on in your search. 

For some, it’s a place to bring the whole family together; with the kids swimming and splashing around while the adults relax in the spa seats. Or perhaps you’re serious about your fitness and searching for the ultimate counter current swimming pool – whatever your reasons, finding the swim spa that best suits your needs is key.

Different by design

Endless Pools E550 Fitness SystemThe newest model by industry leader Endless Pools was designed based around customer feedback, resulting in a truly unique swim spa. 

Building on the success of the popular E500 in the Endless Pools range, the E550 is the same 15’ length but with a width increase of 13cm, making the E550 the widest swim spa in the range at 239cm.

Featuring the signature Endless Pools Fastlane as the counter current swimming machine, optional underwater treadmill and resistance bands, this is an all-round total body fitness centre suitable for any swim stroke or water workout – just perfect for butterfly and breast stroke fans!

By relocating the steps to the front of the swim spa and replacing the standard hydrotherapy massage seats with two standing massage stations, every inch of space is made available for exercising in.

Low impact, low maintenance

The Endless Pools Fastlane swimming pool counter current system provides a deep, broad current helping you swim in place and the current easily adjusts to suit all levels, from toddlers to triathletes. 

For alternative aquatic workouts, use the resistance bands and add resistance by turning the fastlane swimming machine on for the ultimate core stability builder!  If you choose the Underwater Treadmill, you’ll also feel the benefits of walking or running minus the stresses of land-based exercise.

Whichever water-based workout you enjoy, you’ll reap all the same physical benefits as traditional exercise with low impact on your joints and muscles – say hello to faster recovery times and less injuries!

E550 Fitness System featuring the Endless Pools FastlaneAs with all swim spas in the Endless Pools range, the E550 features a durable, steel-framed cabinet with a modern, sleek design - designed with both style and functionality in mind while being virtually maintenance free.

The Endless Pools Fastlane experience

One thing that is highly recommended is to ‘wet test’ a swim spa before making that all-important decision.  After all, this isn’t an everyday purchase and you want to get a true feel for what it’ll be like to actually use in real life. We currently have two swim spas by Endless Pools available to try, the X500 from the SwimCross jetted swim current range and the E2000 featuring the signature Endless Pools FastLane counter current system, so that customers can try both out and help them decide which type suits their needs best.

Finding Your Perfect Swim Spa Fit

Are swim spas going to be big enough to swim in?

Endless Pools E2000 Fitness System swimspa swimming and hot tub This is a question we get asked regularly from customers looking at purchasing swim spas, and the answer is yes, of course. You don’t need a large area or a deep body of water to be able to swim effectively. If you’ve ever used public swimming pools you probably didn’t need to adjust your swimming stroke when transitioning from the deep end to the shallow end, and the shallow end of a municipal pool will usually measure 0.9 metres in depth (some of the swimspas in our range are deeper than this).

So what is a swim spa and how does it work?

Well, a swim spa is a product that allows you to swim continuously against a current without having to turn or change direction, often referred to as a counter current swimming pool. Whether you're a fitness fanatic training to keep fit and healthy, or looking to endure the extreme demands of competitive swimming, open water swimming, triathlons or iron man competitions, a swim spa can provide you with a tailored, adjustable swim current strength to suit your individual fitness needs. They also have their own integrated heaters so you can adjust the water temperature to suit you. They're a bit like an oversized hot tub swimming machine!

Swim spas work by either using a counter current swim jets to create an adjustable water current to swim against or, in the case of our Endless Pools Fitness Systems, use the unrivalled Endless Pools Fastlane to provide the water current for you. Either counter current pool will work well to help you increase your swimming fitness and choice is usually dependent on your needs and proposed use.

Which counter current swimming machine will be the best for me?

This will depend entirely on your individual needs and how you will be using the swim spa. You will either be considering counter current swim jets or an Endless Pools Fastlane. Don’t worry, our trained sales staff are here to help you make the right choice for you but we can let you know a little bit about each type of system to help you understand how to make the right choice for you. We also have the X500 Swimcross Exercise System and E2000 Endless Pools Fitness System available to view and wet test at our Cardiff showroom, just bring your swimming costume and a towel to try these fabulous swim spas for yourself!

Counter current swim jets are designed for both swim and water workout exercising and are suitable for all ages, body sizes and skill levels. Our SwimCross Exercise Systems feature five swim jets and are driven by two pumps providing a powerful and steady water stream of 1,200 litres per minute. The SwimCross jet design is also unlike many other because they don’t rely on introducing air to the swim current to add extra force, instead they use a boost effect to draw in more water, multiplying the volume and resulting in a stronger resistance for swimming against with less turbulence. This means you will find it easier to stay centered on the swimlane and the unique lift provided by the lower jets gives you added buoyancy when in the water.

The Endless Pools Fitness Systems is a swimming pool counter current system that will appeal to regular swimmers and fitness enthusiasts right through to serious competitive swimmers, triathletes and iron men and women, it offers you the ultimate in swim lane technology. The industry leading Endless Pools Fastlane provides a superior swim-in-place experience, is custom made and the hydraulically powered propulsion system creates a laminar current of up to 19,000 litres per minute that is wider than your body and deeper than your stroke! Featuring multiple conditioning grills help smooth and redirect the water, removing air resulting in a counter current pool that is completely free of turbulence. Even at full power it feels like swimming in a smooth, open water current. The swimming machine flow can also be adjusted from speeds ranging from 5:33 minutes (gentle breaststroke) to 1:14 minutes per 100 metres and can be precisely adjusted for perfect pace control.

These swim spas also have some great optional extras to further enhance your swim training. Choose a swim pace display system to really start measuring your performance efforts or, if you opt for a system without an underwater treadmill, add an underwater floor mirror.

Can I choose a size of swim spa that’s right for me?

Yes you can. The SwimCross and Fitness Systems are available in a number of different sizes and depth to suit your particular needs. The respective swim lane lengths for each swim spa are then determined by the distance from the front of the swim jet to the start of the first step at the rear of the unit. This gives you an indication of the fit you will need to comfortably swim within the swim lane offered by each model.

Using Swimming As An Exercise Routine

Swimming against a jetted Swimcross Exercise System

Is Swimming The Ideal Exercise Choice For All?

Whether you enjoy the occasional leisurely dip in the swimming pool or competing for your club team, we all know that swimming provides great benefits to health and wellbeing.  And with today’s hectic pace of life, it’s never been more important to dedicate time to taking care of ourselves and using that time wisely to improve our health, fitness and general wellbeing. 

Here are four reasons to consider fitting swimming into your workout routine:

#1 Swimming Boosts Mindfulness

While most forms of exercise are proven to release endorphins and aid mental wellbeing, the act of swimming forces you to truly ‘live in the moment’ as your visual focus is solely on the water not easily distracted by anything around you. In addition, the sound of the rushing water as you move aids in transporting you to a ‘zen’ like mental state – helping you to switch off from the stresses of the day.  Swimming has even been referred to as the Moving Meditation, a great option if you aren’t keen on traditional meditation styles. Here's 4 useful tips for turning your swimming routines into moving meditation.

#2 Time Savvy Workouts

Did you know that exercising in water makes your body work harder than on dry land? So swap that 45 minute exercise class the other side of town for a 30 minute aquatic workout instead when time is of the essence. Here's 8 more benefits of swimming that you may not be aware of. And don't worry, we understand that not everyone has the space for traditional swimming pools so our superb range of swimspas allows you to swim in place with the added benefits of easy installation of a unit that is totally self-contained.

#3 Swimming Can Help Relieve Asthma Symptoms

It can prove difficult trying to find the most suitable form of keeping fit when you suffer from asthma or respiratory system complaints, particularly as breathing in cold, dry air is often a trigger for symptoms.  The air you breathe in while swimming (particularly indoors) is moist, warm and humid which does not cause the same irritation in the lungs and airways – helping asthma sufferers to enjoy a work out without the additional struggle of battling symptoms. Here's more information on why regular exercise offers many benefits for people with asthma.

#4 Full Body Workout Minus The Impact

Every stroke and kick when swimming provides excellent resistance, as water is denser than air, and while your limbs are working hard your core stability comes into play to keep your head, neck and spine stable while your heart and lungs pump simultaneously. This combination of factors ticks every box in the great workout checklist; Aerobic Fitness, Core Stability Strengthening and Muscle Building/Definition.  Swimming is also a low-impact form of exercise, making it the ideal choice for those recovering from injury or suffering from joint and mobility issues.

Regardless of your ability level, swimming can provide some unique health and wellness benefits for everyone - whether you are 8 months or 80 years old!
