Top 3 Benefits of Using a Hot Tub in the Winter
There’s nothing quite like a perfectly pristine, white blanket of freshly fallen snow on the ground in Prince George, BC. The glistening winter wonderland that has become your backyard and surrounding environment is truly a sight to be seen. The best way to enjoy the peace and serenity of your backyard polar paradise is within the warmth and comfort of a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub.
1. A Gift for the Entire Family
What better gift for the family than a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub. A hot tub presents the perfect opportunity to spend regular quality time together as a family. Valuable memories can be made, while your family relaxes and enjoys the healing benefits of your spa. Everyone can benefit from the healing properties of the jet-driven water.
Not only can members of your family spend valuable time with each other, but with other loved ones as well. Extended family members, friends, and guests of all sorts can enjoy spending time with your family within the comfort of your hot tub. An outdoor hot tub installation presents the perfect opportunity to entertain guests all year long, especially in the wintertime.
2. Staying Active in the Winter
It can become increasingly difficult to stay active outdoors once the snow begins to fall. As the temperature begins to drop, and the elements advance to more extreme conditions, it can become dangerous to exercise outside in Prince George. Gone are the days of running, biking or swimming with ease. Fortunately for you, a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub presents the perfect opportunity to exercise outdoors in the winter.
You can begin your water-based workout with some light activity within the heat of the jet-infused water to warm-up your muscles and joints. Light cardiovascular activity, like treading water or kicking your feet, can be a beneficial way to warm up your body. There is a wide range of simple exercises that you can engage in within your hot tub or swim spa, depending on your goals, level of fitness and comfortability. Some light water-based exercises that you can incorporate into your exercise routine include:
- Bicycle kicks
- Torso rotations
- Reverse crunches
- Arm crossovers
- Abdominal hold
- Walking in place
- Resistance training
Your exercise routine completely depends on what is attainable for you. Regular exercise and relaxation within your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub can be very beneficial to your health. You are provided with an opportunity to not only exercise, but relax and stretch your body as well.
It is highly recommended that you meet with a physician first before beginning any exercise regimen.
3. Enjoy the Snow from the Warmth of Your Spa
Often, it can be very easy to fall into an indoor routine during the cold winter months. Although being cozy and warm inside can be comforting and relaxing at first, after a little while you may grow bored and begin to feel cooped up. A Jacuzzi® Hot Tub presents a perfect place to get some fresh air and enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors – especially when your backyard is a winter wonderland. You can experience all the benefits of being outside regularly without the negative effects of the snow and ice.
After participating in outdoor winter activities, ranging from sledding and skating to shoveling and outdoor maintenance, your body can heal and feel revitalized within the hot, bubbling water. You might even think of your hot tub as the ultimate reward for completing a difficult task, like shovelling and maintaining your property.
