5 Reasons Why Kelowna Pools Are Great for a Good Workout at Home

People who own Kelowna pools don’t have to be pro athletes to get a good workout.

People who own Kelowna pools don’t have to be pro athletes to get a good workout.

When homeowners install Kelowna pools in their backyards, it’s usually for one of (or a combination of) the following reasons:

  • Family leisure
  • Entertaining
  • Fitness

For the latter point, having your own swimming pool is major perk if you want to live a healthy, active lifestyle. And fortunately, you don’t have to be Michael Phelps to benefit from the time you spend splashing around in the water.


1. Avoid the Crowds

There’s no denying that the H2O Adventure + Fitness Centre in Kelowna is an impressive community facility. However, of all the swimming pools Kelowna residents use, H2O is the busiest. Whether you’re looking to swim laps or you want to spend some family time, there are always going to be other people hanging about.

If you prefer a little privacy with your workout, you’re not going to find it in a public facility.


2. Low-impact Exercise

One of the nicest things about working out in a pool is it’s easy on your body. Not only does water provide a form of resistance to enhance a workout, it stabilizes the body to prevent injury. You can easily create a workout program that’s suitable for:

  • All ages and abilities
  • Those recovering from injury
  • People who want to lose weight

Many people assume working out in Kelowna pools is only for the elderly. However, you can make your workout as challenging as you want. Many professional athletes use pools to improve strength and conditioning. For example, basketball players use resistance training to increase their jumping ability.


3. No Gym Pass Required

Gym passes can be quite expensive. Even a basic membership can cost well in excess of $100 per month, and that’s if you sign a contract. Obviously, hiring Kelowna contractors to install a swimming pool is a major expense, however, that cost will be offset by the resulting increase in your property value and quality of life.


4. No Excuses

If you struggle to get off the couch and drag yourself to the gym, you’re not alone. It takes a fair bit of motivation to hop in the car and drive somewhere just so you can work up a sweat. By having a pool in your yard, all you have to do is walk out the backdoor and your workout will be there waiting.


5. Encourage Your Kids to Be Active

Kids absolutely love swimming. By providing them with a backyard pool, you’ll be encouraging them to adopt a healthy lifestyle that will benefit them later on in life.

By spending time with your children in the pool, you instantly become a positive role model. While they splash around, you can squeeze in a workout. It’s a win-win!
