BEGINNER

CROSS-TRAIN PROGRAM

Full Body Workout

This is for people who are either completely new or somewhat new to aquatic exercise training. A beginner is anyone who

has been dry training for less than 6 months and are just starting out with their Swim Spa. We start you with a set of designed performance exercises consisting of general overall workout that stretch and work your entire body, then take you through a full range of focused exercises working specific areas. Our goal is to increase your overall balance, strength and endurance using dumb bells, web gloves, fan paddles and exercise bar.

 

INTERMEDIATE

CROSS-TRAIN PROGRAM

Full Body Workout

This is the next level up. If you have been aquatic exercising consistently for the last 6 months or more, then you most likely can start at this level.

At this point, intermediates would have already used some type of beginner program that allowed them to build up some base level of balance, strength, muscle, improved workout capacity and endurance, and perfected their form on every exercise done thus far.

At this level the addition of resistance and tether bands and working against the swim spa’s jets for resistance is utilised. This is the category that the majority of the population falls into.

 

ADVANCED

CROSS-TRAIN PROGRAM

Full Body Workout

The Advanced Level to this program would be considered the highest aquatic Cross Training experience offered.

The people exercising at this level of advanced training are extremely close to reaching their peak physical potential.

When your body has almost improved as much as it can,

you are considered advanced. The person working out at this level is driven and probably involved in other sports. At this level you are now using the attributes of the swim spa to its full potential utilising the jets for increased resistance, standing and working through the exercises free and clear of any support for balance. This program has also been divided into a three day cycle so that each day of exercising focuses on a specific area of your body.

Reviews: 

I would like to take this opportunity to let you know that we are so pleased with our purchase of the swim spa; initially we were unsure if we would use the swim part of it but how wrong we were!!!! Not only do we use it regularly, but suddenly we see our family more often that we used to. What more can you ask than having a work out and then a spa while watching the sun go down (pure bliss). We would not hesitate to recommend the Swim Spa to anyone who was not entirely convinced that this was the unit they wanted.

From the moment we met the staff at Canadian Spa we knew we were in good hands.  So it didn't take us long to choose which swim spa to buy with all their help.  Delivery was when expected, even though in the morning when we woke up it was thick snow, everything went ahead as planned.  The staff are always on hand or if not they ring back straight away, if I have any questions. The swim spa has been an investment we have enjoyed and exercised in so much and plan to do a lot more in the future..

The man who delivered the swim spa was so helpful! He worked ever so hard with the men from the crane company by advising them where to lift it etc. Without his help, the delivery would have been much tougher. Can you please thank him for us. The swim spa is now working and all the little problems I've had you've only been a phone call away. Your service and back up are second to none. I would recommend anyone who wants a spa or a swim spa to deal with you. Thank you for all your help.

Just to say a lovely thank you for our new swim spa, It is as great as our previous two but even better...We are enjoying it immensely and as always delivery from the driver was excellent along with the service from the team in sales.

We purchased our spa just under two years ago to give ourselves a boost after a particularly difficult time. We had considered a hot tub, but decided we wanted to have more freedom to float and swim. After trying out the display spa at Canadian Spa Company’s offices in Redhill, we were hooked. The support we had from the company before, during, and after delivery was excellent, and we had personal help over the phone with the initial set-up, which was very straightforward. It didn’t take long for us to be enjoying the 16’ length and 72 jets of the spa, exercising with the swim and river jets, and relaxing with the massage jets. The added bonuses were the fantastic LED lighting system, creating a magical swimming atmosphere in the dark, and the MP3 speaker system. The spa is nearly two years old now, and has had regular use all year-round, including on Christmas and New Year’s Day! It is still a very big treat to have a swim and relaxing massage at the end of a hard day!

 

I have had the spa for over a year. Its a great asset to the house with loads of adjustable jets and the power of the exercise jet allows for a real swim (or a back beating massage) the lights and sound are a great addition... I am really not sure what to criticize as it works fine so far. The reason I went to Canadian spa was that they promised good aftercare and after a lot of research, a top spec product at a competitive price. I have contacted them quite a few times before and after installation with questions about accessories and jet functionality or control and they have absolutely been first class, friendly and attentive.  It sound like I am a fake poster when i read this and promoting the company. I am not but I like to criticize when its deserved and show appreciation when I have had a good experience. I hope it doesn't suddenly fall apart  tomorrow and I regret this but feel pretty confident about the spa and the customer relations after a year and a half. it would be good to have more color choices is the only negative I can think of.
