Above Ground Swimming Pools As A Fitness Tool?
Fitness equipment is now a multi-billion dollar industry. Go check out the sites and an almost unending selection of high tech equipment is offered for sale now and it seems that none of it's cheap. So then why don't these sites ever mention above ground swimming pools?
I suppose it's for the same reason that car dealers don't mention motorcycles in their adds. It's a less expensive alternative that will get you where you want to go for less money. The fact is that pools for years have been used to work out in and still are by a lot of people who want to stay in shape.
One thing has changed though and that's that prefabricated pools have put this exercise option within reach of far more people. People who are not only interested in getting shape but losing weight too!
That's right the human body burns far more calories when it is in a cool body of water during exercise regimens. Calories have to be burned to offset the coolness of the water. It's just a simple fact that's ignored by far too many people.
Also people are regularly plunking down thousand of dollars for the latest low impact, high tech cardio machines, when they can get the exact same low impact cardio workout in a cool pool. Also instead of sweating and overheating, they remain cool as a cucumber as the calories are burned off to keep their body warm.
Above ground pools can be set up, filled and in use in as little as two days and start out at around $1000. Also if the ground is flat, no ground work is needed. They also come in complete easy to install kits that contain everything that's required for operation including the pump and filter.
