Are Swim Spas Worth It?

The experience a swim spa offers is pretty hard to beat. Combining the best features from high-quality pools and hot tubs, a swim spa enables you to achieve your fitness goals while also enjoying all the relaxation and health benefits hydrotherapy offers – all in one compact solution.

Let’s take a look at all of the ways a swim spa can improve your lifestyle.


No matter what your goals are, a TidalFit® swim spa can help you achieve them. Whether you’re a jogger, a yoga enthusiast or a weight lifter, a swim spa can enhance your workouts.

Runners no longer have to worry about hip and knee pain from pounding the pavement because jogging in the water eliminates impact on your joints. The same can be said for those who enjoy aerobics or any other high-impact workout.

Aside from swimming, your spa can be used for a variety of low-impact exercises. Want to improve your cardio conditioning? Try jumping jacks, marching, jogging, or flutter kicks. The water not only eliminates the impact, but it can also add resistance, enhancing the effectiveness of every move.

Strength training can include exercises such as squats, leg raises, reverse crunches, or torso twists. You can even use resistance bands to get a good arm workout.

Finish off with some stretches to release tension and enhance flexibility. Your range of motion can increase significantly over time.

Health and Stress

Your TidalFit® swim spa is a dual-purpose unit offering both cool water for fitness and heated water for relaxation. The heated end, like a hot tub, comes complete with massaging jets to soothe tired muscles. Regular hydrotherapy offers many health benefits, including reduction of stress and anxiety, improved sleep, a decrease in joint and muscle pain, increased mobility, and detoxification and strengthening of the immune system. Hot water therapy has been found to be beneficial for those who suffer from high blood pressure, arthritis, or fibromyalgia.


Swim spas are great for any age group from the very young to seniors. A swim spa is an ideal place to teach young children to swim. Not only does it offer a safe, controlled environment, but the ability to adjust the water temperature can help to ensure that your little ones will not have chattering teeth while practicing the dog paddle.

A swim spa is also grand for playing water games with the family or hosting a party because the size accommodates more than a traditional hot tub.

How Much Do Swim Spas Cost?

Swim spas can cost as little as $10,000 for a low-end model while a unit with all of the bells and whistles can come in at as much as $30,000 or more. Mid-range spas cost anywhere from $15,000 to $21,000, depending on the options you choose.

Swim spas are much easier to afford than a traditional swimming pool, take up less space while still offering many of the benefits and require far less maintenance.

If you are ready to enjoy all of the benefits of owning a swim spa, but are worried about the price, don’t be. Many dealers offer custom-financing plans tailored to suit your budget so you can buy the spa that is right for you.
