Hi again. Welcome to anyone following my progress. Although February was a short month I was able to get in some solid training with 23,900 yards of swimming, 113 miles of running and 428 miles of biking. I avoided chocolate and all carbonated beverages and caffeine for the month and lost 5 pounds. I finished off the month with a 3 mile race where I finished 1st in my age [Read the Rest…]
It may be a cold, never-ending winter, but this Massachusetts home owner has been swimming strong all winter long.

We recently asked one of our long time owners if he would be kind enough to write about his experience with his SwimEx pool.

Stay tuned for next month’s journal! “Yes I continue to use the SwimEx for training for Ironmans. So far I have swum roughly 1,427,650 yards which [Read the Rest…]
We hope this backyard oasis in Seattle will give you some ideas on what you can do with your SwimEx pool!
One of our customers in Philadelphia had a custom (and solid!) pool cover made out of the same material as the room’s flooring. The cover is flush with the floor and can be walked on. This enables the pool room to be used a multipurpose room. It is an ingenious way to take a swim and have the family over for dinner on the same day!
We do enjoy testimonials from our customers. Especially ones that have owned a SwimEx pool for over ten years! Do you have a success story you want to share? “We have had our SwimEx for ten years now and it still runs like the day it was installed. The water is still smooth and clean and the maintenance is minimal. I just change the oil once a year and keep [Read the Rest…]

With the first cold front stretching across most of the country the number one question we get is “how can I use my pool during the winter months?”. You can winterize it with hard spa pool cover which will protect and keep the heat in your pool. You can flip the cover partially open or all the open to swim on those warmer winter days. You can also buy a [Read the Rest…]
We had to share these action photos of a residential installation provided by a very excited family in Texas. The SwimEx swim spa is being installed above ground in an open room affectionately being called “the boat house”. There is going to be a nice deck installed around the pool with a Brazilian hardwood floor and of course a lounging area for the dogs since they are managing the construction. [Read the Rest…]
One of our favorite exercise tools for ultra fitness is the Aqua Bike! The Aqua Bike features five levels of resistance with a light-weight stainless steel design, adjustable seat and handlebars that enables both aerobic and muscle conditioning in a stress-free aquatic environment. Steve Harvey recently used one on his show for a serious workout!
Richard and Estelle de Bear installed a SwimEx 500S in 1993 in a room they had specially built off the master bedroom of their Plymouth, MI home, and it still looks and works great. Estelle, who died in November, exercised in the pool for 55 minutes every morning, Richard remembers. Richard swims every other day. “The current is still powerful enough to send me through the end of the pool,” he [Read the Rest…]

You love to swim laps, but don’t like the idea of sharing the lap pool with strangers. And while you [Read the Rest…]
If your body requires some rehab, that doesn’t mean you have to go to an expensive place of rehab. Instead, work your glutes, repair your ACL, diminish your arthritis (or even ease your stress level) by committing to the best exercise of all – aquatic therapy for pain relief, anxiety and discomfort. From accidents to sports injuries (and various types of joint pain that can pop up at any age) [Read the Rest…]
