Who wants to exercise and get in shape without feeling like it’s a workout? If you raised your hand then you probably want to know how to get fit in your pool this summer, right? We know that many of the pool owners we work with want to not only have fun, but to get healthier and their pool is the ideal place to do just that.

The swimming pool contractors from Tipton Pools in Knoxville, Tennessee can work with you to get the pool of your dreams constructed and then work with you to keep the pool water cleaned, serviced and maintained so the pool water is always clean and swimmable.

When you swim, you’re not risking injury to your joints and bones like you would when you jog or run. Even bike riding can lead to knee or hip pain. Swimming is a relaxing and full body workout that puts no stress or strain on your muscles and joints.

Why a swimming pool workout?

As mentioned, swimming puts no stress or strain on your muscles and joints BUT it is a great cardio workout, enhances your lung capacity and works all your muscles.

Exercising in a pool can be a comfortable way to work out even if it’s hot and humid.
