How hot tubs improve your workout sessions

Enjoying a warm, relaxing soak in your hot tub is one of the best things in life. It’s relaxing, and it just feels good. So good, in fact, that lots of people want to incorporate their hot tub into their workout regimen. It’s not a bad idea – in fact, it’s a great one. But you have to make sure you get the timing right!

Follow these tips to see how a hot tub can improve your workout sessions.

Before your Workout

Taking a quick soak before your workout can help get your body ready for exercise by relaxing your muscles. After all, hitting the gym with stiff muscles is never a good idea! This quick dip increases your circulation and blood flow, too. But remember – it’s not a replacement for stretching. You’ll still want to do that just prior to beginning your workout.

After your workout

Even though it’s oh so tempting, refrain from hitting the hot tub right after you’ve finished working out. Immediately following exercise, your muscles are inflamed and you’re dehydrated. Soaking in the warm water will increase your dehydration levels and slow the recovery process. Instead, enjoy a soothing soak 24-48 hours afterwards and you’ll get the most benefit.

This waiting period will give your muscles time to recover after becoming inflamed by exercise. Now, the warm water will increase blood flow to your muscles and help in the repair process. This is your chance to relax and fully enjoy a long, leisurely soak and hydrotherapy massage!

Now offering Curbside Water Testing by Appointment Only!

Visit us online to schedule your 15-minute water testing consultation.

Simply select your store location and choose from the appointment slots available. Due to limited availability, we will only be able to accommodate up to (1) water test per household per week until further notice and increased staffing. 

Bring your water test bottle with a sample of your pool or spa water to your scheduled appointment. Please label the test bottle with your name, and leave it in the marked bin by the front door. Then, just wait in your car while we perform the water test. We will call you with your results and our recommendations for the products you will need to balance your pool or spa water. If you’d like to go ahead and get those products while you are here, we can deliver those curbside, as well. Please know that our staff have been instructed to leave all chemical purchases outside of the front door. Unfortunately, we will be unable to load in your car at this time. Just let us know that you would like to purchase chemicals when we call with your test results, and we can process your order over the phone. Once we have completed your water test, we will leave a copy of the printed out test results, along with your empty test bottle, in the marked bin outside the front door.

Due to the limitations of staff and anticipated demand for this service, we ask that you please arrive on-time for your scheduled appointment to ensure that we can have enough time for a complete and accurate consultation. In order to keep you, our valued customer, and our staff safe, we ask that you please adhere to social distancing guidelines and give our staff at least 6’ of distance during this interaction. Thank you for being a loyal Fronheiser Pools customer!
