Runners rejoice! Swim spas can help improve your running

Parallax 14IX Exercise Swim SpaTime to get out of that winter funk and start hitting the trails and running again. If you need some extra help getting your body conditioned for your running routine, regular swimming in a swim spa may be the answer!

The United States Masters Swimming Committee believes swimming can help you improve your running, making your sessions smoother and allowing you to run longer. Here are four reasons why:

  • Improved breathing. Proper swimming techniques force rhythmic breathing. Better breath control practiced during swimming can translate easily into greater breath control on a run—you’ll be more efficient, and experience smoother runs.
  • Improved balance. Swimming helps to develop upper body strength—key for runners to help control their stride. Increasing upper body strength through swimming eliminated undue stress other aerobic exercise might cause on your body.
  • Improved pace. Rhythmic breathing during swimming translates perfectly for pacing skills while running. Whether you’re training for endurance events or for simple sprints, swimming will help.
  • Improved flexibility. Swimming, thanks to its ability to allow you to exercise in a buoyant environment, definitely aids in developing upper and lower body flexibility. Kicking and strokes both help improve overall flexibility. Adding fins and ankle weights will enhance your workout, and encourage ligament and tendon strengthening to support ankle movement during runs. It will also help with hip flexibility.

If you want to get back into great running shape, consider incorporating a swim spa into your routine! It could give you that extra edge you’ve always wanted.

Infrared saunas can help improve heart health

Finnleo Infrared SaunaFebruary is American Heart Awareness Month. Cardiovascular disease is the #1killer of men and women in the United States. The amount of money attributed to health care, medications and lost productivity due to cardiovascular disease (including heart disease, stroke & high blood pressure) is in excess of $300 billion annually.

Doctors in Japan worked for over 20 years testing the benefits of infrared sauna therapy related to heart health. Known as waon therapy, it utilizes a combination of 15 minute sauna sessions (at 140 degrees Fahrenheit) coupled with 30 minute rest periods outside the sauna wrapped in towels.

The study concluded that waon therapy benefited the heart in a variety of ways:

  • It improved artery health. Arteries are lined with a layer called endothelium. The cells making up this layer produce multiple compounds that help arteries resist plaque development, blood clots and constriction. Therapy involving infrared sauna use was shown to improve the function of the endothelium.
  • It reduced the number of molecules that trigger inflammation. Our blood is filled with molecules that trigger inflammation, often caused by heart disease, stress, being overweight, and eating processed foods. After a few weeks of waon therapy, the levels of these molecules had decreased.
  • It improved the ability to exercise. Perhaps thanks to healthier endothelium and the reduction of inflammation, those going through waon therapy discovered they could do light exercising (including walking) even when they had been previously limited by heart of leg vascular issues.

129 patients were included in the study that had heart problems. Over a five year period, the patients who continued waon therapy a minimum of twice a week ended up cutting their re-hospitalization from heart disease by 50%.

If you have any chronic heart conditions, consult your doctor about the possibility of including infrared sauna therapy as part of your treatment regimen. It could make a big difference in your overall well- being—never mind what it will do for your mood!
