Hot Tub Benefits Part 1
You don't have to go to the gym. If you want to get in shape but hate working out, a hot tub is the perfect solution. You can do it in the comfort of your own home, with friends or family members and even in your swimsuit or underwear if that's what makes you feel comfortable!
Hot water can do a lot of things, but one of its most notable benefits is improving circulation. The heat causes blood vessels to expand and relax, which increases blood flow throughout the body. This can help with muscle pain and arthritis because it reduces inflammation in those areas. And because hot water helps to relieve stress, it's also been shown to improve sleep quality--a win-win situation!
The buoyancy reduces body weight on joints and acts as resistance while exercising. It will also help improve your balance because you'll be floating in a different environment than what you're used to.
Buoyancy can help with strengthening exercises, such as push-ups or planks, by reducing the amount of force needed to perform them (the water supports part of your bodyweight). You can also use it for stretching by floating in different positions for extended periods of time. For example: if you have tight hamstrings from sitting at work all day? A hot tub might help loosen those muscles up!
