It actually burns calories to help lose weight.

A hot tub can actually burn calories?! We know, and it’s fantastic. What is better than sitting in a tub of hot water and burning calories while you relax? We can’t think of anything better. While you won’t be burning off hundreds of calories sitting in a hot tub, it still adds enough heat to make your body work. Spending 15 to 20 minutes in a hot tub each evening will boost how many calories you burn each day easily.

It will help your muscles to recover faster.

In addition to helping you burn a few extra calories, the hot tub will allow your muscles to recover faster so that you can continue to exercise in all of your favorite ways. We have all been set back by an injury or sore muscle before, and it is no fun to have fitness goals thwarted in this way. Soaking in your hot tub will ease muscle tension and help your body to recoup each day so that maybe those moments can be prevented or at least over with more quickly. 

A hot tub will help you sleep better, which will help you lose weight.

It is well known that sleep is directly related to health and weight. If you are not sleeping at night, it will impact your whole body and mind. Soaking in a hot tub each evening will help your body to unwind and be ready to sleep throughout the night. We know most people can use a little boost in that department. Good sleep hygiene is the key to meeting any health and wellness goals you have set for yourself.

Hot tubs can help with other health issues.

If you have other health issues that complicate your journey to lose weight, a hot tub may be able to help alleviate those, as well. Things like the pain associated with arthritis or diabetes can be relieved in a hot tub. It will also help some with lowering your blood pressure and increasing blood circulation. If you have questions about any of these specifically, feel free to ask one of our expert sales associates when visiting our store. They will be happy to help you understand how a hot tub could support your specific health concern.
