Is the Swim Experience Different in a Swim Spa Versus a Pool?

Fun, laughter, exercise, relaxation, and great memories with family and friends. How can you have all of these in one place? Get these benefits and more with an Endless Pools® swim spa. If you are more familiar with a traditional swimming pool, you may be wondering, “How is the swim experience different in a swim spa versus a pool?” At IHT Hot Tubs & Fireplaces, we are happy to help you understand the differences.

Location and Size for Swimming

The most noticeable difference between a swim spa and a traditional swimming pool is their size. Swim spas are typically more compact, allowing them to fit in your backyard without taking up too much real estate. Even more, because of its efficient size, you can choose to install your swim spa indoors or outdoors. Are you interested in the RecSport® , SwimCross® , or the Endless Pools Fitness Systems? We can help you determine the best size and location for your swim spa.

Swimming for Fun

Whether using a pool or swim spa, enjoying your time with friends and family is an important aspect. Similar to a traditional pool, a swim spa allows for your loved ones to join you for splashing and swimming, with or without a current. Additionally, with a swim spa you can have loved ones join you in enjoying the spa portion’s massaging jets. With an Endless Pools swim spa, the fun just keeps going!

Swimming for Fitness

When it comes to exercising in the water, a swim spa, sometimes called an exercise spa, offers a unique and effective alternative to a pool. When engaged, the resistance currents will allow you to swim for a full-body, low-impact workout. You can gain strength, heart health, and flexibility while exercising in a swim spa. In addition, Endless Pools swim spa accessories, such as the underwater treadmill, aquabike, and row kit, will help you reach your fitness goals. 


While working out in a traditional pool is possible, only in a swim spa can you also relax in the same space. The spa portion of a swim spa has built-in seats with perfectly aligned massage jets. You can eliminate sore muscles, alleviate tension, or just unwind from the day all in your swim spa. 

Time of Year for Swimming

Finally, a swim spa differs from a pool in the length of swim season. With the early onset of Colorado’s cold weather, even heated pools typically close early in the Fall. Pools are too costly to heat through Colorado’s bitter winters. Because of a swim spa’s smaller size and different insulated composition, you can enjoy your Endless Pools swim spa all year long. 

Now we’ve clarified, “Is the swim experience different in a swim spa versus a pool?” Sharing laughter and making sweet memories with family are a blessing in life. This year, enjoy these blessings in an Endless Pools swim spa. Contact us at International Hot Tubs & Fireplaces today to learn more.
