Winter is by far the most amazing time of the year to use your hot tub.
There is nothing better than feeling all the cold air around you as you submerge your body into warm, bubbling, 100-104 degree water after a long day on the mountain.
Hot Tub Benefits for your Fitness Routine
by Caldera Spas (https://www.calderaspas.com/health-wellness/20-minute-renewal/hot-tub-benefits-for-your-fitness-routine)
Warm water is a powerhouse for recovery (http://www.calderaspas.com/health-wellness/power-warm-water) . The healing benefits of water have been known since 5th century B.C. when the Greek physician Hippocrates (http://www.greekmedicine.net/whos_who/Hippocrates.html) , widely considered the Father of Medicine, documented the therapeutic uses of water “hydropathy (http://www.calderaspas.com/health-wellness/20-minute-renewal/live-dry-recover-wet-magic-hot-tub-hydrotherapy) “.
As an athlete, you already know that ice applied to sore muscles will temporarily relieve pain (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4225921/) . But did you know that the combination of full immersion plus heat and targeted jets can massage and recharge your muscles? Time in a warm spa, especially those equipped with soothing jets, increases blood circulation (http://healthyliving.azcentral.com/therapeutic-benefits-hot-tubs-5177.html) so the blood can supply nutrients to help cells and tiss
By implementing better, more mindful recovery strategies into your routine, such as hot tub therapy (http://www.healthguidance.org/entry/16228/1/Hot-Tub-Health-Benefits.html) , you’ll combat everyday stressors and the stressors that are common to athletes, such as performance anxiety (https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/meaningful-you/201309/how-overcome-sports-performance-anxiety) .
Hot tub hydrotherapy as part of your workout regimen will add a new facet to your mind-body connection.
When you learn techniques for a positive attitude (http://www.success.com/article/mind-body-connection) , you’re likely to perform
at a much higher level, according to Dr. Michael Roizen, Cleveland Clinic’s chief wellness officer and co-author with Dr. Mehmet Oz on the best-selling YOU series of books (http://www.doctoroz.com/books) .
In other words, a clear head plus revitalized muscles can give you the competitive edge you’re chasing.
Your Caldera hot tub is specially equipped with targeted hot tub massage jets (http://www.calderaspas.com/health-wellness/20-minute-renewal/important-know-about-hot-tub-jets) and optimally designed hot tub seats (http://www.calderaspas.com/health-wellness/20-minute-renewal/what%E2%80%99s-important-know-about-hot-tub-seats) so you can navigate the entire hot tub, spending a few minutes at a time on all your muscle groups from the bottom of your feet all the way up to your shoulders and neck. We call this Hot Tub Circuit Therapy (http://www.calderaspas.com/en/health-wellness/hot-tub-circuit-therapy/#/station/3) .
Control the intensity of your hot tub jet massage (http://www.calderaspas.com/health-wellness/20-minute-renewal/what-do-i-need-know-about-spa%E2%80%99s-jet-pump-or-motor) by adjusting the jet controls for your particular target area.
Ranging from a deep forceful massage to a gentle, relaxing sensation, pick the perfect setting for you.
Overall, this concentrated attention
aids in recovery between runs or games, offers you a more restful sleep (http://www.calderaspas.com/health-wellness/20-minute-renewal/getting-to-sleep) , and helps release mental tension—a full recharge, allowing you to start fresh the next day.
No pain, no gain? Quite the opposite.
A healing-yet-energizing circuit in your hot tub may make the difference in your fitness regimen, allowing you to beat your personal best or reach goals you never thought possible.
If you have major injuries, check with a physician to find out how hot tub therapy can benefit your individual healing process.
