Three Reasons You Should Be in the Pool

This year, enhance your outdoor living environment by creating your ideal oasis, complete with a backyard swimming pool. Contact a local pool contractor like Platinum Pools & Spas today at (480) 888-9200. When you do, you’ll enjoy many advantages, most notably the convenience of stepping outside your backdoor and dipping into the calm blue waters of your pool.

Here are some of the reasons you should be in a backyard swimming pool this summer.

Escape Valley Temps

Valley residents are all too familiar with the heat of the summer, with temperatures rising as Phoenix transitions into spring, followed by the summer. What better way to escape Valley temps than to consult a local pool contractor like Platinum Pools & Spas about adding a swimming pool with your choice of customizable options and add-ons such as water features, swim-up refreshment areas, and sun shelves perfect for creating the ideal day in the water when summer temperatures reach into the triple-digits. A backyard swimming pool offers families and individuals an easily accessible option for relaxation and recreation day and, by enhancing the poolscape with lighting, night.

Supports Good Health

According to the American Heart Association, people should aim to get 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity spread throughout the week. For example, you can choose some form of exercise five times a week, for 30-minute intervals. As an alternative, the association says that if partaking in vigorous aerobic activities, aim for 75 minutes. The latter can be achieved by consulting a local pool contractor about putting in a lap pool, where you can swim laps for 15 minutes, five days a week. You can also choose to combine these two levels of cardiovascular exercises with the potential for reducing the risk for certain health conditions like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Brilliant Way to Relax and De-stress

Whether it’s a traffic jam or an approaching deadline, there is no shortage of daily stressors that can zap your energy and leave you feeling out of sorts, potentially even ill. The American Heart Association reports that stress, particularly when chronic, can affect your health and well-being. That’s why it’s imperative to find ways to carve out moments for “me time” in which you can relax and de-stress. One of the best ways to do this is to ask your local pool contractor about installing a sun shelf along with your new pool. Then, you can the place lounge chairs, grab an engaging book, and an ice-cold beverage to focus on yourself while lounging in the water.
