One of the best things about having your very own backyard swimming pool is that you get the benefits of exercise without the drudgery! Pools make it so easy to get in a low-impact workout, without feeling like you’re working at all!
Ideal for Kids
Wear the kids out with this Swimline Water Wheel Pool Toy. From races to simply using up all that energy, this pool toy is appropriate for anyone who weighs less than 140 pounds.
Another way to get the little guys to use up all that extra energy is with this pool-friendly inflatable Sea Saw! It’s a whopping 100 inches long, and unlike the playground variety, you don’t have to worry about injuries: if a child falls off, he or she will simply splash into the water!
Great for Competition
If you’re the competitive type — or just want to include plenty of people — you’re going to love these inflatable games! First, the Giant Shootball Inflatable Pool Toy offers a basketball-type game with multiple ports. While it includes one ball, you can easily play using several.
This inflatable Pool Volleyball Game from Intex comes with an inflatable 94-inch-long base — just big enough to play a decent game, but without taking up the entire pool.
Still competitive, the Log Flume Water Joust Game from Swimline is designed with adults in mind. It includes two 58-inch-long, log-shaped floats, along with two 4-foot-long log-shaped boppers. Get your Renaissance game on and strengthen that core, trying to keep your balance against your opponent!
Another way to strengthen that core with friends is by rocking around in the water in your Shock Rocker Inflatable Pool Toy! This inflatable can accommodate up to four children or adults (maximum of 650 pounds). This jumbo-sized float includes oversized head rests and is made from heavy-gauge vinyl.
Serious Exercise Items
If you’re serious enough about fitness that you don’t have to make it look like a game, that opens the door to some other water-fitness items. For instance, these Water Fan Paddles by Water Gear allow you to maximize resistance. Another way to add a little extra water resistance is to use swim gloves like these InnoGear Swim Gloves. Yet another choice for serious pool workouts is this set of Aquatic Exercise Dumbells. Like regular hand weights, these water-safe ones can help you strengthen your upper body, lower back, and abs.
For those rehabilitating after an injury, water workouts can prove extremely beneficial. If that describes your motivation, you might want to check out this book — and of course, always talk with your doctor before beginning any workout routine.
