At Aquos Pools in Manteca, California, we’re not just about building pools; we’re about improving the way you live by offering health benefits of a swimming pool that impact every area of your life. 

Our family-owned and operated business, in operation since 1977, is dedicated to creating one-of-a-kind outdoor experiences, improving the way swimming pools impact the environment, and being champions of wellness. 

The wide world of watery well-being is our wheelhouse, and we are eager advocates of the many health benefits of owning a swimming pool. Here are a few of the ways that you can swim your way to fitness and optimal health. 

The Swimmin’ Gym in Your Backyard

Swimming is more than just a way to beat the heat; it’s a fantastic full-body workout with minimal impact and stress on your joints. 

Moderate laps in a swimming pool will engage every major muscle in your body, making swimming one of the most effective forms of exercise. 

A little time in water cooler than your body temperature has health benefits as well: It helps with recovery from muscle stress, may reduce inflammation, and may even help you control your weight.

Cardio Aquatics

Our breathtaking custom swimming pools tend to quicken the pulse a bit, so it’s the least we can do to share the heart-healthy good news: swimming is a cardiovascular superstar. 

Swimming gets your heart rate up, effectively boosting your cardiovascular fitness while being gentle on your joints. Regular sessions in the pool can help maintain a healthy heart and improve lung function, leading to a longer, more active life and more time in your swimming pool!

Resistance Training

Whether it’s for looks or health or to be a better athlete, many of us seek a peak physique. 

But the most common routines for developing muscle require trips to the gym or small fortunes invested in personal fitness equipment, coupled with high-impact repetitions that may not be as invigorating as getting cool in the pool. 

Swimming builds muscle strength and endurance, creating a totally toned body. Plus, the resistance of the water adds an extra challenge, helping you develop lean, strong muscles.

Weight Wellness

We think you’re beautiful the way you are. So is a swimming pool from Aquos Pools. 

Maintaining a healthy weight becomes more enjoyable when you’re splashing around in your swimming pool. 

Swimming is a calorie-burning powerhouse, torching up to 500 calories per hour, depending on your intensity. It’s an excellent way to maintain your weight and shed the guilt about that extra dessert with lunch.

Less Stress 

It can be a stressful world. We’re all trying to make it better, but that’s a tall task that takes a ton out of us. 

Swimming is a therapeutic escape. The rhythmic strokes and soothing sensation of being in the water have a calming effect, reducing stress levels and promoting mental well-being. Just a few laps can help wash away the worries of the day. 

Balance and Flexibility

The kinetic resistance of water immersion, especially while swimming, does wonders for your coordination, balance, and posture. 

The fluid movements required to glide through the water build up your body’s balance and help improve posture. Plus, it promotes flexibility, making it easier to reach for that sunscreen bottle during summer.
