Michael Phelps Swim Spa vs. Lap Pools

When it comes to ease of installation, maintenance, engineering, performance and cost of ownership, the Michael Phelps Swim Spa clearly outperforms the traditional lap pool.

Installing a lap pool is a major construction project that requires a sizeable investment in both time and money. The initial cost of a traditional, in-ground lap pool varies based on size and location, but typically starts at $50,000 and goes up from there. The lap pool installation process begins with excavating your backyard and can take anywhere from three to six weeks to complete. In contrast, a Michael Phelps Swim Spa requires no excavation and can be installed in a single day.

Typically, lap pools are six feet wide and about three and a half feet deep. This shallow depth can make aquatic exercise and aquatic therapy difficult. Additionally, swimming in a lap pool requires the swimmer to turn at the wall in order to achieve an adequate distance workout. Because most backyards and budgets aren’t large enough to accommodate a 25-meter pool, these frequent turns disrupt stroke rhythm and decrease the effectiveness of the workout.

In comparison, the propulsion current of a Michael Phelps Swim Spa allows for an endless swim workout and the depth of the Michael Phelps Swim Spa also means more effective aquatic exercise and aquatic therapy is achievable. Deeper water more fully supports your body and results in a fuller range of motion, increased buoyancy, greater resistance and improved results. All of these benefits, coupled with the compact size of a Michael Phelps Swim Spa make it a practical addition to your home or patio.

What’s more, the Michael Phelps Swim Spa is the only product on the market to offer the SNAPP workout app. This industry-leading app includes pre-programmed workouts, tracking and customization for various types of exercise including swimming, aquatic exercise and aquatic therapy.

The Michael Phelps Swim Spa is more cost-effective and easier to maintain than a traditional lap pool and is clearly more superior in its design, engineering and performance. Named for the best swimmer of all time, it is the perfect fit for customers who demand more and refuse to settle for less.
