If you plan to use your pool for exercise, let our pool design specialists at Apex Pavers & Pools know. We can design a pool that will help keep you healthy under the Florida sun.
We’ll design and build a lap pool to suit you and your family’s needs. Ideally, lap pools should have an extended length (at least 45 feet long) and a width of at least 8 feet for a single swimmer (add 4 feet for an additional swimmer). The depth must be deep enough for turns at each end, and we recommend at least 4 feet deep.
According to Active.com’s author Alex Kostich, there are several reasons why you should use your pool for optimal health:
1. Heart Helper: Swimming provides unparalleled cardiovascular conditioning, provided you practice consistently and with good technique.
2. Balance Your Build : Swimming builds longer, leaner muscles that complement the shorter denser muscles that develop from weight training.
3. Cross-Training: Swimming not only boosts cardiovascular capacity while increasing muscle strength, but it also gives your body a break from higher-impact activities like basketball, running, and weightlifting.
