Underwater treadmill

All of the workout, none of the impact. The Hot Spring Underwater Treadmill is an optional extra designed for our range of Endless Pools swim spas. Folded into the front of the machine when not in use, it unfurls onto the floor of your swim spa at the push of a button, with the spa’s hydraulic propulsion system also generating a current to run against should you want an extra challenge.

Hot Spring’s Underwater Treadmill greatly expands your swim spa experience, increasing opportunities for weight loss, rehabilitation, pain management and cross-training. For those with arthritis, back problems or any other type of chronic pain, walking or jogging in water can make a huge difference to physical and mental wellbeing. For those looking to increase fitness levels, the reduced wear and tear on muscles and joints means that cardiovascular exercise has never been more fun and more effective.

How does an underwater treadmill work?

The Underwater Treadmill unfurls itself from the front of the Endless Pools swim spa and onto the floor of the tub. Once in place, both the treadmill and the swim spa current can be set to the speed of your choice. The machine is capable of going up to a brisk 9kph and can be lowered to less than 1kph. Adjust the speed while you run to reap maximum rewards.

Workout complete, the Underwater Treadmill can be folded back into the front of the swim spa with a press of a button! Measuring 127cm long, 80cm wide (with a belt width of 50cm) and just 12cm deep, the treadmill neatly folds away to ensure your swim-in-place experience isn’t affected.

How to use an underwater treadmill

The Hot Spring Underwater Treadmill has been designed for all ages, body types and levels of mobility. Users range from the elderly to Olympic triathletes, there’s no wrong way to enjoy an underwater walk or run! How you use the underwater treadmill will depend on what you hope to get out of it.

Those with limited mobility might take things at a slower pace, enjoying the feeling of unencumbered movement. Athletes on the other hand might use the treadmill for workouts that are particularly long and intense, as the low impact and high level cardio combination offered by the Underwater Treadmill allows them to push their fitness to the limit.

Benefits of an underwater treadmill

As a revolutionary technology that is changing the fields of sports medicine and physical therapy, the Hot Spring Underwater Treadmill brings a wealth of benefits, centred around making fitness accessible, enhancing rehabilitation and offering unique cross-training opportunities:

Promotes a greater range of motion: By bearing as little as 20% of their body weight when chest-deep, people with chronic pain can use the Underwater Treadmill to greatly extend their flexibility and range of motion.

Reduces risk in gait training: The elderly or those going through rehab can undergo gait training without the fear of falling, leading to more confidence and better results.

Improves stamina: Lower impacts on the body means that exercise sessions can be longer and more intense, seriously improving fitness levels.

Heals and strengthens soft tissues: Low impact exercise gives muscles and tendons the opportunity to heal and strengthen.

Reduces blood pressure: Not only does exercise lower blood pressure, but also the warm water of the swim spa, increasing the circulation of nutrient-rich blood to the body.
