Swimming pools aren’t anymore a feature exclusive to homes of the rich and famous. More and more homeowners are opting to have their own pools installed, and the perks of having one go beyond the appearance of luxury. Having a pool in your backyard actually offers many wonderful and priceless advantages.
Unlike the common high-impact exercises at the gym, low-impact water exercises mean that virtually anyone can work out without the risk of major injuries. Water exercises normally combine both aerobic and resistance training, and are activities often recommended to strengthen the heart, lungs, and muscles. A quick, cool dip in the pool after a hectic day is also an effective stress-buster.
A swimming pool in your own property encourages you to stay home instead of planning the regular summer trips to the beach. A staycation (coined from the words stay and vacation) not only saves you money that you would have used on gas and on-the-road snacks, but also allows you more time to plan your family fun time together right where you are.
Forget Facebook and Twitter; the best social networking is live social engagement. Invite friends and family members for fun time at the pool, evening pool parties, or summer barbecue get-togethers. Invite the people who matter to join you in celebrating special milestones in your family’s life.
