from Swim University

Hot Tubs that are still open in the Winter (or indoor hot tubs for that matter) can be an invigorating activity.  Unfortunately, beyond soaking in the theraputic waters, or snuggling up with a loved-one, there isn't much more that you can do in a hot tub.  This post from Swim University presents 7 very ingenious games that will make one's hot tub experience that much more fulfilling, and increase the time spent inside.

Fit Wet: The Exercise Hot Tub Bike

from Spring Dance Hot Tubs

Exercise isn't easy, otherwise we wouldn't have an obesity epidemic in the United States.  Our overindulgence, particularly during the holiday season is potentially damaging to our health, and has uncalculable costs to society.  Those that are looking to workout to lose the excess weight are sometimes discouraged by the intensity of the exercises, and other times thwarted by injures caused by higher impact workouts.  This post from Spring Dance Hot Tubs presents a familiar exercise that can help shed those unwanted pounds, in an unfamiliar place.

How to Lose Weight in a Hot Tub

by Matt Giovanisci, swimuniversity.com

I've struggled with my weight since 4th grade. I started out as a skinny kid and worked my way up to a fat kid. In high school I was a skinny teenager and later finished off just being a fat guy.

For years I ate whatever I wanted and threw caution to the wind, which resulted in testing the durability of my bathroom scale. However, when I watched what I ate and exercised I felt awesome, and my bathroom scale thanked me.

Since the beginning of 2013, I have managed to lose 15 pounds by following a SUPER easy diet and exercise routine, which feels effortless. In light of my success, I wanted to share my excitement and write this post to encourage others to join me on the path to easy weight loss.

Last year, I met Susan Atkinson and Susan Irby via social media. Susan Atkinson is a yoga instructor and creator of a new Hot Tub Yoga DVD that is now available for purchase. Her videos are what inspired me to create my Hot Tub Yoga Infographic.

Susan Irby is an Award-winning TV, Radio host and best-selling author known as The Bikini Chef. Her newest book, The Clean Separation, is a self-help book with author Kara Landau.

We teamed up to create an easy way to help you lose weight in a hot tub by combining the ease of practicing Hot Tub Yoga and the benefits of following a simple, healthy diet. This is not a gimmick, nor are we trying to sell you any "secrets" to weight loss. Shedding pounds requires diet and exercise, but as a struggler myself, I've found when you try to drastically change the way you live your life, it can often lead to failure. It's all about making small changes that lead to big results.
