Meet the Challenger Swim Spa Series

Master Spas has been the leading swim spa manufacturer since the first model rolled off the line in 2005. 

The first H2X Swim Spa featured a patented propulsion system. Ever since, the world-class engineers have continued to develop technology to enhance the swim and exercise experience for swim spa users.

In 2010, Master Spas introduced the Michael Phelps Signature Swim Spa s. Five years later, in 2015, the Velocity Injector Plate technology for the H2X swim spa line. 

For 2019, Master Spas has unveiled a new jetted swim spa that takes performance to the next level. 

Meet the Challenger.

The Challenger swim spa, part of the H2X Fitness Swim Spa line, is unlike other jetted swim spas on the market. The water current rivals more expensive propulsion systems, giving exercisers space and convenience to enjoy an open-water experience at a lower price point.

How is the Challenger Swim Spa Different?

The Challenger series bridges the gap between fitness and performance, so you can take your training to the next level. Challenger models feature an innovative jet system that does not introduce the air into the stream. With six strategically placed jets, the system creates a smooth, wide current of water that can challenge a novice or elite with the press of a button. 

A touchscreen display and easy-to-use controls allow you to set the speed of the current and program a workout. With 25 speed settings, you can dial in your pace for endurance efforts or vary it to benefit from interval training. 

3 Reasons We Love the Challenger Swim Spa Series

1. Backyard privacy and convenience

Your time is valuable, and you don’t want to spend extra energy getting to the pool. With a Challenger swim spa by Master Spas, your next workout is just steps away — no commute or extra time spent in a locker room. And once you get into the water, you won’t have to share a lane. The time you save can be spent getting extra sleep, relaxing with family, or recovering. You might even be able to get in that extra workout that will take your training to the next level.

2. Bridging the gap between fitness and performance.

Your goals are important to you, and you should be able to chase your dreams. Forget the idea of on and off! The Challenger swim spa series features a variable speed system that allows you to adjust the force of the current. You are able to set it at a lower speed for warming up or recovery intervals, and you can increase the speed for a harder workout. Interval training and harder efforts are key to improving your swim times and performance — if that’s your goal.  Those styles of training can also benefit your overall fitness, aid with weight loss, and more.

3. Recovery

Recovery is just as important as the work you do in the swim spa or on the roads. Taking time to stretch and get a massage can help you feel better after a workout and be ready to take on the next training session. Challenger swim spa models feature adjustable massage jets, the Xtreme Therapy Cove, and warm water to improve blood flow, improve mobility, and ease aches and pains.
