Exercising regularly as you age, especially in your 70s and beyond, can help you maintain and improve your overall health and quality of life. And one way to stay active is exercising in the water.

With an at-home aquatic therapy pool, one Connecticut couple has transformed their fitness routine.

The H2X Therapool D has more than 50 jets, including three high-performance flow stream swim jets. Ideal for resistance training, aquatic exercise, and relaxation, the Therapool D has become a central element in this active couple's life.

In this special Facebook Live video, we go on location as Connie and Gary share how they use the H2X Therapool D and what benefits they have seen.

Stability and balance: Water-based exercises offer unique benefits compared to land-based workouts. The buoyancy of the water reduces the impact on joints, making it easier to perform various exercises with less strain on the body. It can also be a way to work on stability and balance, which are essential for preventing injuries and falls as they grow older. It's not just about cardio and strength training; the Therapool D has enabled them to address all aspects of their fitness.

Cross training: The Therapool D doesn't replace their land-based fitness activities; it complements them. Gary teaches Tai Chi and spends a lot of time at the YMCA. Connie enjoys lifting weights. They use the swim spa as a versatile training tool, incorporating swim workouts and relaxation. into their routine.

Pain relief: The aches and stiffness that come with aging can be challenging to manage. However, the buoyant environment of the swim spa offers a therapeutic escape. The warm water and jet massage provide natural pain relief and relaxation, allowing this couple to unwind after a tough workout or a long day.

"I really need this to keep my body feeling good," Connie says.
