PLUNGE POOLS: Benefits for Rehab and Recovery

Cold Plunge: An athlete’s workout recovery is just as important as the workouts themselves. The low water temperature in a cold plunge helps minimize muscle inflammation, pain, and soreness to quickly facilitate post workout recovery.

Hot Plunge: Used before working out, a hot plunge helps increase blood flow, flexibility and loosens muscles. Increased flexibility leads to less muscle strain and a more productive exercise session.

SwimEx plunge pools are built with solid fiberglass construction and a bottom drain. They are easy to clean and can be customized in both depth and length. These free-standing structures are easily installed above or in-ground. They are ideal for locker rooms, athletic training centers, and fitness facilities.
