SAN DIEGO, March 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Dimension One Spas, the visionary and eco-savvy maker of luxury hot tubs sold worldwide, unveils its Aquatic Fitness System, the world's first underwater gym, at the International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association Conference in San Diego, March 6 through 8.

Dimension One Spas is demonstrating its new "burn, tone and heal" AFS workout program, which was co-developed by the world's leading water fitness expert, Dr. Mary Sanders, Professor, University of Nevada's School of Medicine and Public Health, and Derek Duke Noble, noted author of The Body Noble and celebrity fitness trainer. The AFS underwater gym is being demonstrated at booth # 3454 on IHRSA's trade show floor at the San Diego Convention Center.

D1 Spas' revolutionary AFS is the ultimate hybrid of fitness and hydrotherapy that allows people of all ages and abilities to swim, walk, run, stretch, row, strength train, relax and heal in the comfort and convenience of their own homes. This watery workout is an ideal environment for low impact exercises to tone, shape and enhance flexibility, while the body is suspended in buoyant security. Offering twice the workout in half the time, the AFS is ideal for weekend warriors; hardcore triathaletes; aging boomers; overweight exercisers and athletes needing rehabilitation. D1 offers three models of the AFS -- the AquaFit 16, the AquaPro 19 and the AquaFit 19 Dual Temp -- and their retail price ranges from $29,995 to $44,995. http://www.AquaticFitnessSystems.com

The environmentally-friendly AFS is designed with energy efficient heaters and pumps that result in monthly heating costs averaging just $35. The water is cleaned with ozone and UV light and the exteriors are made of maintenance-free, 100% recycled plastic milk jugs.

The research that Sanders and her team have done with groups of aquatic exercisers over the years underscores the fact that water can be used as a liquid weight machine with unique benefits. "Water's buoyancy reduces impact and supports the body for increased range of motion," explains Sanders. "And the natural resistance of water provides an individualized personal training environment. Water's viscosity or 'thickness' -- being about 800 times greater than air -- makes it an effective exercise environment in which to build muscular endurance. And using resistance tethers, like those featured in the AFS pool, provides additional core stabilization work."

Scientific research has also shown that water workout benefits include cardiovascular health, weight management, sleep enhancement and prenatal health. Water exercise also helps relieve arthritis, diabetes, depression and back pain.

Acclaimed fitness expert Derek Duke Noble will lead aquatic exercise demonstrations during the IHRSA trade show in a water-filled, Aqua Pro(R) 19, D1's largest swim spa. It's a full 10" taller than the other two models, featuring the longest and deepest swimming and exercise area. Noble and a group of fitness models will be demonstrating how to use the various pieces of equipment available with the AFS including: a fitness bar, "D" handles, ankle cuffs and tensor cords to work different muscle groups; adjustable body belt to walk or jog in place; rowing equipment as well as an adjustable water current to create an individualized swim program. The demonstrations will be a "sneak peek" for the Sanders and Noble developed AFS fitness video that will be released later this year.

Noble, who has trained celebrities including Michael J. Fox, Maria Shriver, John McEnroe and John Cusack, is the creator and host of "Urban Fitness TV," a fitness lifestyle television series that aired on the Discovery Channel's FitTV. Noble is also author of The Body Noble, a fitness lifestyle book geared toward working professionals who want to stay fit despite busy schedules that allow limited time for exercise. http://www.bodynoble.com http://www.urbanfitnesstv.com

"When I first saw this amazing piece of equipment," Noble explains, "I knew it was revolutionary! Today's savviest consumers are deciding to invest in their health while they're still healthy to find the smartest ways to stay at the top of their game. This is the kind of effective, cutting-edge piece of equipment that clients expect top-of-the-line trainers to bring to them."

D1's founder, Bob Hallam, who built his 30-year-old company around a theme of innovation and "wellness in your backyard," says the AFS goes beyond a typical swimspa. "This is the first time a spa company has brought together the best-of-the-best to create not only a safe, energy-efficient piece of equipment for underwater workouts, but also the applied science of the world's best minds in water fitness.

"We know our customers," he adds. "Baby boomers are the most health & lifestyle conscious group of people in history. They spend more on working out, plastic surgery, healthcare and vacations than any other generation. And now with options like the AFS and our new workout program, they can achieve wellness efficiently in a personal, underwater home fitness center that's safe and effective!"
