Pike Physical Therapy Offers Fresh Aquatic Exercise Options with New Endless Pool
Date:4/25/2013

(PRWEB) April 25, 2013

Riding the momentum of a successful open house to highlight their state-of-the-art aquatic center, Pike Physical Therapy has been hard at work adding new programs for their Endless Pool.

Owner Donald Hubbard wanted to incorporate a pool into the offerings at Pike PT for years, and found the right match with his new custom Endless Pool Dual Propulsion model.

In the short time since the pool has been introduced, Hubbard and his experienced team of therapists have shown the ability to think outside the box and find creative uses for the swimming pool.

The group has used their Endless Pool as a therapy pool and a fitness pool, in addition to the counter current swimming it provides.

“The pool has allowed us to do so much,” said Fitness Manager Rachael Bell. “It’s expanded our physical therapy capabilities and allows patients to recover faster.”

Variety is on the menu, as sessions range from private to group swim lessons, to open exercise and water aerobics classes. In addition, the unique environment of the Endless Pool allows for underwater treadmill walk and run sessions, pool rental for coaches, aquatic personal training, family swim sessions and even children’s pool parties,

Pike PT can host up to 10 children in their beginners swimming classes and Group Fitness Instructor Damien Roche can put up to 8 adults through their paces in his aqua aerobic workouts.

Swim lessons became popular so quickly that Pike was forced to expand their sessions rather than relegate swimmers to a wait list.

Fitness Manager Rachael Bell and Roche’s hybrid version of CrossFit’s tabata, aptly named ‘aquabata,’ offers an intense aquatic exercise option that has become an instant hit.

While the pool allows for concentrated swimming, running and aerobic workouts, it also provides versatility for the rehabilitating and less advanced patient population.

Those who otherwise struggle to exercise on land have found comfort in the buoyancy of water.

“People who have to walk with canes on land are doing jumping jacks and running in the water,” said Bell. “It’s amazing.”

“The aquatic therapy aspect has really expanded our business.”

From how to swim sessions to water aerobics to pool birthday parties, Pike Physical Therapy has kept their Endless Pool filled daily.

Pike PT has quickly proven that water exercise and aquatic therapy are viable alternatives to land-based options. The opportunity to exercise in a unique, fun and useful way in the temperature-controlled pool has been received with excitement from the clinic’s entire base.
