Exercise in chest-deep water reduces body weight by 80 percent, freeing you from the compressive, pain-causing forces of gravity. Movement in deep water diminishes joint compression entirely.
Pools – Canyon Ranch has four swimming pools:
- Indoor Pool: located in the Aquatic Center; heated to a comfortable 90˚F.
- Flagstone Pool: next to the Double U Café.
- L-Pool: located near the tennis courts. Features two shaded underwater treadmills.
- T-Pool: off Canyon Ranch Drive, near the Life Enhancement Center®.
The heated Indoor Pool is not recommended for extended lap swimming or intense cardiovascular activities. Group classes are held year round in the Indoor Pool and T-Pool, which both provide showers and changing rooms. Pool classes are listed in This Week at Canyon Ranch and on the Spa Activity Boards. Water shoes are suggested for classes. Please note that there is no lifeguard on duty.
