Endless Pools founder
THE INSPIRATION for the Endless Pool came more than a half-century ago in Arizona, when my father swam in place in the irrigation canals that brought precious Colorado river water south to Phoenix. He and I talked for years about building a machine to swim at home–a machine that would simulate open-water swimming in a small space. Somehow other ideas, other machines filled our time.
I built the first Endless Pool on the pool deck at Columbia University in the summer of 1988. There was so much we didn't know at the time. The refinements in design that would allow us to ship our system all over the world came later.
What I remember most with that first prototype was the wonder and amazement of swimmers who realized that you really can swim in place.
The benefits for coaches and swimmers were able to gain were clear even then. The therapeutic benefits of the pool were also obvious. My first customer explained to me the benefits of water-based exercises for people with MS. His neighbor purchased our 4th pool for her rheumatoid arthritis.
More than 20,000 pools later, the therapeutic benefits of swimming enjoyed by our customers are still clear. My father's dream of a swim-at-home swimming machine continues to be realized: Exercise at home in a compact, personal pool heated to the temperature you select, flexible enough to fit just about anywhere. Any one of our Endless Pools will provide you this comfort, convenience, and many years of health and fitness.
