Endless Pool All the benefits of traditional swimming pools in a fraction of the space
Biggest Loser TV show teams up with Endless Pools to help contestants lose weight

Contestants on the latest Biggest Loser are working out with a Dual Propulsion Endless Pool which features two adjustable current swim lanes and two underwater treadmills.
The Endless Pools provides an ideal exercise environment for contestants as water's buoyancy allows them to train without the pounding of land based exercise. With some contestants over 500 pounds, being able to perform a high intensity workout in a weight-free environment allows them to burn calories while reducing the risks of injury.
Having a variable speed underwater treadmill with a resistance current enables the contestants to vary the intensity of their workout and monitor their progress day-by-day. As their aerobic capacity increases they can increase the speed of the treadmill, the speed of the current, or both.
Swimming comes close to being the perfect exercise. It uses all of the muscle groups repetitively and rhythmically, building strength and endurance without wear and tear. Swimming exercises your heart, improves circulation, tones muscles and helps shed pounds. By alternating between walking, running and swimming in the Endless Pool, contestants are able to get a full body workout that's particularly useful for them in the early stages of their weight loss when land based exercise can be difficult.
Many of the couples found the pool so enjoyable that they often use it during their free time to further their weight loss and for recovery after a grueling gym workout.
Since 1988 the Endless Pool has helped thousands of people lose weight and stay fit by making regular swimming and aquatic exercise a part of their daily routine.
