6 Pain Caves for Demanding Swimmers
For some, it's a mental space. For these Endless Pool owners, the "pain cave" occupies a physical space too. If you need a place to push yourself to your most demanding workout, on land or in the water, the pain cave is your destination!
Endless Pools are uniquely suited to swim training for a new personal best. With our swim mirrors and the options for underwater video, swimming in place in an Endless Pool lets you get a laser-focus on your technique. You can observe every movement to fine-tune your stroke. With a more efficient swim stroke, you can swim harder for exponential gains.
Ironically, aquatic exercise is used by many for relief from pain. Those suffering from debilitating ailments, such as arthritis or fibromyalgia, can stay active, build muscle, and improve flexibility with aquatic therapy. In the water, they can move in ways that are too painful on dry land.
For healthy competitive athletes, however, the drive to achieve can be done safely. They can gradually push past their previous limits. If that sounds like you, let these pain caves serve as inspiration for your own your personal training space.
