HYDROWORX®2000™ Aquatic Therapy Pool

The Summit Club, at Summit Place Senior Campus, is proud to offer our members the revolutionary HydroWorx® 2000™ aquatic therapy pool as an alternative to traditional exercise methods. Each workout is personally supervised by one of our trained aquatic therapy instructors and you are never left unattended while in the pool.

Exercise in this revolutionary aquatic therapy pool can offer the benefits of:
  • Increased muscle tone
  • Improved range of motion
  • Improved circulation
  • Enhanced balance and coordination
  • Decreased level of pain
  • Reduced stress
The secrets are bouyancy and heat:

When exercising on land, gravity creates stress on muscles, bones and joints. Movement can sometimes be difficult, painful and restricted.

When one exercises in water, there is decreased strain on our bodies. Water’s natural buoyancy provides assistance in a truly unique manner. It supplies resistance, supports the body and reduces joint stress. This approach is a quantum leap forward in rehabilitation.

You don’t need to know how to swim to enjoy the HydroWorx® 2000™. There are no ladders or stairs to navigate. The adjustable floor rises to the pool deck, providing easy access for all. You simply stand in the middle of the floor and are lowered to the proper level.

The HydroWorx® 2000™ aquatic therapy pool soothes your body in comfortable 94 degree water, offering relief to joints and muscles. While you exercise, the buoyancy and warmth relieve the stress and strain on your body.
