Paradise Wins Cutting-Edge Aquatic Fitness App Award

Ability Fix is our unique mobile app for anyone wanting to improve their fitness in the water regardless of their current physical ability level. Users are guided through easy-to-understand aquatic exercises designed to increase strength, flexibility, balance, and cardio.

 

Exercises are categorized by a person’s ability level or impairments, whether a person is a senior with limited mobility or an athlete who wants a high-intensity water aerobics workout. App users can enjoy the benefits of aquatic fitness in any body of water by casting or streaming to any device, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, smart TVs, and Bluetooth headphones. 

Award-Winning Best Aquatic Fitness App

This innovative fitness app garnered a Global Health & Fitness Award: Best Aquatic Fitness App Developers 2019 from Global Health and Pharma (GHP). Ability Fix officially launched at the beginning of this year with 50 exercises and three Ai Chi routines.

 

While the app is designed to have a diverse following, GHP noted that it can be used in several ways and may be particularly useful for caregivers and medical professionals to create exercise routines that are tailored to their clients.

 

Customized or Predefined Water Workouts

Much like a music playlist, all of the water exercises are created as individual files and can be played in any order. A physical therapist, for example, can recommend a post-treatment regimen, such as exercises for water aerobics for lighter intensity workouts. The app is also versatile and easy enough for an adult child to help an ailing parent get the exercise they need.

 

One can select a predefined workout or customize their own routine based on their criteria. Hop in the pool and listen to the entire workout through speakers or waterproof headphones, similar to being taught water aerobics classes by an in-person professional aquatics instructor.

Ability Fix Offers Five Levels to Suit Different Needs

If high-impact, land-based activities aren’t working for someone at the moment because of injury, limited range of motion, or obesity, aquatic exercise may be extremely efficient and effective. Ability Fix offers five distinct levels of workouts and exercises to meet specific ability levels.

 

The app may be a good fit for someone who doesn’t benefit from aquatic fitness classes, which are often designed to serve an “average person,” so some may find that type of class too easy, too hard, or not appropriate for their mobility needs.

 

Workouts on the app are professionally-created by certified trainers. Water is a forgiving and fun environment for an effective workout. You can also make it as challenging as you’d like.

Drug Free Pain Relief

As featured in Healthy Beginnings Magazine

It’s no secret that some medications can be addictive. With most medications, the body is likely to develop a level of dependence, either becoming habit-forming, or ineffective. While you may already understand the importance of healthy living and exercise to manage pain, what you may not know is how much exercising in water can help you feel better now. Water exercise is an extremely effective natural pain reliever that treats both the entire body and mind, and there are some very specific reasons why it alleviates pain.

Gravity constantly exerts force against your body. When in the water, you alleviate gravitational pressure by 80-90% which releases painful tension throughout the entire body. With less tension, inflammation decreases and joints have the opportunity to replenish synovial fluid with movement.

When you are submerged in water, the equal force of pressure that surrounds your body works much like compression socks to increase venous return. In addition to improving circulation, the hydrostatic pressure dampens painful sensory stimulation to the brain offering even more relief. The natural force also causes you to breathe diaphragmatically, which resets your parasympathetic nervous system and reduces pain signals.

There are many other things that can cause pain, or exacerbate existing injuries such as poor posture, sleeping positions, unsupportive footwear, bad habits and more. Pain can occur due to muscles held in awkward positions and often movement is all that is needed to feel better. When you move your body in water, the low-impact resistance activates the hurting muscles to make them more flexible and mobile, which reduces pain.

Pain is often made worse by how we react to it, and it’s easy to get caught in a cycle of frustration, depression, and stress. When you regularly exercise in water, your body releases endorphins, which not only make you feel happy; they also act as a natural pain killer. The calming, rejuvenating nature of water combines both physical and psychological benefits, providing a unique form of relief that only water exercise can provide.

Something for Everyone

Water has something to offer for everyone regardless of your ability level. At Paradise Salon Spa and Wellness, we offer classes and aquatic equipment that are almost impossible to find outside of clinical settings. Water exercise is fun, refreshing, and also provides unique benefits that you can't experience elsewhere. Our clients regularly tell us how much they have been able to get back to doing the things they love most in life all because of water fitness. The best thing you can do is find out for yourself today. Stop by for a free tour!


Can Water Exercise Increase Bone Density?

As featured in Healthy Beginnings Magazine

 

Strength and resistance training are the most well-known techniques to increase bone mass. The force of your muscles pulling against your bones, along with the weight, or “load,” stimulates bone growth. Most people think of lifting weights as the only right solution; however, studies have shown water exercises were found to be an exceptional tool to accomplish increased bone density.

In the study of fluid dynamics, the drag equation is a formula used to calculate the force of the drag created by an object moving through a fluid. It confirms that the amount of resistance created by velocity increases exponentially. To illustrate how much resistance is generated due to speed, Myth Busters conducted tests firing .50 caliber bullets into water showing that bullets completely disintegrate within 3 feet!

If you gently move a limb through water, you will experience 12% to 14% more resistance than making the same movement in the air. If you double your speed from your initial gentle movement, you’ll experience 4 times the amount of resistance, which means now you are creating a 48% to 56% increase in resistance. Move even faster during your water exercise, and now you’re getting a serious bone-building workout! If that’s not enough add more drag by using aquatic equipment like paddles, handbells, or gloves. Multicomponent exercise routines improve the physical status of frail older adults, prevent disability and other adverse outcomes.2 Water exercise is a multicomponent approach to working out. It is proven to improve bone density, just like lifting weights.

Water exercise may be low-impact, but it’s not less effective. Water’s diverse natural components provide additional benefits. The drag component gives you the ability to instantly modify weight with speed control, unlike picking up a 30lb dumbell. The 360-degree resistance component engages both sides of the muscle for a variety of muscular loads applied on the bone, unlike the one-directional force of gravity. This generates stimuli and promotes an osteogenic response. The hydrostatic pressure component increases blood flow's venous return. This helps lower venous blood pressure, reduces swelling and hardening of muscles, which can be experienced during vein-popping land-based exercise.

With aquatic low-impact exercises, you will be able to strategically keep your body in tip-top condition. Whether you are limited in mobility or are an athlete, we have a workout program that’s perfect for you at Paradise in Carson City Nevada. Call, visit us online or even stop by to learn more about our aquatic fitness classes today!


The Healing Benefits of Hydrostatic Pressure

As featured in Healthy Beginnings Magazine

Have you have ever wondered why you feel so good when you get out of the water? The secret lies in the natural properties that water has and how it affects your body. Water offers many healing benefits that assist with improved health, pain relief, and much more. Buoyancy, temperature, and other properties of water have an impact on you; however, hydrostatic pressure has the most significant effect on your body.

Hydrostatic pressure is the force of water that is exerted on to the immersed body. The pressure that surrounds the body works much like compression socks. Arteries that take oxygen-rich blood to your muscles relax and blood flows freely. The pressure reduces the diameter of distended veins, which increases flow velocity and gives veins a boost pushing blood back to your heart. Compression stockings can keep your legs from getting tired and achy, so imagine what this type of compression can do for your entire body! The natural compression that water provides also reduces painful lactic acid buildup and supports detoxification.

</>p

Hydrostatic pressure provides a natural cardio workout. When you are submerged in water, water's natural pressure applies constant resistance to your chest wall. As you expand and compress your chest muscles, hydrostatic pressure helps you release more air than you usually would upon exhaling, strengthens chest muscles, and increases lung capacity.

Hydrostatic pressure is a powerful, drug-free pain relief tool. Pain is essentially an "alarm" signal that travels from your nerves to your brain. Hydrostatic pressure uniquely turns down these signals dampening sensory input to the brain. The natural force also causes you to breathe diaphragmatically. When you breathe from your diaphragm (also known as "belly breathing"), it resets your parasympathetic nervous system and reduces pain signals providing natural pain relief. People suffering from fibromyalgia, amputation, sciatica, chronic back pain, and any neurological, sensory, or musculoskeletal disorder significantly benefit from the healing benefits of hydrostatic pressure.

Combat Cold Winter Pain with Ai-Chi
Ai Chi is a water exercise and relaxation practice comprised of deep breathing and slow, continuous movements. Originally based on Tai Chi and Qi Gong, Ai Chi has been clinically proven to aid in fatigue, balance, strength, stiffness, and pain.
We heat our pool to a comfortable 92º to help increase circulation and warm sore, stiff muscles.
Call or come by and see for yourself how you can benefit from Ai Chi.

PERSONAL ACTIVITY INTELLIGENCE (PAI) PODCAST

We've started something new this week - podcasting about interesting things in and around Paradise.  I chose to tell you about the new Mio measurement metric - PAI because it's the latest and greatest news here. Click on the link below and a new window will open and play the audio so you can listen to the podcast while still continuing to browse our site. If you prefer to read about the new Mio PAI metric you can read the transcript below.  

Paradise Radio Podcast Episode 1 - PAI 
"Today I wanted to talk to you about the activity trackers made by MIO that we carry here at the Paradise retail store. We’ve carried these trackers in our store for over a year now and have had great feedback on them because not only do they track your steps and heart rate but they can be tracked in the water. No other device does that. 

That's why we recommend them as part of our fitness routine in Starr’s aquatic classes. It helps you see exactly how hard you are working your heart when she's working you through the paces of your high intensity interval training routine. 

Recently, MIO has upgraded their trackers to incorporate something new - the personal activity intelligence or PAI tracking method. You now have the choice of tracking your activity through a series of measurements, which include steps, heart rate and sleep or through a single measurement that combines them all called PAI. 

If tracking a single number that measures all your activity is something you want to incorporate into your life all you need to do is own a MIO tracker and download the MIO PAI app from either the app store on your apple device, or the play store on your android device. Once you have the app, sync it with your MIO tracker every day and work to keep your number at 100 or better. It’s that simple. 

So, what’s the big deal about PAI? Well, it’s all about understanding your heart rate and working out your heart as a muscle to increase your lifespan. PAI measures your body’s response to physical activity by translating your heart rate data and steps into a single, accurate,meaningful metric that provides the guidance and motivation to maintain your optimal health. 

The inventor of the PAI -professor Ulrik Wisloff - is a ph.D in exercise physiology. He’s highly credentialed and has done massive studies to validate the effectiveness of PAI. 

So, why is PAI better than other metrics to measure your fitness? 
First of all, it simple. You’ve got one number to watch that incorporates all your activities. The goal is to keep a minimum score of 100 for maximum health benefits. 

the Second reason is it’s personal. Your PAI is calculated based on the intensity and duration of your activity. You choose whatever activity is right for you. It might be an aqua cardio class with Starr here at paradise or maybe using the pool on your own. Taking the dog for a walk, bicycling, running, or Zumba - you choose the activity and PAI calculates your score for you. 

Thirdly - it’s scientific. MIO’s PAI algorithm is founded on data from the hunt Health study; one of the largest health studies over a 30 year period with 60,000 participants. 

the fourth reason is its meaningful. The most accurate way to determine the health benefits from exercise is to analyze an individuals heart rate data. Other metrics such as steps are an inaccurate way to measure fitness activity, since not all steps are created equal, and not all exercise involves steps. 

lastly, it’s flexible. Since it’s calculated over a rolling 7 day period, it’s adaptable to your busy lifestyle. You can work out more on some days, and less on others and still be able to maintain a desirable PAI score. 

So let’s see how that works. If I walked to work, took the dog for a walk around the golf course and was moderately active during my day at work I could get 10,000 steps in. However this would only translate to a score of 10 PAI. However, if I drove to work, didn’t take the dog for a walk and had a busy day walking around the office I’d only log about 5500 steps. However, with the time i saved not getting the 4500 extra steps I took an hour long cardio class and raised my PAI score to 35. 

So, you see, the PAI score is based on the intensity and duration of your activity. Your goal is to reach and stay above 100. You don’t have to exercise every day because you can make up your lost PAI on other days. By staying above 100 you’ve done enough activity to prevent the onset of cardiovascular disease. It’s clinically proven that on average you will live 10 years longer! 

The PAI is now on all your MIO trackers. All you need to do is download the app and start working to get your score to 100. Unfortunately, the existing trackers won’t show you your score on your wrist just yet. You’ll need to see it on your app. However, Soon, we’ll be carrying their activity tracker the slice, which shows the PAI on the screen and looks much more fashionable than the current MIO lineup."

BLUETOOTH RADIO IN THE SAUNA

It seems like such a small thing, music while your in the sauna. For all the 3 years we've been providing our clients with a Far Infrared Sauna, the stereo has been a lackluster performer. Poor reception that allowed only the strongest of stations to be heard and even those were not clear.  

Well, not any more! We've upgraded that system with a Blaupunkt Bluetooth compatible deck and its gets lot's of radio stations. Now, you can connect your Bluetooth compatible music player, aka. your phone or tablet, and play whatever pleases you. 

To use it, just lower the deck from the ceiling and push the big black knob.  Radio stations can be accessed from the presets along the bottom. To give your device access to the radio you'll need to change the "input" on the stereo and then when you look at your phone's bluetooth devices - choose the radio to play whatever your listening to. 
  
Enjoy the simple pleasures of technology in the sauna at Paradise.

AQUA POOL GYM IS HERE!

For months now me've been working on acquiring exercise equipment for you to use in the pool to help you build muscle as well as get that water aerobic workout. Well, now it's here and installed in our pool. 

We've got 5 pieces of aquatic exercise equipment for you to choose from or use as a circuit. We have two underwater treadmills; two underwater bikes; two underwater trampolines; two arm bikes; and two shoulder machines that double as leg machines as well. Also, new are the Bodyflex paddles for a strong upper body workout. 

All of the equipment can be put into the pool and used during any open swim times and we'll have a circuit set up on Friday afternoons and Saturdays. Aqua circuit classes will be available soon so keep an eye on our schedule for those. 

Let us know how you like it. Looking forward to seeing you use this new equipment to enhance your physical abilities.
