Pool Designs Perfect for New Year’s Resolutions

The beginning of a New Year often means setting goals to improve people’s finances, health, or wellbeing. According to a recent YouGov survey, these are the most common New Year’s resolutions among US adults, with about 31% of those polled saying they intended to resolve to make positive changes in their lives.

Did you make goals for the New Year? Have you been considering contacting pool builders about transforming your backyard into an oasis? Here are a few designs and additional features perfect for achieving your goals for 2021, whether you want to exercise more or practice self-care.

Lap Pool

Did you resolve to become more active in the New Year? Then a long and lean lap pool is an excellent solution. Plus, swimming laps is considered a vigorous-intensity exercise, and if you do them for a 75-minutes a week, you will meet the American Heart Association’s exercise recommendations. Add in some weighted water aerobics two days per week to meet the minimum recommended frequency of muscle-strengthening activities.

Freeform Pools

Designed with organic shapes that blend in with their natural surroundings, freeform pools are a perfect addition to your backyard. Integrating a waterfall with the pool also adds the peaceful sounds of water, ideal for creating serenity, and offering an area to practice meditation while being outdoors. Many scientific benefits, including boosting your energy and reducing stress, have been associated with being outside. 

Add a Baja Shelf or Beach Entry

Baja shelves can be added to various pool designs and are perfect for lounging in the water without being fully submerged. These are ideal for practicing self-care as they allow you to relax outdoors with an engaging read and your choice of chilled beverage. An alternative pool addition, offering the same type of relaxed ambiance, is a zero or beach entry. This type of access replaces the traditional pool steps.
