Workout Station Makes Splash at Spas

At the Canyon Ranch Health Resort in Tucson, AZ, guests find healing in the water. The resort's 11,000-square-foot aquatic center features three Watsu pools, a cross-training pool with conditioning equipment, two aquatic therapy pools and a whirlpool. The Aquatrend Water Workout Station, manufactured by Tequesta, FL-based Aquatic Trends, is one aquatic device that is making a big splash with guests.

“Water is the wave of the future,” says Karma Kientzler, an aquatic therapy expert and outside consultant for Canyon Ranch. “People are using their bones and joints to such excess that water will become the means for most people to stay healthy. Likewise, the Aquatrend Water Workout Station is a means to quick, safe rehabilitation and relaxation for many of our patrons.” Aquatrend, a scientifically designed piece of stainless steel equipment, was installed at Canyon Ranch about 10 years ago to help take the work out of workouts. “It makes working out a pleasurable experience, especially for those suffering from arthritis, knee and hip replacement or sports injury recovery,” says Kientzler. “For those already fit but who enjoy the benefits of working out in water, the Aquatrend simply provides a more efficient and safer way to exercise.”

The water workout station provides 10 body sculpting exercises; a cardio circuit, which provides 13 exercises; and the power circuit, which incorporates aerobic and muscular conditioning.
