Creating a recreation area for your home will allow you to use your pool year-round and enjoy other healthy activities, such as basketball or weight lifting. There are numerous health benefits associated with working out regularly including controlling weight, decreasing the risk for stroke and type 2 diabetes, improving your mood, and promoting better sleep. Swimming is an excellent form of cardiovascular exercise that can be completed daily to achieve these benefits.
Adding a recreation area to a pool enclosure will add variety to your workouts. Due to the high moisture content of the air around an enclosed pool it is a good idea to use a folding glass wall or glass curtain wall to separate the two areas. An interior dividing wall not only provides separation of the areas, but also a clear view from one end of the structure to the other; allowing you to watch your children play in the pool as you workout.
