Underwater treadmills first came to our attention during the build up to the London 2012 Olympics. British triathlete Alistair Brownlee installed a pool with a treadmill in his back garden to speed up his recovery from a torn Achilles tendon, just months before the Games.
Having access to an exercise pool enabled him to regain his fitness levels quickly – after weeks of being away from running and cycling – to win an Olympic gold medal.
He told The Guardian newspaper: “I spent three weeks in a cast and another week when I couldn't ride a bike. So it was a month without cycling. The pool made a huge difference."
Our Underwater treadmill can make a huge difference to your performance, too. It offers anybody, from any discipline, the opportunity to return to exercise quickly and drastically improve fitness levels. It provides:
