What is Better, Synthetic or Wood Hot Tub Cabinets?
It’s been just over one year since my wife and I became a part of Team Jacuzzi and began incorporating hydrotherapy into the training program for the Las Vegas Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon. One year later, we both continue to cross-train by running, lifting weights and chasing around our two young daughters. While we don’t plan on running another marathon or half marathon, we have increased our weekly fitness regimen because our bodies continue to recover faster. We feel that the hydrotherapy benefits of the weekly usage of our Jacuzzi® spa have been a big part of this recovery process.
Aside from the hydrotherapy aspect, I continue to use the spa on a personal/social basis with my two daughters. They love the bubbles, disco style lights, and listening to Katie Perry as they turn my relaxing spa into a rave for 4 and 6 year olds! As the fall weather begins to cool, the more my daughters continue to ask to go “jacuzzing”.
Rajeeyah played 3-card Tiffany and won a camcorder and a camera. Next came 4-card Jonathan, where she (enthusiastically!) won a Jacuzzi J-210™.
Think of the hot tub control panel as the “dashboard” of your hot tub. This is the place where you’ll customize your massage, your temperature, and your hot tub’s filtration cycles. With a good system, you have complete control – you can create your hot tub experience exactly as you like it.
We recommend “wet testing” a hot tub before you buy one, that is, immerse yourself in a working demonstration model! Many Jacuzzi® hot tub dealers have a hot tub on site specifically for this purpose.
Most quality hot tubs have sophisticated digital thermostatic-controlled electronic systems: in other words, high tech systems that keep the water within one degree of the temperature you select. Of course, this control system is important for your comfort. It’s even more crucial for safety—particularly if you have children who will be using the hot tub.
Several months after the TEAM Jacuzzi experience, it has been a great time to circle back and reflect. While I had run several marathons prior to the 2010 Las Vegas race, I had never trained or been associated with a group to share the experience like with TEAM Jacuzzi. The additional motivation was certainly felt as there were tollgates with the video blog and keeping up with the other athletes and their progress drove a bit more training and focus than normal.
For those of you who are familiar with my previous blogs and videos, running has not been a primary exercise and I normally just “bite the bullet” and train a bit for the once-a-year marathon with my longtime friend. The TEAM Jacuzzi experience had me seeing that I can incorporate 10-15 miles a week into my normal exercise routine and have really seen benefits there. I have not entered any more races as it is a moral imperative to only do one per year, but we are looking at the Phoenix Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in January as the next obstacle.
Now’s the season to unpack the scarves, dust off the rake, and think about cool-weather hot tub accessories.
Getting your hot tub ready for the winter months is easy. No special preparation is required for you to enjoy a warm, hydrotherapeutic massage in your backyard at a moment’s notice. But you can use these weeks before the really cold weather sets in to enhance your hot tub with spa accessories.

The fair runs through October 2, 2011
Hot tub prices vary for many reasons. Like all engineered products, they correspond to features, materials used and overall craftsmanship. As with any other purchase, buying a hot tub is about value. What’s important is that you buy a hot tub that meets your personal needs and desires, and one that is well built, reliable, and well equipped for the money you spend. It’s about getting the finest, most enjoyable product relative to your investment.
