Aly Raisman began taking gymnastics as a young child. Over the course of her distinguished career, she was focused on becoming an elite athlete, representing her country, and winning on the world stage. But she has moved from the podium to a platform where she can encourage people to be their best selves. It’s not about winning medals. It’s about getting active and staying active and taking time for self care.
"I wanted a swim spa from Master Spas because it's important to me to have balance in life. After so many years of gymnastics, I want to work outfor my body and my mind. I love that swimming doesn’t put extra stress on my back, and it makes me feel energized. But recovery is equally as important. It's really crucial for me after a hard workout to go and relax, and the hot tub side of my swim spa fills that need perfectly. I’m able to feel recovered for the next day."
Known for her powerful floor routines, Raisman spent hours each day working out so she could compete at the top level. The demanding sport took a toll on her body, though, and the gold medalist has had to work through back and hip pain.
Now, the Massachusetts native sees exercise as a way to improve her mood, health, and confidence.
"Finding new ways to work out and relax are important to both my mental and physical health. After so many years of pounding in the gym, I enjoy having an exercise option that doesn’t put extra stress on my back and my body."
