AWARD LEISURE NEWS
Besides the wellness benefits you receive from being immersed in hot water; a swim spa provides other added benefits. Swim spas allow you to strengthen muscle, improve cardiovascular health, lose weight, enjoy a massage, sleep better and spend quality time with family and friends - all in the privacy of your own home! Read below the key benefits of owning a swim spa.
Swim spas are multipurpose and can be used by all ages and fitness abilities. Most of our swim spas include free exercise equipment so not only can you swim, but you can also curl, kick, row, jog, stretch, run or walk. Unlike exercising out of water, swim spas provide resistance, which strengthens muscles and boosts cardio intensity.
Swim spas are an excellent solution for those who struggle with mobility issues as the water supports your weight, making workouts easier on joints and reducing the chance for an injury. Swim spas can provide symptom relief for conditions like arthritis and fibromyalgia.
Exercise, combined with a balanced diet, is crucial for anyone looking to lose weight and maintain good physical and mental health. For many, the solution is running, cycling, going to the gym, etc. But for some, a lack of confidence may hold them back. Swim spas allow you to exercise in the privacy of your own home and achieve your weight loss goals.
Ease Muscle Tension & Joint Stiffness
Swim spas are versatile - they are made for exercising with the additional benefit of seating with jets, so you can sit back and relax, just like a hot tub. Our swim spas are designed to give you a targeted massage to ease muscle tension and improve joint stiffness after your workout.
Boost Your Mood
As you exercise, endorphins are released - a feel good chemical that has been proven to counteract stress and its negative impact on your body.
When you exercise in a swim spa, your body temperature slowly rises. When you get out of the spa, the cooling process begins. The drop in body temperature causes the brain to release melatonin, the sleep hormone, which helps you to feel relaxed and ready for bed.
A swim spa is a great resource for bringing family and friends together. You can enjoy quality family time all-year round, no matter whether it’s sunny or cold outside.
BHT Swim Spas
Ultimately, owning a swim spa can help you lead a healthier and happier lifestyle. Our BHT Swim Spa range provides for all. Whether you need a rigorous fitness routine, or a place to spend quality time with family, we’re sure we have the swim spa model for you.
Choose from our single chamber swim spas, or dual temperature swim spa & hot tub combination units. The temperature of the swim spa and hot tub can be adjusted independently so that you can exercise in cooler water and enjoy a massage in warmer water.
You can control the counter current speed with our best-selling turbine model, with up to 8 different speed settings enabling you to personalise your swim to suit your ability. This, combined with powerful levitator technology that enables your body to stay afloat when swimming, offers the ultimate swim experience.
The British Hot Tubs™ range is beautifully designed and every model is loaded with the most innovative features in the industry. Make 2021 the year you commit to great times with family and friends in your garden! Here are our recent hot tub installations.

Get in touch today and our friendly team at Award Leisure will help you find your dream hot tub!
A hot tub is always the perfect excuse to unwind with your loved one. When the jets turn on, stress turns off, and romance arises when we take a break from distractions and relax together. With valentine’s day around the corner and nowhere to go, why not plan a date night in your hot tub? We’ve put together some ideas to create the perfect setting for a steamy date night in your spa!
It doesn’t matter whether you’re newlywed or been married for 20 years, the important thing is that you both reserve some time together to enjoy your date night with zero distractions. Be romantic, silly or playful and write a card to invite your loved one and hopefully get a RSVP!
Make the most of your hot tub lighting settings. British Hot Tubs come standard with Zen Zone Lighting which has individual, colour changing and flashing options - we recommend setting the colour to red or pink. These colours are relaxing and known to create the romantic mood. Consider adding twinkling candles, lanterns and/or fairy lights to make the environment even more beautiful.
Champagne and cocktails are great hot-tubbing drinks. And make sure to stock up on bottles of water to prevent dehydration. Cold snacks are very refreshing as well, especially exotic fruits. Chocolate-covered strawberries are a common valentine’s day treat, and they’re two of the world’s most famous aphrodisiacs.
A popular upgrade option on most of our British Hot Tubs is the Lit Waterfall Table. This must-have accessory keeps your drinks, snacks and games close whilst you enjoy your hot tub. This beautiful table connects with a twist into the footwell of most British Hot Tubs. Please note, you must have the connection in the footwell of your spa to attach this table. If you do not have the connection, we recommend setting up a bar table nearby so you can keep your refreshments within easy reaching distance.
Music is the perfect way to enhance the mood, why not create a romantic playlist for the occasion? Pick music that your partner enjoys, aim to please in this case. British Hot Tubs come standard with Bluetooth Surround Sound, so you’re all set. If you do not have a music feature on your hot tub, we recommend purchasing a waterproof speaker that you can setup nearby.
Award Leisure have an exclusive range of SpaMate Aromatherapy Fragrances which are enriched with essential oils and emollients that moisturise your skin and promote your sense of wellbeing. Simply add the Aromatherapy to your Aromatherapy Injector (or directly into the water) then sit back, relax, and enjoy the sensual aromas. We recommend Kiwi & Passion Fruit for a sweet, romantic fragrance that will enliven your senses and leave you feeling joyful yet relaxed.
Sit back, relax, and let the hot tub do the hard work for you. There’s no need to splash out on a spa day or hire a trained masseuse when you have a hot tub sitting outside! The warm water and hydrotherapy massage work together to relieve anxiety and relax tense muscles.
Add Some Privacy
Enclosures allow you to enjoy your hot tub all year round, no matter the weather, while keeping out of sight of nosy neighbours! The Mount Alta Gazebo creates the perfect hot tub enclosure. You can add a touch of privacy with louvres or curtains, entertain guests with an optional bar and stool kit, and enjoy romantic starry nights with a skylight.
Splash Out on New Robes
After you get out of the hot tub feeling refreshed, what better feeling than to slip into a new, fluffy robe to keep you warm whilst you walk back into the house and continue the fun evening!

Saunas have been paramount in Finish culture for thousands of years and it isn’t difficult to see why - research has shown a saunas’ dry heat has profound effects on overall health, wellness and performance. Here are the top 5 benefits of sauna use:
Ease Aches and Pains
Heat from the sauna increases blood circulation and carries oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, which relieves muscle tension and improves joint stiffness. Consequently, saunas may help those with chronic pain and arthritis.
Boost Your Mood
Relaxing in a sauna helps your body to release endorphins, a feel-good chemical that has been proven to counteract stress and its negative impact on your body.
Sauna use can encourage a deeper, more relaxed sleep. After you visit a sauna, your body will cool down rapidly. This cool down process signals to your brain that it’s time to start producing melatonin - the sleep hormone.
As you sweat, your blood flow and circulation increase. At the same time, your pores open up and sweat flushes out bacteria that was trapped in them, resulting in less clogged pores, smoother skin and a healthier complexion.
Bring the Family Together
Nowadays, we spend more and more time in front of screens and less and less time talking to each other. There is no better place than a sauna to relax and reconnect with family members after a busy week.
Despite the multitude of benefits, saunas may not be appropriate for everyone. You should seek medical advice before using a sauna, particularly if you are pregnant or have health conditions. Here are some other general precautions:
• Do not drink alcohol before, during or after sauna use.
• Stay in no more than 20 minutes.
• Make sure to cool down gradually afterwards.
• Drink plenty of cool water before and after each sauna session.
• Do not use a sauna if you are ill.

These premium cabins are built in Scandinavia with thick and durable timber meaning whatever you decide to use them for, they're built to last!

See below Award Leisure’s 5 best uses for a log cabin – staying at home just got better!
For most of the UK, working from home is here to stay. However, many people have struggled to find an adequate spot in their home where they can get on with work undisturbed. It’s not difficult to see the advantages of setting up a garden office as we enter our second national lockdown - an idyllic commute, a distinct separation between work and home life, and a way to add value to your property. With amazing insulation and tonnes of space, a log cabin may be the answer to all of your telecommuting problems! For the perfect garden office, we recommend the Brookhaven Cabin.
Establishing a workout routine and making time for self-care is more important than ever. Regular exercise not only keeps you physically healthy but also improves your mental health by releasing endorphins, a powerful chemical in your brain that triggers a positive feeling in the body. With the gyms being closed, the sofa is calling and the temptation to let fitness slide during lockdown is real… unless you can bring the gym to you! A log cabin is the perfect way to keep your equipment safe and transform your garden space into a functional place to take care of your physical and mental health. A home gym is also a great way to add value to your property. We recommend the Hamptons Cabin for the idyllic home gym.
Having a pub at the bottom of the garden is everyone’s dream, especially during lockdown. Many of us feel like we are existing rather than living at the moment and us brits are missing going to the local pub at the weekend to unwind with family and friends. Don’t miss out and create your own pub in the garden at home! Transform your unused garden space into an amazing home bar where you can make treasured memories for years to come. The Michigan Cabin would make the perfect garden pub.
Every child dreams of having their very own garden playhouse to live out their adventures! However, a playhouse is not an easy thing to build for your little one, make it that much easier with our easy to assemble log cabins. You’ll have a fun family project on your hands, and it will surely make your children happy for years to come. During these times, it’s easy for children to become bored and restless with new restrictions, a playhouse may be the answer to your prayers to get your child off their iPad and outside in the fresh air. For the perfect garden playhouse, we recommend the Witchita Cabin.
Hot Tub Cabin
Our log cabins create the perfect hot tub enclosure and provide the benefits of a private retreat, protection from the outdoor elements, and a stunning addition to any garden. Enclosures allow you to enjoy your hot tub all year round, no matter the weather, while keeping out of sight of neighbours. Spend time with your loved ones whilst enjoying the benefits of hydrotherapy with an amazing British Hot Tub. The Georgia Cabin makes the complete hot tub enclosure!
Take the time this lockdown to really transform your outdoor space. With Award Leisure’s log cabin range, you can expect a truly luxurious product with unrivalled service from our friendly team. Browse our full log cabin range by clicking here!
