The Master Spa blog posted “Facebook Live Recap: Swim Spa Comparison” in which they described one Michael Phelps series swim spa, Momentum Deep and two H2X series swim spas, Trainer 15D and Challenger 15D.
The article said that the Trainer 15D is the most popular model. That makes me happy since we have a Trainer 15 (not the ‘D’ which stands for ‘deep’ though). The regular is 51 inches tall compared to the deep model is 60 inches tall.
I can see that the deeper version would be great for serious swimmers. My wife and I, however, love and prefer the depth of the regular Trainer for two reasons.
For starters, neither of us are very tall. The shallower spa makes it easy for us to get around in the spa. Also, I can easily walk around the swim spa and reach in for cleaning and maintenance purposes. If we had the ‘D’ version I’m afraid that it would be more difficult and would require a step stool. The solution, however, is adding steps or deck area around the spa.
Secondly, we aren’t serious swimmers – we tend to use the rowers, the ‘weights’, the belt for walking (and swimming) and flippers to increase resistance in kicking while sitting – so the extra depth isn’t that important to us. I CAN see how the deeper version would be advantageous to more serious swimmers AND to taller people.
Be sure to read about the Momentum Deep and the Challenger, too. They each have some amazing features! Master Spa truly has a spa for everyone!
We couldn’t love our Master Spa Trainer 15 anymore than we do!
