An American Fiberglass Pool is a convenient, cost effective, and effective way to get that exercise so many of us don’t take the time to get.  American Fiberglass Pools can be used for a round of serious lap swimming, running in place that is easy on the joints, and for performing calisthenics like we used to do back in school so many years ago.  Please take a little time to have a consultation with your Doc before beginning the exercise program.  As far as aerobic exercise is concerned, lap swimming is typically accepted as the best form available.  It is easy and efficient to exercise the heart and little or no stress is placed on your weight bearing joints or back.

According to many experts, the effect of moving your legs and arms while in the water is somewhat similar to exercising with weights.  Further, due to the water buoyancy your body has much less chance of injury during the exercise routine.

It is generally accepted that as you seek flexibility, strengthening, and aerobics, it is much easier to do so in water than on land since the water more effectively lessens the amount of gravity on your body.  It is a compelling way for people with painful joints or weak leg muscles to exercise in water.

An American Fiberglass Pool is an excellent place to exercise.  As always, utilize good judgment when you exercise and make sure to supervise other folks that also exercise in your pool.

Bottom line, health and fitness are important reasons within the long list of great reasons to own a beautiful, affordable, VERY LOW maintenance, American Fiberglass Pool!  How about your feedback on this?  Reply below.

    I have to admit that getting a pool really changed my life. Exercising in the pool vs. on the ground makes a huge difference in how my aching knees feel.
    Since you finished my pool last August I have lost 34 lbs. I attribute it to my pool.
    I was to have knee replacement surgery but I am doing so well my doctor says I don’t need it. Not carrying that extra weight is great! The depth of the Colorado model pool you built is perfect for my exercise needs.
    Thank you!!

    My wife has a bad back & I have a bad hip. Frankly our pool has been a blessing as we can both get around almost normal while in the pool.

    • wayne says:

      Nice to know that the San Antonio model American Fiberglass Pool we built for y’all in 2013 has been such a blessing to your family.

  3. T. and G. Jones says:

    We truly enjoy the pool y’all built for us last spring.

    Thanks for all the great work and thanks for all your great troops. We really enjoyed their work ethic, their sense of humor, and their company.

    • wayne says:

      Happy to hear from you Trish and Gene. Thanks for all the kind words about our workers. I will pass your compliments along to them.

    We have just moved to Houston from Colorado
    and owned a fiberglass pool there for 26 yrs.

    Our grand children live in Katy but we live in Fulshear.

    Please call to discuss one of your large pools with us. The Guadalupe at 19×43 is particularly of interest.
    Our home phone number is 281*******.

    Thank you.

    • wayne says:

      We are pleased to report that your Guadalupe was completed in late April and that your family is making lots of wonderful poolside memories that will not be forgotten!

  5. Aaron M. says:

    Great blog! The young and the old alike will benefit from having a pool to exercise in. The smooth surface of a fiberglass pool has got
    to be more comfortable to your feet.

    • wayne says:

      Thank you for the compliments and yes a fiberglass pool will never chew up your feet or scrape your knees. Only a gunite pool will do that!

  6. S.Haleem says:

    We have watched you build a pool for a neighbor.
    Please call us as we have been quite impressed with the way the job has turned out.


    • wayne says:

      We are pleased to report that your Pecos was completed in late April. We wish your family lots of fun, frolic, and wonderful pool side memories.

  7. Len says:

    I grew up with a pool and as I get older I appreciate that I can stay limber by doing various exercises in my pool.

    It is an every day routine for me, rain or shine, cold or hot.
    I have a heat/chill pump on my pool that keeps the pool water comfortable all the time and for pennies an hour.

    • wayne says:

      Thanks for joining us and sharing your pool side routiness! We love heat/chill pumps, especially made by Hayward!

  8. K. Clements says:

    Pools are wonderful for lots of valid reasons!

    I bought an American Pool since the pool surface is smooth and always stays that way.

    My previous pool was a pebble surfaced one. While beautiful, it was much too rough to enjoy.
    My family had to wear swim socks to be in the pool more than 10 minutes.

    We are interested in speaking with you about your model Frio.

    Please contact me @512*******


    • wayne says:

      We are pleased to report that your Frio was completed in the first week of May in spite of the wet weather. We will love to visit and take pics once your new landscaping is all in. Please let us know!

  10. Wade O'Bannon says:

    Thank you for your blog.
    I have a bad back and have been instructed by my doctor to swim every day as my exercise.

    I need to have you contact me for an estimate that will need to include a heater and some type of pool cover.

    713*******. Best to call me in the evening. Thanks.

    • wayne says:

      Hi Wade, we trust that your newly installed San Antonio American Fiberglass Pool is just what the Doc ordered for your bad back. We really enjoyed working with nice folks like y’all.

  11. Simon H. says:

    WE just love the San Marcos pool you built for us about a year ago. We bought it so that I could exercise and loose the 90 lbs. that was required to have my back surgery. THANKS TO GOD I AM ALMOST THERE AS I HAVE LOST 73LBS!!

    The heater you provided allows me to exercise every day, rather economically I might add.

    Anyone that wants to loose weight and feel better I would recommend that they get a pool.

    • wayne says:

      Thanks and congratulations Simon. You are really full of great news and very good opinions. Please keep us up to snuff on your future weight loss progress!

    I have recently moved to the Houston area. I have owned pools my entire adult life. My last 2 pools have been fiberglass including an American Pool[In Slidell, LA]. Please contact me at 504-***-****.

  13. Vincent Irving says:

    My family would love to have a pool.
    All our research indicates that fiberglass pools have lots of advantages over other pool types.
    You are welcome to call at 281******* to set up a meeting.

  14. Dave Thrower says:

    We never knew having a pool was so much fun along with being so healthy at the same time.
    You guys did a great job on our pool you finished last month.
    We are so glad that we got you to put a heater on as we have been enjoying the pool every week end.
    Thanks to all the guys again and God bless!
