Unique aquatic treadmills offer an intense workout with reduced resistance
April 14, 2016

Hydrotherapy experts HydroCo have adapted their experience from the spa and wellness industry to fitness, introducing a range of new aquatic exercise equipment for fitness centres, wellness and rehabilitation facilties.

HydroCo’s aquatic exercise equipment, the Satellite Drop-In Pool Treadmill and the Free-Standing HydroTread, offer the opportunity to run in water, combining an intense workout with reduced resistance. As such, the aquatic treadmills offer a safe environment suitable not only for the aged, sufferers of back pain or those in rehabilitation after hip or knee replacements but also deliver a unique high intensity workout for those seeking new exercise experiences

HydroCo’s Brian Gay explains “expanding on the HydroCo traditional spa a wellness product offering, we have introduced to our range aquatic treadmills, hammam, steam rooms and custom build saunas.

“We see great opportunity in the ‘Baby Boomer’ era as an aged population requires safe, low impact exercise and nothing can take the place of water exercise to achieve this.”

HydroCo is an Australian hydrotherapy equipment brand with a manufacturing base in Melbourne.

Exporting to over 50 countries over past 15 years, the HydroCo brand has been the choice of some of the world’s most prestigious spas and wellness centres facilities including The Bellagio and The Venetian Hotels in Las Vegas, USA; California’s The Beverly Hills Hotel and famous golf destination Pebble Beach Resort as well as the luxury ocean liner RMS Queen Mary 2.

The company has also won awards as a preferred hydrotherapy equipment supplier by American Spa Magazine over several years.

HydroCo also have an unrivalled reputation for innovation and quality.

As Gay adds “we are currently building several steam and sauna environments for Crown Towers Perth – a 6 star facility that demands only the best.

“We offer clients custom designed product and the sauna we have built for Crown is incredible and like nothing else I have seen previously. We have added shape and features that will create a wow factor when entering the room.”
