Wellness Today also offers a one-of-a kind fitness option to the public with The Underwater Treadmill Exercise Center located in Southwest Lubbock at 6202-82nd Street. A total of 10 underwater treadmills are housed in a 90 degree heated pool with a 4-½ foot water depth. The treadmills have the capacity to range in speed from .1 mph to 7.5 mph, thus, allowing for a variety clients’ walking or running abilities. Each underwater treadmill is powered by a hydraulic pump that circulates hydraulic fluid to and from the treadmill. The large digital display panel allows clients to view their speed, time, and distance while exercising on the treadmills. The buoyancy of the water allows clients to exercise freely without the impact on the lower extremity joints and lower back, but provides the intensity of an effective exercise program. A client in chest-deep water is approximately 25% weight bearing but has the resistance of the water to increase the heart rate, to burn calories, and to improve his/her physical well-being.
