If you’ve made the decision to purchase a hot tub, you’re already one step closer to being more relaxed and less stressed, not to mention healthier.

While the size of your tub is unlikely to affect any health and wellness benefits, buying a spa that’s too small for your needs can have an impact on your enjoyment.

Purchasing a smaller hot tub may be easier on your bank balance, but if it doesn’t meet your needs, it won’t be money well spent. Let’s take a look at the top four reasons to consider a 6-person hot tub.

1. Extra Space

There’s no getting around it — having extra leg room to kick back and relax is always a good thing. This is especially true if you’re above average in height. If you’re more than six feet tall, having a larger hot tub will give you more leg room and room to stretch out. Larger hot tubs are also deeper.

Most two- to four-person hot tubs have a height of 29 to 35 inches while a 6-person hot tub can have a height up to 38.5 inches. And, if you’re tall, that means you are less likely to have to scrunch down to keep your shoulders under the water.

2. Exercise

Your hot tub may be your favorite place to relax after a long day, but it’s also the perfect spot to get in some physical fitness. With a larger spa, you’ll never have to worry about feeling cramped while working out.

If you jog but are tired of having sore muscles and joints from the force of the impact on pavement and trails, you can take your run in your spa.

Running in place in your spa burns more calories per minute than traditional jogging while also cushioning your joints and muscles from the impact.

Hot tub strengthening and stretching moves are also extremely effective. Whether you’re doing lunges and squats or some stretches to end your workout, the heated water of your spa makes your muscles more pliable, lending you a greater range of motion while exercising in your hot tub.

When done regularly, it can also lead to increased mobility outside the spa.

3. Family Time

If you have a large family, a six-seat hot tub gives you the ability to kick back and relax with the most important people in your life.  A six-seat spa ensures no one is left out.

Not only does it accommodate a family with more than two kids, it’s also great for those times when your parents, children or siblings are visiting. It’s a great way to catch up at the end of a long day or during a holiday or long weekend visit.

4. Parties

Spas aren’t just for families. They’re great for hosting your friends as well. And nothing says social time quite like a six-person hot tub.

Whether you host a couples’ night, a girls’ night or a guys’ get together, a six-seat unit will serve you well. It’s also ideal for Super Bowl parties — what better way to relax than during half time? — summer evenings with friends or even a girls’ spa day.

The entertaining possibilities are endless.
