Professional Cyclists Put Hot Tubs To The Test A trio of professional Spanish cyclists were recently interviewed by Europe’s largest hot tub distributor Superior Wellness, and each praised the use of hot tubs after exercise. Ultra-cycling champion Ziortza Villa, semi-professional cyclist Adrian Garcia and ex professional cyclist Alvaro Robredo visited the Reyman Electrobombas showroom in Gordexola, Spain to put hot tubs to the test. The session was led by Ziortza who is a physiotherapist by profession. She understands that muscle recovery and optimal muscle maintenance is vital to get riders back on the bike to compete. The balance between body and mind is fundamental for wellbeing and hydrotherapy provides this – so combining cycling and hot tubs makes perfect sense. The three cyclists took a dip in a Platinum Spas Arizona which has 43 jets and provides massage options for the entire body. Ziortza talked about the benefits of a hydrotherapy massage and she said: “The key parts of the body to work on are the feet and legs as they are exposed to muscular overload. The hot tub really helps to relieve and strengthen the muscle tone

and will also prevent overloads and injuries.” Adrian added: “Massage is not only necessary for competition but also essential if you want to perform on a daily basis and avoid injuries. Being in the warm water was the perfect muscle recovery therapy. I felt recharged and renewed.” After seven seasons in professional cycling Alvaro knows the importance of recovery and how massage can aid this. “When you first start in sport you don’t realise the benefits that hydrotherapy can bring. You then realise you should have started much earlier. There are differences with the manual massage, there is physical friction because it squeezes you and you suffer a little bit and I think that with water you get a more relaxing point.” Superior Wellness 01246 559071
