World Traveling ThermoSpaSep 14
Why we love our ThermoSpa…
My husband and I both serve our country proudly as members of the United States army. We are currently stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina for those of you that don’t know, this is the home of the Army’s airborne. Bring in the military is one thing being a paratrooper is another. We have enjoyed the experiences both have afforded us but…
Falling from the sky with all your combat equipment tied to you isn’t as glamorous as it appears in the movies nor is it particularly easy on the human body, and neither of us are spring chickens. (I am 37 and John is 42) After our jumps we look forward to a nice soak where we can relax, talk about our day and
get the soreness out.
Not only do paratroopers fall from the sky they are also expect to be able to move on the ground once they land. Training consists of regular road marches. On a given day one can walk anywhere from 2 to 12 miles carrying our equipment, water, and assigned weapons. We also have physical training daily at 0630 in the morning which consists of everything from running, push ups, drown proofing to obstacle courses. That being said its not so hard to imagine why we love our ThermoSpa so much.
The purchase of our ThermoSpa has been a worthwhile investment in our health to say the least. Our ThermoSpa has significantly contributed to our ability to face another day. Not only does it ease our physical aches and pains it also helps relieve the mental stresses one experiences as a member of the military everything from being away from family members on deployments to field training exercises to the day-to-day activities.
As one might imagine our days are pretty full and time is a luxury. Having been a pool owner in the past, I love our ThermoSpa because it is low maintenance and relatively inexpensive to operate.
Furthermore, we can use it all year round and take it with us when we move. In fact, we are due to move to Germany shortly where the weight of household items is restricted. That being said we are scheduling a garage sale to rid ourselves of some of our worldly possessions so our ThermoSpa can accompany us because leaving it behind is not an option.
