Aston, PA, March 10, 2008 – Multiple Sclerosis is a debilitating autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system. As nerve fiber is destroyed and damaged from the disease, even the most common every day tasks can be a chore. But with regular aquatic therapy, MS sufferers can strengthen weakened muscles and improve stamina and balance.

The unique qualities of water provide exceptional benefits to people with MS, allowing them to move in ways they may not be able to on land. Aquatic exercise improves overall physical function including walking, mobility, flexibility, balance and endurance. Finding a swimming pool that’s convenient, open year-round and at the right temperature for MS therapy can be a challenge though.

The MS Society’s latest partner, Endless Pools, Inc has the answer to this dilemma. The 8’ x 15’, temperature controlled Endless Pool can be installed virtually anywhere indoors or out. Now privacy and convenience can be a part of anyone’s rehabilitation routine. “For years we’ve supported the MS Society through their National publication, so this partnership was the next logical step,” says Mark Langan, Marketing Director for Endless Pools, Inc. “We’re proud to join the movement in fighting MS.”

The Endless Pool features an adjustable current that allows you to swim or exercise in place. The current is broad and deep, and is suitable to every swimming ability and therapy need. You can also set the temperature precisely, based on preferences and needs. “We’re excited to have Endless Pools, Inc. be a part of movement to end MS,” said Joyce Nelson, President and CEO of the National MS Society.

Now through the end of December 2008 visit NationalMSsociety.org and the Movement Marketplace for your chance to win an Endless Pool.

Aston, PA, March 3, 2008– As lot sizes decrease and energy costs rise a new type of swimming pool offers the perfect blend of relaxation, exercise and energy efficiency.

An Endless Pool swim spa allows you to swim for miles without ever leaving home. That’s because you swim in place, against a fully adjustable current, much like a treadmill. Set the pace slow for a beginner or at top speed to challenge competitive swimmers. Because you are swimming in place you don’t need a large space, which also makes them incredibly efficient and easy to maintain. After your swim relax in the jetted spa seats and enjoy your beautifully landscaped garden.

Visit the Hudson Valley Spring Home Show, March 7, 8, 9, 2008 at the Gold’s Gym in Poughkeepsie, to see for yourself. At just 8’ x 15’ the Endless Pool takes up very little space and can be incorporated into your patio remodel, deck or back yard. For year round use the spa can also be installed in a garage or sunroom – the possibilities are endless!

Curious how you can make your pool dream a reality? Swing by booth #130 and bring your bathing suit for an on-site demonstration. Take home a free brochure and take one step closer to the pool you’ve always dreamed of.

Open Water Swimming and Endless Pools Swimming Machines a Perfect Pair

Aston, PA, February 18, 2008– Endless Pools, Inc. and World Triathlon Corporation, owner of the Ironman Triathlon are proud to announce multi-year partnership renewal, making this the seventh year Endless Pools has partnered with IRONMAN.

The Hawaiian Ironman is the pinnacle of Triathlete competitions. Every year more than 50,000 top athletes around the world struggle for one of the 1,500 coveted starting slots at Kona. There, competitors face rough water, strong currents and fluctuating temperatures as they battle the 2.4-mile open water swim. It is a brutal-indeed overwhelming-first leg. And no training tool in the world prepares them better than the Endless Pool.

The Endless Pool’s smooth current challenges even the fastest swimmers, and unlike standard lap pools, forces swimmers to maintain a consistent pace. The underwater mirror provides constant, immediate feedback. Best of all, the Endless Pool can be installed in virtually any home. At 8″ x 15″ it’s smaller and lighter than an SUV, plus its modular design allows components to fit through any doorway and stairway. The convenient at home location saves precious hours every week in commuting time. Released in 2006, Endless Pools newest product the Fastlane, installs in existing pools making training even easier for Triathletes with backyard pools. With over 10,000 pools installed throughout the USA and the world, Endless Pools Inc. is fixture in home fitness and training.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (February 6, 2008) — USA Triathlon (USAT) and Endless Pools, Inc., have reach an agreement to extend their corporate partnership through 2008.

Endless Pools has provided USAT with a Fastlane� swim current generator that is being used by USAT elite athletes and National Team members at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs to aid in their training for ITU events and the upcoming Beijing Olympics.

“We have had great one-on-one technical sessions using the Fastlane while incorporating in-pool video,” said USAT National Team Coach Cliff English. “We had the new ‘eye-on-performance’ video system from the USOC running with the 50-inch flat screen so we could have the athlete stop every minute or so and review the film and then get right back into the ‘Endless Pool’ and work on that particular aspect of the their stroke. We would go back and forth a few times on this with each athlete.”

“Some of the top athletes in the world use our swimming machines for endurance training and stroke analysis. We can’t think of a better organization that will utilize our machines more,” said James Murdock, president of Endless Pools. “We are proud to be a supplier to USAT and wish our National Team luck as they compete in Beijing and around the globe.”
