THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO FINDING THE BEST MALIBU POOL REMODELING COMPANY

THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO FINDING THE BEST MALIBU POOL REMODELING COMPANY

Malibu, a city of celebrities and beaches in the mighty state of California. Located on the western coast of America, it is a beautiful landscape overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

From Tom Hanks to Miley Cyrus, the legendary Jack Nicholson to Ellen DeGeneres, they all have a big mansion or a villa in Malibu.

You may or not possess a house as extravagant, but you can definitely dream of a pool that has the potential to make even the most flamboyant of celebrities feel envious.

So yes, you have two options. Either get a new pool or renovate the existing one.

Rest assured, we will guide you in understanding how to choose a Malibu pool remodeling Company, and how to decide if your pool needs renovation at all.

Let’s Start, shall we?

Signs That Your Pool Could Use Some Remodeling

Your Pool Looks Dirty and Smells Funny

Clogged filters will have to take responsibility here. Every pool has one. It’s one of those essential things that gets the hygiene of your pool going.

That, or perhaps the erosion of floor tiles has rendered them toothless to carry any friction. This usually happens when mold or slime has started to grow on the floor of your pool.

These are telltale signs that your pool could use some quality workmanship.

You Notice That Water Level isn’t Consistent Anymore

This phenomenon suggests an underlying cause that may or may not be rectified using a short term fix.

Usually, a fault in the plumbing can lead to unnecessary leakages. Another factor which may contribute to inconsistent water levels, is a fracture in the flooring.

May be the plaster has worn off, or the tiles have eroded, providing a perfect pathway for the water in the pool to seep into the ground.

If you observe such behavior in your pool, trust your instincts and get a professional pool remodeling company to do the job for you.

When you Realize That The Fun Place, The Pool Area, Becomes a Bit too Drab for Liking

It’s human nature to get bored after a while. Has the ever so fun and adventurous pool become blatantly boring?

Do you see yourself finding excuses to not spend time near the pool for some reason or the other?

You guessed it, the once sickeningly enjoyable activity has become so monotonous that no one wants to do anything near a pool.

Don’t Fret, We Have Some Great Ideas to Guide You

Change the Ambience

Sometimes the simplest answer is the most overlooked.

It couldn’t be truer for the swimming pool.

Try installing a night light near the pool area. Not just any lights, LED lights. We suggest that you experiment with the interior lighting of the pool.

Some colorful LEDs installed near the floor, or a funky disco light to get the fun times rolling, try whatever gets you grooving.

Repair as Necessity Arises

Various plumbing equipment like pumps, pipes and gaskets can reach their service life eventually.

Similarly, if it’s been years since you made your pool, you should consider replacing old tiles of the floor. This change would not only be functional, but fashionable as well.

Try Experimenting With The Statics and The Dynamics Around Your Pool

Did you always want a slide beside your pool? Or was that high ramp on your priority list, which ultimately was washed away in winds of caution?

If it’s safe, and drastically changes the pool area mood, we say why not get it?

Or, what if we told you that you could restructure your old pool? You could consider expanding or contracting it. Even a change of shape would add to the diversity.

The possibilities are endless. Let your imagination run a little wild and see what happens!

But How Do you Decide Which Company to Hire for Remodeling?

It’s simple, Track Their History!

In this day and age of transparency, there is barely any information that cannot be accessed.

Use internet as a powerful tool and search the track records of these companies, for the projects undertaken and their outcomes. Trust us, this little foresight on your end will probably save you from the trouble of being duped.

After all, your money is best spent on investments which bring value, not on fraudulent contractors.

Ask Around for Feedback from Past Customers

Don’t be shy. It’s okay to not know something than to pretend to know it and incur a loss.

Ask on Quora, or use Twitter, post on Facebook or talk directly to swimming pool owners, it doesn’t matter as long as you get the relevant information.

This Will Ensure Two Things

You will know about the best companies to choose from by analysing the real world data, and you will learn how to negotiate with the servicemen for the best deals and work.

Look for Certification from Concerned Authorities

Certificates from bodies like the The Association of Pool and Spa professionals of America, which certify the renovation companies, and CPO, which certify service professionals, are a must while deciding the contractors.

This enables you to reach out to them for claims and disputes. But that’s just the most rare of cases. Usually, when you know your contractor has these certificates, you can breathe easy and know that they will do their job well.

We are Here, Always!

We know that something as simple as pool renovation may see daunting, but don’t be discouraged. We are there to guide you through every step of the way.

By following our suggestions, you can evade shady Malibu pool remodeling companies that just want to extract maximum money from you for the least amount of work. Why give them this chance? Don’t we all work hard for every dime?

It should come as no surprise that there are more important things in life to take care of than a swimming pool.

So, just give us a call, we will take it from there.

5 EXERCISES WOMEN OVER 50 NEED TO BE DOING RIGHT NOW

5 EXERCISES WOMEN OVER 50 NEED TO BE DOING RIGHT NOW

5 EXERCISES WOMEN OVER 50 NEED TO BE DOING RIGHT NOW

Attention: women over 50!  If you are unsure about exercises you should be doing to lose weight and improve your health and fitness, this post is for you.

TRAINING SMARTER AS WE AGE

As we age we need to focus on training smarter and more efficiently, not slowing down. As a personal trainer Battersea who works with women over 50, I often hear that they are being told to slow down and not push harder – nothing could be further from the truth.

Now is the time to pump up the intensity, but in a controlled and targeted manner so you maximise the benefits as they relate to your specific needs.

The following is a series of exercise movements and types of movements that will help you get the most out of your training, as well as provide specific benefits that your age group needs – as always if you have any questions please drop me a line to james@fittolast.co.uk .

1. KETTLEBELL SWINGS

The kettlebell swing (see video for an excellent demonstration from ninja clients Mel and Sylvia) uses your hips, gluteus, and core in an explosive manner that will help improve joint mobility, strength and cardiovascular fitness.

Make sure you choose a weight that will challenge you, but not at the expense of compromising correct form. Have a look at the video and if you have any questions drop me a line to james@fittolast.co.uk .

2. MULTIPLE-JOINT COMPOUND MOVEMENTS (I.E. DEADLIFTS)

As women age they are at greater risk off osteoporosis. A great way to help mitigate this risk is by completing resistance exercises that use more than one joint at a time (aka compound movements). In this example Bernadette is completing a fantastic deadlift with 2/3 of her own body weight.

Using multiple joints means that you apply tension at both ends of a bone. This forces the bone to bend, resulting in increased bone regeneration.

As well, you are also helping your body build lean muscle mass. By building more lean muscle mass you will burn more calories at rest, which means that you will more effectively control your weight as you get older.

3. VIGOROUS, HIGH INTENSITY EXERCISE (I.E. BATTLE ROPES)

Personal trainer Battersea

The heart is a muscle. Muscles, when tested and pushed, become stronger by adapting to the stimulus they are presented with. Keeping your heart in shape is of paramount importance, especially as we age. By including short blasts of vigorous activity in your workouts, you will keep your cardio-vascular system topped up, and your body will thank you for it.

Here Sylvia is pushing through a short interval of battle ropes, challenging her body overall to improve her cardiovascular fitness.

4. LIFTS OVERHEAD (I.E. SINGLE ARM-OVERHEAD PRESS)

Lifts overhead force your heart to work harder due to Peripheral Heart Action (when you hold resistance overhead I.e. weights, your heart works harder to pump more blood). Additionally, overhead movements like the one Bernadette is doing here use your whole body to lift a weight, meaning you will burn lots of calories in the process.

Overhead lifts like the overhead snatch are a great way to get your whole body involved. The more if your body you use, the more calories you will burn.

5. MOVEMENTS THROUGH DIFFERENT PLANES OF MOTION (I.E. WEIGHTED ICE SKATER WITH AN OVERHEAD PRESS)

It would be so much easier if we all just moved forward and backwards only…but we don’t.

To protect your body for those constant situations when you need to swerve (I.e. when that person on their phone doesn’t see you walking towards them, and you have to suddenly move out of the way to avoid a head-on collision), move in different planes of motion when you exercise.

THREE PLANES OF MOVEMENT 

Sagittal – forward backward movement

Frontal – lateral movement (side to side)

Transverse – rotational movement

Try and include movements in all three planes of movement in your training routines – life isn’t all forward and backward, and neither should your training.

All of these exercises are challenging and will definitely get you out of breath. But if you want to keep your body changing and remain resilient as you get older, the benefits of these exercises will vastly outweigh the challenge to complete them.
