    Why choose the Aquagym Max™?

    The Aquagym Max™ is the ultimate mid-sized, single-zone swim spa and provides similar features and functionality as our smaller Aquagym™ model, however, the Aquagym Max™ is longer which provides a larger swim zone and it features the famous Vortex™ hydrotherapy lounger.


    Check out the top 6 features of the Vortex Aquagym Max™.

    Seating for up to 4 adults

    The Aquagym Max Pro comfortably seats four adults. The seating arrangements in the Aquagym Max include a hydrotherapy lounger, a neck and shoulder therapy seat and 2 back massage seats that provides a welcome and refreshing space during your hydrotherapy or training sessions.

    Our large, fully featured, single zone swim spa.

    The Aquagym Max™ measures 4.49 by 2.31 metres. It is a true, single-zone, swim spa. Its generous size allows a swim zone and hydrotherapy spa area to share the same space. The Aquagym Max™ is available in either the standard 1.3 depth or the XD (Extra Depth) version which is 1.5 metres deep.

    1 hydrotherapy lounger

    What better way to unwind after a great workout than relaxing in a fully jetted hydrotherapy lounger? A combination of air and hydrotherapy jets ensures your entire body gets a massage, from your shoulders to your feet. This is true relaxation, Aquagym Max™ style.

    1 shoulder and neck therapy seat.

    If you feel stress and tension in your shoulders, you'll love the shoulder and neck therapy seat in the Aquagym Max™. Four massaging jets are embedded within the therapy collar, combine this with the seat jets and you have a sublime hydrotherapy massage that focuses on your problem area. Perfection.

    Back massage seat

    Whether it's lower, middle or upper back the back massage seats in the Aquagym Max™ is designed to reach the entire area. At one time or another, most of us experience discomfort or a tight back, this is where the Aquagym Max™ excels and allows you to just sit back and relax. Proving this swim spa is not just for exercise.

    Cool down seat

    Crafted for elevated seating to provide a cooling effect or for a shallower seat suitable for children.

ClearLift™ offers quick, easy spa access, enhancing your usage and enjoyment. It's available as an optional upgrade.

    Premium SpaNet™ controller (2024 models)

    The SpaNet SV Series controller is designed to maximise energy savings and deliver the lowest possible daily operating cost for your spa using PowerSmart™ technology like Dynamic Thermal Tuning and SmartFiltration™.

    Hydroglow™ backlit laminar jets (Avanté)

    Laminar jets create perfect streams of backlit water giving a gentle visual display. The jets operate independently of the hydrotherapy jets, so they can be turn your spa into an impressive light display in your backyard.

    Tranquil water feature

    There is nothing more relaxing than the sound of running water. Add a touch of light and you have created the perfect sanctuary to be rested and mindful.

    Drink holder and optional speaker holder

    The Vortex™ Spa health indicator light is designed to communicate the spa’s condition to spa user without having to lift the cover. The indicator lights up blue to show it is at the correct temperature, red to indicate a water temperature fluctuation over 5°C, or a fault.

    SpaNet™ variable output heater

    The SpaNet™ SV Series has a variable output heater. Unlike most controllers, this means when the spa's jet pump is turned on, the heater turns DOWN rather than OFF. This has the benefit of maintaining the spa's temperature while you are using it, rather than cooling it down.

    SpaNet™ integrated heat pump interface (Optional)

    If you want to save up to 75% on your spa heating cost, you can choose the optional SpaNet™ Hybrid Heat Pump. This integrated system is plug and play with the SV controller.

    127mm Single Spinning Jets

    This large single spinner gives a rotating massage effect similar to a masseuse using their thumb in a kneading fashion. They provide a very effective back massage.

    127mm Directional Jet

    The 127mm directional jets provide an intense, pressure point massage. These are particularly effective at treating knotted muscles in the back.

    75mm Directional Jet

    This style of directional jets gives a targeted but less intense pressure point massage. It's very effective for a more prolonged treatment of tired muscles.

    Gallery Image

    75mm Single Spinning Jet

    The 75mm single spinning jets offer a similar effect as the larger 127mm variety but given their smaller size, the kneading effect is lighter and more focused.

    50mm Twin Spinning Jet

    The 50mm twin spinner offers a pulsating massage effect ideally suited for neck and shoulder therapy or as part of a shiatsu style massages treatment when teamed with 50mm directional jets.

    Gallery Image

    50mm Directional Jet

    These jets are usually used in banks of 8 or more jets and are often coupled with 50mm twin spinners to give a shiatsu style pressure point massage therapy.

    40mm Air Jet

    As the name implies, the 40mm air jets emit an air stream as opposed to a water stream. These are almost always used under the legs and buttocks to provide a relaxing soft tissue massage treatment.
