LONG BEACH, Calif., March 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Research shows that swimming regularly can lower stress hormones, reduce anxiety and depression, and improve sleep patterns and overall fitness levels. Swimming is a fun way to unwind and destress, get together with friends and family, and can serve as a low impact way to help burn calories; in fact, an hour of vigorous swimming will burn up to 650 calories.
Despite the fact that according to the CDC swimming is the most popular recreational activity for children and teens aged 7-17 in the U.S, many families find it a challenge to get out and swim as often as they'd like due to the fact that they are restricted by cost, distance or access.
"In this busy world, it is easy to get caught up in day-to-day hassles that sometimes keep us from being in the water," said Marvin Natareno, Marketing Manager, Intex Recreation Corp. "At Intex, everything we do centers around quality, value and family time. That is why we offer a broad array of above ground pool options, pool floats and novelty floats, that will enable just about anyone to enjoy the health benefits and fun times of having a pool."
Intex pools, the worldwide leader in above ground pools, is kicking off pool season this year with an enhanced lineup of pool options for most yards and budgets:
- New Intex Prism Frame™ Pools – Inspired by Intex's top-of-the-line Ultra Frame™ Rectangular pools, the new Prism Frame™ Pools offer many of the same benefits, with smaller dimensions to fit a wider variety of yards.

Easy to set up, Intex Prism Frame pools boast a unique cool blue/gray color with white trim for a fresh look to complement today's modern patio décor. The Prism Frame line features models in three convenient sizes and shapes, including: 15 ft. and 24 ft. round pools and 16 ft. x 8 ft. rectangular pools.
