The company is in the midst of appointing dealers and sales partners in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah and other Emirates where there is substantial property development and several leading property developers have shown a strong interest in the SmartPool. “We are targeting to sell 600 units of Smart Pools in the first year. The number should increase substantially under our five-year blueprint,” Al Nuami said.

The Smart Pool is basically a swimming treadmill that offers a smooth, adjustable current that allows you to swim in the same place, akin to running on a conventional treadmill. It measures 15 by 8 feet and takes up only 130 square feet of built-up space and is the ideal solution for the UAE where land comes at a premium.

It is a next generation pool ideal for villa owners (who wish for privacy and convenience when exercising), hotels, schools, fitness centres and hospitals.

A product powered by Ascenteus Malaysia’s SmartPool Technology, it uses the latest technology that is superior to any other option available in the international market.

Nuaimi explained, ‘SmartPools offers a volume driven water propulsion system as opposed to a pressure driven system. Water in the pool moves as a river does, at over 30,000 liters per minute. As a result the swimmer strokes in one place moving against an even current and gets a concentrated workout.’

The first SmartPool has been installed at Coral Beach Resort, Sharjah. Jean Pierre Simon, Regional General Manager of Coral Beach Resort said, “we are delighted to be the first hotel in the UAE to have the SmartPool.”
