Swim Parachute

A swim parachute is an effective option for swim drag training.

Drag training can be an important element of your swim training. While there are many everyday items you can rig up to serve as drag training, it can be more beneficial to purchase specialized swim training gear that is designed specifically to complete this part of training. A swim parachute, such as the Speedo Dragster Swim Parachute, is one of the most effective swim drag training tools that are available on the market.

The Right Design

The primary reason to choose a swim parachute for your swim drag training is because they are specially designed to work best for this purpose. If you make your own using regular household items, such as large buckets, they may work, but they are not going to give you the same benefits as a piece of equipment that was created for the job. For instance, one of the best features of the Speedo parachute is that it will open as soon as it hits the water so swimmers won’t have to worry about opening the parachute manually. This means swimmers can focus more on their swimming than whether their equipment is working as it was meant to.

Other Great Features

The Speedo Dragster Swim Parachute also offers a number of other benefits that will serve you well as you use this important tool. The auto locking zipper heads that are a part of the design that prevents the chute from opening more than you would like it to. The more the chute opens, the greater the resistance you will experience as you swim. The chute also offers a stabilization buoy that can be adjusted to allow the parachute to float at varying depths, which can have an impact on the level of resistance.

How It Works

Understanding how this swim drag training tool works will show you how important it can be to your success in the water. When you use the swim parachute as part of your training, you will experience up to 80 percent additional workload as you move through the water. The right swim chute will stay open throughout your swim, including starts, flip turns and other turns.

Swim training is an important tool for every swimmer who wants to be successful. The swim parachute is one tool that can provide additional drag so you can build muscle and become a more effective swimmer. The Speedo Dragster Swim Parachute is one of the best options, giving you all the features you need to swim more effectively.

20 11 2013
Pool Storage

Pool storage helps you keep your pool equipment safe.

Swimming pools often require plenty of storage to keep things safe and secure without losing them. Swim training tools, balls and more need a place so they aren’t hard to find or in the way. When you need a place to store things at the pool, having the right storage containers makes things more organized and keeps the deck of the pool clear to avoid a dangerous situation.

Keep Everything on the Deck

When you need certain equipment, the last thing you want to do is head to the locker room to get it out of the closet or hunt it down because you don’t know where it is. With the Equipment Totemaster Plus, for example, you will be able to keep everything you need within easy reach. This large wire storage container sits directly on the deck so all you need to do is look in the bin and grab what you need. It’s all close by.

Easy to Move

Just because the storage container fits conveniently on the deck of your pool doesn’t mean it has to stay there, especially if your pool is outdoors. The Equipment Totemaster Plus is set on wheels so you can move it easily from one place to another. When your swimmers need the equipment inside, you simply roll the storage container out and access what is inside. After the session, it can easily be moved back inside for safe and secure storage.

Secure

Preventing theft is an important aspect for any storage container. The Equipment Totemaster Plus is made from durable metal so you can easily lock it to keep everything inside. This is the perfect solution for those who don’t wish to move the storage container from one place to another. Whether you keep it inside or outside, you can securely lock it. With the steel powder-coated metal wires cannot be easily cut through, making your items safe and secure.

Proper storage is an essential element of keeping your pool equipment safe and storing it in one convenient location. With the Equipment Totemaster Plus, you will gain the ability to store a large amount of equipment, move it easily from place to place and keep it secure. You won’t have to worry about tracking down lost equipment or worrying over whether it will be stolen when you aren’t around.





Protect Your Swim Goggles with a Goggle Case and Anti-Fogging Solution

18 11 2013
Swim Gear

Properly protecting your swim goggles ensures they last a long time.

Your swim goggles are one of the most important pieces of swim gear you own. Without the use of these goggles, you wouldn’t be able to see in the water, especially if you need prescription lenses or anti-reflective lenses for swimming outdoors. Because you don’t want to have to replace your swim goggles often, it is important to keep them as protected as possible. There are two things you need to keep them protected: a goggle case and anti-fog solution.

Speedo Goggle Case

Throwing your goggles into your swim backpack is going to cause damage. Goggles may not be extremely expensive, but buying new ones every few months should not be necessary. This is why it is so important to protect your goggles from damage. The Speedo Goggle Case is one of the best ways to protect your investment. This hard plastic case keeps your goggles from getting tangled up with other items in your bag and prevents cracking, twisting and other problems. Even though this case is made from hard plastic, it features drainage holes so you don’t have to worry about putting your goggles away wet. They will be able to quickly dry out, preventing mold.

Speedo Anti-Fog Spray

Fogging is a major issue when you are going in and out of the water, especially when the water is cool and the air is warm or vice versa. Before you enter the water, spray your goggles with Speedo Anti-Fog Solution to reduce the chances of fogging when you go in and out of the water. This spray also offers other benefits when you use it. The spray is good for removing dirt and other debris from the lenses to reduce the chances of scratching and to improve your visibility in the water. If you don’t use this type of spray, you are putting your goggles at risk, whether you are storing them or wearing them.

Taking good care of your goggles is essential if you don’t want to buy new ones every few months. It is tempting to simply throw them in your bag and go on with your day, but this can easily result in damage. Using anti-fog spray to clean and protect the lenses, as well as keeping them in a good goggle case will ensure your goggles last for a long time so you can enjoy the right pair of goggles without having to find new ones.

13 11 2013
Swim Training Gear

The right swim training gear can help individuals learn how to swim.

When individuals are learning to swim, there are many mechanics that must be learned well to ensure they can move effectively through the water. Whether they intend to be competitive swimmers or they want to swim for safety or leisure reasons, learning to swim will require many tools to make sure they can do so. One of these swim training tools is the Swim Stuff Rubber Swim Fins. These fins help build muscle in the legs and encourage swimmers to learn to kick properly for the best results.

Perfect for Everyone

The Swim Stuff Rubber Swim Fins are the perfect tool to help individuals of all ages and skill levels to learn to become more effective swimmers in the water. These fins are available in a variety of sizes to fit every foot. To make it easier for learn to swim programs to pair up the fins, each size comes in a unique color. Swimmers only need to grab two fins in the same color to ensure they are getting the perfect pair.

Comfortable to Wear

One of the most important features of swim training tools is the ease of use and how comfortable they are to use. These swim fins fit over the entire foot to make sure they are comfortable for most swimmers to wear. The lack of uncomfortable straps will allow individuals to use them for longer so they can spend more time in the pool learning to swim well.

An Effective Learning Tool

The length of the fins can convert even the smallest kicks into the forward motion individuals need to learn to swim. This can help individuals who do not have strong legs to move through the water and focus on other aspects of their swimming technique. As these fins create resistance in the water, it can also help to strengthen the leg muscles so these individuals can swim on their own more easily later.

Learning to swim can be an exciting venture for both children and adults. Whether they intend to swim competitively or just want to learn to swim for fun and safety, learn to swim schools are a great place to start. These schools offer all the training tools individuals need to succeed in the water, including swim fins, to help individuals learn the skills they need to move effectively through the water.





Stay Warm with the Speedo Streamline Warm Up

Swim Warm Up Suits

Swim warm up suits are the perfect way to stay warm out of the water.

Swimmers spend a lot of time going in and out of the water. Whether the pool is located indoors or out, there are times when it can be cold when swimmers get out of the pool. Even when the temperature isn’t cool, it can feel that way to wet swimmers. The best solution to this issue is the Speedo Streamline Warm Up Pants and Jackets. This swim gear is a necessity for anyone who wants to keep warm before getting in the pool and after getting out.

A Stylish Fit

When you wear the Speedo Streamline Warm Up Suits, you will experience a stylish fit that allows you to be comfortable and keeps your body warm.

A Great Swim Accessory

Even people who don’t swim competitively and want to stay warm when they get out of the water can benefit from these warm up suits. They are easy to slip on and off, making them convenient for all swimmers. No longer do swimmers have to towel off by the poolside and sit in their swimwear. They can dry off and put on their warm up suit or even simply slip it on without drying off completely.

Swim warm up suits are a great option for individuals who will be entering and leaving the water repeatedly. Even when the weather isn’t cold or the pool is located indoors, standing around in a wet swimsuit can lead to feeling cold. This can lead muscles to tense up, making it more difficult to swim. The right swim warm up suit will keep your muscles warm and help you swim better.
