Choose the right barbells for your water workout.
Barbells are an important part of any water aerobics workout.

Speedo has long been known for its competitive swimwear, but this isn’t the only way they have helped swimmers. In fact, they are constantly developing new gear and strategies to help swimmers enhance their performance. Recently, Speedo has released their equipment and initiative called Speedo Fit. This fitness equipment will take water aerobics to a whole new level.

Fitness Barbells

Weights have become an important element in aqua fitness. There are a couple of barbell options created by Speedo as part of the Speedo Fit initiative, giving individuals the opportunity to perform more typical fitness exercises while in the water. The Speedo Aqua Fit 360 hand weights weigh a pound each and are the perfect option for simple weightlifting exercises in the water. Explore your other options for Speedo aqua barbells to ensure you find the perfect solution to best suit your needs.

Get a Grip

Holding onto weights, even those that are made from softer materials for use in the water, can be difficult or cause stress on your hands. This is why it’s recommended to use Speedo Aqua swim gloves to help you get a solid grip on the weights to ensure they don’t slip out of your hands as you workout. These comfortable gloves can also create greater resistance in the water, which can enhance your workout in other ways.

Speedo has begun a water fitness initiative that is being backed by some of the biggest names in swimming today. This type of water aerobics will provide swimmers with the chance to improve their performance. The goal is to be able to exercise similar to the way you would at the gym only under the water so you can enhance all the muscles you use to swim so you can become a stronger swimmer.

Enjoy quality swim training gear from Michael Phelps.
Michael Phelps has created a variety of swim training gear.

Training like an Olympian requires you to use some of the same gear as Olympians have been using to improve their times and become some of the best swimmers in the world. Michael Phelps is perhaps one of the most well-known swimmers of all time. This is why he has developed a series of high level performance gear that can help swimmers improve their technique and better focus on faster swim times. This is why Michael Phelps has worked with Aquasphere to create a variety of products for swimmers.

MP Focus Swim Snorkel

Snorkels aren’t just something used to check out the tropical fish in warm waters around the world. A swim snorkel, such as the MP Focus swim snorkel, can help both beginner and experienced swimmers focus on their technique, rather than having to worry about their breathing while they swim. Combining the proper breathing motions with swim technique can be difficult. A snorkel allows you to focus on one at a time.

MP Strength Training Paddles

The MP Strength training paddles are designed to increase resistance in the water to help swimmers increase muscle mass and to help them feel the proper movements. These paddles were designed by Phelps himself to help other swimmers train, whether they are aiming for the Olympics or they have much smaller aspirations and simply want to become better swimmers.

MP XCEED Titanium Mirror Goggle

No swim ensemble is complete without the right pair of swim goggles. Michael Phelps has covered this aspect of swimming as well. The MP XCEED titanium mirror goggle is the perfect option for swimmers who swim outdoors in particular. The mirrored finish helps eliminate glare on the water so swimmers can easily see where they are going in the pool. The low-profile fit also reduces drag and helps keep swimmers more streamlined in the water.

Training to become a better swimmer requires you to have all the right gear on hand. Michael Phelps has earned more Olympic medals than any other swimmer or athlete, which makes his expertise valuable for those who also have high aspirations in swimming. With the help of his line of swim gear and training products, every swimmer can gain the competitive advantage.

Try the Michael Phelps low-profile goggles.

Michael Phelps is the most decorated Olympians, as well as one of the most well known competitive swimmers. As such, he has created his own collection of goggles to give other swimmers the same advantages he has had in the water. Whether individuals are looking for clear, smoked or mirrored lenses, he has created a variety of Aquasphere goggles even Phelps would be proud to wear in the pool as he swims his gold-medal winning races.

Low-Profile Racing Goggles

The Aquasphere K180 swimming goggles by Michael Phelps are low-profile racing goggles that are designed to protect the eyes and allow for clear visibility in the water without causing excess drag as the swimmer moves through the water. Because Phelps has extensive experience in the competitive world of swimming, he knows what it takes to get the right traction in the water without negatively affecting drag, which can add precious milliseconds to your times. When races are won or lost by fractions of a second, every minute detail counts.

A Variety of Options

When you choose the Aquasphere competitive swimming goggles designed by Michael Phelps, you will find there are a variety of options to help you choose the one that best fits your swimming needs. For instance, if you spend most of your time swimming outdoors, the titanium mirror lenses can be your best choice. These lenses reflect away the light so you can see more clearly and guard against the glare off the pool water. For those who spend more of their time swimming indoors, the clear or smoky lenses can be the ideal solution.

Finding the right swimming goggles is important if you want to do your best in the water. While many goggles look similar, there are differences. For instance, the Michael Phelps designed Aquasphere goggles feature a low-profile design that is meant to reduce drag in the water and help swimmers see clearly without the bulk of your average goggles. With the option of clear, smokey or mirrored lenses, every swimmer will be able to find the exact style that will best suit their needs and their personal preferences.

The Best Selling Starting System for Competitive Swimmers

The Best Selling Starting System for Competitive Swimmers

Get off to the right start with swim meet starting systems.
Swim meet starting systems are an important component.

If you’re involved in competitive swimming, you understand the importance of quality start systems. They keep swim meets on schedule and give all swimmers a level playing field.

Swim Meets: 90 Percent Muscle, 10 Percent Technology

One of the refreshing aspects of competitive swimming is there is so little equipment involved. Swim meets involve swimmers wearing swimsuits, swim caps and goggles in a swimming pool. In competitive swimming, however, there will never be a “deflate-gate” controversy. One will never wonder if a bat has been corked. The technologies in play in competitive swimming are there to keep swim meets moving along and to record results accurately. Arguably, the swim meet starting system is the most important technology in competitive swimming.

The Colorado Timing Infinity Swim Meet Starting System: Popular for a Reason

Packed with features, the Colorado Timing Infinity Starting System is the smart choice for swim meet planners whose away schedules involve pools that are not equipped with their own starting systems. The lightweight and compact Colorado starting system can be easily packed up and transported to all swim meets. Many lesser starting systems use only visual or audible cues. The Colorado system incorporates both a loud sound and a flashing strobe light to alert all swimmers of the start of a race. To maximize the effectiveness of the sound notifications, mount speakers under individual starting blocks and/or at each end of the pool.

The addition of a visual cue in the form of a flashing strobe light is a huge benefit for all swimmers, especially for those who are hearing impaired. Instead of having to watch other competitors for cues, they can focus on the race ahead.

Additionally, the Colorado system has a false-start notification feature that ensures competitors know immediately when a false start has delayed the race. Each extra stroke a swimmer takes, not realizing there has been a false start, puts him at a disadvantage.

The easily portable and surprisingly affordable Colorado timing infinity start system is the best of the best and will serve reliably for seasons to come. The Colorado Infinity Start System features corrosion-resistant speakers and a microphone, and its gel-cell battery can be charged using a 115-volt charger.  In competitive swimming, fractions of seconds count. An effective start system can keep swimmers from wasting energy on false starts.
