Product Spotlight: Speedo Nemesis Fins

September 19, 2014 in Product Spotlights, Swimming

Have you seen the newest fins from Speedo? Learn about the most innovative fins on the market!

Speedo Nemesis Fins

COMFORT TRAINING

The Nemesis fin will become your greatest ally in the pool. The most comfortable fin on the market, with ergonomic foot pocket features and floating properties, which elevate the hips and feet into an improved streamline body position. Utilizing bio-mimicry, the Humpback Whale pectoral fin was part inspiration behind this unique deign.

1. TUBERCLES

Scalloped outer edge, like the Humpback Whale’s fin, creates greater surface area for water to pass over versus a smooth, straight edge. This technology creates enhanced propulsion, allowing the swimmer to push more water during kicking drills and training sets.

2. BLOW VALVES

Medial edge opening are larger on the bottom-side and smaller on the top-side. This creates a valve effect, in which water is captured on the underside and forced trough the smaller opening. Thus, more resistance is created on the down-kick.

3. FLOW CHANNELS

Channels on the top and bottom of the fins help guide water in the proper direction and toward the Blow Valves. The Flow Channels also help medially rotate the foot into the the correct orientation for maximum kick efficiency.

4. INJECTION MOLDED EVA (IMEVA) FOAM

IMEVA fins are naturally buoyant, aiding the swimmer with an elevated body position, keeping hips and feet in a more streamline position.

5. UNPARALLED COMFORT

Interior foot pocket was engineered by footwear experts, taking all unique footwear last features into consideration: arch support, more toe space to prevent pinching and cramping, graduated instep for excellent fitting across the mid-foot.

6. HEEL STRAP

Latticed back heel strap for maximum and comfort around the heel bone and Achilles Tendon area. Unique under-heel strap gives extra stability and security at the heel joint.

7. INTEGRATED GRAB HOLE

Incorporated finger hole on top of fin for ease of getting the fin on the foot

Take your training to the next level with PoolMateHR!

April 24, 2014 in Product Spotlights, Swimming, Triathlon

For those that swim on their own – we’ve found the perfect training companion for those long sessions in the pool.

PoolMateHR

Swimovate’s PoolMateHR – the ultimate swim training watch!

PoolMateHR PackageWhat makes PoolMateHR different from the myriad of swim watches on the market? It has a heart rate monitor that works both in and out of the pool. We here at Swim2000 know how many of you have wanted an underwater heart rate monitor and we are so pleased to finally be able to offer it to you! Beyond the underwater heart rate monitor, PoolMateHR is loaded with tons of useful features.

One of our favorite aspects of this watch is the vibrating alarm. There are three different ways to use this feature – by laps, distance or time. Never lose track of your laps again by having the PoolMateHR vibrate on multiples of a set number of laps. Or have it vibrate every time you’ve gone a set amount of meters. If you don’t care about laps or distance, you can set it to vibrate after a certain amount of time so you know your workout is complete!

PoolMateHR SoftwareThe PoolMateHR also has its own easy-to-use computer software. Connect the watch to your PC or Mac and analyze your performance in the pool! Custom generated charts help you break down sessions, sets and laps. Study your heart rate, speed and technique progression by simply connecting your watch to the included USB charging and downloading pod.

If you’re serious about swimming, you won’t find any electronic device better than the PoolMateHR! Learn more by clicking here!

Start The New Year In The Pool!

January 2, 2014 in Product Spotlights

Happy New Year! The new year allows us all a fresh start and motivation to meet goals. One of those classic New Years’ goals is to get in shape. Sure, you could hit the treadmills and ellipticals like so many others in January, but why not try water workouts? Water aerobics and deep water running are great low-impact alternatives to dryland exercise, and it’s easy to tailor your workout to either weight loss or body toning. Here are some items to get you started on your New Years goals!

AquaJogger BeltWater Jog Belts

A necessity for any deep water exercise is a flotation belt. Strap a belt around your waist and float upright comfortably in the water! Jog belts come in tons of shapes and sizes – perhaps you’d prefer one solid piece of foam like the Aqua Sphere ErgoBelt, or a belt made up of many pieces of foam like the Water Gear 5-Piece Professional Belt Float? If you’re petite try the AquaJogger FIT Belt and if you’re on the larger side the SHAPE PRO Belt will do nicely! Last but not least, consider adding the Water Gear Water Runner Hitch to your belt to help you stay in place while exercising.

Water Dumbbells and Hydro Resistance

Hydro Resistance

Just like jog belts, water dumbbells and other hydro resistance tools come in many different forms! Most are made of lightweight foam and work from water creating resistance against the surface area of the object when it is pushed through the water. So when you are shopping for a water dumbbell that comes in more than one size like the Water Gear Resistance Bells, the sizes with more resistance will have more surface area than the ones with low resistance. Most dumbbells are cylindrical in shape and have the same resistance no matter which way you point them, but you can also try the AquaJogger Delta Bells for an item that offers variable resistance. Push the points through the water for less resistance, and the flat sides for more! If you’d rather not spend your entire workout clenching dumbbells, consider items like the Water Gear Micro Buoyancy Cuff or the AquaJogger X-Cuffs for added resistance you can strap around your wrists or ankles.

Aquatic Fitness SwimwearAquatic Fitness Swimwear

That new you needs a new swimsuit! We have you covered – literally. Our Aquatic Fitness swimwear is designed to flatter all body types, and you’ll find suits for women’s US dress sizes 4 to 24. Our biggest suggestion for those who plan on being in the pool a lot is to buy polyester swimwear. (Why? Check out this blog post for more information!) If bust support is your first priority in choosing a swimsuit, you can shop for suits with shelf bras or suits with soft cups. Or if the type of coverage is paramount, check out our moderate-cut swimsuits or our conservative-cut swimsuits!

 

We hope these aquatic fitness equipment guidelines will help you start off your New Year in the pool! Good luck!
