Take Care of Yourself with Personal Care Swimming Products!

October 9, 2013 in Product Spotlights, Swimming, Triathlon

Dry itchy skin, green hair and smelling like chlorine are all problems of the past when you shop Personal Care at Swim2000! Here are a few highlighted products to help you smell fresh and feel great after swimming.

Shampoos and Conditioners

UltraSwim ShampooOne of our favorite shampoo-conditioner combos (and definitely a customer favorite!) is UltraSwim Shampoo and UltraSwim Conditioner. The shampoo has a unique formula that attacks chlorine build up, releasing chlorine bonded to your hair. The conditioner delivers extra moisture to chlorine-exposed locks and helps repair split ends. It’s also one of our lowest-priced hair care offerings, making it a perfect choice for those who need to wash the chlorine from their hair on a regular basis! Another favorite shampoo is Reflect H2O Sulfate Free Swim Shampoo. Those wanting to take extra special care of their hair will want to try this shampoo, as it contains quality ingredients that are gentle on your hair. Pair that with the Reflect H2O Pre-Swim and Sun Protecting Hair Gel for a complete solution for protecting your hair from chlorine!

Soaps, Body Washes and Chlorine Removal

Summer Solutions Soap+ BarWe’ll start simple by giving two thumbs up to the Summer Solutions Soap+ Bar. It’s gentle enough for sensitive skin and does a great job of removing chlorine from the skin. If you prefer body wash over bar soap, try the TriSwim Body Wash. Since it contains aloe it is also gentle on your skin, and the citrus scent is delightful! If you still can’t get rid of that annoying chlorine smell, SwimSpray is what you need! This Vitamin C spray is great at removing the chlorine smell, and it can be used on the body or on hair.


TriSwim LotionChlorine can dry out the skin – that’s why it’s great to always have a bottle of Summer Solutions Moisture Therapy on hand. Specifically formulated for swimmers, this lotion will hydrate and soothe your dry skin. Another great choice is TriSwim Lotion, which contains Vitamin E and Vitamin B5 – ingredients that will help penetrate the skin to moisturize, hydrate and heal your skin.

Chafing Protection

BodyGlideSome of us don’t just swim, and we have products formulated for our triathlete friends too! A perennial favorite for preventing chafing is BodyGlide, which we have available in the original formulation as well as an anti-pain balm. If you want something created just for women, you’ll definitely want to try the aptly-named Reflect Sports Hoo Ha Ride Glide.

We hope this post helps you repair your hair and skin from the harsh effects of chlorine and chafing!

Stay Warm On Deck With Warmwear Products!

September 26, 2013 in Product Spotlights, Swimming

Do you feel that chill in the air? Even here in Las Vegas, our temperatures have dropped substantially in the last few weeks. Like us, you don’t stop your swim routine just because it’s chilly outside – but that doesn’t mean you have to freeze in or out of the water! Here are some suggestions for staying warm during this fall and winter.

Parkas @ Swim2000


During the coldest months of the year, a parka may be the most invaluable item in your swim pack! Whether you’re looking for the tried-and-true Tyr Team Parka or the new Arena Piston Parka, you can’t go wrong with any selection. All our parkas have fleece interiors and exteriors that will help prevent cold winds from chilling you. We even have parkas for children, such as the Nike Youth Swim Parka.

Warm-Ups @ Swim2000Warm-Ups

Look stylish on deck in a brand-new warm-up set from one of many quality brands! Nike’s Laser Warm-Up Jacket and Pants are great choices with its Dri-FIT wickaway fabrication. You could also try the Speedo Boom Force Warm-Ups – they come in lots of great colors and are available in many sizes fit specifically for men, women or children. Dolfin Swimwear has recently come out with warm-ups as well and they are a perfect choice for the more budget-conscious swimmer.

Warm Wear @ Swim2000Warm Wear

If you’re looking for a more casual option to keep you warm that can be worn anywhere, why not check out our warm wear? You’ll find a large and colorful selection of hoodies, pullovers and sweat pants. A great choice for ladies is the Arena Parkour Zip Hoodie which comes in several vibrant colors. For ultimate comfort, women can also try the Speedo Yoga Pants. For the guys, there is the Tyr Throw Back V-Neck Pullover, which celebrates Tyr’s nearly 30-year history. You can even pick up matching sweat pants from Tyr!

Thermal Swim Wear @ Swim2000Thermal Wear

If it’s the water and not the air that’s chilling you, we have a solution! Check out our Thermal Wear selection, featuring Aqua Sphere’s Aqua Skins. If you only need to warm your core you can try the Aqua Skin Top, but if the water is frigid and you need maximum protection, try the Aqua Skin Full Suit. There are many options in between the two, fitted specifically for men and women – be sure to explore it all!

Happy swimming! Stay warm!

Choosing the Right Suit for Your Body Shape

August 1, 2013 in Product Spotlights, Swimming

Women come in all sorts of wonderful shapes and sizes – and Swim2000 carries a wide variety of suits that cater to all those shapes! Everyone’s heard of an hourglass shape, but do you know what an apple or pear shape is? This handy guide will explain 5 shapes and how to pick an amazing suit for each type. Big thanks to Arena for the graphics and a good portion of the information!

Apple Shape Apple Shape
Embrace your body with a suit that supports your shape and compliments your assets. A ‘one colour’ suit with vertical panels or piping down the front of each side, curving inwards gives the impression of a waist. A swimsuit with built in bra and full body support will emphasise your soft curves.

Our Pick: Aqua Sphere Lima Round Back

  Pear Pear
You are all woman! Your wonderful lower curves may benefit from a ‘low leg cut’ swimsuit. Bright colour and design across the bust will emphasise and draw attention away from your womanly hips and bottom. Try a suit with a padded bra, it will certainly help boost your assets.

Our Pick: Aqua Sphere Acacia Body Shape Back

Inverted Triangle Inverted Triangle
You have a strong, athletic body shape. Flatter it by drawing attention away from the top half of your body but to your slender lower half. This can be done by wearing a suit that has bright colour and bold design to the lower section.

Our Pick: Speedo Empire Splice Adjustable Crossback

Ruler Ruler
Your body shape suits almost any swimsuit!. Vertical panels or piping down the front of the suit which curve inwards at each side give the appearance of a waist whilst cheeky padded cups only maximize your already admirable shape.

Our Pick: Aqua Sphere Anise Round Back

Hourglass Hourglass
Embrace your fabulous curves and enhance them further with a swimsuit that offers a cup sized bra. Opt for a back that provides chest support and adjustable straps. You have a wonderfully feminine body so why not honour it with bright colours and bold design.

Our Pick: Dolfin Xtra Life Lycra Lap Suit Print
