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!

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.

Lotion

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!

FATHER’S DAY

June 15, 2013 in Family Fun, For Coaches & Parents, Las Vegas Local, Lifeguard, Product Spotlights, Swimming, Triathlon

Sunday is Father’s Day and with it comes the opportunity to enjoy quality water time with dear old Dad.  If it’s a backyard pool party, there are a number of ways to enhance your aquatic experience this Father’s Day.  A backyard pool party for the family and friends will take on another dimension with the inclusion of toys and pool games for the festivities.  Grab a snorkel and mask set and set up a scavenger hunt using dive rings and pool toys.  For a combination of games, look to the Across Pool Volleyball/Badminton Set from Water Gear.  This set includes the standards, net, ball, rackets and birdies for guaranteed hours of pool fun.  If basketball is your game, add another dimension and play a championship series of your own with the Heavy Duty Water Basketball Game, also from Water Gear.  Team or one-on-one competitions will keep everyone involved, and it may give Dad a reason, or the perfect excuse, to officiate the action.

Perhaps Dad just wants to kick back and relax this Father’s Day.  Maybe he just wants to sit back and enjoy watching it all.  If that’s the case, let him lounge in style and watch all the competition with a quality flotation device.  Keep beverages at the ready and share some floating time with Dad on the River Run II from Wet Products.  This dual tube design features seating for two, two cup holders, two handles (for the rogue wave) and showcases a cooler in the middle that keeps beverages cold and ready.  Wet Products also offers the 18 Pocket Suntanner.  This raft is over 6 feet long, 2 feet wide and includes a pillow for Dad to rest his weary head on.  However, Dad may need to load up on the sunscreen in case the competition is so riveting he happens to doze off for a few minutes on this floating nap vessel.

Remember, whatever activities you have planned this Father’s Day, it’s always safety first.  Enjoy, and Happy Father’s Day!

Summer and Mirrored Goggles!!!

June 4, 2013 in Product Spotlights, Swimming, Triathlon

Both competitive and recreational swimmers are likely to spend more time
outdoors during the summer months.  They also have to contend with the
intensity of the summer sun, an intensity that can negatively impact a
swimmer's vision both in and around the water.  We all have only one set
of eyes, and it's important to take every precaution to protection them. 
Wearing a quality pair of goggles every time you're in the water is strongly
recommended, whatever the water activity may be.  Goggles provide a water
tight seal for hours on end, making it easier to see clearly and ensuring the
safety and protection of your eyes from the harmful elements and irritants
found in the water.  Goggles also include quality protection from the harmful
rays of the sun, incorporating UVA/UVB protection features that are second to
none.  And if you’re concerned about comfort, don’t be. 
Components found in goggles today not only provide a water tight seal, they also
provide a comfortable fit you can rely on time and time again. 

Increased glare is a factor all swimmers have to contend with in the pool and
the open water during the summer months, and it's a factor that can have a huge
impact on swimmers during a competition.  The best way to combat the
negative effects of increased glare from the summer sun during competition is
with a pair of mirrored swim goggles.  Mirrored lens goggles are
specifically designed to help reduce the glare associated with the reflection
of sunlight on the water, reducing eye strain and enhancing your vision in even
the most intense sunlight.  And for the fashionistas, mirrored goggles
provide a sleek look that will keep you as cool in your mind as you feel you
need to be each time you put them on.

A number of manufacturers offer mirrored goggles, in a variety of styles and
designs suited for any competitive or recreational discipline, as an integral
part of their product lines.  For speed in the pool, Speedo offers the
Liquid Storm Mirrored goggles.  Ideally suited for racing, these goggles
showcase a hard frame that provides a water tight seal, a low-profile fit that
reduces drag and mirrored, wide angle lenses that reduce glare, enhance vision
clarity and provide increased peripheral vision capability that enables you to
keep an eye on the competition. For open water and triathlon use, Tyr offers
the Nest Pro Metallized goggles.  Inspired by the bird nest design of the
Olympic Stadium in Beijing, Nest Pro Metallized goggles are quality performance
goggles with a high-tech design suitable for competition, training, triathlon
or open water use.  These goggles incorporate a VTS (Varied Tensile
Strength) headstrap that combines with the TPR gasket/frame system to enhance
comfort, provide a water tight seal and conform to your head for a secure fit. 
Nest Pro Metallized goggles are also comfortable, durable, and feature
mirrored, anti-fog lenses with wide angle vision capability and embedded
protection that reduces glare and enhances clarity whenever you're in the water.

Remember, it’s always safety first, especially where the eyes are
concerned.  And if you’re looking for some mirrored goggles to enhance
your summer season, contact Swim2000 and we’ll help you select a pair of
mirrored goggles that are right for you.
