Swimming with large, bulky paddles puts strain on the shoulder joint and can damage or wear down the swimmer over longer intervals of training. Overuse or any incorrect stroke mechanics over thousands of repetitions is a proven recipe for injury and loss of efficiency in training.

Finding and maintaining a consistent tempo while swimming breaststroke is the cornerstone for an efficient stroke. One way to achieve this optimal stroke tempo for breaststroke is to use the Tempo Trainer Pro. (Featured Image: Anthony Ervin, Olympic Champion)
There is often only one opportunity to introduce a child to the sport of swimming. The FINIS Mermaid Fin is a legitimate early training tool that introduces our great sport in a fun and imaginative way, making it a great addition to any backyard pool or swim center.
No matter what level of swimmer you are, there is always room to improve your “feel” for the water.

“We are extremely lucky to have such an incredible swimmer join our team,” said FINIS President John Mix. “It would be enough if all she did were win gold medals and set world records, but this young woman is so remarkable on her own. Her drive, her will to succeed, to overcome adversity; we can all learn a lot from Mallory Weggemann.”
Breaststroke is arguably the most difficult stroke to coach, whether your swimmers are new to the sport or have more experience. Having said that, a well executed breaststroke is a thing of beauty and is well worth the time spent perfecting it.
Great swimmers have an element of grace and fluidity to their strokes. Even if they are exerting a great amount of effort while racing towards the wall, their technique holds strong. They know, through countless hours of repetition in training, that the easiest way to swim fast is to maintain the most efficient form possible.
The new Reference Guide from FINIS includes training sets and information from world-renowned coaches and athletes.
Swimming “the right way” also helps protect your joints from injury. Whether you swim once a month or swim every day, learning to swim correctly will enhance your experience and keep you healthy.
The FINIS Neptune is like no other waterproof MP3 on the market. Although it has been largely successful in nearly 70 countries around the world, many competitive swimmers and coaches are quick to write the Neptune off. Understanding the technology and the applications of Bone Conduction Audio during training will revolutionize the way swimmers perform in large blocks of training.
