The Swimming Power Harness is an upgrade to the typical waist belt used by parachutes and Power Towers. Waist belts allow for bad body position and don’t help train a driving stroke.

The Power Harness forces the swimmer’s upper body to drive to the other wall in a straight line rather than let it bob up and down aimlessly. It helps swimmers feel their power through the shoulders, giving them valuable feedback. This is the next step in resistance training!

  • Quickly clip in and out with an aluminum anti-rust carabiner
  • Versatile use with Power Towers, parachutes, cords or stationary ropes
  • Reversable for backstroke training
  • One size fits all harness
  • Soft neoprene shoulder sleeves that don’t inhibit technique
  • Add a Chute and 2lb Weight right from the e-store

A Message from the Inventor:

The Harness in Action with Towers/Parachutes

(orange Harness used for contrast):


“As a coach of collegiate athletes at the University of Minnesota, I am very excited about this product. We tried one briefly this summer and immediately ordered more. In our program, we will use these for power towers, power racks and parachutes. Our staff and athletes really liked how the harness shifted the resistance load from the hips to the chest/core. We could see a difference in body position and hip angle using the harness. We are very excited to use these more next season.”

– Alicia Franklin, associate head coach of the University of Minnesota Gophers

“As a coach, I like what I see in the water when my swimmers use the Power Harness. Our training is more technically sound and therefore more effective…

It is pretty durably constructed and comes with a carabiner so that you can attach it to parachutes, power towers, StretchCordz, buckets, or whatever form of in-water resisted training you do. You can also choose to buy it with a parachute and/or a weight. I don’t have a large budget for training equipment, but after trying the Power Harness I have already bought 9 of these so we can have a bunch of swimmers using it at the same time.”

– Ryan Woodruff, head coach of the Lynchburn (Virginia) YMCA and founder of the Swimming Wizard and author of The Quotable Swimming Coach
