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!

Don’t have a long course pool to prepare for the Trials? No Problem! Add the Parachute and Weight combo and make any short pool feel Olympic sized!

  • 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

“This swimming power harness has absolutely changed the way I’ve been able to practice in swim practice. We have created work-outs specifically to revolve around these parachutes and they work great! They’re not annoying and get in your way like the typical parachute and are very customizable for anyone. I love my swimming power harness and I would highly recommend it!”

– Josie Thomas

“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.”

About Swim Smart’s Break-Away:

  • Automatic release system
  • A new ability in resistance training
  • Use with Power Towers or stationary swimming
  • Increase practice efficiency with quick switches

Power Towers and general resistance training is great for all swimmers, but it has been limited. Swimmers are forced to stay connected to their resistance device and usually have to waste time floating back, preventing others from training too.

The Break-Away allows swimmers to automatically disconnect from a Power Tower at a set point in the lane, up to 15 yards away. The disconnected swimmer can then use the power and feel from their resistance training to finish the 25 or 50 with speed!


“The ability for the power towers cord to breakaway and retract on its own has really increased the number of reps our swimmers can get in during a workout. As a coach, it gets really annoying watching swimmers lazily swim the power towers cord back to the starting wall, this product completely eliminates that headache.”

– Coach Ben

“As a swimmer, my club consistently uses breakaways in practice. I look forward to using breakaways in practice because I am able to feel the power I am using in the beginning of the 25 and then hold the power once it breaks away.”

– Swimmer Anita
