Michael is an age-group triathlete from the UK. He loves how
the ZEN8 Swim Trainer helps him get the swim session done
on days when the pool is not an option.
No matter if you're a physio, coach, age-group triathlete
or PRO, the ZEN8 Swim Trainer is there for you when you
The ZEN8 swim trainer is exactly what it says on the tin and more. Like many triathletes, finding time to swim is not always easy while trying to balance work, family life and fitting in the other training hours that are needed to be fast.
This does it all, it has meant that I have actually become a faster swimmer while swimming less. It's easy to fit a quick 20 to 40 minute session into the day before work or before an evening run or ride. The online workouts are effective and easy to follow, and you see the results quickly when you get in the water. It will help you develop your catch, pull and push phases of your stroke and depending on the workout, can increase you core strength.
Also, the after sales service is A++. When I had an issue with a part, a quick email conversation was started and replacement sent.
Although nothing replaces being in the water and trying to breathe, ZEN8 has definitely helped me improve my stroke and enabled me to slowly analyze exactly what I'm doing wrong with each portion of the stroke. It is helping me build shoulder strength and it is the best for, the price, to help with swimming when you can't get into the water. It stores easily and can be quickly set up and broken down and put away. I wish I had ordered ZEN8 months ago when I first saw it.
I purchased the Zen8 having read a few reviews, I have been using it about three weeks and I am feeling the benefits as I didn't have much upper body strength, so open water swimming was a bit of a challenge against the current, feeling the benefits, buts early days.
I have been using swim cord bands as additional swim training for personal training and coaching. However, since Covid hit and forced lockdowns, I have been looking for swim specific training tool in the market as the swim cord approach has, unfortunately, had multiple gaps:
I find that core engagement and streamlined horizontal positioning are neglected. So then the next solution is combining the swim cord and a bench or yoga ball; the next challenge that occurs with the bench plus cords compo is that the bench is a stable platform, and it's hard to engage the core facing down a stable platform. Finally, the yoga ball is unstable. However, you are in a streamlined horizontal position.
The zen8 swim bench plus the swim cord checks both core engagement and streamlined horizontal position concerns. It is imbalanced, activating my core while on it and firing up every muscle for a better-streamlined horizontal position with every stroke.
I’ve introduced it as home-session when not going to the pool, in 2 weeks my catch and pull have improved drammatically and I’ve gained 12” on 100m laps. Can’t wait to discover how much better I’ll get in a few months
Bought this to help me, for those days when I'm not in the water. I still get to swim but out of the water instead, and helps with inner core strength and balance. Definitely feeling the benefits already
I‘m really happy with the trainer. It improves my swim technic in a short time. I felt my muscles after every Training but I‘m happy ;-)
Hi guys I am enjoying using the zen 8 it’s early days and some days seem harder to grasp than others but when I get in the pool to swim drills I feel stronger and people have commented that my stroke has improved
Quick, easy to set up and an ideal solution for those who can’t get to the pool or water as much as they would like.
I use it to maintain surfpaddling muscles.
Great for the back,shoulders and arms.Veey compact,low bulk and easy to move around option to the swim machines at a tenth of the price.
Maybe some anti slip on the bottom of the cushion would be good but on my cork floor it works fine as is.
Great product, tired of doing swim drills standing up and bending over. The zen 8 allows you to do the drills whilst activating your core.
The Zen8 trainer is excellent for people who don’t have access to the pool or can’t make the time. Easy to set up and easy to use. Very happy with the quality of materials too-
Order, delivery and set up couldn’t be easier. I was really impressed with the quality of the material out of the box. The initial inflation of the bench took some time, but it holds the air great. The free two week training plan and videos are really well organized and easy to follow. I can get in a swim and bike trainer session done in just over an hour. I highly recommend this product for people who don’t have a swimming base or who struggle to get to the pool on a consistent basis.
As a lifetime swimmer, both competitive and recreational, pool and outdoor, I see this product as a useful development for out of water training. The innovation of the inflatable support bench is the key. This will become an invaluable tool for swimmers but I predict that Triathletes will see it as a training essential.
Absolutely great product and material! The price is more than fair! Extreme fast delivery also!
Enjoy the possibility of exercising with zen8 🤙🏽
