1. 'I used to be embarrassed going to the pool to be lapped by my out-of-shape neighbor!'

"I wanted a way to help improve my swim strength and to practice my catch and pull, without the need to go swimming!

I have definitely improved my catch and pull and am comfortably 5 secs per hundred faster than I had been with just swimming 3 times a week in the pool. I feel more comfortable going to the pool!"

2. 'Being a weak swimmer, sinky legs, getting overly fatigued at the pool then not going back for months!'

'I love it! I love being able to have a quick 'swim' during lunch, without all the prep and travel that going to the pool entails.

I've gotten stronger and I have more endurance making it easier to swim. 

Love the portability of the swim bench,
and there is so much versatility to do upper body workouts and also kicking exercises. Helped with a stronger core.'

3. 'Too time-consuming to drive to the pool change, shower, change, drive home. 2.5 hours effort for a 1-hour swim! Work, family, and training mean pool time get less priority than other life commitments!'

'I love the ZEN8 Swim Trainer! Being able to keep my swimming strength up without having to sacrifice other commitments is why this is possibly the most important training tool I own.

Now I can include a short 'swim' before my indoor trainer rides and brick sessions with ease!

I was genuinely surprised to see that my strength improved whilst using the ZEN8 Swim Trainer. I'm swimming faster now with less time in the pool than previously when I was swimming 4 times a week!'

Designed for Swim Training - The unique Air Swim Bench by ZEN8 will fire up your core.

4. 'Leaving family at home to go to the pool!'

'I think it’s a really good alternative to pool swimming allowing me to train as often as I can. 

It is really useful with two baby boys around as I can use it just for a few minutes. I use it a couple of times a week as a proper session but use it most days for a quick 5 or 10 mins spare moments.

Strength training the specific muscles or groups of muscles for swimming without having to worry about breathing etc. Catch position very easy to see out of water and also can focus on pull all the out the back!'

5. 'I love the open water more and do not like swimming in a pool. I used to lose a lot of swim fitness waiting for the water to warm up'

'ZEN8 has been brilliant during the off-season as I personally don't like the pools.

It really makes you more aware of your swimming technique. Also saw this with my athletes. So really love it. Keeps the total fitness that you need as a triathlete. Not just the catch and pull, but also the core, and back.

You really feel what muscles you need to use for your swimming. More easy on land and then it is easier to translate it to the water!'
