85% of these triathletes are not from a swimming background and used to swim 2.4 times per week on average. Now they supplement with Dryland Swim Training 2 to 3 times per week, with as little as 15 minutes per session.
"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!"
'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.'
'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.
'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!'
'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!'
The whole idea behind ZEN8 is to make it easier for you to train for swimming. Having an alternative way to build swim-specific strength, and endurance and work on your catch and upper body strength means you can focus on getting a good feel for the water when you finally have time to hit the pool.
You should be able to be consistent in your training so that you can turn up confident at your next race. That's why founder, Victor, designed the original ZEN8 Swim Trainer. A Dryland Swim Trainer to help you get more swim-specific training done in less time.
