FINIS TEMPO TRAINER PRO
Develop consistency and avoid lulls in your stroke with a personal pace coach, the Tempo Trainer Pro. The small, waterproof device easily secures under a swimmer’s cap and transmits an audible tempo beep. Athletes use the beep to train smarter and discover their perfect pace.
In 'Stroke Rate Mode' you program in a strokes per minute figure, place the Tempo Trainer under your swim cap and you will hear it beep the stroke rhythm to you as you swim; all you need to do is time your strokes to the beep as your hands enter the water. You can easily lower or raise your stroke rate slightly to find the sweet spots in your stroke efficiency. Depending on what type of swimmer you are, this is a great tool for removing dead spots or over-gliding from your stroke, or to slow your stroke down to give you more time to focus on engaging all the stroke mechanics for better propulsion.
In 'Lap Interval Mode' you set the Tempo Trainer to a speed that you wish to swim at per 25 or 50m. You then simply pace your swim so that you are pushing off on each lap on the beep. Most swimmers have very poor pacing, starting too fast and then fading which greatly harms their performances. Many swimmers set PBs the very first time they use a stroke beeper for this reason.
Following CSS (critical swim speed) testing we are able to generate target lap times for longer CSS paced swims to really maximise pacing and performance.
FINIS FREESTYLER HAND PADDLES
Specifically designed for freestyle training, the Freestyler Hand Paddle planes the hand forward through the water, improving reach and distance-per-stroke. With a long fin shape and unique skeg design, the Freestyler promotes a strong pull through, better hip-rotation and increased efficiency. With an adjustable finger strap for a perfect fit, the Freestyler paddle is narrower than most paddles, which prevents shoulder strain.
We regularly use these ‘technique’ paddles to work on ‘spearing the water’ hand entry as well as hand placement and alignment during the catch and pull phases. Great for removing cross-overs and ultimately better streamlining and propulsion through the water.
