Buying Tips

Swimming and water aerobics are low-impact activities that tone muscles, improve cardio health—and even decrease the risk of chronic illness. Water workouts are a great option for those with mobility issues and joint pain. Learn more about the tools it takes to get in shape in the water:

Water weights help boost resistance in the water and can be used to target and tone individual parts of the body. Get versatile with your workout—pump water dumbbells. Use a water belt to improve balance and buoyancy during aquatic jogging or running. Strengthen your arms with simple swimming gloves, designed with a weighted construction and webbed fingers.

Kickboards support your upper body while conditioning your lower body.

Swimming fins build leg strength in the underdeveloped muscles in the back of the leg. You can achieve better race position, refine your stroke and even boost flexibility from workouts that incorporate fins. Fins with foot straps allow you to easily adjust your fin and wear water shoes in the pool. A full-pocket fin feels like a more natural extension of your foot.

Expert Advice

Always ensure that your water or swimming equipment is crafted with lightweight foam that’s chlorine resistant. EVA foam is durable, soft and easy to handle.

Whether you’re a novice swimmer or an experienced athlete, swimming goggles are an essential part of your workout. Performance-built swim goggles are designed with a light, low-profile fit that guards against water seepage.

Some swimmers prefer goggles made with a hypoallergenic silicone—a great option of those allergic to Latex. Most goggles are made with polycarbonate lenses, which is the gold standard in athletic eyewear. Polycarbonate is a near-shatter-proof plastic that stands up to water and chemical exposure.

Consider the color of your goggle lenses. Clear lenses provide better provide better visibility in low-light conditions. Blue and mirrored lenses filter light where glare is present. Amber provides better color contrast.
