Let’s do another technique-focused workout today with endurance work mixed in, and add to some of the information on Zoomers fins that I discussed in a previous newsletter.


“The first and the best victory is to conquer self.”

Zoomers for Balance, Power, Ankle Flexibility…

Daily, I get asked questions like

  • “How do I keep my feet from sinking?”
  • “How can I improve my kick”
  • “What can I do about my elbow dropping?”
  • “What’s the best way to do the drills you recommend like Shark Fin without sinking?”

The answer to all of these is: Zoomers!

I highly recommend getting a pair of the new Zoomers Z2 to help improve your stroke, your kick, and your balance in the water. If nothing else, it will get you doing the drills properly without the struggle, and you’ll be on your way to a better, more fluid freestyle.
