Megan loves her shinfinTM fins for her daily exercise including freestyle swimming, kicking practice and deep water running with a float around her waist. They don’t hurt her back, hips, knees and ankles like normal foot fins. This is because they encourage her to kick from her hips with a smooth kick thrust. Overall she finds they give her good workouts and help her to get more out of her exercise.
Megan’s review from Townsville, Australia
“I love my shinfinTM fins. I find them easier on my body (ankles, knees, hips, back) than normal fins and I swim every day. Mostly freestyle and lots of kicking practice. shinfinTM fins help me get more out of the exercies. I use a float around my waist for deep water running. It is a good workout.”
Megan’s review: Daily exercise & deep water running fins
“I love my shinfinTM fins. I’ve been using them for a while and only recently purchased replacement straps. I find them easier on my body (ankles, knees, hips, back) than normal fins. I do swap around with normal ones and swimming is so much harder when I don’t use the shinfinTM fins.”
I’m glad to hear you love them. Yes they are easier on your body than regular flippers. They are more in tune with how your body should be moving through the water. What activities are you using them for?
“I swim every day. Mostly freestyle and lots of kicking practice.”
“I also run in the water.”
“I’m trying to fix a hip flexors and back problem and the water exercise soothes. shinfinTM fins help me get more out of the exercise.”
Glad to hear the fins are helping you to get more from your exercises. Yes, I get a lot of good feedback about shinfinTM fins improving core muscle strength, with power from your hip flexors.
Do you do your water running wearing shinfinTM fins too? Do you do deep water running with a float or with your feet touching the bottom of the pool?
Can I ask a favour please? Would you mind if I put some extracts from your emails on the web site?
“Yep, I’m ok with sharing my comments.”
“I use a float around my waist for deep water running. It is a good workout and I don’t get anywhere very fast but it does get the heart rate up.”
Thank you for your kind permission Megan. Personal recommendation is very important to help a new product like this along, so I really appreciate it.
You will love shinfinTM fins for freestyle swimming, kicking practice and deep water running, with or without a float around your waist, as well as for other exercises too. This is because they encourage you to kick from your hips with smooth kick power. So they don’t hurt your back, hips, knees and ankles like normal foot fins. Overall, they help you get more from your exercises and give you good workouts.
These other reviews show how versatile the fins are, being used for aqua aerobics, water running, with a waist belt float and with water shoes. These further reviews demonstrate the fins giving less knee and back pain after a knee replacement and being worn on prosthetic legs.
