Improve your kick swim training fins


Michael uses shinfin fins during his swim training sessions to improve his kick. He notices the improvements in his natural (no-fins) kick straight away, when he removes the fins and keeps swimming.

Michael’s review from Kalgoorlie, Australia

“They arrived promptly and have improved my kick. I had a reasonable style but it has continued to improve.”

Michael’s review: Swim training fins improving his kick

“Thanks for the follow up. They arrived promptly and have improved my kick. I had a reasonable style but it has continued to improve.”

“I now regularly swim 2500m in a session including 800 with fins, 2 to 3 times per week in addition to other gym exercise.”

“The improvements are noticed after removing and swimming straight away.”

“Thanks again.”

“For your information I saw them on the Beyond Tomorrow show and purchased from that. Many people I have spoken to saw the show and liked the idea.”

Many thanks for your email – that’s great. We get a lot of feedback like this. It is quite fascinating how the streamlined kick pattern stays with you progressively as you train with shinfin fins, and then strengthen for the correct kick action. This also works with learner swimmers and disabled swimmers too. It has taken years to develop the right design to achieve this.

Thank you for spreading the shinfin word – personal recommendations are the best thing for getting a new idea like this going, so I really appreciate it.

Conclusion

Swim training with shinfin fins helps you to improve your kick. Indeed, they improve your entire stroke, for freestyle, butterfly and backstroke without straining your legs and feet. You notice your improved kick whilst you swim with them and also after you take them off. They imprint your muscle memory with the correct kick, so you remember the kick action. It is fascinating to observe this in yourself when you use them.
