Hip power is a key benefit of shinfin™ fins, as shown in the customer reviews below. They give you a natural, powerful kick from your hips using the stronger muscles in your thighs and torso.
This guides you towards correct kick timing with a more constant speed within each stroke, which is more efficient. They also build your muscle memory for this correct streamlined kick. So your stronger, hip power kick transfers to your no-fins swimming too.
By simply doing laps with her shinfin fins, Margo also learns much stronger normal swimming without fins. This is because they help her learn to swim in the correct kicking position with straighter legs. So they give her more hip power and efficiency. As a result, her swimming feels very easy. She can swim twice as far without getting tired, thus boosting her swimming confidence. So her swim learning with shinfin fins transfers to greatly improve her swimming without fins too. Furthermore, she finds the fin comfort wonderful and no longer gets cramping in her feet and toes when she swims without fins.
Margo’s review from Weetangera, Australia
“Just to let you know that I took your suggestion of trying to swim without the fins, after having done a number of laps with them. Couldn’t believe how much stronger my ‘normal’ swimming was! I kept my legs straight when kicking, and moved with more power and efficiency through the water (and so far, no cramps!). I am sure this is due to my body having been ‘trained’ into the correct position when using the fins.”
“I have noticed a great improvement in my kick and have really enjoyed the way they work the legs and buttocks. I have a mobility disability and find that the fins make my swim a lot more comfortable. One great thing is being able to share them – much easier than with conventional flippers! But, I am a bit reluctant ’cause I love them so much.”
Lorri’s workouts with his shinfin fins give him a more balanced body position and a stronger kick. This gives him a huge improvement in his fitness swimming workout and he feels the diagonal balance between his arms and legs. Now he can even use hand paddles without a pull buoy. Furthermore, his kick is stronger, even when he takes his fins off. He also uses them for diving and snorkeling in the ocean.
Lorri’s review from Santa Fe, USA
“I can’t say enough good things about them, I will definitely recommend shinfin fins to fellow swimmers. Many Thanks, Lorri”
