Proper stroke & breathing & position: triathlon training fins


Triathlon training with shinfinTM fins streamlines Charles’ body position, balances his breathing, lengthens his stroke and properly uses the larger muscles in his glutes. This all happens because shinfinTM fins lift his body more horizontal, train more powerful kicking from his hips and give him correct freestyle timing. Most importantly, this transfers to give him a faster, smoother and more efficient freestyle technique.

Charles’ review from Queens, USA

“In a nutshell, I luv em! My shinfinTM fins recruit the larger muscle groups in my glutes. So I am now using less energy for the same amount of distance. They assist me in developing a feel for proper body position in the water. I was able to stretch out and really get a feel of my stroke. So I could definitely feel a better balance as far as my breathing goes. Which in turn encourages me to lengthen my stroke. WAY COOL! I am definitely improving. I was able to keep proper form for a longer period of time. Thanks for such an innovative product.”

Streamlined body & stronger kick: competitive Masters fins


Two main benefits that shinfinTM fins give Paraic, are a more streamlined body position and a more efficient stronger kick. Most importantly, these benefits transfer to give him a better swim style without fins too. So he uses them for his Masters swimming training and swim technique improvement. He also bought a second pair for another Masters swimmer.

Paraic’s review from Portmarnock, Ireland

“I’m using them for competitive Masters swimming. I find my body position has improved significantly when swimming freestyle! Giving a more streamlined position, when I take off the fins I feel my leg kick is stronger and more efficient.”

Comfortable exercise swim training fins


shinfinTM fins intensify Tom’s swim training exercise and he finds them very comfortable with no clunkiness, unlike regular foot fins. Flip turns improve by entering the turn a bit harder. He trains in a pool and also in more open water in his large outdoor pond.

Tom’s review from New York, USA

“I find them ingenious in design and very helpful in swimming. One knows they are there, but just at the edge of awareness. There is not the least bit of clunkiness to them. Works really well and very comfortable on my feet, unlike normal flippers. I use them to make the exercise of swimming a little more intense. Chiefly in a 100 meter pond on our farm upstate and in a pool here in NYC at NYU where I work as a professor. I do hope they become widely known and used. Great invention.”

Fine tuning swimming technique fins


When Mark uses his shinfinTM fins for fine tuning his swim technique, he feels them giving him a better natural swimming movement. When he uses them for his swimming drills, he feels them giving him a better workout in his main leg muscles. This is because they encourage a smooth swimming style with power from his hips. Perhaps most importantly, he feels his swim technique improvements with shinfinTM fins transfer to his natural swimming without fins too.

Mark’s review from Auckland, New Zealand

“Gives a better natural swim movement and better workout to the main muscles. And yes, the benefits transfer between “no-fins” swimming. Great Product. Thanks.”

Help weak freestyle kick pool training fins


Pool training with shinfin fins helps Guy to improve his weak freestyle kick. They train a proper freestyle kick with power from his hips, using the stronger muscles in his thighs and torso.

Guy’s review from London, UK

“My weak spot is my freestyle kick, and the fins certainly do ‘what it says on the tin’, and have helped a lot.”
