Zealous Soulawakening

“I'm a dreamer. I have to dream and reach for the stars, and if I miss a star then I grab a handful of clouds.”

-Mike Tyson

When it comes to striving for what you want in life there is no step to small or large. Each and every day you have to put in the work, so that you can get just a little bit closer to that day you've been dreaming of all this time.

This means sweat. It means time. It definitely means expending energy. In the end when you take hold of that star all of the effort you put in will be worth it. In fact, you may look back at the effort you put in as the most enjoyable part of the adventure.

In the spirit of reaching for the stars Zealous released a whole new line dedicated to the splendour of the night time sky. Make no mistake though, the designs of these swimsuits are not sleepy and restful, but rather they are made with energetic and vibrant colours that will revive your attitude with every stroke.

You’ll be ready to shoot for the moon with this inspiring print that will make each and every stroke feel like a day dream.

Wait a second, we were supposed to be explaining how ugly the swimwear is! Whoops! Okay, back to that.

Next up is the disgusting looking Dolfin Gidget One Piece Swimsuit. This nightmare of a one piece is covered in swirling pastel colours outlined by white lines. This scary looking one piece will have you crying for your mama. The light blue and white stripes of the straps complements the pattern in such a way that you’ll want to look away as quickly as possible.

Lastly and least is the Doflin Poppy One Piece Swimsuit. This one piece features an explosion of colours that will make you want to run and hide for your life.

On The Prowl With Dolfin Womens And Girls Swimwear

Prowler

Sneaking slowly through the pool, the swimmer approaches their target. Little does the unsuspecting swimmer know, the hand on top of the head clearly represents a shark fin. This game of Jaws is about to get serious. The stalk of the prey is finally about to pay off after the long journey through the pool.

Then the whistle blows! Oh no, it is time for a break from the pool. How unfair that the adults get to continue swimming, but now you are forced into a land of exile filled with the re-application of sunscreen, ice cream, pizza and napping on a towel. Life is hard out there for a chlorine-water shark, but someone has got to do the job.

Luckily, there is a swimwear brand that understands the unique camouflage needs of a pool shark! Dolfin has created a line of swimming pool camouflage that will help you blend perfectly into the pool and summertime fun. With Dolfin swimwear you have a wide variety of options on top of these, but we’re particular fond of them. That is why we’ve got a whole blog post dedicated to them.

Without further ado, let us give you a little introduction to this special release from Dolfin.

For the pink lovers, we have a special piece of swimwear that is going to make you squeal in delight. The Dolfin Prowler Pink One Piece Swimsuit is covered with pink strips and a myriad other colours to create an eye popping design. When a lady wants her pink, this is definitely one of the images she has in mind. While this swimwear may not help you blend into the blue of the water it will help you hide among all the tropical coloured beach umbrellas and blankets.

For those who are really looking for a swimsuit that’ll help them win at jaws, they’ll love the blue hue of the Dolfin Prowler Blue One Piece Swimsuit. This lovely one piece features nice straps that allow complete movement of the back and shoulders, so that when at play in the pool swimmers are unhibited to go their fastest to get their snack of smaller fish. The Dolfin Prowler Blue One Piece is the perfect piece of swimwear for tom girls who are always playing hard when they are at the pool.

Now that you've got the low down on these two fabulous pieces of swimwear you are equipped to make the best decision for your swimming game strategy this summer. There is a whole summer of fun ahead, well at least for some of us in the world, so it is time to prepare for having a blast. Long days, long swims and tons of fun await us at the pool this year.

P.S. If you aren't into the prowler design of swimwear then check out the other options here at swimmer.com.au. We have tons and tons of great swimwear for everyone in the whole family!

That is why each and every year we feature their swimwear on our website, because we just can’t simply get enough.

For the ladies take a gander at the:

Without further ado, let us tell you about the five unbeatable features of all these pieces of brand new swimwear from Funky Trunks and Funkita:

  1. Swimwear Made For Swimmers By Swimmers
    The founders of Funky Trunks opened up shop basically to create a design for mens trunks that was more comfortable to wear in the pool. The resulting design is the one they still use today in the mens and boys trunks, but even beyond their signature cut, they’ve tried to stick to the same philosophy of creating comfortable and practical swimwear.
  2. Fast-Drying Swimwear
    This is nothing worse than having to deal with a piece of swimwear that seems to absorb all the water in the pool. Funky designed a special material that does not absorb as much water, so that it dries rather quickly after getting out of pool. This also means less wringing out of the swimwear, so that it will last longer than other swimwear options.
  3. High Definition Colour Fastness
    Part of what makes Funky Trunks and Funkita stand out from other brands are their uniquely colourful and crazy designs. With their High Definition Colour Fastness these design are even sharper in the pool creating a stand out look that is great for swim practice or a day at the beach.
  4. Swimwear That Retains It Shape
    Have you ever had swimwear that just seems to droop in all of the wrong places? Funky’s signature swimwear material has shape retentive properties meaning that it stretches then snap back into place with each and every use. This result is a piece of swimwear that lasts a lot longer with optimal functionality.
  5. Chlorine-Resistant Swimwear
    The material of the Funky brand is chlorine resistant, so that even if you plan on spending a tremendous amount of time in the pool, the colours and shape of the swimwear will hold up to the challenge.

Like the sound of all this? Then check out all of the Funky Trunks and Funky Swimwear we have to offer at our website.

How Training Equipment Can Make You A Better Swimmer

EQUIPMAIN

Swimming is a sport where athletes are constantly evolving their technique. The movement of every stroke, kick and undulation impacts the results, so athletes spend hours upon hours training to refine and perfect their strokes. A big part of training effectively is learning how to integrate training equipment into the regular swimming repertoire.

This guide will briefly go over how to use training equipment properly and what some of the benefits are to swimmers.

Training Equipment Guide

  1. Kickboards

Why Use A Kickboard

Like all swimwear equipment, the kickboard helps swimmers to get a more well-rounded cardiovascular workout. The kickboard allows swimmers to focus on working their legs, hips and stomach for technique. Also, it allows the arms to rest if they’ve been put through a particularly vigorous regime.

How To Use

There are a variety of ways to use a kickboard to help work on your swim technique, but the basic position is to grip the rounded of the board with your hands. The elbow rests near the square end of the kickboard. Although a lot of your body is on the kickboard, you want to avoid leaning on it as much as possible, because this means you’re working a lot less.

What Type Of Kickboard To Use

We recommend the Speedo Elite Kickboard Red which offers an ergonomic design with optimal buoyancy.

  1. Snorkels
    Why Use A Snorkel
    A snorkel allows swimmers to focus on their stroke rather than needing to worry about breathing. This is especially beneficial for freestyle since it allows swimmers to practice on focusing on starring at the bottom of the pool rather than breathing from side to side.

How To Use A Snorkel

Properly place the strap of the snorkel around your head and adjust to the appropriate size. Place the end of the snorkel in your mouth with the rubber inside. Immerse head underwater and inhale and exhale.

What Type Of Snorkel To Use

The perfect snorkel for swimmers is the Arena Center Snorkel Black which offers swivel head support, padding on head support and is made from liquid silicone & PVC for a comfort, stable and high quality piece of swim equipment.

  1. Fins/Flippers

Why Use Fins/Flippers?

Using fin/flippers offer numerous benefits to swimmers. They enhance flexibility and the cardiovascular workout of swimming. They give a swimmer the feeling that they’re moving fast through the water, and it is a lot of fun. Also, the flippers help swimmers improve their swim position, so they can begin to feel what it is like to swim with proper form.
How To Use Fin/Flippers

Place the fins securely on your feet. Kick as you would normally to use the flippers. Caution: Do not get too used to using flippers, because they can actually change your form for the worse.

What Type Of Flippers To Use? 

The Speedo BioFuse Training Fins are especially engineered to increase a swimmers speed through the water. The dual density of the Biofuse Flippers offers a stiff blade yet a soft, comfortable foot pocket making these flippers perfect for extended use at swim practice.

  1. Paddles 

Why Use Paddles

Paddles take the hands out of the equation of swimming, so that swimmers can focus on their arm technique. A similar way to emulate this equipment is to make a fist or squeeze a tennis ball by swimming, but the paddles make it so swimmers propel more accurately through the water by providing a cup to push the water back.

How To Use Paddles

Place hands inside of the paddles then preform the desired stroke. Make sure to not overuse the swim paddles, because they do put extra strain on the shoulders.

What Type Of Paddles To Use?

We recommend using the Speedo Biofuse Powerpaddle Set which is specifically engineered for maximum comfort and fit. The ergonomic design allows swimmers to grip without hand fatigue. The stiff plastic blade swishes through the water with a large amount of speed and power.

  1. Pull Buoys

Why Use Pull Buoys

A pull buoy allows a swimmers to focus on the action of the arms to move forward by isolating the hips and thigh. This increases arm strength, shoulders, chest and core.

How To Use A Pull Buoy

Hold the pull buoy in between the thighs. The hips and legs will float at the surface of the water. Use your arms to pull yourself forward. Be careful not to overuse this tool, because it can result in poor form with an arching in the lower back.

Which Type Of Pull Buoy Should I Use?

We recommend choosing between the Zoggs Pull Buoy and Vorgee 4 Layer Blue & Aqua Pull Buoy.

Go Ahead And Check Out Our Swim Equipment Training Section

We offer the best of the best swimming training equipment out there, so go ahead and check it out to see what you find. All of these pieces of equipment can help take you to the next level in your swimming game!
