Diana Chlorine Resistant Kneelengths

Finding the perfect style of kneelength training suit can be quite the challenge. Some designs of these swimsuits are just way too loud, and they are covered with tacky decoration from the knees to the straps! While others kneelength training suits are just too plain with just black and nothing else. How boring!

We thought that Diana struck a fantastic balance between too much and too little to create their tasteful line of kneelength training suits that come in two fun designs. We wanted to take the time to introduce these fabulous new kneelength training suits that are perfect for swim training, aqua aerobics and general pool use. The unique material of the Diana swimsuits makes the material last longer and dry faster, so this is a swimsuit you’ll have around for a long time!

First up is the futuristic design of the Galactic Kneelength Chlorine Resistant Training Suit. This training suit features an aquatic laser shooting across right side of the training suit in Galactic Blue Kneelength or Galactic Purple Kneelength. The neon of the design stands out from the black of the rest of the training suit. The Diana logo is scrolled tastefully across the laser in cursive to create an out of this world look. Perfect for ladies who like a splash of neon to liven up their workout!

Next we have the whimsical daisy design of the Daisy Kneelength Chlorine Resistant Training Suit. A light purple floral design with stripes gently graces the bust of this kneelength training suit. The Diana logo is scrolled countless times in fun falling letters in the background of this design. For those of you in the United States, this is a perfect style of swimsuit to welcome in spring. Even when the seasons change again, who doesn’t want to relish the wonderful weather of spring everyday by wearing this Diana kneelength training suit?

Stay tuned to our blog to hear all about the latest styles and trends in athletic swimwear fashion.

-Happy Swimming!

Star Light Star Bright Shine in Zoggs Swimwear

Zoggs Swimwear

Zoggs Swimwear is continuing a program in 2014 to get kids in the UK hyped about swimming by sponsoring days filled with water sports ranging from racing to water polo. The Oceans of Fun Programs motivation is to get kids more active, and better yet, more interested in playing in the water. We at swimmer.com.au think that this program definitely deserves two thumbs up, because we can’t imagine a childhood (or an adulthood) not spent enjoying the joys of splashing around in the pool.

We weren’t too surprised to see them come out with athletic swimwear that is star-themed given the stellar performance of the company. When you get high performance Zoggs swimwear, you are investing in a company that gives back to the swimming community. Let us tell you a little bit more about their new star-themed swimwear line that was just released this summer.

The Zoggs Womens Star One Piece Swimsuit features a multitude of colour of striped stars dancing across a purple background. Racerback straps provide extra support for athletic and fitness swimming, so you can feel comfortable with lots of laps in the pool. This design is perfect for ladies who want a style with bright colours for the time they spend working hard in the pool.

For all the girls out there, there is the Girl Stars one piece swimsuit that features pink, white and blue stars in various fun designs. Pink racerback straps add a little bit of girliness to this look that is great for swim practice. The Zoggs logo is scrolled in pink letters on the hip. This look is great for girls who are stars underwater and on solid land.

For all the boys out there, they can check out the loud star patterns on the Boys Red Drummond Trunks and Boys Green Drummond Trunks. The print of these trunks is covered with bold stars to create an intricate design. These trunks are perfect for guys who plan to be the star of their next swim meet.

Remember that all of Zoggs swimwear is made with 100% chlorine-resistant material, so this swimwear is built to last a lot of hours in the pool. Zoggs is the perfect brand for swimmers who would be in the water all day long if things like work and school didn’t stop them.

Channel Your Inner Aztec Warrior with The Finals Swimwear

ChlorineResistant6

The Finals released a new range of chlorine resistant swimwear that features brilliantly coloured prints inspired by Aztec art. The patterns of each one piece has neon geometric designs on a black background that makes for a fierce look for training, swim meets or even just lounging by the pool.

For those of you don’t know about the Aztecs, they were an unstoppable civilization that occupied current day Mexico. If it had not been for small pox and other diseases the Europeans contracted to them, it is likely the civilization would still be around today. The Aztec people were an advanced civilization with education, sports, art and laws, but they were also definitely tough warriors that gave the Spanish conquerors a tough time. Despite a lowered population and primitive weapons, the Aztecs almost beat the Spaniards, but unfortunately they were defeated by the Spanish Conquistador Hernán Cortés.

Anyone who has ever been to a swim meet can relate to the Aztecs, because no matter how good you are there is always someone who can beat you. In the end only one swimmer can take away a victory from each race. Only by giving it all, like the Aztecs did, can you find out who will be the first to touch out. Unlike the Aztecs, you can work harder to succeed at the next match if you lose.

If you have the determination to give it all, then the Aztec one piece from The Finals is for you. These one pieces are available in womens and girls, so no matter what your age you can let your inner warrior out into the pool. These one pieces come in a variety of shades and colour, so let us tell you about the different options available.

For swimmers looking for swimwear that matches the colour of the water, you’ll enjoy the aqua tones of the Aztec Blue & Green One Piece. The background alternates whimsically between aqua blue and sea green.

For those who want a fiery look, you’ll find a perfect match in the Aztec Black & Orange One Piece. A fiery orange is balanced out with a midnight black that will help you easily access all of the passion you have to do your best in the pool.

If you like a colourful look, we think you’ll enjoy the Aztec Multicolour One Piece. Ruby red, forest green, blue and green make up strips of the background to create a unique look that looks great in the water.

Not into any of these designs or colour? Then make sure to check out the rest of the one pieces The Finals released this October at swimmer.com.au. We especially liked their Funnies Range that features a bunch of sparkly and unique designs.

Funnies2

All of these fun prints are available in girls one pieces and womens one pieces, so make sure to check each design out!

Welcome to the Jungle

Only the tough can survive among the animals of the jungle, but we think you are cut out to swing in the vines with Tarzan. The Jungle One Piece takes swirls of animal prints in rainbow colours to create an absolutely wild design. Ever seen a pink tiger? Neither have we, but the stunningly hot pink tiger print looks amazing. Great for girls who have a bit of a wild side they like to let loose in the pool.

Panic at the Disco

Do you just love shiny disco balls? You are going to like the print of the Puzzle One Piece that is made of shards of a disco ball on a black background. The reflection of this blinged out one piece is perfect for girls and women who like to shine at everything they do. When you pass your competitors in the pool they’ll be blinded by the light reflecting off your disco-ball-like one piece. Okay, we may be making that last part up, but you get the idea.

Every Girls is a Princess

Are you in touch with your inner princess? With the Princess One Piece you can let her out with this fabulous print that features every princess’ favourite colours: pink, purple and aqua blue. The colours all make a lovely abstract pattern that is fit for any future queen. This one piece is perfect for girls who like all the good things in life, including cute swimwear for the pool.

For the Ice Queens

All of this is on a chilly blue background that looks stunning in and out of the water. This is a perfect look for girls who want to freeze their competition in place.

Finishing is Everything

FinalsJammers1

College swimming coach and writer Matthew Allan hit the nail on the head when he wrote about swimming:

“In our sport it is natural and necessary to set up goals to inspire us. We all want to achieve the next level, the break-thru performance. What we (all of us) must not forget is that the journey to these goals is the best part. The daily process of obtaining success takes up the majority of our time and effort throughout our lives. Remember to appreciate what you’ve done in the past and what you are doing in the present on your way to higher goals. This will allow you to always strive for something more without missing out on the fact that your path to success is as much a starting point as it is a finish line.”

All swimmers know the importance of finishing. Whether it is finishing the last lap at practice or finishing at a meet, pushing to the end is the most important thing to all swimmers. Sacrificing any finish line, no matter how small, is as good as giving up. Just pushing halfway is just something that swimmers do not do.

So what keeps you going in water? Your family? Your team? Your dreams? The bar of chocolate you get after practice? Or is it your swimwear?

We at swimmer.com.au are obviously a little bias on this point, but we find that swimwear can serve as a symbol of everything that we want to be in and out of the water. The perfect piece of fitness swimwear makes you feel at home in the pool, but also represents something to remind you to give everything you’ve got.

With this reasoning we absolutely love The Finals swimwear. The Finals represents our end goal to be first at the touch out when it comes times to compete, and all of the steps it takes to become a champion. Let us introduce you to our favourite mens jammers from The Finals swimwear that has the potential to transform your performance in the pool if you allow it.

The Aztec Blue & Green Jammers and The Aztec Multicolour Jammers both serve as a totem to the strength of the powerful fallen empire of the South American civilization, the Aztecs. Channel the energy of warriors with these jammers. They also just happen to be chlorine resistant jammers that ensure the powerful look these jammers doesn’t fade after the first few visits to the pool.

The Onyx Green Jammers and Onyx Blue Jammers allow you to gather strength from the onyx stone that is forms inside of lava. Only under pressure and heat can you and the onyx stone truly reach your maximum potential for greatness. The sleek curved panel of the print is fired up with a colourful print that looks bad ass in the water.

Do you sometimes get a little too heated at swim matches, so much so that it throws off your game? In ancient times European soldiers used to use the amethyst stone to protect them in the battle field and keep them level headed. You can channel this ancient energy by getting the cooling Amethyst Jammers.

Access the Power of the Onyx Gemstone with The Finals Swimwear

ChlorineResistant5

The Finals released a new range of girls and womens one pieces called Onyx. The Onyx print takes the jagged and elaborate design of the onyx gemstone, but adds in splashes of fun colours to make things a little more exciting. The Onyx gemstone itself is just boring old black, so we were happy to see this update to the theme of the design by the creative team of The Finals. The change in colour certainly does not change the symbolic meaning behind Onyx gemstones.

Back in the day before modern medicine “doctors” used to think certain types of gemstones had metaphysical powers. If you had a cold they would go tell you to get a certain type of gem stone. If you wanted a healthy pregnancy, they would recommend another. It all really seems rather silly in a day in age where we have awesome things like antibiotics, prenatal care, etc.

However, modernity does not have to replace the powerful symbolism behind gemstones though. Even though we will not be running to the local quarry next time we aren’t feeling so great, we can still take away the positive meaning behind these stones to give us power. Even if it is a placebo, it can still work.

The Onyx stone had a particular powerful place to help people ward away negativity. As swimmers we all know about the negative voice in our head that gets down for us on losing, not getting the pool enough or any number of bad things. Dwelling on these bad things is terribly unhealthy for us. By ridding ourselves of negativity we boost our confidence and improve our performance. The fact is if you are distracted by negative thoughts you can’t put your focus on actually doing positive things, like swimming for example.

If you need a little extra boost to help you be happier, maybe you’ll find a great match in The Finals Onyx line of One Pieces. Let us introduce you to the different colours of the Onyx One Pieces.

The Onyx Green One Piece features a rainbow of shades of green. The neon shades of green on this one piece remind us of science fiction movies, like Star Trek. This is the perfect one piece for ladies who want to live long and prosper.

The Onyx Blue One Piece features icy tones of blue that will have you dreaming of a winter wonderland. Haven’t gotten enough of winter yet? Well you can revisit the snow, ice and cold with this one piece.

Are you a wild child? Then you will fall in love with the night life colours featured in the Onyx Purple One Piece. Access the part of you that wants to dance all night long, but make sure you still have the energy to swim all day.

Is one colour just not enough for you? Then check out the colourful Onyx Blue & Green One Piece. All of the shades of blue and green morph together to create an intricate design that is perfect for ladies who like a little bit of variety in their swimwear.

Or maybe you are a more liberal spirited family that lets the kids watch what they want for the most part. Either way you can have fun with Rivals new girls toddlers swimwear that set out to honour everyone’s favourite little Addams, Wednesday.

Wednesday’s character was known for her memorable role as the young daughter with a dark attitude like you can see in this scene from the Family Values where Wednesday pretends to not to be able to swim in order to not save her fellow camp mate. Wednesday knew how to bring the clouds out on any sunny day to make us all laugh at our own optimistic trifles.

The Wednesday Girls Tutu Cute One Piece captures some of the characters inner darkness with midnight black and hot pink. The cut of this one piece include a cute little skirt that compliments the striped-edgy look of this swimwear. Ruching on the chest of the swimwear gives the pattern a little extra fun texture. It is a perfect spooky look for little girls who love to twirl while working on their evillest laugh for Halloween.

For a cover up there is the Wednesday Girls Rash Shirt that features the same cute and black and pink colours of the one piece. A skull and bone decal with a girlie bow gives this look a frighteningly cute touch. To put a bit of punk rock style in it there are black and pink ruffle details on the long sleeves. Great for girls who love there scary things to come in pink!

If you and your little girl wished Halloween was more than once a year she is just going to love this creepy twist on swimwear. Who says a bit of Halloween Celebration can go on in the pool anyways? Happy Halloween from swimmer.com.au!

Halloween, Chick Flicks, Margaritas and Tropical Paradise All Packed in One Fabulous Piece of Swimwear

LimeInTheCoconut3

“Midnight Margaritas!!!” Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman screech together in bed in the famous scene from the chick flick Practical Magic. For those of you haven’t seen the movie it is about two witch sisters who are cursed to fall in love with men that die shortly afterwards. It is the perfect flick to get your prepared for Halloween which will be coming up before you know it. One memorable scene from Practical Magic is when the girls and their aunts dance to “The Lime and the Coconut” song while enjoying their “midnight margaritas”.

Rival’s Lime in the Coconut reminded us of that fun scene. There is so much more to this fitness swimwear from Rival than the reference to the great song! The print reminded us of all sorts of good things.

The stunning print features multi-coloured, photographic quality cubes juxtaposed together to create a one of a kind look. Each cube is stamped with black bold letters and numbers giving this look an extra bold feel. The photographs of the Lime in the Coconut swimwear all take a little snapshot of paradise. When all these views are combined together it makes one long for the humid and hot ocean breeze of the Caribbean.

There is a Lime in the Coconut for everyone in the family. This print is available in womens swimwear, mens swimwear, boys swimwear, and girls swimwear. Let us tell you about the high quality cuts that are available in from Rival.

Lime in the Coconut for the Ladies

For women you can get a classically cut one piece from the Lime in the Coconut Womens One Piece. The colourful photographic print is complimented with sassy black trimming. The medium leg and full front lining allows you to feel cosy and confident whenever you are at the pool.

For those women who like to show a little bit more skin, the Lime in the Coconut Womens Sports Bikini allows you to show off while you work hard in the pool. Full front lining and a hipster leg gives you full coverage where there is swimwear material. It lets you show off that swimmers body and your sense of wild style.

Lime in the Coconut for the Men

Don’t worry, we left some Lime in the Coconut for all the guys out there. The Lime in the Coconut Mens Trunks is perfect for guys who want a colourful print that is toned down a little bit with black bold accents. These trunks are made from 100% polyester and chorine resistant material that will keep their shape and colour even with long hours lapping in the pool.

Fall in Love with Rival’s Swimwear

Fall-In-Love-With-Rival

Love is a powerful force that can give us motivation in the pool. Whether it is love of swimming, family, friends, significant other or pet gold fish does not matter. Everyone’s famous Beattle and strong endorser of love John Lennon had a thing or two to say about love, but the following is one of our favourite quotes from the musician on the subject.

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all life has to offer with passion, excitement and acceptance.” John Lennon

When passion, excitement and acceptance fuel our swimming, it makes us better swimmers. Every swimmer faces a moment in their training that requires them to put aside negativity and push harder or just even get into the water.

Love is our favourite emotion, and it is too bad that Valentine’s Day only rolls around once a year. There is never a bad time to celebrate love in the world, (even if it is just the long-term relationship you have with the pool). You do not have to wait around until February for Cupid to prick you with one of his arrows thanks to Rival Swimwear, because you can fall in love with their athletic swimwear without first dates, love letters or any of that junk. This fall Rival Swimwear released a little bit of love for everyone to enjoy with their new range of fitness swimwear available in womens swimwear and girls swimwear.

Rival’s Cupid fitness swimwear takes all the good things about Valentine’s Day then puts them on a cute fashionable print featuring bright purple and chalk white hearts. The hearts cascade down the print up and down, occasionally overlapping. The crazy pattern of the hearts is just about as crazy as love can be. The only thing is missing is the chocolate.

In womens sizes you can embrace the Cupids Womens One Piece or the Cupid Womens Sports Bikini. The Cupid womens style is trimmed a dark purple that compliments the colours of the hearts. With 100% polyester, full front lining and thin straps the Cupid One Piece and Cupid Sports Bikini are perfect for those who want a bit of cutesy look for when they are putting in time at the pool.

For girls, there is the Cupid Girls Sports Bikini and Cupid Girls One Piece. The one piece features a trim that matches the rest of the print, so the swimwear actually appears to have no trim to make for an extremely unique look. The sports bikini is trimmed with a light purple that compliments the white and purple hearts of the print. Both of these are cuts for girl athletes who love the smell of chlorine in the morning, but wouldn’t mind adding something a little touch of girlieness to their kick butt style in the pool.
