“SwimFast by KayakPro is an essential machine - it’s customizable, versatile, adjustable, It’s a great way to improve your swimming - Whether you working on your stroke, your catch, high-elbow entry or a cardio workout. It’s just a great machine.”
I can totally recommend my KayakPro SwimFast ergometer!
My SwimFast ergometer has given me the opportunity to train whenever I like to.
When I started in July, I could hardly do 30 second intervals on resistance level 0. Over the last couple of months my strength and stamina have increased tremendously. On top, the ergometer helps me to work on specific strength disbalances and technique, such as the early vertical forearm.
More than all and almost unbelievably, my Workouts and improvements on SwimFast transfer directly to the pool.
SwimFast has been great. Swimfast enables a training environment to create sport specific strength endurance in a way that I have been unable to mimic with a vasa and only came with years of consistent swimming in a pool. It enables a more efficient training process as I can do 2 sessions a week on the Swimfast (with 1 more in the pool to maintain feel) and am swimming at a level I was swimming in the pool 3x consistently.
I am so excited about my SwimFast ergometer that I needed to let others know. I’m a time crunched triathlete, with a family of four and own my own business. I am always looking for ways to optimize my training time and one of the biggest time issues I have is getting to a pool, especially during the pandemic. Since I started using the SwimFast I am able to work on my swim without having to go to the pool.
We bought a SwimFast in 2018. It arrived within 2 weeks from the US. Easy set up and excellent after sales and support.
We use it every day, as part of strength and conditioning, the gains have been really impressive, it targets exactly the muscles you need to “swim fast” which quickly transfers to PBs in the pool.
An essential item if you're serious about swimming, I would highly recommend SwimFast.
I received my SwimFast Pro ergometer assembled it and WOW! —what an amazing marvel of engineering and design!
I even posted a time lapse video of me assembling the erg on Instagram. It was so straightforward, and my kids couldn’t wait to help!
Whilst recovering from a shoulder injury, this superb machine will accelerate my recovery back to full strength and make up for lost time out of the pool.
We are in Hamilton, SwimFast ergometer became a mainstay for the team as part of their dryland training workouts. Both our coaches and athletes were especially impressed with the smoothness of the unit – the “airbrake” flywheel provides realistic resistance that’s similar to being in water and there’s no delay up at the front end of the stroke waiting for the “catch” phase.
We have bought 4 more since our original purchase.
SwimFast all the way! - I was going to order a Vasa but they couldn't put any of my credit cards through. So, I got a KayakPro SwimFast, I'm really glad of that choice! Comparing the details and performance the KayakPro is way better. Also, they were a pleasure to deal with. Oh, and the KayakPro looks a lot more Pro!
We love SwimFast - I love this kit., it is Mega.
When I can afford it will get another.
We see Triathlon as a strength endurance sport This piece of kit ticks all the boxes for swim specific strength, stimulating the right muscles groups.
Replacing half of my swims with the SwimFast Ergo.
I do all my strength work needed during my workouts as I don’t have time to do dumbbell reps when I only got 10 to 12 hours a week to train, I try and maximize my precious training time
I have to say a big thank you very much for organising the delivery of the KAYAKPRO SWIMFAST ERGOMETER machine & equipment which arrived early last week and we have put it all together and it works as good as all of the reviews say - it really is a fantastic piece of equipment and extremely efficient in simulating the entire swim stroke on dry land.
Wow! - Congratulations on such a great product I hope SwimFast gets even more popular. It’s the best stroke improvement tool there is (and I use in water headsets, multiple angle cams, etc.). I even get in the water to affect stroke changes. — but, having the swimmer out of the water watching the mirrors and readout of power and isolating each movement is essential to world class results. Again — great job! Feel free to quote me.
I love to swim but fall into the enthusiastic amateur category! In the last two years I have been swimming in an endless pool. Unfortunately with European Gas situation then German Government rules mean I have no choice but to switch off any heating to my pool over this Winter. Of course this is totally the correct action but has left me with no training option for the Winter period. As alternative I have purchased a Swimfast machine. This I received 3 weeks ago. It is great- it really excellent alternative to my daily swim. With the HALO attachment and the fantastically smooth overall mechanism then I can see it very much supports my technique build and training. Assuming I get my pool back in 2023 then I would see me using both Pool and Swimfast Machine in parallel for an enhanced and varied approach to my training.
KayakPro provided fantastic customer service starting on the day I ordered my SwimFast Erg and that great service continues today! When setting up my new erg, I contracted customer service with a question and promptly received a return call. KayakPro continued to communicate with me directly until a solution was reached. I love my new SwimFast Erg and would highly recommend KayakPro products!
I'm a two-time paralympic champion in athletics who transitioned to triathlon, currently preparing for the 2024 Paris Games.
Originally being a runner means that swimming is not my strong suit, but I'm working hard to improve that. I started using the SwimFast Ergometer at a coaches’ facility this summer and saw significant improvements in strengths and specific endurance, resulting in a 5th place at this year’s World Championships in Abu Dhabi.
I have reorganized my training setup at home to include a SwimFast as an invaluable resource.
Initially, I was debating between getting the KayakPro SwimFast Erg or another company’s ski erg. I decided to go with the swim erg - I have ZERO regrets! This machine is amazing! I initially had some minor technical issues, but the KayakPro team was very quick to respond, and they got everything resolved! If you are on the fence about buying this machine and wondering how close it emulates actual swimming, I am telling you that you will not regret this purchase and it is as close to swimming on land as you can get. I do recommend upgrading the regular handles to the full hand paddles.
