have much experience swimming in open water and was
therefore very uncomfortable training or competing anywhere
other than a pool. But, I tried the SwimSafe last weekend at
Walden Pond in Concord, MA, and I comfortably did several 10
minute repeats to the middle of the pond and back. I was so
comforted by the SwimSafe that I could relax and focus on my
stroke, instead of worrying about drowning.
I just finished my first triathlon, and was
going to quit the sport, but with SwimSafe, I don't have to.
I was so happy when I saw that something like SwimSafe
existed! Training for the swim in a pool did not prepare me
for the open-water , and it was quite the reality check.
SwimSafe will allow me to start training in open waters, and
not just the pool.
for shipping SwimSafe overnight. My wife is very nervous
about participating in her first open water triathlon. With
SwimSafe she will be able to focus on swimming and relax
during the race.
I had a participant in my open-water training
class who weighed around 250 pounds. He said he did not feel
SwimSafe would float him if he had to deploy it in an
emergency. I gave him my SwimSafe and let him try it out.
Much to his surprise , when he deployed SwimSafe, it floated
him easily. Your product works!
I train in a lake behind my house, towing a
pool buoy strapped to my ankle. The strap cuts my ankle, and
makes it difficult to swim. Since SwimSafe is light and
compact, I can now train easily. Your product will allow me
to train more often, more efficiently, and swim longer
SwimSafe is the answer for my open-water swim training. Now
I can swim as often and as long as I want without worrying
about it. Plus my wife feels better about me training with
I sometimes do
the swim and I sometimes chicken out. I usually go to a race
and visually survey the swim course, and if I feel there is
not enough safety support in the water I don't race. I am
now pregnant and want to be extra careful. With SwimSafe I
don't have to worry about the swim anymore. What a great
product! I will definitely tell my friends, and the people I
meet swimming about SwimSafe.
SwimSafe is the
edge I need when I train in the ocean. I can't even tell I
have SwimSafe on, yet it gives me a sense of peace, and
allows me to swim confidently. Using SwimSafe just makes
of the review of SwimSafe in USA Triathlon Life was
perfect. I had just qualified for the IronMan in
Hawaii. I have been there before and the last time got
a bad calf cramp while swimming before the race. While
I obviously survived it could have been other wise and I
often thought that what is needed is a small version of
an inflatable PFD. I will be feeling a bit more secure
this year using SwimSafe!
