What is the Swimmer's Snorkel?
The Swimmer's Snorkel is a patented front-mount snorkel designed specifically for swimmers and can be worn with any standard swimming goggle. At its most basic level, the Swimmer's Snorkel allows a swimmer of any ability to relax in the water and maintain a completely laid out, horizontal position. The key benefit to this is the ability for the person to breathe naturally and rhythmically. This skill is the most critical aspect for novice level swimmers to master. The ability to be laid out, completely horizontal and relaxed is beneficial to all levels of swimmers, as it allows people to swim at normal or even slower speeds while maintaining a full range of motion.
Why do I need the Swimmer's Snorkel?
Many of the fastest swimmers in the world use the center-mount Swimmer's Snorkel in practice every day. For people with poor technique, the effect from using the snorkel can be dramatic - from a floppy, sloppy stroke to battleship stability in one lap!
It is a beneficial training tool for beginners, tri-athletes, masters and recreational swimmers. The Swimmer's Snorkel allows swimmers to concentrate on body balance, head position and stroke technique by eliminating the breathing cycle rotation. Greater emphasis and promotion of proper body alignment, complete axis rotation and arm stroke pattern are automatic once the Swimmer's Snorkel is incorporated into the swimmer's training regimen. Instantly, the swimmer will glide through the water without worrying about turning to breathe, enabling an improved and uniform stroke.
