What Olympians, professional and top collegiate champs are saying:

Matt Kredich
Head Swimming Coach, University of Tennessee

““I am a strong proponent of the use of swim trainers, specifically the Vasa Trainer swim bench as a multidimensional tool for helping to develop swimmers. I have been using them to train swimmers for 21 years, and have seen two significant benefits: one in the specific strength of the swimmers’ pull, and the second in the understanding of proper swimming mechanics that comes from doing things the right way on the Vasa.””

“I really like to use the Vasa Trainer for working on my freestyle tempo with one arm at a time, as well as with both arms. I like to work on high elbows, which is very important to catch the pool... The Vasa Trainer gives you both flexibility and strength in your muscles. It is very close to what you are doing in the pool, it's almost the same thing... It is very important to have flexibility in your muscles, to have long, lean muscles, especially for long course. Vasa really helps you develop that flexibility.”

2000 Olympic Gold Medalist, 3-Time World Record Holder Lenny Krayzelburg

“Well, I thanked you last year when I first got back into competitive swimming because I had just posted 4 top 20 National Times after being out of swimming for 20 years. That was on 6 months of training and religious Vasa Trainer workouts. A year later at that same meet (Orlando SCM Fall Invitational), I won 6 out of 6 events, 3 overall wins, and broke 3 Florida State Masters records in the process. The Vasa Swim Trainer is the cornerstone of my dry land training. I can't believe everyone doesn't own one of these, but I'm glad they don't. THANK YOU, and once again, GREAT MACHINE!!!”

Jerry Dawson, Oakland, CA

“I just wanted to thank you for inventing the greatest surf accessory ever. I'm an internist in Orange, California and have been surfing most of my life. This machine continues to amaze me. My paddling muscles have never been this conditioned. My job keeps me out of the water most days, but it’s like I never miss a good swell with the Vasa Trainer. Keep up the good work and customer service.”

A. Abdelhadi, M.D., Orange, CA
