Swim Training with Vasa Gets Results

“If your dryland program does not include Vasa, then it’s missing a key ingredient.”

Discover how Vasa training tools will elevate your coaching.

Coaches need reliable training tools that help their swimmers develop proper stroke technique and build swim-specific strength, power & speed at the same time. That’s why for over 25 years, coaches in the know require the versatility and effectiveness of Vasa Trainers and Swim Ergs. Three quarters of all swim team members selected for the 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2012 US Olympic teams train on Vasa equipment. This is because Vasa dry land swim training stimulates the muscles’ structural and functional changes required to swim stronger, better and faster.

The framework of the Vasa Trainer and the Swim Erg provides a biomechanical advantage unlike any other swim training method. It sets up the proper stroke path and biofeedback loop that allows coach & swimmers to make critical corrections, all while increasing fitness. The Swim Erg’s precision Power Meter motivates athletes in training by showing Left / Right power balance, stroke rate, pace and other feedback metrics required for successful swimming.

As a coach, you know that poolside environments are harsh and corrosive. Vasa equipment is specifically engineered to hold up under extreme conditions and continual use. Properly cared for, these machines will help your team grow stronger season after season.

Every Vasa product has been engineered to withstand heavy use by swimming programs worldwide. They require very little maintenance, all of which can easily be performed using basic hand tools.

We’re proud of our legendary Customer Service and Technical Support teams and we are always excited about assisting you with advice and solutions to help you achieve your goals.

“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.”

Olympic swimmer and coach Glenn Mills reveals why using the Vasa Swim Erg efficiently develops power & correct technique.
