Bowswim Resistance Swimming System 4.9 5 20 20
Bowswim Resistance Swimming System I HAVE BEEN WAITING YEARS FOR THIS!!! I have a pool at my house- however, it's only 32' long and so it's difficult to get much of a workout before I hit the end of the pool and have to make a turn...it's tedious doing it over and over again. With Boswim I can swim to my heart's content without having to contend with the end of the pool. And what a workout it is!!!! I actually get an intense, consistent, and aerobic workout with this gear. And what adds an extra bonus is that it's non-impact which makes it perfect for my now arthritic knees! Thank you, Bowswim!!!! May 30, 2011
The Pool equivilent of an Elliptical Cross-trainer I was lucky enough to already have pre-drilled holes for an un-used pool safety fence that so happen to be the perfect size. My pool is 15' x 32' but i much prefer not to have to turn direction all the time while swim-exercising. After ordering I had a bit of buyers remorse due to the price, but once I got it home and used it for the first time I was hooked! If i use this for an hr a day, I can get a complete body workout without feeling like I was "working out". That is until I use my limbs to pull myself out of the water, then I feel the workout I got LOL! If you want to add a great alternative to a regular gym workout, this is an amazing tool. The waist belt is extremely comfortable to wear, even if you have sensitive skin like me. If you have a pool, this is a better investment than almost any workout equipment if you already have an elliptical machine for days you can't swim. Would also be a great tool for any swim instructors teaching a new swimmer or for building swimming strength. My only complaint I can think of is that the carrying case liner isn't very well made. Mine tore after the first storing of my bowswim. Carefully placed & secured in its spot, then walked inside my house 20ft max to be stored on a shelf inside my home. Mind you, the outer skin of the case is of quality luggage grade... just the interior lining is a bit flimsy. But the actual bowswim equipment is of the highest caliber, and I do not fear of it snapping & injuring me(i'm a bit of a hypochondriac ). July 9, 2011
Bowswim, an excellent workout! I have been using Bowswim for several months now, and have only fabulous things to say about the product. Bowswim has improved both my cardiovascular endurance and muscle strength, and I have been getting compliments about how great my arms, legs, and abs are looking. This ingenious product has turned my tiny backyard pool into an endless lap pool, with the added benefit of no-impact resistance training! The resistance makes a Bowswim workout more effective than a regular swimming workout, and it is also an absolutely enjoyable experience. I always look forward to my Bowswim workouts, and couldn't be happier that I am getting such an excellent and gratifying workout in the privacy of my own backyard. I highly recommend this product to anyone who would like to take their physical fitness to new levels! June 12, 2011
Even better than I expected What a great workout! Bowswim is even better and more comfortable than I expected. Quality construction! I have just started to use it now to teach my little girls to swim. I love it, they love it! May 4, 2011
Excellent Swimming Tool We have this installed, and it is very easy to use. I have to lose weight quick, and this is helping me do it. Eating less helps too, lol. But this Bowswim is much better than my treadmill, and affects my whole body. Best yet, I am outside in the sun exercising, and feels great! April 1, 2014
Bowswim Attention Swimmers: I grew up in water and was a competitive swimmer. I own a 16 x 32 pool and couldn't do laps without turning every 2 seconds, so I got this. WoW. This is great. It forces you to pull and kick as if you were in a meet because if you don't, you loose your pocket ... stroke perfectionist. So, in keeping my air pocket and not having to lift my head, I pull and kick to the point that just one workout caused me to fall in love with Bowswim. Wish I'd invented this ... or that it was around when I swam competitively. Great workout, great product. 100% will never live without it. June 21, 2012
Bowswim I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis over 20 years ago and have noticed a decrease in my stability, gait and endurance in the past couple of years. As my legs weaken, I know how very important it is to exercise and strengthen my muscles, and yet heat is the number one enemy of MS. I have had my Bowswim for about two months now and absolutely love it! I am able to perform endurance exercises in my pool and never get over- heated, which is showing results already in my ability to walk unaided for longer periods of time and without so much exhaustion.

Finally enjoying the pool for more than just play! Swimming is marvelous exercise. It doesn't take medical training to realize that swimming is fantastic exercise for people of all ages: - no pounding or grinding on the joints - fit and sedentary, old and young, thin and fat alike can swim - swimming works the whole body, building muscle, burning fat, exercising the heart I recommend swimming for patients with old arthritic knees and backs and such. I myself love to swim in the wide open space of lakes. A small family-sized recreational pool at home is great for relaxing and splashing with the kids, but home pools always disappointed me because I couldn't use them for exercise swimming. I am no longer disappointed. Bowswim makes real swimming immediately possible and enjoyable. Just like the pictures and videos show, bowswim comfortably and effectively supports me at the waist so that I can swim naturally for as long as I want despite having a small pool. I considered the Endless Pool approach, but that involved tremendous expense, no support, no local no-how, electric power near the pool, and it all scared me away. I heard about bowswim from a local pool company, found it on the web, and was thrilled that it perfectly gives me what I was hoping for, a real swimming experience. I may get old and have to stop running, but I hope to swim for many years here at home. Bowswim gives the chance to do so. Joshua MD, Binghamton Thanks, love the product, very very happy with it!

Answer: 
Yes, it requires some drilling. We have a wooden deck around our above ground pool. On instructions from the manufacturer, my husband sunk a pressure treated 4x4 one foot into the ground with Quikcrete under the pool deck. He then drilled through the deck into the 4x4 and sunk the anchor to hold the Bowswim into the hole. No problems.
