Bowswim Resistance Swimming System is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Swiming Training Device Bowswim is an elegant solution to an old problem: How does a serious swimmer get a decent workout in a small pool? As an open water swimmer, I was skeptical that the natural action of gliding and lift that you experience, as you move through the water, would be possible in a stationary position. It's an amazing product! Tension against the tether cord causes the body to lift much in the same way it experiences lift by passing through water. The only sensory difference is that because the swimmer is not moving, you feel more resistance, as you pull your arms through the stroke. The effect is similar to the workout you get with webbed gloves used in strength training. The benefit is the same. The simple design is ideal for travel. The telescoping rod allows the case to fit in the overhead compartment on flights. The quality components ensure durability and long life. I have been using the system for three years, and it still works and looks like new! I have only had to replace the belt, which fastens with a Velcro strap that will wear with use. Otherwise this is a lifetime investment in good health. It is far superior to anything I was doing in the gym on standard equipment, because as any swimmer knows... Swimming is the best full body workout.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bow swim Very cool product! I love being able to go out in my backyard pool and swim like this! Installation was a bit cumbersome and the rope arrived frayed. Otherwise it is a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bowswim I have had my Bowswim for about 3 months and love it! The owner personally came and installed it for me. He also gave me some very helpful tips about how to use the resistance swim outfit and how to take care of it. The excercises one can do with this very simple system are diverse and not at all limited to swimming. It gives a good workout which provides for cardiovascular benefits as well as for muscle training. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This product is great! I had wanted to incorporate swimming into my exercise regiment but our kidney shaped pool was too small to swim laps. Because the bow swim was reasonably priced, I figured I would try it. Better than expected! The inventor included his phone number on the invoice, so I was able to speak with him about the best way to install the anchor in our brick pool deck. It took about 1/2 hour to dig out one brick, drill into the concrete deck below, and install. Because the anchor sits flush, we are able to place the brick back over the anchor when not in use. The workout is great- the faster you swim the more resistance there is. There is no reason to spend thousands on a lap pool-this is the answer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bowswim is the bomb When we built our new pool, we were going to put in one of those mechanical water resistance systems. Our builder said that Bowswim was a much better option: works great, looks fine, doesn't make a sound, doesn't break and costs WAY less. What an undertatement. Swimming with Bowswim is the bomb. The harder you swim, the greater the resistance. As soon as you start swimming you forget it's even there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Have used my Bowswim for 2 weeks and I love it! Perfect for all levels. I am a former competitive swimmer who is rehabbing after an injury and the Bowswim is perfect for now as well as for when I am ready for a more rigorous workout. I even got a bonus!! The inventor of the Bowswim lives very close to me so he came to my home and personally installed for me!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Used item To my surprised, this item arrived in used condition. Item on itself is of excellent quality, but the one I order from here is noticeable used . Will not purchase from Frontgate again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

How is it installed? Does it require drilling into the pool deck?

Asked by: Diane1
Yes, you need a 1 inch concrete drill bit. If you have a sand base, you could probably just sink a plastic 1 inch pipe a foot or two down and then if it didn't seem secure add a little kwik crete. That's what we were going to do if there wasn't concrete under our brick pool deck.

I need to replace the belt only as the Velcro is not holding.

Can I purchase just the belt?

I have several umbra and volleyball sleeves around the deck that are 1" x 3". Would these work or would I still need to install the included anchor?

Asked by: VNtomball
Thank you for your interest in Frontgate. We can only recommend using the anchor included with the Bowswim Swimming System, for best results.
