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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I just put in a small pool and was originally going to put in a swim jet at the cost of 5K! Our pool guy told us to check out Bowswim online and I am glad we did! It allows you to not only swim against resistance but do so many exercises as well. I got the whole family using it! Best purchase I made towards my health! Thanks Bowswim for making small pool owners get in a physical workout!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really works We had guarded expectations for this swim harness. Once installed, it really works and is comfortable to use. For installation, we had to purchase the huge drill bit to drill in our concrete patio, but we found one to fit our current power drill. I recommend installing it in a side area of the pool if you have a spot, so others can use pool while this is in use, and also so it can be left in its hole - ready to use, but not in the way of general access to the pool itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Gift I bought this for Father's Day for my husband. He is 6'7 - so the average pool is hard fro him to really workout in. I bought this and he loves it. He really gets a great workout. We had to go to the hardware store and buy a steel pipe to fit the bowswim anchor in so it would fit in our pool umbrella hole. It works great so far. Only suggestion is if it came with a larger anchor to fit in existing pool holes. Overall great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bowswim, Best swimming workout ever! Simple to install and easy to use. It turns your average home pool into a super workout equivalent to a 50 meter pool. Enjoying it almost daily for 6 months!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product easy to use Just used my Bowswim for the first time today. We have a 12 x 24 above ground pool. My husband was able to easily install the anchor for the Bowswim in our wooden deck which wraps around the pool.. I could do any swim stroke or kickboard while using it. Much better than getting accross the pool in 6 strokes! Looking forward to getting some good excercise with it this summer, as is the rest of the family! Somebody should have thought of this sooner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 ).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BOWSWIM This is the greatest tool. It has allowed me to really get in shape for summer. I use it on a regular basis and so does my wife. The quality of this product is excellent and it is very easy to use. I am glad this product is available and I am going to buy one for my brother. He has a pool and he needs to get in shape. He loves to spend time in his pool so this should be the perfect gift for him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ingenious product!!!! The most incredibly versatile exercise product ever! My husband swims with a snorkel & gets his rigorous exercise while I prefer to keep my head above the water resting my arms & chin on a small kickboard & I work my legs & abs in countless different ways. It's easy & extremely user-friendly. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who has a pool!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bowswim As I have arthritis, water resistance exercise is the safest for my body. This is perfect for me. After just 2 weeks my endurance improved two fold, and I am steadier. It is an easy system to install and I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it What a great way to cross train with. The resistance swimming allows you to get in a great workout with out spending alot of time. I love to swim, but do not like to have to turn around once you get to the other end of the pool. This product allows you to swim at your pace without the interuptions of making the turn at the end of the pool. Enjoy your swim!

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.
