Andrew’s “Surreal” Swimming Lesson

0 comments
 
“Surreal,” deadpanned 13-year-old Andrew Li. He’d just stepped out of our Endless Pool Elite after a one-of-a-kind clinic with Olympian Alyssa Anderson here at our headquarters in Aston, PA.

As part of the Fitter & Faster Swim Tour, presented by SwimOutlet.com, Andrew won an Enhanced Private Lesson with Alyssa, who’s an Olympic gold medalist and 16-time All-American.

In our Endless Pool Elite, Andrew swam in place against a current adjustable to up to 0:51/100 yards. Alyssa, aided by the Elite’s underwater cameras and mirrors, could analyze every element of his stroke, giving precise pointers on his head position and hand entry. By the lesson’s end, he claimed that “it felt easier” to go faster than his slower pace had earlier!

The Fitter & Faster Swim Tour conducts swim clinics – from Hialeah, Florida, to Juneau, Alaska – for groups of young swimmers who learn exercises and competitive techniques from Olympians, medalists, national champions, and world-record holders. The Enhanced Private Lesson with Anderson was an exclusive bonus following Saturday’s Media, PA, clinic, which also boasted instruction from four-time Olympic medalist Peter Vanderkaay.

We had a great time hosting Andrew, his dad, Alyssa, and everyone on the Fitter & Faster team. It’s always a thrill to help develop the next generation of champions. Given all the progress he made in one day, we doubt that this will be the last we hear of Andrew Li, future swimming star!

Endless Pools Give Championship Swim Program an Edge

0 comments
 

SwimMAC Carolina wrapped up the 2011-2012 season with nearly 50,000 team points to earn the USA Swimming Club Excellence title.
The club supplements their traditional lap pool training with an Endless Pool Elite, and bested their closest competitor by over 10,000 points.


David Marsh, SwimMAC’s director, has led the dominant program since he founded it in 2007, and the former Auburn University head coach has long been a proponent of the Endless Pool.
"For years at Auburn I trained my athletes in an Endless Pool, but the Elite we put in at SwimMAC takes it to another level. It expands my ability to provide the best technical advice possible," said Marsh.
The Elite Model pool allows Marsh to analyze technique and deliver instant feedback to his swimmers in a static environment. Through the use of underwater cameras and mirrors, Marsh is able to train his pupils to succeed at the highest level.
“We are very proud of what Coach Marsh has been able to do at SwimMAC,” said James Murdock, founder and CEO of Endless Pools. “Our product is a great fit for their program, as they are able to train and develop elite swimmers in our Elite Endless Pool.”
Marsh, who led Auburn to 10 total Men’s and Women’s NCAA National Championships, has shown a commitment to winning during his entire career. After coaching over 20 Olympians during his distinguished career, SwimMAC’s success and dedication to perfection with the Endless Pool Elite helps carry on his standard of excellence.
The coach is such a big fan of the product, that he owns an Endless Pool Swim Spa, which combines the company’s unparalleled swim current with a relaxing spa.
While Marsh was ahead of the curve, many premier swim programs and coaches are now taking note of his success with Endless Pools.
The Elite Model is now a mainstay on the decks of programs such as Harvard, Dartmouth and Indiana, and is a growing presence in the competitive swimming community as renowned coaches such as Kim Brackin, Terry Laughlin and Glenn Mills train with the help of an Endless Pool.
For swimmers who want to push themselves to the next level, at home, or in training with some of the foremost teachers in the swimming industry, the Endless Pool is the way to go.

Five Aquatic Therapy Benefits from Endless Pools

 

Aquatic therapy has become increasingly popular as awareness to the benefits of hydrotherapy versus traditional, land-based therapy come to light. Through products such as the Endless Pool, you can achieve unique results by harnessing the soothing, healing properties of water.

While land-based exercise is the more conventional choice, those who step inside a pool enjoy a variety of clear advantages that can decrease injury risk as well as offer alternative workouts.

It is important to remember that pools aren’t just for swimming. While many gain outstanding results from the ability to swim in their Endless Pool, aquatic therapy can meet the needs of swimmers and non-swimmers alike.



Here are five distinct benefits to water exercise that you can achieve with the assistance of an Endless Pool.

Buoyancy: Depending on water depth, body weight can be reduced up to 90%, greatly reducing joint stress and pain you may experience outside the water. While gravity can make land exercise daunting or even impossible for some, the buoyancy—or upward force—of water will support you and provide an ideal, low-impact workout setting.

Resistance: Water will naturally put up a fight and resist movement, providing you with a strenuous workout. Endless Pools also offer swim current and hydrotherapy jet options that enhance resistance. Rather than deal with heavy weights and complicated machines outside of the pool, utilize the natural resistance of water to strengthen your muscles in a safer, more versatile environment.

Range of Motion: The warmth (Endless Pools can be heated up to 90 degrees) of water can enhance your therapy, relaxing your muscles and increasing blood flow to your muscles and joints, providing you the opportunity to improve your flexibility. Develop a greater range of motion to maintain your ability to complete everyday tasks.

Options: Break free from the limitations of land exercise. Inside an Endless Pool you can swim, run, jog, walk, stretch, work on balance, practice aerobics, and more. The freedom of a low-impact, low-stress, safe environment will allow you to rehabilitate, train, exercise and regenerate your body.

Fun: Ever wonder what it would be like to look forward to your exercise routine? Swimming, running, walking, stretching—any type of exercise in the pool takes on a unique, fresh feel when immersed in water. In the crystal clear, soothing water of an Endless Pool, you’ll enjoy your workout and feel good about yourself as you work toward your goals.

Endless Pools Excited to Impress Abroad at Piscine Pool Expo

Representatives from Endless Pools will travel to Lyon, France for the World Spa and Private Swimming Pool Show, taking place from November 13-16.

The company is excited to place the Endless Pool® Dual Temperature 19’ Swim Spa on display. The product features a 15’ exercise spa, as well as an attached 4-person therapeutic hot tub for the finest in fitness and relaxation.

“We are very excited to introduce the Endless Pools Swim Spa in Lyon,” said Endless Pools founder and CEO, James Murdock. “We believe our swim spa is unparalleled, featuring the highest quality swim current on the market, in addition to a variety of unique options such as our underwater treadmill. Our pools make exercise, therapy and relaxation enjoyable for the entire family.”

Building on their strong US sales, Endless Pools sees the European market as the logical next step in the company’s growth. There’s no better place to start than France—the world’s second largest pool market.

“We’ve had great success in the States,” said Murdock. “There is every reason to believe that we can replicate that success in Europe, and the Swim Spa is ideally suited for the smaller homes and gardens common in most European towns.”

Already the industry leader in the United States, the Pennsylvania-based company is eager to make an impact in France as it seeks new dealers throughout Europe. While the company has a strong presence in the United Kingdom, Endless Pools hopes to extend and strengthen its reach by creating new relationships at the world’s largest spa and private swimming pool show.

The 2012 Piscine pool show will feature 1,000 brands, and representatives and visitors from over 80 countries are expected. The team from Endless Pools is excited to leave a strong, lasting impression in hopes of making Endless Pools the top swimming machine brand in Europe.

Dartmouth Swim Team Looks to Join Ivy Elite with Endless Pools

0 comments
 
The Dartmouth University swim team has purchased the Elite Pool by Endless Pools to enhance training in anticipation of their upcoming season, which opens November 10.

Inside a compact swimming area, a powerful, custom-made 24” wide and 21” deep current tests Big Green head coach Jim Wilson’s team. With the help of underwater cameras and mirrors, Wilson and his swimmers can instantly analyze technique.

Within a few short weeks, Wilson saw Dartmouth’s purchase payoff, as the pool became a vital training tool for the team, allowing for immediate adjustment and reinforcement while in the water.

“As a coach, it's easy to pick up on hand entry and body position while they are swimming in front of you,” said Wilson. “The team loves being able to get in and see different parts of their stroke. As a result, they feel more confident in the water.”

Coming off a season in which Dartmouth posted its best record in the past 30 years, the Ivy League school aims to make an even bigger splash in 2012.

“We hope to do better within our league, and swimming faster is the way we'll be able to achieve that. Stroke technique is crucial in achieving that goal,” said coach Wilson.

Premier swim programs such as Auburn, Harvard, Indiana, and Kentucky have already realized the benefits of the Endless Pool Elite, as Dartmouth added its name to an impressive, growing list.

“Recruiting plays a big part in how we do as a team, and our recruits know we're serious about swimming by our commitment to use the Endless Pool,” said Wilson.

After the Big Green men’s and women’s swim team earned the highest combined GPA of all Division I schools last fall, Wilson hopes the Endless Pool Elite will help vault the team to similar levels inside the swimming pool.
