Dryland Resistance Equipment
Dryland is something that can help your stroke technique, strength, reaction time, and swim specific portions of every race. We offer a ton of different pieces of equipment to help you elevate your dryland program. Dryland HAS to connect to the water. If you cannot connect the movements you do in dryland to the water, the swimmers will not try 100% in dryland. The goal of Dryland is to increase strength of muscles used in the stroke and races as well as improving flexibility, stroke technique, improving range of motion, and training young swimmers.
