  The NCAA has given the thumbs up to blueseventy’s neroTX swimskin, ensuring that swimmers can wear the suits at forthcoming Conference meets and the NCAA Championships.
Furthermore, swimmers with a banned swimskin can trade it in for a 50% discount on a new NeroTX suit.

 

 

 


The new suit features the very latest in modern textile fabric technology, making as much up to the minute technology as possible available to the swimmer.
CEO Steve Nicholls commented: “The body suit has been banished, but a new generation of suits is now ready to take their place. The neroTX has been extensively tested by scientists and swimmers.  Whilst staying within FINAs latest guidelines, we’ve produced a super light weight, compressive, hydrophobic material that repels water effectively and drastically decreases drag.
We’ve applied the same passion for design and innovation to the neroTX that turned the record breaking blueseventy nero into the top selling race suit in the world.”
The neroTX is made from a unique highly compressive, ultra low drag, water smart fabric.  blueseventy's exclusive fabric is produced using a warp multifilament treated nylon, with an
extremely thin yarn count. The entire neroTX range is ultrasonically welded, further eliminating the drag that’s created from traditionally sewn suits.      

     If you want more information on the trade in, call Jeannie at 1-866-218-SWIM and she will be happy to help you!

The SportCount Chrono 100 is a great way to track all of your workout statistics.  One of my customers sent me his workout stats using the Chrono 100 and agreed to let me share it with you!  I hope you find it helpful.  If you have any questions about this product or any other....just call the store at 1-866-218-SWIM and we will be very happy to help you.  Happy Swimming!!

Here are his stats!

"I received the SportCount Chrono 100 on Saturday morning, and was able to use it.

I usually swim only once a week, in an outdoor 25 meter pool, for a little over 2000
meters.

Here are details of my very first timing, with some summaries and some observations
at the bottom.

   Column A:  distance in meters
   Column B:  time to swim in seconds
   Column C:  pace for 25 meters in seconds = (25*B)/A
   Column D:  pace for 2000 meters in minutes and seconds = (2000*B)/A
   Column E:  rest in seconds

   Aside: i)  In Row 12 below, I swam 150 instead of 100.
          ii) This is the first time in my life that I looked
              at my swim performance this carefully!

                     A     B         C      D            E

Great news for you distance and fitness swimmers!  I just found a great new product....Swimovate Pool Mate.  It's a wrist swim computer.  It will keep track of your laps, in all strokes automatically!  What a great idea!  Not only does it track your laps, but it tells you how you're doing during your workout.  Check it out!  I think you'll be as amazed as I was when I found it.
