SwimmersBest is leading the way for the future of swim training equipment. The company offers a broad range of solutions for improving stroke technique, kick technique, and breathing technique. They provide swimmers, coaches, and teams with the tools they need to balance technique training with conditioning training. By combining the best drills with the best tools, the SwimmersBest products give swimmers instant tactile feedback so they can adjust their technique efficiently. The old way of having coaches constantly remind swimmers of their individual problems has proven to offer very little improvement in technique. All SwimmersBest products are designed to constantly ‘talk to the swimmers’ so they can feel the problems and make corrections. This unique approach means the swimmers are given negative feedback for incorrect stroke technique, which compels the swimmers to quickly correct the problem on their own. With a constant flow of new innovative product designs, SwimmersBest is a company that will continue to deliver solutions you need.
Doing Things Differently:
It is not just SwimmersBest products that involve so much ‘out of the box’ thinking, it is also their approach to development and manufacturing! SwimmersBest avoided the mainstream approach of launching only 1-2 new products each year and instead launched dozens of new products in their first 2 years of business. This daring approach was only possibly by incorporating innovative new methods of manufacturing and inventory control. For most of the plastic products SwimmersBest utilize 3D printing for full scale production. After years of development and testing, the company created one of the first 3D production lines of its kind in order to match the quality and pricing needed in the swim equipment industry. For the fabric and elastic products, SwimmersBest keeps all manufacturing local to ensure an uninterrupted flow of inventory for instant order fulfillment.
The company incorporates a scientifically based approach of development and prototyping. SwimmersBest owners are competitive swimmers and coaches who schedule 3-4 in-water sessions each week to evaluate new product designs and prototypes. This testing platform generates a nearly endless stream of new product inventions and improvements. While the industry standard is to make 2-5 different prototype designs for each new product launch, SwimmersBest typically designs and tests hundreds of prototype modifications before finalizing any new product for their line. No product is finalized until its impressive compilation of world renowned field testers sign off on the new designs.
At its core SwimmersBest is family owned and operated. Believe it or not, their products were invented and patented by a family of 5 teenage siblings and their parents! Bethany is their Technical Director overseeing all products designs and technical support. Jackson is the engineer for all plastic designs and production elements. Mallory is the Marketing Director. Warren is the patent and trademark expert as well as support for marketing and product design. Shelby and her husband Nathan oversee the testing of the junior product line. And Mom and Dad handle all the production elements, since most of the kids are still in high school and college.
