    VASA Training with Rob Sleamaker

    in Fitness

    For more than 20 years, Vasa swim trainers have helped top swimmers perform at the highest levels of the sport. In 1989, company founder Rob Sleamaker walked into the American Swim Coaches Association (ASCA) World Clinic with an unconventional new product. It was the Vasa Trainer, a swim bench that unknowingly would change dryland swim training forever. Already an acclaimed exercise physiologist and author, Rob had seen the effects of intensely focused dryland training firsthand with Olympic level Nordic skiers—but would the world’s most respected swim coaches be interested in training their swimmers outside of the pool on such a device? Indeed they were, and today the product is a key training device for swimmers, triathletes, and stand-up paddlers. We talk with Rob Sleamaker about the latest in Vasa technology in this episode of The Fitness Buff.
