The Bowswim®Swimming Resistance System


The first piece of health fitness equipment we will discuss is a clever swimming device invented by one of our closest friends, Randy Reid. 

Are you aware that swimming, and/or calisthenic exercises in water, are probably the most aerobically effective, yet low-impact exercise routines you could engage in?

Low-impact aquatic exercise

Smoothly pushing against resistance (water) without pounding those joints can get your heart rate up and muscles pumping without damaging your tender knees or spine.

For these reasons, swimming resistance or water exercise is widely regarded as the most ideal fitness exercise. Just ask your doctor.

Got Water?

Okay, so you have a swimming pool out back. It's beautiful, but not really appropriate for serious aerobic exercise (swimming laps).

Get your money's worth out of that beautiful pool.


Or, the community swimming pool at your condo is long enough, but usually looks like this:

Your condo pool in the afternoon.Yikes!
How could you ever swim laps in that?


The solution...  claim just a tiny portion of that pool for your own personal full-sized workout.

Enter....

Randy's....

Bowswim®!

The Bowswim® Story

Okay, so there are a few other "tethered" swimming devices on the market. But the Bowswim® is different. And this is why we recommend the Bowswim® above the others.

Our friend Randy first became interested when he used another "swim tether" to get some exercise. He loved the low-impact aerobic workout he got, but the device ended up breaking after just a few uses. 

Randy became intrigued with the swim tether design and did some research. He had his friend Cathy Turner, an actual Olympic swimming champion, try out all the other swim tethers currently on the market. This professional athlete was able to break every last one of those other devices! 

So by then Randy was on a mission: he was going to build the best swimming tether resistance equipment on the market. Unbreakable.

The Bowswim® Kit

He started from scratch with a new design, using more durable materials and superb craftsmanship throughout the system. After several trips to confer directly with his manufacturers, he finally came up with a cutting-edge, attractive and super sturdy swim exercise tether which he named the Bowswim®.

His Olympic swimming friend tried hard, but could not break his new and improved model. [Patents are pending.]

Our friends across the street have a Bowswim® installed on their pool deck and swear by it. We have tried it out ourselves and also give it a rousing "Thumbs Up"!

Easy to install... you can even clamp it to the pool ladder or attach it to your boat deck.

We have close contact with this gear by a family member or friend who owns it; they give it a thumbs up.

Stationary Cycling

The Sunny Health Bike

Stationary cycling is also touted as a fine low-impact home aerobics program. Even if you have "bad knees", you can benefit from a moderate cycling regimen. Ask your physician for guidelines so you don't overdo it.

Stationary cycles are great to park in front of a TV set to keep you entertained and distracted from the monotony of the repetitive exercise moves.

We have not personally had or used an exercise bike in many years, so we had a lot of research to do. One unit that stood out from the crowd was the Sunny Health & Fitness Exercycle. 

Not only was it named the top choice for "Best Exercise Bike in 2018" by a Very Well Fit independent review, it is also an Amazon's Choice item.

We relied on published information and reviews to recommend this item.
