Take control of your stroke rate: Placed under your swim cap, The Finis Tempo Trainer Pro beeps an exact stroke tempo to you - simply swim and time your stroke to the beep!

The Tempo Trainer Pro is our number one piece of coaching equipment used throughout Swim Smooth from the squads in Perth through to our training plans and on-line coaching. It's very easy to use but such a powerful way to develop your swimming!

Introduction Video

Swimming Beepers

'Swimming Beepers' such as the Tempo Trainer Pro are fantastic tools to help you develop your swimming. They operate in two simple ways:

A) In 'Stroke Rate Mode' program in a strokes per minute figure (e.g. 60 SPM), place the Tempo Trainer under your swim cap and you will hear it beep the stroke rhythm to you as you swim; all you need to do is time your strokes to the beep as your hands enter the water. You can easily lower or raise your stroke rate slightly to find the sweet spots in your stroke efficiency. Set your Tempo Trainer Pro to mode 3 to do this.

B) In 'Lap Interval Mode' (modes 1 or 2 on the Tempo Trainer Pro) set the Tempo Trainer to a speed that you wish to swim at per 25m (or 25yd or 33m in those pools). Like a 'beep test' in the gym you then simply pace your swim so that you are pushing off on each lap on the beep. Most swimmers have very poor pacing, starting to fast and then fading which greatly harms their performances. In fact many swimmers set PBs the very first time they use a stroke beeper for this reason!

A stroke rate beeper is the most effective way available to remove dead spots and pauses from your stroke technique.

Deadspots are brought about by technique work focusing too much on gliding. This lowers your stroke rate and greatly harms your sense of rhythm. Use a Tempo Trainer Pro to progressively lift your stroke rate and remove the deadspot in your stroke - it's the key to faster and more efficient swimming!

Why do we stock so much Finis kit? Simply because they make some great products which we have grown to love over the years, so much so that we use very few training tools from anyone else within our Swim Smooth squads in Perth. We particularly love their paddles which are very innovative and cleverly designed.

Swim Smooth were recently invited by Finis to visit their home base in California and found an impressive young company packed with talented people. We were impressed to find that nearly every employee was a super-quick competitive swimmer in their own right, which explains why they produce such excellent products:

In short, these guys are the real deal, producing great kit that really helps swimmers improve their swimming.
