Do you have an extremely challenging life (job), mentally or physically? Are you ambitious at career but never make it to gym? Do you feel frustrated about exercising? Are you unable to include exercise in your life, even though you would like to? Do you feel exercising is too much of an emotional effort?

 

CREATED FOR BUSY PEOPLE

 

The fitness industry deals with motivation as an exercise excuse. You have probably seen fitness advertisements that say „no more excuses” or ‘get fit now!’. The slogans as well as the photos of athletes play with people’s conscience and get them to join the fitness club.

 

However, most of them stay on for a few months and then quit. Swimitation was created because, in reality, people have real reasons (not excuses) that keep them from exercising: a career, children and family, friends, mental status or physical shape. People want to devote to the most important in your life and often it is not even a choice.

 

Life is extremely demanding and people can easily end up excluding exercise for just the lack of time or avoiding exercising for social anxiety. Swimitation is a private water training, it eases any anxiety you may have from your life at work or at home.

 

NOBODY EXPECTED THIS

 

What was first invented as a private fitness device for office people turned out to be a unique opportunity for many others.

 

MUSCLE RELAX. During the 2-year testing period, more and more Swimitation’s testers who had back pain, shoulder, hip, elbow or knee pain other medical issues with joints or muscles claimed to have immediate relief after just one Swimitation session.

 

Water gymnastics and aquatic physical therapy provide an explanation. The brain relax attained in water gives signals to the muscles to relax. The relief of muscle tensions in the problematic area brings about a loosening of the joints and increases circulation.

A more intense metabolism means more nutrients to the tissues and quicker carrying out of residue. This leads to relief of pain and inflammation.

 

EFFORTLESS CORE MUSCLE TRAINING. One of the biggest challenges of physical therapy is keeping the correct biomechanics attained in physical therapy. For that, one would need to train core muscles. Core or stabilizing muscles are the body support and they are essential for joints and spine protection. Strength muscles contain slow twitch muscle tissue, the training of which is an excellent basis for physical performance.

 

Core muscles are not easy to train on land, because the strength muscles as stronger take the work to themselves. This is hard to attain because patients fail to follow exercises instructions given by the physical therapists and also, those special exercises are hard to execute without an instructor. This has led to a point where some physical therapists have even given up instructing the patients regarding beneficial exercises for their particular problem.

 

With slow moves, Swimitation cuts the work of strenght muscles, which enables efficient training of the core muscles. With water resistance, this trains very efficiently. Training your core in Swimtiation feels amazingly effortless because your body does not need to fight gravity. This is why many Swimitation users have reporter keeping their physical therapy results in the long term.

 

In sum, Swimitation targets the most important body muscles – the hard to train slow twitch muscles. It is therefore ideal or any people who work in coerced position (e.g. sitting) or have otherwise physically challenging life.

 

INVENTED FOR BUSY PEOPLE, AMAZING FOR ATHLETES.

Founder and CEO

Heidi was constantly feeling mentally and physically drained due to her busy schedule and long hours. Working tirelessly in an office as a lawyer, she felt a lot of pressure on her eyes and back due to the unnatural position she took while sitting at a desk behind a computer all day. To relieve her stress, Heidi would seek solitude and silence, which she did not find in group training, the gym, or public pools. Still conscious of her physical well-being, she dreamed of a private training with closed eyes. That dream eventually created the spark which resulted in Swimitation, a private water routine that unites fitness and relaxation—perfect for office workers!

In January 2018 I started to use Swimitation for metabolic recovery and overall physical development. Regularily I go once a week. Swimitation has made my body more elastic and my step longer. When I had a leg injury, I used Swimitation twice a week and the recovery was amazingly fast. Swimitation is life-changing for athletes and players! For overall wellness after trainings as well as for achieving the goals!

For years I had been suffering of lower back pain, specifically in mornings. My friend recommended to try Swimitation. I did not have a lot of faith, but I decided to try. In the next morning something felt unusual. The back pain was gone! This happened a few years ago and the pain has been gone ever since.
