We are also pleased to announce that leading swimming coach, Jim Fowlie, has agreed to join SwimPro as our Director of Coaching to help us develop an educational and coaching framework around SwimPro. Jim has racked up over 1,000 SwimPro coaching sessions and been a major influence in our product development. Jim, who has worked with several world and Olympic champions, says of SwimPro:
“SwimPro has helped revolutionise how we work with swimmers. To be able to capture real-time footage from multiple angles, add delays, analyse, diagnose and then be able to communicate to a swimmer at the pool deck helps improve the quality and effectiveness of our coaching and speeds the improvement in the swimmers technique and performance.”
Merry Christmas and a happy new year from the SwimPro team!

The new SwimPRo IQ2 system turns heads and receives excellent reviews (see below)
“We've been using the SwimPro system at the Milton Marlin Swim Team in Ontario, Canada for a few months now. We've introduced it into the training environment with fantastic results! From teaching our beginners turns and skills, to fine tuning stroke technique with our National level athletes , the SwimPro system has made a difference to not only how the swimmers train and compete, but also the way we coach. Ryan was awesome in helping to build a package that fit our needs and budget. We're looking forward to adding more camera's in the future!”
The World Swimming Conference in Florida was a hit. Thank you to all the coaches and experts for the great feedback. The new SwimPro IQ2 systems delivered a powerful punch and showed people that wireless video feedback with software, ipads and video clouds IS SIMPLE and EFFICIENT.
Additional thank you and a 'welcome to the team' extend to Michael Andrews and his team. Micheal approached the SwimPro shop and enquired about underwater video training - did we have a solution for him! We gave Michael and his team the run down on the new exciting products and he was 'blown away' be the multiple angle feedback and sharing capabilities.
