PHOENIX, April 25, 2016 -- EXOS is excited to announce our new partnership with Speedo USA and the launch of the first phase of a new total-body aquatic training program, Speedo FIT, ushering in the next evolution of fitness. Speedo FIT is a platform designed to inspire and equip athletes at all levels to explore the unique science and power of training in the water.
“Speedo USA is looking at the water a bit differently these days. It’s an all-in-one fitness center that offers more benefits than the land,” said Jim Gerson, Speedo USA president. “It’s no secret that swimming is one of the best full-body workouts, but this water training goes beyond swimming laps, shifting the workout from purely horizontal to vertical, including cardio, resistance, weightlifting, and stretching. As we advocate this new training environment, we’re using our expertise and medal-winning performance in the water to provide the best quality and comfort in aquatic training apparel and gear, backed by a regimen developed in partnership with EXOS, to make training in the water both challenging and accessible.”
Together, EXOS and Speedo USA used a science-based approach to identify the key benefits of water to design specific water training techniques. The workouts complement land-based routines and allow for customization based on fitness goals, including power, endurance, and recovery. The comprehensive Speedo FIT program is available at speedousa.com/speedofit, including information on the five major benefits of water, more than 60 training and swim tip videos, and Speedo USA’s innovative assortment of fitness suits and water training gear.
“EXOS has relied heavily on aquatic training to fulfill our responsibility in helping the best get better,” said Mark Verstegen, EXOS founder and president. “Immersing our clients in aquatic training environments has given them a competitive advantage by improving their performance. We’re excited that Speedo, the global aquatic leader, is committed to sharing this training platform with athletes of all backgrounds who will benefit from high-intensity training programs proven to decrease pain and elevate performance.”
