What could be better than a FINIS Tempo Trainer for developing rhythm and flow? TWO Tempo Trainers.


Freestyle - Building a Longer Stroke

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Jan 21, 2014 05:01PM

If you want to create effective changes in a swimmer, it takes time. Using the Tempo Trainer can help bring about that long-term change.


Backstroke - Learning Spin Drill

By Glenn Mills to Backstroke | Oct 29, 2013 07:00AM

When our swimmers start to move forward to a more advanced level, it's time to take some time to focus on hand speed.


Swimming Set of the Week - August 17, 2013

By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Aug 16, 2013 11:02AM

Fartlek-type speed set this week to work on stroke rate.


Breaststroke - Playing with Rate

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Jul 30, 2013 10:25AM

Learning better breaststroke sometimes means lengthening the stroke to the point where it becomes uncomfortable.


Main Set Wednesday - Tempo Trainer Free Back Breast

By Barbara Hummel to Silver (Intermediate) | Jun 12, 2013 11:29AM

This set starts out feeling smooth and easy, and ends with some intense cadences, especially for backstroke and breaststroke.


Breaststroke - Forced Hand Speed

By Glenn Mills to Breaststroke | Jul 09, 2012 03:51PM

Many young breaststrokers search for power rather than finesse when trying to go fast. Sometimes forcing them into a rate above what's comfortable can help them keep the hands quick, and where they should be.


Freestyle - Resistance Catch Training

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Jun 19, 2012 09:22AM

If you want to have some fun with stretch cords and a Tempo Trainer, here's a quick, challenging sequence to help you learn a better pull.


Main Set Wednesday - March 21, 2012

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Mar 21, 2012 01:44PM

Trying to convince people to plan for what's to come is sometimes tricky. Today was no different than yesterday... almost like a theme is building. Going to have to mix things up a bit more tomorrow.

By Glenn Mills to Pic of the Week | Mar 25, 2011 08:37AM

I had a great opportunity to take a fast swimmer to test a new Endless Pool yesterday.


Freestyle - Short Strokes

By Glenn Mills to Freestyle | Mar 22, 2011 07:55AM

We've referred to this type of drill before as "short release", so we're revisiting this concept.


I Make Mistakes on Purpose So You Won't Have To

By Glenn Mills to Articles | Dec 22, 2010 02:52PM

Sure, that's a long title for a quick article, but this is an event that took place at the pool today.

By Glenn Mills to Set of the Week | Dec 17, 2010 09:40AM

This set kinda sneaks up on you... which can be a good thing.
