5 Tips for Swim Coaches to Stretch Training Budgets
As swim coaches around the country face tighter and tighter training budgets, they are having to get creative when it comes to keeping costs down without sacrificing the health and fitness of their swimmers. In this month’s blog we’ll offer a few tips for swim coaches to stretch their training budgets.
Buying Proper Equipment
The old saying, “you get what you pay for,” is especially true when it comes to fitness equipment. With training budgets tight it may be hard to spend a bit more for quality equipment, but when it lasts longer than inferior equipment, you’ll be glad you spent the extra money. You may not realize that there is a difference between resistance tubing and resistance bands. StrechCordz® such as the ones sold by NZ Manufacturing are high quality and last much longer than resistance bands. One of our customers offered this quote in regards to our high quality products:
“Our Team has used StrechCordz for more than a decade now and we are extremely happy with this product. Upon original purchase I knew that the equipment was of good quality but am impressed with how great of quality they are. We have used them on and off each month for going on 12 yrs and of the original 3 that we purchased all 3 are handling the stresses of training just as well as the day we bought them. With this example of great quality, we have expanded our collection and look forward to using this excellent line of products for years to come.” – Leanne Sirup, Duncan Swim Team Coach, Shaw, California.
Proper Equipment Care
One way to extend the life of your fitness equipment is through proper maintenance. Using our proper use and care guide you can ensure that you are always caring for your equipment properly to ensure it will last for years to come.
Spend More Time in the Pool
As swim coaches we know that time in the pool can be one of the best training tools and it doesn’t cost very much money. Encouraging your swimmers to spend as much time in the pool as possible allows them to stay in shape while not having to spend money.
Encourage Good Eating Habits
Good eating habits are not only easier on the wallet, but they also help your swimmers to remain in shape. Overeating is one of the most obvious ways to quickly get out of shape and if your training budget is tight it’s especially important to encourage your swimmers to eat right!
Organize Group Fitness Activities
Another cheap way to encourage fitness is by organizing free activities that force your swimmers to stay active. Why not organize an outdoor hike or a game of laser tag to build camaraderie among your swimmers as well as keep them in shape at the same time.
