The Hydro-Tone Mini Fins compact design works hard against the natural resistance of water in order to provide swimmers with an optimal lower body workout.
Made from single, short 3” wide sections of high impact polypropylene, the Hydro-Tone Mini Fins pack quite the resistance punch, especially for their compact size. The rigid plastic forms a W-shape resistance blade that produces significant drag with every movement. No matter your exercise of choice, the Hydro-Tone Mini Fins can help add essential muscle toning, lower body resistance. Their bright yellow design and W-shaped blades are used throughout all other Hydro-Tone resistance training products.
Comfortable To Wear
While the W-shaped blades are working to tone and build leg muscles, your ankles will always stay comfortable thanks to the Mini Fins’ thick foam padding. A half an inch of soft-to-the-touch foam helps hold the fin in place and keeps your ankles chafe-free. The fins fasten on the lower leg with a 2” wide Velcro strap. The mini fins work best situated just slightly above the ankle, or can be moved to the wrists for a heart-pumping upper body workout as well.
Easy for Beginners
The Hydro-Tone Mini Fins are the smallest fin available in the expansive Hydro-Tone line. While they might not be as big as the Hydro-Tone Mini Boots or Hydro Boots, which are twice and four times as big, respectively, the Mini Fins still produce a noticeable and effective amount of resistance. Swimmers new to aqua exercising will love using the fins for effective lower body resistance training. Because the fins are buoyancy neutral, they can target specific muscle groups with ease. And the feature allows newer aqua cardio participants to determine the level of resistance they see fit. Rehabilitating patients and seniors with arthritis love that the fins easily strap around the wrists and can be used for an upper body workout as well. Or, for an all over workout, try pairing the fins with the Hydro-Tone Hydro Bells.
The AquaGear Opinion
The AquaGear testers tried out the Hydro-Tone Mini Fins around their ankles and wrists and found that the set provided a good overall workout. Swimmers thought that the fins would be great for beginners because of the light, but still effective, amount of resistance they provided. And, as promised, the Mini Fins really did produce resistance in every single direction. Testers didn’t have to exercise long to really feel the burn in their glutes, thighs, and hamstrings! The Hydro-Tone Mini Fins are ideal for use in shallow water, but can also be used in deeper water with the assistance of a flotation belt.
The Bottom Line
No matter if you’re new to the world of aqua cardio or have been enjoying its benefits for years, you’ll love the powerfully compact Hydro-Tone Mini Fins.
