Designed to give aqua joggers maximum range of motion and easy breathing form, the Aqua Trim Flotation Belt provides optimal support and balance while in the water.
Evenly Distributed Support
Unlike other flotation belts that often provide uneven buoyancy, the Aqua Trim Flotation belt gives swimmers even, all around support. Its evenly distributed design helps promote a larger range of motion. This means that you can fully concentrate on working your lower and upper body without having to fidget with a flotation belt thatís constantly in the way. The uniform support also makes breathing with the belt on easier. The Aqua Trim Belt is similar to the Hydro-Fit Wave Belt. Also available in various sizes, the Hydro-Fit design was created to provide equal buoyancy on all sides.
The Water Gear Aqua Trim Belt is designed to fit just below the rib cage and well above the hips. This placement, which provides optimal lumbar support, helps support your vertebrae that carry the majority of your bodyís weight. Because of this, the Trim Belt provides unparalleled vertical balance while in the water. It also helps relieve stress on the back and its even distribution can even help strengthen the core and lower back muscles. The beltís positioning also allows for better overall flotation and positioning during water running or aqua aerobics routines. Youíre sure to love the Water Gear beltís secure fit and shape. But, remember that the belt, while extremely buoyant, should not be used as a safety flotation device.
The Aqua Trim Flotation Belt, which comes in blue, is available in three different sizes. The Small size is ideal for swimmers between 100 and 160 pounds. The slightly larger Medium can handle between 160 and 220 pounds. And the Large size can support swimmers 220 pounds and over. Each size comes with a fully adjustable nylon belt. Itís easy to buckle and quickly forms to your bodyís unique size and shape. And if the strap ever needs replacing, Water Gear has you covered with their Flotation Belt Replacement Strap. Itís designed to fit both the Water Gear Water Runner Belts and the Aqua Trim Belts.
The AquaGear Opinion
Testers in the AquaGear pool strapped on an Aqua Trim Flotation Belt and hopped in the water to test its buoyancy and design. The first thing that swimmers noticed was how the foam fits evenly around the waist. Most other floatation belts, such as the Water Gear Runner Floatation Belt, rely on unequal float distribution to work. But, the extra dense, slightly less pliable foam used on the Water Gear Trim Flotation Belt was able to support testers evenly and easily. And the AquaGear swimmers really loved the sizing options, which allowed for excellent fit and comfort.
The Bottom Line
For an easy, comfortable flotation belt that wonít get in the way of your workout routine, try the Water Gear Aqua Trim and enjoy your time in the water.

Better than expected!

Considering the price I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I weigh 130/sz 10 but ordered the medium belt based on the dimensions given over the phone. This belt would be even better if the medium size was 4 inches longer. This one works for me and I do a strenuous work out. there is very little belt slippage and the back support is great.

This belt gives wonderful back support and allows great buoyancy. My only complaint is that the medium just about fits me and I am a size 8. A size 10 might fit in to a medium. The dimensions for the large are much too big. If you could just extend the size of the small and medium, they would be perfect. Yes, I would buy another one!
