Like other swim training fins, the Aqua Sphere Microfin HP is a great training tool for competitive swimmers as well as an easy add-on to your current fitness swimming routine. Made in Italy to the highest quality standards, these short-blade TPR fins feature a full foot pocket for stability and raised ribs to channel water efficiently.

The Speedo Biofuse Swim Training Fins are short blade fins designed to help swimmers focus on perfecting stroke technique, while strengthening leg muscles and overall endurance.

Upper leg muscles - the primary focus of fin training - account for a very large portion of the body's musculature.
Designed for lower body strength development, Aqua Sphere Zip VX Fins feature mid-length blades which are relatively flexible, compared to other training fins. Aqua Sphere Zip VX Fins are ideal for professional athletes due to their narrow construction and non-slip fin rails for a powerful push-off. But these adjustable open-heel fins are also popular among beginners and older adults for their incredible ease-of-use and flexible, fatigue-reducing blades.
Designed in Australia, the unique DMC Elite Training Fins are a favorite training fin among Olympians, triathletes, and body surfers worldwide. The Elite Training Fins' durable silicone design is unyielding to chlorine and salt-water breakdown, making this fin a reliable training partner that will last for years. The soft silicone reduces abrasiveness, allowing you to swim harder, for longer. Plus, the weight of the silicone keeps feet just under the surface, for ideal propulsion.
Whether you prefer snorkeling, scuba diving, or even body surfing, the US Divers Sea Lion Fins are perfect for any recreational water-based activity. The Sea Lions were designed to be extra buoyant.

Formerly the Zura Alpha Swim Fin, the first injection molded EVA foam swim fin launched into the aquatic fitness market, the Aqua Sphere Alpha Fins are a lightweight, durable fin specially designed to give you an isolated leg workout regardless of the stroke you choose. New in 2016, the Alpha Pro Fins are stiffer to provide greater strength-building potential for competitive swimmers and serious fitness training.
Featuring the same asymmetrical design as the original Alpha Fins, the new Alpha Pro Training Fins are stiffer than the standard version, making them more suitable for competition swimmers and passionate fitness junkies. The floating foam construction is unique to the Alpha series, lifting the user's lower body for an improved, streamline body position. Plus, these fins are 70% lighter than traditional silicone or rubber fins.
The Finis Z2 Zoomers are a short blade swim training fin specially designed to optimize your cardio and strength conditioning leg workout. These short blade swim training fins engage the leg and core muscles for a more intense workout. The added resistance due to the larger surface of area of a fin compared to your foot helps increase leg strength. Still, the Finis Z2 Zoomers displace less water than longer blade swim fins, allowing for more cardio and strength training benefit.
New for 2017, Switchblade Fins by Speedo were designed for premier performance and unmatched comfort. They're the ideal fin for professional athletes, surfers, and fitness swimmers.

Designers in the Speedo lab tested numerous blade designs, seeking the blade shape with the greatest balance.
Made from durable injection-molded EVA foam, Speedo's Nemesis Training Fins prepare you for a winning season (and make you look totally bad-ass). The Nemesis' design mimicks the fin of the humpback whale: the curvature, outer ridges, and sweeping channels funnel water with every up- and down-kick, providing the user with powerful propulsion. Plus, the gentle curve makes this fin acceptable for breaststroke practice, in addition to fly, free, and back.
Unlike traditionally shaped fins that work against the breaststroke’s unique frog-like kick, the highly developed Speedo Breaststroke fins greatly accelerate the whip kick teaching and learning process. Rather than taking on the appearance of a traditional fin, which usually features dense rubber-like material that extends outward from the toe, the Breaststroke Fin is angled along the outside edge of the foot. Its offset surface provides increased resistance and optimal shape retention.
The Burner EBP Fins by TYR feature high-buoyancy rubber and a short blade to promote proper positioning and cadence − making this the ideal pair for competitive swimmers and triathletes. The EBP in the Burner's name stands for Elevated Body Position − made possible by ultra-buoyant rubber construction. This extra 'lift' keeps the feet in perfect streamline to reduce drag even when the fins come off.
Speedo's Short Blade Training Fins offer increased resistance without hindering your natural kicking tempo, making them the ultimate training aid for improving flutter kick speed, technique, strength and endurance. Speedo designed the Short Blade Training fin's stiff silicone blade with a slightly larger surface area than the foot, allowing for more resistance and a greater propulsive force. The short, short blade shape promotes short, fast kicks.
