Product Review: FREDS SWIM ACADEMY SWIMTRAINER "Classic" Orange


SWIMTRAINER is available in three different models for children ages 3 months to 8-years-old. I chose the “ Classic” Orange model for my son who will be three-years-old next month. We haven’t had much luck with the typical swimming aids so I was eager to try the SWIMTRAINER. What appealed to me about this product is the overall design that focuses on both safety and helping children learn to swim.

It was very easy to inflate and to put on my son. No struggling like with previous swimmers. The SWIMTRAINER has two different clip fasteners, and everything is adjustable, ensuring a snug and safe fit for your child.

As soon as my son entered the pool, he was thrilled. The first thing I noticed was how well the safety belt worked by preventing him from tipping forward. The safety belt comfortably covers his abdomen and gives him the support to stay afloat. He had fun holding onto the side of the pool and kicking his legs as though he were swimming.

He is happier during pool time because he has a bit more freedom to move his arms and legs in the kid’s area of the pool with his SWIMTRAINER. I am a lot happier because I know my son is experiencing the beginning skills in learning how to swim while being protected.

I would highly recommend this product to any parent searching for a swimming aid for their young child. I can’t rave enough about the quality of this product.

I never used a swimtrainer when I learned. I have never thought of it for my son either...

I love it! I have 3 children that I have to keep an eye on in the pool so it's comforting to know they are all as safe as possible :)

Every child is so different. I am happy that this swim aid would be your buddy during his pool time!

What a great blog. Keep up the great work.

I like this! We were swimming yesterday and Ava didn’t want to keep her arm floats on. She can’t really control herself in a life jacket yet, so we don’t use one. The Swimtrainer looks like it would work great for us!

Very unique idea, it's always better to be safe...

That looks like a great way to learn to swim! My boys could've used that a few years ago! He's adorable!

I had something similar to this as a kid - I was terrible at swimming (unlike my sisters). I hope my son has his grandfather's genes (my FIL was on the Springbok national team in South Africa)

Looks like a really great product to help kids feel more comfortable in the water! Such cute pics of your kiddo too! :)

I want this for my daughter! She is fearless and loves floating in the pool with just are floaties! She doesn't want my help and I know arm floaties won't keep her up at all times!!!!
