One of the many things that makes swimming so great is that it is so much cheaper than most other sports, where a ton of equipment is needed.

All you need to start out is:

  • a decent swimsuit
  • a swim cap
  • and a good pair of goggles if your eyes are sensitive.
As you start training more and want to get stronger and better toned you can either purchase or borrow:
  • a kickboard
  • pull-buoy
  • a pair of flippers
  • and paddles that will strengthen your legs and arms during the kick and pull sets.
