If you are planning a gift for a swimmer, you may think of a stop watch. Your loved ones will be able to time their stroke well. Swim wear, head gear, gifts, there are plenty of options on line. You can also consider a waterproof bag which can fit the wetsuit of a swimmer, shoes and headgear. Choose the one which has plenty of space and a water proof section so that you can keep your damp towel too. These bags have been designed understanding the needs of a swimmer.

There are special work out sets, specially designed for swimmers. Tone your body well so that you can give out your best in the pool. It also helps you to improve your stamina and racing ability. Have your own work out schedule or take advice from others. Your coach will be of great help to you on this. Stroke drills can serve your purpose of a good work out. You can gradually increase your speed and mileage too.

You will want comfortable goggles, several competitive style suits (baggy trunks are good for the beach, but are like wearing hiking boots for a run), a waterproof wristwatch, and a swim cap (to keep your hair off of your face or to keep warm). Often, workout gear, such as kick boards, pull buoys, flippers, and hand paddles are available at the pool. Eventually, you may want to purchase these items for yourself, after you try several different styles to find what "suits" you best!
