How rubber from 2009 is going to help you swim your fastest now

Let me tell you about the most important innovation in the last decade of competitive swimming and how it’s going to help you swim your fastest now.

It was 2009 and competitive swimmers were covered in rubber from head to toe.

Records were broken in mass…

But it wasn’t the rubber body suit that was the innovation, because times kept dropping long after the rubber suits went away…

What was the innovation, you ask?
And what does this have to do with you swimming fast now?


The innovation in question was AWARENESS

New possibilities were awakened and finding new ways to reach those possibilities were being created all over the world.

Now nine years later, people are starting to revert back to old their ways, falling back into old habits and blowing off many of the newest innovations, except for maybe the latest Smartwatch or fins.

They’re either enamored by technology, scared of it or simply unaware of what the rest of the athletic world is up to.  Well, we have good news for you…


We’re going to show you what the rest of the world has been working on…

For now, know that the foundation remains the same.  Hard work is still part of the formula…however, the formula is changing.

What most people are too busy to realize, is how much training is changing, how fast it’s changing and how much of a negative impact this change will have on their performance if they get left behind.

The Performance Revolution is here and the Exceptional Performance “technologies” are ENDLESS!  And these technologies aren’t necessarily hand-held devices or things you can put on or strap on.  Many already reside within you they just need to be unlocked.

The WAY to better performance and a balanced life starts at the XLR8 World Summit, where 16 of the most innovative and exponential thinking experts from around the world are coming together for a 100% ONLINE EVENT, April 30 – May 3, 2018.
