Other 'Hidden" values of training with a Vasa Ergometer
1. Your stroke technique and form will improve and become more efficient

3. You'll always be able to swim on your Erg, regardless of weather, pool availability, etc.
4. Every swim workout on the Vasa Ergometer is time efficient, productive, and fun
5. Training on the Vasa Ergometer eliminates wasted pool drills that don't relate to open water swimming
