  • Elastic tether
    • With an elastic tether, you hook yourself up to the side of the pool or workout buddy and then run away from your friend or side of the pool for added resistance.
    • Tethers are also used as a protective device. They are used to clip your safety harness to a boat.
  • Hand buoys/Fitness barbells
    • Hand buoys are great for upper-body strength moves. They are like dumbbells but with foam discs at each end.Hand buoys can be used in deep and shallow water.
    • Hand buoys come in many designs and sizes.
  • Water shoes
