Water Gear Belts are one of the most economical flotation belt options and are sized simply, according to weight.

For A Core-Focused Water Workout

The Water Runner jog belt sports a unique bone-like shape. The foam portion of the device is widest at each end and narrow in the middle. An adjustable woven belt, complete with safety buckle, runs through the foam and clips at the front of the body. Those who’ve used the Water Runner Belt love that the device is easy to put on and quick to adjust. The lightweight, yet durable, foam is thin enough to wrap comfortably around the waist, yet is thick enough to support the body in a vertical position. Many exercisers that tried the belt out were impressed with the Water Runner’s design which requires wearers to engage the core slightly to remain upright in the water. It’s slim design keeps you afloat without hampering arm movement whatsoever.


In addition to being adjustable, the Water Gear belt is also available in 4 different sizes. Being able to choose between Extra Small (for 100lbs or less), Small (100lbs – 160lbs), Medium (160lbs – 220lbs) and Large (220lbs and up) gives users the chance to get a device that’s fully optimized for their workout needs.

For Swimmers, Too!

The Water Runner Belt is trusted by elite athletes and trainers all over the world. But you don’t have to be a professional athlete in order to enjoy this easy to use device. In fact, some users claim that the belt can even be used to aide beginner swimmers while they learn the basics of a stroke. The Water Gear Water Runner belt’s slim, balanced design supports the body from all sides. This helps new swimmers, and even non-swimmers, feel more comfortable and secure in the water. It is important to remember that the Water Runner Belt is not a lifesaving device and should not be used in place of experienced, adult supervision.

Water Gear Aqua Trim Belt Review

Water Gear Aqua Trim Belt
The Water Gear Aqua Trim flotation belt provides an even distribution of buoyancy – making this belt ideal for seniors and those with weaker core muscles.

The Water Gear Aqua Trim Flotation Belt is a classically-styled & simple-to-use flotation device that keeps you comfortably supported during deep water exercises, or adds a bit of peace of mind to your swim. Water aerobics enthusiasts and cross training athletes worldwide have benefitted from this affordable flotation belt. See what makes this ‘better than expected’ workout device stand out from the rest.

Swimmers using the Water Gear Water Runner belt for aqua aerobics classes love the contoured fit which doesn’t impede arm movement like jumping jacks and cross-country skiing. The Aqua Trim Belt’s design sits just below the rib cage and just above the hips. Because of this fit, users were impressed with the belt’s ability to support their upper body without restricting range of motion, making it a perfect choice for aqua aerobics, deep water running, and rehabilitation purposes.

Of all the positive features the Water Gear Aqua Trim Belt delivers to users, it’s lumbar support is consistently one of the highest ranked features. While other flotation belts may pack buoyancy on to the front, sides, or back of the body, the Aqua Trim Flotation Belt fully surrounds the waist for 360 degrees of support. This means that you won’t be leaned forward or backwards during your workout. Instead, you’ll get easy-to-maintain vertical support – meaning that your head and neck will be kept well above water, without much extra effort on your part. Even non-swimmers who have taken to deep water rehab and aerobics put their trust in this belt because it assists the user in maintaining an upright position. For more experienced users, a belt with more foam toward the back – like the Speedo Aquatic Fitness Jog Belt – will lean the user forward thus, engaging the body’s postural muscles.

For an ideal fit, the Aqua Trim Flotation Belt is available in 3 different sizes. Users have noted that the medium size runs a tad small, so keep that in mind while shopping.
