    By Jarrod Shoemaker, 2008 Olympic Triathlete

    Last year on August 1st I broke my collarbone and it changed all of my goals and expectations for the remainder of the season.

Let's be honest, 8-weeks into the new year and we've already forgotten our resolutions. 

    Well, here are 16 resolutions that are worth remembering;

    Brand Q&A: Catching Up With MP Michael Phelps

    The new MP Michael Phelps brand launched in early 2015 with a line of performance goggles and continued with the much-awaited debut of the XPRESSO tech suit, worn in competition by the most decorated Olympian of all-time himself. This fall featured the debut of the MP line of training suits and the brand continues to expand its offerings. We caught up with representatives from Aqua Sphere responsible for the MP Michael Phelps brand to get the latest scoop on swimming’s newest performance line.

    SwimOutlet.com Blog: It’s been just over a year since the MP brand was announced, we’re guessing it’s been a busy year. Tell us some of the biggest things that were needed to get the brand up and running!

    MP Michael Phelps: We engaged our global team, from top management through Marketing, Product Development and Sales. It was critical to set-up a way to seamlessly feed ideas from Michael and Bob (Bowman) to our Marketing and Product Development teams. As we identified new product opportunities, we integrated Michael and Bob in the proof of concept and prototype testing to verify that we were meeting their expectations. When launching a new brand, it’s critical that it stands for something different and that the products clearly represent that; Michael Phelps has a vision to change the sport of swimming and the MP brand is one way to help accomplish this vision.

    Get to Know...Scott Weltz

    When Scott Weltz won the 2012 Olympic Trials in the 200 Breaststroke after being seeded 12th, he may have shocked the swimming world, but he really didn’t surprise himself:  “When I look back, I remember how prepared I felt.” Weltz now works to instill that confidence in swimmers as a college coach for UC Davis, a rec coach for the Aqua Monsters and a clinician on the Fitter and Faster Swim Tour Presented by SwimOutlet.com.

    Weltz’s wealth of swimming experience combined with his fun and unique teaching style have made him one of the most popular clinicians on the Fitter and Faster Swim Tour. He teaches athletes from the elite level down to beginning age group swimmers how to swim more powerful Breaststroke and how to execute faster transitions and more explosive starts. Recently, Weltz lead several clinics on “The Fifth Stroke,” Underwater Dolphin Kicking. These clinics give swimmers at every level  an opportunity to improve and excel at the fastest part of the race, underwater kicking off the walls.
