Craig Lewin, founder of Endurance Swimming and creator of Headstrong
Craig Lewin is the founder of Endurance Swimming and a USA Swimming Coach and Level 2 USA Cycling Coach with a master's degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology, a Bachelor's Degree in Sport Movement Science, and a Bachelor's degree in Economics and Sociology.

A graduate of Boston College and the Varsity NCAA Division I Swim Team, Lewin is a nationally-ranked triathlete. His swimming expertise has helped him become a successful competitor in the sport of triathlon and now he wants to share his experience, knowledge and swimming techniques with you.

Lewin also developed Headstrong™, a set of innovative swimming educational tools and philosophy.

[edit] Headstrong™

Headstrong™ was invented to help athletes achieve their maximum potential while swimming. It gives insight to proper head position and aids in the correction of total body posture. Headstrong™ is a training tool like fins, paddles, or buoys... designed to aid in the development of your skill level. With its patent pending technology, Headstrong™ delivers continuous "real-time" feedback while you train. With this innovative training device, you now have the unique ability to easily correct your head position leading to a more efficient stroke.

Headstrong™ is made of HDPE which is chlorine resistant and UV resistant. Headstrong™ works for all types of swimming techniques - Freestyle, Breast or Butterfly stroke. Swimmers can also wear the device to provide a focal point... which is especially helpful for doing the backstroke. It was developed for male and female triathletes and swimmers training at any skill level.

It's design uses "range-of-motion" to alert athletes of their head position and is completely undetectable to the swimmer until head position exceeds the recommended posture range.
