Pro triathlete and swim coach Anna Cleaver shares the items in her swimming gear bag, and explains how each tool can benefit triathletes.

“There are training tools that are essential, but most are ‘nice to haves,’” says Cleaver. “It is more important that the athlete knows why he or she is using a specific aid, and using it in the parts of their session where they will get the most benefit. While I have updated the equipment, what is in my swimming gear bag has not changed in the past 15 years. I keep it simple,” she says.
