Our exclusive chlorine resistant swimwear line built for high performance at every curve, is proud to introduce renowned aquatics expert and U.S. National Masters Swimming and Synchro Champion Dr. Jane Katz. She helped pioneer synchronized swimming as an Olympic sport and was awarded the Federation Internationale de Natation Amateur (FINA) Certificate of Merit during the 2000 Sydney Olympics. If there’s anyone who understands what it takes to craft a suit that is at once functional and flattering, it’s Dr. Katz.
A professor of physical education and athletics at the John Jay College of Justice of the City University of New York, her 40-year career has taken Katz to competitions worldwide. But her love of the sport began at a public pool in her hometown of New York City. “My father almost drowned in his teens. Then someone taught him to swim—that was a gift of life,” she said. Her parents taught over 100,000 New Yorkers to swim and instilled in Katz a love of the water. “I’ve always wanted to just pay that forward.”
Her role as an Aquabelle consultant gave the lifelong teacher yet another outlet to share her passion with Aquabelle fans through multiple aquatic events. And since she is used to spending her days in the water, teaching several swim classes each week, she knew what worked and felt right in the pool. The key: comfort and stability. So, each chlorine resistant Aquabelle suit is an all-star. Engineered with an anti-bounce bra and tummy-control Power Mesh lining, each one piece swimsuit stays true to form in the water. Plus, most styles are made with Xtra Life Lycra fabric to ensure they will last up to 10 times longer than your regular suit!
