8-Week Mermaid Transformation Series


Have you ever wondered what mermaids do to get fit?  Maybe you’ve met a mermaid in the pool and longed to learn the secret behind her graceful moves. Maybe you’ve watched mermaids from afar as they swam through the water and even flipped their tails in the air.

Fin Fun’s exclusive 8-week Mermaid Transformation Series is designed to help you get into the water with confidence and eventually transform your body into a stronger mermaid version of itself! Before you get started, check out our Mermaid Tail Ready video to ensure you’ll swim safely and be prepared to pursue our workout program.

Ready to get started? Watch our introductory video to learn what our transformation series is all about!

Throughout our video series, you’ll see our resident swim expert Christine Dustin explain and demonstrate the necessary steps to perform these water workouts over the course of 8 weeks.  You will learn specific mermaid moves like the dolphin kick, a crucial move that anyone who wants to swim like a mermaid should know! With practice, you’ll be swimming just like a REAL mermaid!

Fin Fun’s mermaid workouts include 8 weeks of printable sheets you can take with you to the pool to help guide you through the exercises you’ll be performing each day. Each week contains 3 days of workouts—so it’s a good idea to plan early which days you want to hit the pool. You can see a sample of a one-day workout below.

Here’s a tip for keeping track of your paper during swimming: get the paper wet so it adheres to a kickboard or put it inside of a large Ziploc bag to keep it dry. Discover the training material here.

    Hello my name is Brenda Guzman and I saw your ad on a news channel which I found very interesting. I was wondering if you are having any classes in the Los Angeles area anytime soon? Because I’m very interested to join…
    Thank you

    Hi, just wanted to know, if there are fin fun classes in the Philippines? I’m not really sure since I don’t live in the USA. Thanks

      Not that we know of. But you should do a local search online to find out!

    Thank you very, very much!!! There aren’t mermaiding lessons in my country (not even a proper Fin Fun dealer), so these workout cards will help me A LOT!!

    I have had a monofin for 3 months and was looking for ideas of skills to do when I found your 8 week course. I love it. Thank you so much. I printed it off, reduced it in size, laminated it, pit it on a keyring and have it tied to my drink bottle by the side of the pool. I am on week 3 and love the challenge. I have learnt skills like porpoising which I would have never thought of. I feel more confident with my tail and life in general. I even printed myself a sticker chart with each session on it to motivate myself. The online tutorials are great and the mermaid who explains it all is so wonderful in her descriptions. Thank you so much. I can’t wait to see what challenges lie ahead in the next weeks. Everyone is talking about it at my local pool (I am the only monofin users) and today one of my fellow lap swimmers turned up with her new and first ever monofin. She is signing up for your course too. Can’t praise your 8 week course enough. Would love a sequel!!!! Thanks🧜‍♀️🧜‍♀️🧜‍♀️🧜‍♀️

    Is this an appropriate workout to do during lane swim?

    • Posted by Fin Fun on June 26, 2021 at 8:25 pm

      Yes! This is perfect to do in a swim lane. Just make sure your local pool approves the uses of mermaid tails/monofins before diving in 🙂
