Feeling guilty after indulging in a chocolate bar or a few pints with the mates? Well, don’t dwell on that muffin top or growing beer belly, Just Swim and you can enjoy treats guilt free.
Just Swim is a simple goal setting app that helps you burn off calories and get a little fitter at a pace that suits you. No complicated swimming strokes needed, just breaststroke your way towards a trimmer you.
Burn off a takeaway, that sneaky dessert, a few glasses of wine, or a fried breakfast; the choice is yours. Set the calorie burn goal you want to reach and Just Swim acts as your silver bullet for indulgent moments.
If you want to get a little fitter choose a distance challenge from the length of a football pitch to a full-half marathon. There is something for everyone seeking to get a little healthier or fitter.
You don’t even have to know the length of the pool you are using. The app’s internal Pool Finder allows you to choose the pool you are swimming in. It will set the length automatically.
Other app features include:
- Access a running tally of the distance you cover and calories you burn over a week, a month, and a year.
- Keep a personal diary as you log your swims to remind you of your progress over time, or how you feel.
- Share your goal successes across your favourite social platforms
- Helpful articles and videos on lifestyle changes, improving wellbeing, water-based exercise ideas, stretching and warming up, swimming help, simple nutrition, and more.

Ratings and Reviews
Takes personal details and doesn’t let you login
I have just downloaded this app and have given my personal details when logging in which I am furious that this company now has despite them not allowing me to log in. Apparently they feel it OK to take people’s details yet not provide the service they were set out to give. Does this comply with new GDPR guidelines?! Sort it out. I would give it 0 stars because I actually have no idea what this app is actually like. Appalling. I hope they don’t sell my personal information on.
LOVE this APP
What a brillant idea! I'm a middle-aged lady and used to love to swim. I've been wanting to get back into the pool for a long time but found it a hassle to try to find my nearest pool whether coming back from work or near my home. This app finds me my nearest pool! I also did not realise how many calories I could burn off with swimming which has made me go back more and more. I've lost 1/2 stone in a couple of week. I can track how many swims, calories I've burnt off and also get goals! I also love the blog as it gives me tips and advice not just about swimming but about health benefits. The goals make me want to swim more as it challenges me to burn off chocolate moments and Friday night takeways.
Simple and Friendly
I wasn't sure about this app because of some mixed reviews but I have found it great. It is helping me change my habits. I choose a goal and then swim for it. How I do it is up to me and i keep notes for myself. I have never swam to keep fit before but this app is changing my mind. It's an easy way in to swimming. And it's free. My favourite is the blogs and calorie cruncher. If you are looking at the new year and wanting to start getting fitter and eating better, I recommend downloading this app.
