Why Swim Workouts To Go?
Swimming is an excellent form of exercise that can be beneficial to many people throughout their lives. To receive the full health and wellness benefits of swimming, it can be important to train different energy systems in a balanced way.
The Swim Workouts To Go app posts new workouts to its site daily and offers both freestyle and stroke practices (see the Workout Focus section for the days of these workouts.) Written instructions are included under the Terminology page. Feel free to swim freestyle during designated stroke or stroke during freestyle sets if that better suits your training needs.
How Long Are the Workouts?
Depending on the swimmer's ability, the workouts should take between 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours. Most workouts average 4000-5000 yards. Where it says between 1-4 rounds, this is the logical place where swimmers with less endurance or less time to spend in the water can limit the practice.
Who writes the workouts?
Swim Workouts To Go is produced by Cambridge Masters Swim Club Head Coach, Abe Rogers, and Harvard Women’s Swimming Head Coach, Stephanie Morawski. Abe, a former Olympic Trials competitor in Triathlon, a collegiate varsity swimmer and a long time masters swimmer and coach, has 20 years of experience training athletes at all levels. Olympic Trials finalists, and Harvard to several Ivy Championships. She collaborates with Abe on season planning and training ideas. Both coaches have a love for the sport and they want to share their workouts to promote swimming as a form of exercise at home or on the road.
Disclaimer: Before participating in any physical activity or if you are pregnant or returning from a pregnancy, illness or injury, please consult a doctor to make sure you are in good health before performing any type of exercise. Swim Workouts To Go does not claim to improve your overall fitness or make you a faster swimmer; we are simply supplying workouts to individuals who want consistency in swim training provided by a coach.

Swim Coach (HS/Club/College/CC)
As a swim coach and former swimmer I find this app to be a missing link for a quick idea for a swim workout. I can remember off season college training where I was in search of a different workout. Sometimes I simply don't even feel like writing up a well constructed swim workout which would end up leading me to not even going for a swim at all. SwimWorkout gives good choices and "change-ups" for a nice swim workout that is easy and fast.
Also, as a swim coach I am asked frequently to write up workouts for people. As much as its a compliment that people would like me to write up a swim workout for them, at times it's bad timing or you may simply not feel like it.
In the end, this app serves not only swimmers on the go but it also can serve college level, club, high school, and master swimmers with ease. I highly recommend this app for any frequent swimmer and swim coach.
I have been searching for an app like this for some time and am so pleased to have finally found it! I love the variety and intensity of the workouts and even as a fairly new swimmer I have no trouble adapting the workouts to my own level. Whether a pro or a novice this is an incredibly useful app!
Great app for swimmers!
Easy to use, love the very helpful link to locate places to swim when we travel! Definitely worth buying this app!
