This app is designed for swim coaches to enter and run workouts. It is designed specifically for the iPad to make it easy to create and modify workouts and is highly customizable so a coach can use their own terminology and descriptions to setup a workout.
One of the really cool features of the app is the built in pace clock that can run the workout that you designed. Hook it up to a projector or large TV at the pool and you have a pre-programmed pace clock that is setup for your workout. It even shows the set list so the swimmers know what they are doing.
Another advanced feature in this app is the ability to define sets that adjust the interval after each repeat. With this feature, it is easy to design a set of 10x100 on 1:20 minus 0:02 each repeat (1:20, 1:18, 1:16, …). This type of set would be difficult to keep track of with a normal pace clock, but with the built-in pace clock it is easy to know the current send off.
This application has been designed and tested by a number of coaches from age group to college teams. I hope you find this app useful for setting up and running practices for your own team.

Love this program! It's great how you can set up everything quickly and always adjust. My biggest wish list items would be:
1- be able to copy and paste just a section of a workout instead of having to copy the whole thing.
2- be able to connect the test set section into the workout. So after you do the set you can have a print out of the workout and the times within it.
3- be able to include a signature type of box. So when you're setting up a workout it will have pre-saved notes or warm up and you just select which ones and it's automatically put into the workout.
I wasn't sure what to expect. I took a chance and bought the app. I am very glad that I did. 5 minutes in and I'm a kid in a candy store. This app has so many different options for tweaking your practices, you can literally write just about any workout for your groups. This is a steal for $15 as it is only a few functional capabilities away from being a pocket version of TeamUnify or TeamManager. But it's built to be a workout manager and it delivers. Adjust a few settings and it is compatible with your TeamManager software. Build your season, build your week, build your day, all for each practice group you have. Then click the pace clock option and have it run through your practice in real-time
The only less positive comment is that the pace clock itself seems to count a little faster than a standard second. But, that could just be me.
I highly recommend this app for coaches with an iPad!
Best coaching tools on the apple store
Version 4 has added test sets to the pace clock and I was able to run a test set with 10 swimmers on first try. Coaches, this is the best tool I have found.
I have used the previous version all season long and this version for a little over a month. The improvements in version 3.0 makes the entry faster and running workouts with the pace clock feature easy to fit the way practices are ran. The reporting features help keep to your season plan while improving the communication with your team.
The creator is responsive to making improvements and suggestions to make the product better. I highly suggest this product to new and old coaches!
