Structure is good for most people. My success is swimming nonstop for 1 hr. Yes this fun. Eventually I will use more strokes all strokes.

    1. Hi Eric, so sorry for not getting back to you earlier! If you click on the Train tab, then you’ll see the next workout in your training plan at the top of the screen. Just tap that screen, then you’re ready to complete it! Either take it with you to the pool, or pair a smartwatch and be guided through it on a watch.

      1. I can’t get this to work. I keep hitting “Start Plan” then get an email, but have no idea how to get/load the workouts to my watch. Its not very intuitive.

        1. Hi Emmett, sorry to hear about your troubles you’re experiencing! Are you using an Apple Watch? Once you subscribe to a training plan, open the app on your phone. You should see your 1st workout on the top of your ‘Train’ tab. Open the workout and view it on your phone, then you should open the app on your watch and tap ‘Load Workout’ and it should sync (if your watch is already synced with your account). This guide to the Apple Watch is a helpful resource for starting a workout: https://support.myswimpro.com/hc/en-us/categories/360000347973-Apple-Watch

          If this still does not work, can you please send us an email at support@myswimpro.com? Thank you!

  2. Looks like fun! How does this integrate with the Apple Watch, though? It doesn’t seem to register as a workout when I open the Watch app.

    1. Hi Heather! We have a MySwimPro app for the Apple Watch. Once you download the watch, connect it to your Apple Health Kit and then you’ll be able to be guided through the workout, track your split times, heart rate and other data right on your watch! Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks!

  3. I am a swimmer all my life and now swim, mostly retired. I can do up to 1850 meters in 60 min. I would like to keep trying and achieve 1200 m in 30 min. Great goals.

      1. I can’t see the video in the iPhone App under the “Getting Started” training plan..

        Also, how can I see any videos on the Apple watch when I’m in the pool and my iPhone’s in the locker?

        Cheers

        1. Hi Robert! We are working on getting this fixed today. Let us know if you do not see the update. Sorry about that! As for the videos on the Apple Watch, that is a feature we are working on long-term and might have added in the future! Thanks! 🙂
