A training plan is a critical component to the success of reaching your goals in swimming! Here are some additional ways this plan is designed to help you get there.

  1. Time: During the week, you may feel stretched on time. This plan sets all your workouts ahead of time for you; therefore, you are more able to fit them into your hectic schedule than you thought. You’ll know exactly what you’re doing for the week and how long each workout is.
  2. Setting Goals: Having a chart makes makes your goal much easier and attainable Having a goal gives you something to work towards and a plan helps get you there!
  3. Staying Focused: By having a plan ahead of time, you know exactly what you’re going to do and when you’re going to do it. One of the worst things that can happen is to only swim when the mood hits you (or not at all). A plan will keep you focused on where you’re going.
  4. Staying Motivated: By adhering to a weekly schedule, you may find that you are staying motivated between and during every session more so than if you didn’t have a plan. Seeing the entire plan laid out in front of you will help visualize success and keep you on track.

  1. Good Morning,

    Quick question: which level of your programs have personalized workouts? I looked at the 8 week endurance program, but I am swimming 3,000 – 4,000 / session now and would like to move into the 2 – 3 hour 6,000 – 7,000 meter area.

    My Very Best,
    Steven Hugens

    1. Hi Steven, thanks for the message! We are actually launching a Long Distance Training Plan in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned! In the meantime though, I recommend the 10-Week IMX Challenge Training Plan (https://myswimpro.com/blog/2018/06/21/10-week-imx-pro-challenge-training-plan/).

      These workouts are a bit shorter (~2k meters) than what you’re looking for, but since they incorporate a lot of stroke work, they are higher intensity. You can also always adjust any workout so it’s personalized to your goals. I’d also recommend doing the Workout of the Day. They’re usually longer, and you can always add more distance onto them if you’d like. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thank you! – Paige

  2. I just ended the free-trial period of the Swimpro app. I completed the 8-week Enhance Speed plan, I improved my stroke and speed, I liked the trainings. When I searched in your app for another interesting training plan I could’nt find anything I liked. I do not like the long distance trainings, I like to improve my personal record in freestyle especially.
    If I would sign up for monthly subscription, can I find more training plans that focus on speed and technique with Freestyle?

    1. Hi Karin! We are always releasing new training plans, so with your Premium membership you will be able to access all the new plans that are released in the coming months. I would recommend that you try the ‘Enhance Speed’ or the ‘5k Open Water’ training plan next! Those are both plans for the pool and are perfect for improving your freestyle. Let me know if you have any further questions! – Paige
