For swim coaches with busy schedules and lofty goals, Commit Swimming is the workout management software that helps you save time, stay organized, and reach your goals.

Commit helps you manage your workouts. And, with Commit, you can type workouts just like you would write them down on paper.

Think of Commit as having the flexibility of Google Docs with the added benefit of a really awesome calculator, specifically for swim coaches.

Who uses it and what are they saying?

  • Coaches from 89 different countries write, on average 6 workouts per week in Commit.
  • >80% of teams using Commit say Commit’s customer service is “significantly better” than the other swimming software companies.
  • 9 out of 10 coaches using Commit are “highly likely” to recommend it to other coaches.

“This is an enormous step forward from anything else that’s available. It’s a game changer.” 

– Matt Kredich, Head Coach @ Tennessee

  • “It is user-friendly:-) and saves me a lot of time”
  • “Saves time!”

Hey there DOITFORDALE and M D E, I’m really happy that you both like the software. But, I’m of course sad you aren’t using it! You feel the monthly price at $19 is too high. I hear that.
