6 benefits you experience when you start using Commit Swimming


“I am more organized and in control.”

With Commit, you are more organized, practice is more organized, it’s easier to write workouts that fit into the pool time you have, and workouts run more smoothly.

Coaches using Commit often say that once they start using Commit they can’t picture going back to life without it.

And a big reason for why Commit sticks with coaches like you is because you end up being more organized and in control.


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

You might currently use different workout management software or you might right workouts on paper or in a Google Doc.

No matter how you write your practices today, you will save hours of time every week after you switch to Commit.

Coaches using other workout managers often switch to Commit and note it’s simplicity and time savings compared to other options out there.

You don’t have to manually tally yardage and time to know how long your workout is or how long it will take. Commit takes care of that for you as you type.

In general, your ability to log workouts will become a lot easier with Commit, as it is user-friendly and saves you time in many ways.


“Our staff is more organized and the seasons run more smoothly when they can not only see their season planned out but also track it daily.”

You can write workouts in Commit and have all of your coaches access them digitally from anywhere.

This is great for developing new coaches, staying in sync across your program with regards to seasonal planning and program consistencies.

With Commit, your staff is more organized and things run more smoothly across the board.

Your coaches grow much faster because of the transparency and sharing of ideas across your team.


“Better quality control of team programming & athlete development”

Your overall program quality and athlete development will begin to improve and show steady consistency once you start using Commit.

Coaches like you often cite that it is easier to address weaknesses in the training program, that there is better overall practice structure/ variety for athletes, and that seasons become more analytical with Commit.

Commit forces you to be more precise in your training plan which has the downstream effect of improving the training quality across your entire team.


“The program broke 17 school records this season”

You see in plain sight what your training volume and breakdown looks like through time in Commit.

Because of how Commit makes it easy for you to analyze weeks and months within your season, you can see the bigger picture while writing a workout (this just isn’t possible in a Google Doc).

Coaches often mention how Commit helps significantly with rest and taper by providing fast and easy access to real training data.

You will begin to see more consistent performances and improvements from swimmers across multiple seasons.

Many coaches correlate taper success with their use of Commit.


“Swimmers pay more attention to workouts”

If it’s not already clear how adopting Commit Swimming will benefit you as a coach and your program as a whole, increased swimmer engagement should push you over the top.

Because Commit comes with an athlete version of the app for swimmers on your team, swimming programs that use Commit notice swimmers paying more attention to workouts.

Coaches generally say that swimmers are more interested in their training and show an increased sense of engagement.
