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.

Yes – Commit helps you manage your workouts, and the key is that you can write workouts in Commit just like you would write them down on paper.

It’s kind of like Google Docs meets a really awesome calculator, 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

What makes it so special?

You can write sets just like you would on paper and Commit understands what they mean in swimming talk.

Here’s an example basic set in Commit:

6 x 75s @ 2:00 odds sprint fly evens easy free

*Notice how Commit understands odds and evens by tracking strokes and intensity of training.

You can write circuits within Commit too:

4x

4 x 50s pace @ :40

200 pull @ 3:00

6 x 25s @ :45 sprint

100 easy IM

*Notice how everything indented under the 4x is part of that circuit.

You can write workouts for multiple groups at one time within Commit:

*Notice how Commit assumes that if a set doesn’t have a specific “#” Group name attached to it, the set is for all swimmers in the water. If a set has a “#” group after it or as a header above it, Commit knows to include that set just for one group. Hence, the distance group is doing 3,700 and the sprinters are doing a total of 2,600.

You can format your workouts in Commit with colors, bolding, and different font sizes:

*Notice how in this workout, the coach color-coded the different sets based on group for easy reading.

  • Customize your own training terminology
  • 4 different plans. If you coach high school, club, college, elite, age-group, it doesn’t matter – Commit has a plan for you.
