A swim coach can make all the difference in helping you swim faster and more efficiently. They can help structure workouts that are personalized to your speed, skill level and goals.
But most people can’t have a coach on deck all the time. That’s where the MySwimPro app comes in. Using your best times, our DynamicSwim algorithm creates Personalized Training Intervals for every Workout so you can swim with confidence, knowing you’re getting a Guided Workout that is customized to your speed and skill level.
How MySwimPro’s DynamicSwim Algorithm Works
The DynamicSwim algorithm understands how fast you are and tailors Workouts to your specific needs.
Edit your Personalized Training Intervals by visiting your Settings on your Profile. Tap Workout Settings and Swim Strokes to choose the strokes you swim and enter your best times for 100 yards or meters in each (if you aren’t sure, an estimate works too!). The algorithm then personalizes Workouts based this metric and a number of other variables including the Effort Level of the Set, distance, number of reps, Skill Level and more.

Example Swim Workout
The Workout below comes from the MySwimPro Workout Library. This Workout is for an advanced swimmer training in a 25 yard pool. The 3,000-yard Workout should take 74 minutes, and the intervals reflected on the Set are generated based on the best times entered on the Swim Strokes screen.
Below is the exact same advanced level Workout personalized for a slower swimmer:
This Workout will now take 101 minutes (up from 74 minutes), and offers a different set of intervals for every Set.
When you swim with Personalized Training Intervals, your training density (how much swimming you do per unit of time) is dramatically more efficient because you are taking adequate rest between Reps and Sets.
This improved efficiency allows you to get more out of your time in the water and enhance your aerobic conditioning.
