In this post, New York-based MySwimPro Member Shannon Capuano (@shanionie) shares how swimming with MySwimPro helped her reach her goal of swimming 500 yards continuously!


Hi there! My name is Shannon, and I live in Rochester, New York. I am 42 years old, have been married for 15 years and have 4 lovely children. I am a stay-at-home-mom with a little Etsy business.


I have always loved the water and swam competitively in high school. Now 20-something-years later, I am picking swimming back up for fitness.
Before I found the MySwimPro app, I really wasn’t training properly. I was just going to the pool and doing my own thing. It was not working.


When I first started swimming again in January, my goal was to swim 500 yards without stopping. To reach this, I committed to swimming 3-5 times a week for close to an hour.


After just 3 workouts with the MySwimPro app, I cut my swimming time in half! It was awesome to see progress so quickly.
Less than a month later in February I’m proud to say that I accomplished my goal! I was easily able to swim 500 yards nonstop.


It wasn’t easy to be consistent, but with some guidance from the app and motivation from the community in the Facebook Group, I was able to reach my goal.

“I am following a MySwimPro Training Plan, which makes it really easy to always get a good swim in. I load the pre-set workouts on my Fitbit smartwatch, and just swim!”

I have really enjoyed the MySwimPro community as we encourage each other, but also it’s a great place to ask swimming related questions.

“I have not seen another app like MySwimPro that sends workouts straight to my watch. It really is pretty cool.”

I’m excited to continue my training and seeing my times improve. I love that swimming works out my whole body and that feeling when you’re walking around sore the next day 🙂

Thank you so much for sharing your experience, Jill! You are a true inspiration and love seeing you reach your goals with those training plans!
