Commit Swimming: the Newest Workout Manager for Swim Teams

Commit Swimming is a new kind of workout manager for swim teams. For far too long swimming software has lacked creativity and simplicity. Commit has changed that. The video below says it all:


Commit's pricing is fair and transparent. They are different from "the other guys", and it shows in their pricing. There are no setup fees, no hidden fees, no "lock-in" period, no contract, and there is no negotiating or haggling. Everyone pays the same, low price. It's $8/ month or $90/ year per coach. There are even discounts for teams with 3+ coaches using Commit. You can view information about team pricing at


Commit's service is second to none. And they do it with 3 guys. When you call or email Commit Swimming, you're speaking to a business owner, a software developer, a salesman, and a customer service rep all at the same time. There is no disconnect between what is promised to get done and what actually gets done. There is no "going up the chain". Someone will hear your concern and give you a viable solution on the spot 100% of the time. Period.


Commit Swimming is the only swimming software company that lets you sign up on the spot without speaking to a pushy salesman or pulling out your credit card. And, for a limited time, this stress free sign-up process comes with a 14 day free trial. No credit card required. No gimmicks. Just a true free trial. Sign up for your free trial today at It won't be around forever.


You're used to the routine. A sales rep visits your pool to show you just the basics of the new swim software your club bought. Next, you spend months convincing everybody on staff to adopt the new technology. That is a problem. Software should simplify your life, not complicate it… from day one… for everybody. Commit is so easy to use that you won't need anyone visiting you, you won't need an hour long webinar, and you'll barely need to watch a 5 minute tutorial! Everyone on staff will be up and running within days.


You shouldn't be restricted to one line input boxes when writing a set. Other workout managment software forces you to follow a structured format that removes the character of your workout. No one wants to sit there and click buttons to change the reps, the distance, and the interval for each set. With Commit Swimming, all you have to do is type! It's as easy as using a Word document, but it provides more data than traditional workout managers.


Do you want your swimmers to keep a log book? There is no need for them to write on a notepad anymore. With Commit's mobile app, the athletes on your roster can review their workouts after they happen and take notes on each one. It's a digital log book that speaks their language.


It's the perfect time to get more efficient and organized. There are always reasons not to make adjustments to your routine, but you don't want to look back in 20 years and realize that now you're "that guy stuck in his ways".

Backstroke Swimming Drills | Back to Front Crawl

This drill promotes good rotation through your body as you switch from a front crawl to a backstroke, and then back again to a front crawl. The two strokes are similar in many respects, and this switching action, from the legs through to the hips, will help improve your timing and coordination. It is also good for practising the rotation into a backstroke turn.
