The Problem: Few Swimmers Can Afford Personalized Training
Swimming is one of the fastest growing sports—but resources are scarce.
While swimming is becoming more popular as a fitness activity, resources to instruct, train, and help athletes reach their goal just haven't caught up. Personal swim coaches are hard to find and can cost from $50 to $100 an hour. As a result, many swimmers are isolated with no way to grow.

MySwimPro: the #1 App Specifically Made to Train Swimmers
We've crafted training regimens and analytics so swimmers can be their best selves.
There are a number of fitness apps that cater to the market for running, biking, nutrition, yoga, and even meditation. But no one has tackled the problems that swimmers have—until now. We've helped isolated swimmers structure their training so they can achieve their goal, whether its losing weight or competing in a triathlon.
"Swimming on your own can be a challenge. One of the things I love about MySwimPro is it's a great way to track your goals, track your workouts, and keep yourself accountable."

HELP US MAKE SWIMMING ACCESSIBLE
Since my early childhood, I developed a great passion for the water. The freedom and enjoyment we experience as swimmers is often hard to describe. The feeling of weightlessness in the water is something we often take for granted, but it’s one of the many joys the sport of swimming offers humanity. I've combined my experience as a competitive athlete, coach, and all around swim nerd to create something that helps others achieve their goals and enhance their aquatic journey.
