Swim a Mile Pro

Swim a Mile Pro


Anyone can swim a mile in just six weeks - we will teach you how!

Many people consider swimming to be the fastest and most enjoyable way to get in shape quickly.

Surprisingly enough, using our special training program, anyone can swim a mile freestyle continuously in just six weeks!

This app contains the training program and will keep track of your successes, as well as provide useful hints to help you on your way.

Quoting Ruth Kazez, author of the method:

"Young or old, fit or not, six weeks seems to be the most common length of time it takes to be able to swim a mile without stopping for rest. It requires three times per week and the willingness to be somewhat uncomfortable while stretching your aerobic capability.

As muscles enlarge to meet new demands, so does our ability to absorb oxygen. If we methodically increase our need, our body responds in kind. The amount of discomfort should be small, but it is necessary to pant a bit at the end of each effort and only partially recover before beginning another.

The number of breaths taken before continuing I guarantee will not seem enough. I also promise you’ll be surprised that you are able to continue much more easily than you imagined. The feeling of not having adequate rest is necessary in order to improve."

Cheap & Effective Simple program to help you add some distance to your sets, especially if you can do 2k+ in a session but struggle to do more than 200 straight.

Simple and excellent The most I ever swam before this app was 250yards....after getting this app and following the tips and workout I am up to 1100 yards and about to hit 1 mile in a week and a half.

Not really "anyone".. I completed the C25K without issue, but this app is assuming a lot. I expected it to be rough, but day one you are swimming almost half a mile. It also assumes you have the stamina to swim 100 consecutive meters, take a few breaths, and do it again four times. It looks like the intervals may be good once you get to a certain point, but it isn't nearly as low entry as C25K was. I'd say it's for low intermediate swimmers, not beginners. But, for 99 cents can't really complain.

Very good This app is really handy for tracking my training for the swim a mile, and for 64p you can't argue with the value, that's the price of a can of fizzy pop!
