Try our swimming fitness training plan

Mix up your weekly swim session with our swimming fitness training plan to improve your stamina and performance in the pool.

Each session of the swimming fitness training plan forms part of a 20-step programme. The plan will ultimately take you to swimming more than 70 lengths, as well as developing your swimming skills.

How To Follow The Swimming Fitness Training Plan

With all of the sessions you will notice that there is a warm up, skill development, main set and swim down.

This will give your swim session a clear structure to follow. There are also helping hints and tips throughout to keep you swimming in the right direction.

Depending on swimming experience so far, you may choose to start at session 1 and repeat, or a later session might be more appropriate for you. Either way, get in the pool, have a go and think about how the session felt.
