Strive Swim Helps Coach More Efficiently And Effectively

Bridger Bell, a long-time competitive swimmer and age group coach at Team Santa Monica, has created Strive Swim, a simple, intelligent swim practice development tool that has 2+ million practices written on its online/mobile platform.

"Strive offers infinitely many personalized practices for individual swimmers who train on their own, created new on-the-spot by Strive’s artificial intelligence algorithm, acting as a virtual coach, and tracks your progress over time with detailed key metrics," explains coach Bell.

Strive Swim's key advantages include its ability to provide appropriate intervals for different swimmers in the same workout, offer auto speed group adjustment, automatically create sprint and middle-distance versions of fundamental sets, and automatically suggest practices if a coach is pressed for time at the beginner level, for masters swimmers, or among elite competitive swimmers.

If I'm stuck in a writer's block, Strive's software can suggest variations that inspire an idea, that's useful. It can automatically make three different versions of sets for lower levels, that's useful,” commented Olympic open water swimming coach Dave Kelsheimer.

Strive is a tool that saves coaches an unrenewable resource: time," said Doug Fonder, President of the International Swim Coaches Association.

At the edge of The Devil’s Triangle, tropical storms, sharks, venomous jellyfish, and one of the strongest ocean currents in the world, all prove to be life-threatening realities. Timothy Wheeler’s documentary brings Diana Nyad’s extraordinary adventure to life as Diana sets out to prove that will and determination are all you need to make the unimaginable possible.

2014 Open Water Swimming Almanac



An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

An almanac is essentially a body of knowledge which is so complete that it enables people in different fields to make predictions about the future of their respective industries.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...
