Workouts: These swimmers got to try it early
FORM Workouts: the most game-changing swim technology since the FORM Smart Swim Goggles! Guided workouts have only been available to the public as of today, but we gave a group of swimmers early access to Workouts to test it out behind the scenes. We asked them to give us their honest feedback on our latest, first-of-its-kind features so we could make the best experience possible. Equally, we wanted to hear what these swimmers loved about these new features too.
Here’s what swimmers are loving about Workouts:
- It makes swimming easier
- There’s a ton of variety
- It makes swimming more enjoyable
It makes swimming easier
Compared to other forms of exercise, swimming is commonly considered one of the “harder” activities. By harder, we’re referring to getting to the pool and making sure you have all your gear, staring endlessly at the black line, and losing track of how many laps you’ve done. Choosing what to do before you head to the pool, how far to swim, what strokes to swim, what gear to use, and what drills to do takes time and effort.
Having guided workouts in the FORM goggles takes the guesswork out of your swim. With hundreds of workouts to choose from by distance, time, and category, every swimmer can find the perfect workout to match their mood.
There are workouts for every skill level; from the busy parent with only 30 minutes to spare, to the triathlete preparing for their next race. Once you get to the pool with your workouts loaded onto your FORM goggles, all you have to do is jump in and swim.
You might be craving a recovery workout and time to relax while you swim, but you also want some structure. We’ve got guided workouts for that. FORM Workouts make it easy to fit a 30-minute swim into your busy schedule, but will also leave you feeling accomplished. If you’re swimming through a more challenging workout, you can focus on your technique and effort for each interval.
Your FORM goggles will let you know how many intervals you have left, when to rest, and when you’re on the last length of each interval.
There’s a ton of variety
We get that all swimmers are different and are on their own unique journeys to master the sport. With this in mind, we’ve created hundreds of guided workouts that will make swimming fun, interesting, engaging, challenging, and rewarding for swimmers at any level. This is just the start, too, as we’ll be regularly adding new workouts to our extensive library. Our workout library includes six categories (from recovery to power), distances ranging from a few hundred meters to over 4000+ meters, and three different intensity levels. Trust us, there’s a workout for everyone!
It makes swimming more enjoyable
Eliminating the need for pace clocks, mental math, or bulky activity trackers makes swimming more fun. Gone are the days of staring at the black line or aimlessly swimming laps. You no longer need to count your laps in your head or decide what to swim from session to session. Now, your pace clock is always with you and your goggles will let you know exactly where you’re at in your workout. If you like seeing your swim data, you’ll see it in real-time in your goggles and after your swim in the FORM Swim App. Your time spent in the pool can be spent relaxing or improving your technique while being engaged the entire way.
With Workouts, FORM has made enjoyable and engaging swim training available to everyone. Not only do we want to empower every swimmer with motivation for each swim, but we also want to help you improve and feel more confident in the water.
