Average Weekly Training Hours 02:56
Training Load By Week

This plan is designed to be simple to execute challenging enough to support weight loss goals. Each week consists of six swim workouts you can do in a pool or open water to promote calorie expenditure. There is one day of rest, but that is optional and users can choose to do a do a walk, yoga, or something else instead. There are three swim interval workouts included each week to add intensity into the plan, to elevate overall calorie burn, and increase fitness levels more efficiently. Each week progresses, so the user is always challenged and avoids a plateau. PLEASE NOTE: weight loss is highly subjective to the individual and results will vary. Weight loss is very dependant on how much the individual eats on a daily basis. A consistent daily caloric deficit is needed to lose weight. Users trying to lose weight should track both food and fitness calories to make sure they are meeting their target. Enjoy the plan and have fun!

GO FIT LIFE!

There's nothing better than helping someone achieve a dream. I started coaching athletes over a decade ago, and have worked with hundreds of individuals from beginner levels starting a new chapter in their life to age-group competitive athletes looking to break a personal record. I'm new to TrainingPeaks and so my available plans are limited, but if you have a goal in mind and want a plan from me that is not listed in my online store, contact me and I'd be delighted to write you one.
