The Wave Workouts Story

After self-training for the majority of the 5 year build up to the 2020 Olympic Games, Michelle created Wave Workouts as a platform for anyone who has a keen interest in open water swimming or enjoys living an active lifestyle to sign up and follow her swim programs.

Michelle, who says she is incredibly blessed to have been trained and mentored by some of the best coaches in the world (Alistair Hatfiled, Graham Hill, Emanuele Sacchi and Wayne Ridden), still structures her programs in training the way you race.

“When swimming in the various environments open water has to offer one often has to adapt to challenges you could face. I’ve enjoyed finding creativity in creating and trialling sessions that best prepares you for your next open water swim.”

The Wave Workouts app is centred around the various distanced Waves where each swimmer would choose their preferred distance and then swim the workouts under that Wave. For instance all workouts in the 500m Wave only has swim workouts which are 500m long.
