4x Olympian & Swim Instructor

Don't let the 4x Olympian title fool you. I failed swimming lessons...twice! If failure taught me anything, it was to understand that success was not was earned. In my journey, I went from a floundering summer club swimmer, to representing Canada at 3 Olympics, an Olympic Bronze Medal, a World Championship Title (plus 1 silver and 3 bronze), 33 National titles, 6 Canadian Records, and 2 World Records. Unfortunately, depression took it's toll, and coupled with chronic back spasms, I retired from swimming immediately following my Olympic Bronze medal in 2012. I used to swim 9x every single week. Over the course of 7 years after I retired, I swam less than that in total. Come to the summer of 2019, while my wife and I were visiting her home country Lebanon, we decided we wanted to film the Freestyle Mastery system that we had developed and had been teaching to swimmers in small clubs all over Canada. The results were so great and the system so simple, we wanted to make it available to swimmers all over the world. So we found a magical pool located on a mountainside which looked down the valley towards the Mediterranean, and we began filming. I say this was a magical pool, because something magical happened. I began to rediscover my relationship and love for the water again. And even though I had been out of the water for 7 years, it didn't feel like it at all. And with only 1 year until the Tokyo Olympics, at the age of 35, I decided to come out of retirement and try to do something no other swimmer in history had done before. Qualify with less than a year of training. It only took 6 months. At my 2nd meet, I swam under the Olympic qualifying time in the 50m free. Then in Tokyo, leading off our 4x100m Freestyle relay, I led off in a time of 47.99 seconds, and at the age of 37, became the OLDEST SWIMMER IN HISTORY to break 48 seconds.
My goal is to make quality training plans available to all swimmers.

What makes Swim Boss by Brent Hayden different? How do I know it will work for me?
Because I created this app with you in mind. All of the swim workouts in this app were created in partnership with my longtime coach Tom Johnson who has coached at 10 different Olympic Games. We wanted to create workouts that mimic the style of workouts that high performance swimmers do, but in a way that are easy to follow and achievable for swimmers like you. No more long slogging continuous laps up and down the pool. These workouts are broken down into shorter more engaging sets designed to get you faster, fitter, and achieving that swimmers body you've always desired faster than ever. We've also got dryland training and nutrition guides and recipes so there's no more excuses.
I'm a beginner, is Playbook for me?
No matter where you are in your swimming journey, my app can help you succeed. Workouts and programs posted in the app are for any level of swimmer. Each workout has 3 different distance options (approx 1500m - 2000m, 2000m - 2500m, & 2500m - 3000m) Plus, trainers walk you through all exercises with easy-to-follow videos and simple written instructions. This means you’ll be able to do all the moves easily, accurately, and safely.
Do I need to purchase equipment?
It is definitely recommended to purchase your own equipment, however some pools will have things like kickboards and pullbouys available to use. Here is what we recommend to get the most benefits from the training program: -Kickboard -Pullbouy -Short fins -Alignment Snorkel -Hand Paddles
How much does the app cost?
You can join my app and community for FREE for the first 7 days. After that, you'll pay $14.99/month or $99.99/year. That breaks down to just $0.49 a day or $0.27 a day — less than your morning cup of coffee!
