I must tell you your video critique was phenomenal and yesterday I went out and did the drills and my stroke length magically improved and my splits went down.

Rowing is already pretty expensive so I need to strongly consider costs. And I found the structure that I need to go it alone in terms of practices planning. Especially this year with the pandemic and no coach, I’ve relied heavily on Faster Masters to give a steady, progress-based approach to practices.

I hesitated for some months before buying a membership due to doubts about committing to a regular payment. I took the plunge when I compared it to the cost of a few bottles of wine and decided the programme would be better for me than the wine!

Filling a gap that I experience at my club

I trailed the 1 month membership and was sold.

The testing that was included gave me what I was missing.  The 20min erg trial to allocate splits is pretty much spot on with the heart rate work that I have been doing.

I have just signed up to the 12 month membership because of this.

[Faster Masters ] has filled a gap that I have experienced at my club.  They are all focused on 2k racing and testing is based around this.  It is simply a different race style to 1k and no real knowledge on training masters or peri/menopausal women.

If I try to get a program from the club it tends to be from extremely fit men in their 50s who don’t understand that I simply fatigue to the point that I cannot follow their program and still function through daily life.

The work load based on the testing that you have provided has turned that around.

78 years old gets surprising continuous improvement

I will state that the training plan most definitely works, and extremely well.  While following the plan as closely as possible during my 78th to 79th year I improved my performance continuously, and actually somewhat to my surprise. So I wish much continuing success to FMR.

I found the content interesting, and the training programs useful. Am currently going through the December base training program, and can feel that I’m getting a lot of benefit from it. This is even through I’ve competed in head races all (Australian) winter, and had performed well in summer races prior to starting the program. I did the sculling intensive program last year, and also found it useful. The downside is the connectivity of the platform. It seems to take twice as long to load as any other website, and I've routinely find that I’m not recorded as enrolled on the annual subscription, although it’s still less than a year since I subscribed. The problem went away a couple of times, then last time it didn’t, but was fixed after I logged a job. It’s happened again, and I can’t get access to the support site (just a blank page). I’ll think hard before subscribing again..

A diverse range of topics covered that is specific to Masters Rowing. Not only technical or fitness topics specific to matters rowers but other practical topics like club house management and other items of interest. The paid items are well worth it, such as seasonal training plans, which I find extremely useful as a self coached master (a not uncommon situation for a masters rower) that builds me up to a racing season (regardless of hemisphere) and is varied to alleviate boredom. Then there are one off items, for example, rowing with data or rigging for masters, all of which have delivered real value to me, as well as being highly interesting and delivered by world experts in their fields. Although I haven't tried it yet there is also individual coaching available from the founders who are both experts in coaching, especially for masters. Today I also ordered a Spacer Placer Tool that the founders had come up with, another exam of innovate practical item offered by Fasters Masters, albeit this is useful for anyone in rowing using shared boats. Finally the founders, Rebecca and Marlene are always very approachable and friendly. 🤩

A truly brilliant resource that understands, supports and encourages Masters to meet their full potential. I'm subscribed to a couple of their programmes and access the podcasts regularly. Highly recommended. Thank you.

Our club has excellent support for masters rowers. Nevertheless, I find Faster Masters to be an excellent supplement to the training programs and coaching available at the club. I row a single and having the extra drills and in depth analysis of the rowing stroke provided by Faster Masters, in mind while I am alone on the water to be a great supplement. Rebecca Caroe and Marlene Royle have overcome my early skepticism about the format and content.

Good information for mature rowers. We aren't all 20+ somethings anymore. Our needs are different.
