I found the structure that I needed to try 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. In the past, I’ve had to come up with plans on my own and it makes it much easier to either take the plans outright or to modify them a bit as needed. It gives me confidence that we are moving in the right direction as opposed to making up things on my own. Chris Krupirarz, Ellicott City, MD, USA

What Users Say
I loved the technique drills – drills I make my athletes do and which I used to do myself when I was racing but had got out of the habit. And I like the pieces – sensible, doable, but hard enough.
I try to train 4 times a week or every other day – as you know recovery takes longer as we get older – I am 63 and only have one working lung so that has an effect – nonetheless I find the sessions work OK..
Faster Masters™ is definitely helping me – it is extremely hard to coach yourself sensibly.
