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 can’t think why anyone wouldn’t benefit from Faster Masters.
I can’t do every workout as scheduled, so I print them and keep, doing new ones until they are all completed, and then go back and repeat the ones I found either hard or helpful.
The program looks at the rower as a whole – strength, stability, rest, eating – most of which are not addressed by coaches that just run workouts to babysit their rowers – “Meet me here; ok, do 2x1000m. Go. …. Paddle for 3 minutes. OK, Go…… Back to the boathouse.” I find this extremely UNproductive. I can do this on my own and take the time to add in drills when I feel something isn’t going right.

I really value the training plans. I don’t always follow them strictly but I do follow the principle of the three hard sessions.

I have gained and followed some useful ideas about rigging for masters (shorter inboard) and interesting ideas like putting tape on the loom to check for digging.

The land training is really useful and I think many masters don’t have that.

I think my training is better for it and I have picked up useful technique tips on the way.

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.

Faster Masters – Training, Community, Rowing Lifestyle


A mentality that you choose to be your own best version of yourself.
  You are ready to pay attention to your lifestyle, your health, how you train and
  how you row.

You are at a point in your life where you are ready to take care of yourself.
Becoming a FASTER MASTER means setting aside your doubts, all
your fears, all your excuses and every reason you think
you can’t do it.

What is your commitment to yourself? Take care of yourself, do something
that excites and challenges you.
Sometimes this means not being over-committed – making time for what
matters to you.

Who are YOU?

Sometimes you need help in your back pocket which is personal and is YOUR journey – progress in your own way.

Ask questions – get support in private.


Our coaches will help you.

Make your new habit so small that you can’t not do it.

You row for Faster Masters; you are a
“type” of oarsman.

You want to do something that challenges you. That is out of the box.
Rowing is different, it takes more dedication than running a marathon, it takes more commitment over the long term. You have to go through extra steps to row. The time you spend on the water is transformative. You may be looking for nature, you may be looking for really intense fitness, you may be looking for flow in your movements, you may want to
push yourself to the absolute limit.

Masters sweep coxed 4

All are possible with Faster Masters Rowing.

Normally one on one rowing coaching costs you thousands of dollars.
But we were frustrated hearing about people not getting coached,
of clubs giving the masters no attention, giving them the old boats, of people
trying to figure it out alone.


And so we wrote this program for people JUST LIKE YOU.

Become the person you want to row with

Being welcomed, one of the crowd, happy to contribute to the overall crew group, yet also racing anyone who challenges you. You are joining a team. You have access to really good coaches here, who know the answers, who are a huge resource for you.

We’ve got your back. Are you ready?
