The Masters Program

WHAT IS The Masters program?

The Masters Program is one of the complete CrossFit programs we offer for the aspiring and ageing fitness competitor. This program offers volume in all aspects of strength, conditioning, and gymnastics in just one 60-90min session 5 days per week.

We know that most aspiring Masters do not have the time, or capacity, to dedicate 3+ hours a day in the gym. We have the knowledge and experience to create a program that allows effective, progressive, and safe competitive training for Masters.

This program will ensure you are ready to compete to your full potential during the Open, 1/4 Finals and 1/2 Finals. The Masters Program is challenging, and will push you to your limits. If you trust the process, this program will take you further than you thought that you could ever go.

Each day’s workouts include warm ups, and workout notes that clearly explain the intended stimulus, target scores, time caps, movement explanation, Masters specific scaling options, and more

WHO IS The Masters Program For?

We suggest this program for Competitors 40+ in age, who have competed in multiple Open seasons. It is designed for those looking to make 1/4 Finals and beyond, improve placement in online qualifiers, or simply want to improve or maintain strength and fitness as they age. 

The Masters Program is tailored with volume, intensity, and frequency specifically (and appropriately) programmed for the Masters competitor.

How long Does take each day & What Days per Week?

This program will usually take around 90mins to complete each day and will be completed in one session.

We follow the traditional CrossFit schedule 5 days on and 2 days “off.”

Workouts are included Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.. Thursdays are an active recovery day (often having the option of a swim, movement quality session, or yoga) and Sundays are a full rest day.

What should I do if this program is too advanced?


This is based off The Athlete Program but revolves around getting athletes to the level where they can begin to follow a competitive program. Those looking to get their first muscle up, link butterfly pull ups or a bodyweight snatch can all benefit from this program.

As a rule of thumb you should be able to do 3+ Unbroken Muscle Ups, 6+ Unbroken Strict HSPU and Snatch 80/55kg (175/120lbs) to be to The Athlete Program.

If you can’t manage these skills then TAP EVERYDAY ATHLETE is for you! You can find out more about the EVERYDAY Program here:
