The Athlete Program

WHAT IS The Athlete program?

The Athlete Program is one of the complete CrossFit programs we offer for the serious fitness competitor. This program offers volume in all aspects of strength, conditioning, and gymnastics at a volume and intensity to take you to your peak levels of fitness.

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

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

WHO IS The Athlete Program For?

We suggest this program for athletes that have competed in multiple CrossFit Open seasons. It is very well suited for those looking to make CrossFit Games 1/4 Finals and beyond, improve their placement in online qualifiers, or want to push themselves to be better on a daily basis.

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

This program will usually take around 2-3 hours to complete each day and may need to be broken up into 2 sessions (although some of these sessions are optional).

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.

We also offer a single session program, this program offers all the benefits of The Athlete Program in just a single (around 90min) session daily. You can find out more about that here:

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:
