Custom Programming Advice

I'm looking for someone to create some custom programming for me to advance my goals as a masters competitor. I don't want ongoing (expensive) distance coaching, but someone to create a plan (around my goals/limitations) and maybe update after 3-4 months.
Any recommendations for someone knowledgeable, flexible and experienced with Masters?

Re: Custom Programming Advice

Have you ever used Beyond The Whiteboard? If not, I recommend researching it. I've started using it in the last couple of months and find it to be a very good tool in helping identify relative weaknesses and also assess the big picture of your programming. BTWB also has multiple coaches offering programming--not sure if any offer custom, but my guess is you could talk one of them into doing so for a fair price.

Invictus does offer Masters specific programming. My box owner has been following it and is quite pleased. He is very strong already, but his weakness (longer metcons) have improved significantly with the programming. He is in his early 40s and found he could no longer handle the volume of some of the better known Regionals and Games competitor's programming. The Masters stuff his is following is still tough, but takes into account limitations masters have in terms of not recovering as quickly as some of the 20 year old hotshots.

Re: Custom Programming Advice

Honestly, you are going to have a hard time finding someone to devote all that time in creating you an individualized master's program without spending some good cash. What are some of your weaknesses, goals, etc.?

Thanks, I'll probably just work with invictus and modify to my needs.

Re: Custom Programming Advice

Eric, I currently work with Michael FitzGerald out of OPT in Calgary. He does a lot of different stuff and has a pile of experience working with Masters athletes. He may do what you are looking for.

Also, as an upcoming Master I too would look at Invictus Masters as programming. I believe it is only $39/month. Which is pretty reasonable. A lot of those folks have moved onto the Qualifier and to the Games.
