How does the course work?

The best way to create a personal training plan, is to do it.

A training plan that changes performance, is easier to create once you understand the mechanics of a great training plan. The How To Create Your Annual Training Plan combines audio and video lessons from Bill (with help from experts), along with frameworks and tools designed to guide your thinking and practice. By using these tools (and doing this practice) you’ll get direct feedback and customised insights on your current physical status and future planning. Our Faster Alumni Group on Facebook will be buzzing, filled with your peers engaging on topics that matter to you.

The typical participant in our course gives and receives more feedback over the course of the three weeks. It’s true: the more you put in, the more you get back. The discussion component on the Live Zoom Calls is key, because that’s where you take concepts and translate them into strategies for your own plan. And it works.

Why is the course so expensive?

We’re charging more than other online courses for a simple reason: We want committed students. No one in the course or attending the Alumni Zoom calls is browsing around or hoping for a quick hit. You’ll be surrounded by other people willing to do the work and contribute along the way. ($287.00)

Some people, those who know how much a college course costs, have asked us why the Course doesn’t cost much more. After all, the typical college course costs at least 10+ times as much (and delivers far less value). We believe that anyone should be able to learn How to Create Your Annual Training Plan at a reasonable cost, and we believe that a product should deliver more value than its sticker price.

Is there a money-back guarantee?

Show Your Work Money Back Guarantee: Our courses and Online Workshops are incredibly effective. Check out what one of our alumni had to say.

“I completed the course earlier this year, and what I learnt has opened my eyes to what I was truly capable of, and transformed the way I train and prepare. I used to always train hard, yet never knew if I was really training the right way. Since I have done the course, I now KNOW what I need to do to reach my potential. I don’t train any more than I used to, yet I am going faster on the ergo and on the water. I can better plan my training to achieve balance with my family and the business that I own and operate.

I highly recommend this course to anyone that wants to train smart vs. just training harder all the time.”

J Van Vulpen, The Netherlands

Still, just in case you’re hesitating, consider our 100% guarantee for this course: If you find that it hasn’t met your expectations, simply drop us a note after you’ve participated through all the lessons and attended the online Zoom calls, and we’ll refund your entire tuition. We’ve found that when our students contribute to the course, they get back far more than they put into it. Sometimes life gets in the way. If you need to withdraw from the workshop before you complete it, we’re happy to defer you to a future session at no cost. Just ask. To be fair to all, we don’t offer refunds for non-participation.

What do we cover in the interactive sessions?

Bill will be there on each of the Live Zoom Class calls, to help guide you and help ensure that the course flows smoothly, sharing insights from other alumni, his own personal experience, and occasionally comment with just the right question at just the right time. The class will also be streamed Live to the Faster Alumni Group on Facebook.

Are there exams?

We’re delighted to say NO. And no grades, either. We feel really strongly that a test-and-measure culture will not help you to learn here. Better to learn by taking action. 

Is the workshop accredited?

Proudly, no. Accreditation makes sense for a certain kind of institutions delivering a certain kind of education. But we’re not willing to build a test-and-measure culture, not willing to embrace an ancient-yet-standard curriculum, and mostly, we’re not willing to distrust our students. We’ll be delighted to offer you a certificate of completion when the course is successfully completed, and even better, we encourage you to find someone at your rowing club, cross fit centre or gym, who will personally vouch for your actions and progress.

Can I get a certificate at the end?

Every student receives a certificate as a PDF, suitable for printing and framing. 

How long does the material stay active?

The course content is available until 6-months after the course closes. After that, enrolled students are invited to join our alumni group, on Facebook and participate in future courses with new students as alumni. This way you get access to new materials and can contribute to your own and others learning for the life of the course.

Can I post confidential materials in the Facebook group?

The rules of our discussion group are:

  • Contribute more than you ask for.
  • Be kind.
  • What is said here, stays here.

With that said, please use your best judgment. If it’s not something you can happily post online, best to disguise the details before you post it here.

Will Bill answer ALL of my questions?

Definitely not. And the good news is that you don’t need him to. The course is designed to give you a compass and a template, not a map. The map, the details of your particular situation… that’s all up to you. We hope the Annual Training Course will help empower your decisions along the way.

Is there an affiliate program?

Yes there is for past students. We’re hoping that if you find the course useful, you’ll happily spread the word to your friends and colleagues. Those interested in becoming an affiliate, contact Bill directly via email.

Should I consider Bill’s other courses on Teachable?

Bill has four top-rated courses on the Teachable platform. Each of which has been taken by hundreds of Masters rowers, just like you. There are reasonably priced courses on; 

  • How to Train With Heart Rate For Rowing
  • The Ultimate Race Week Plan
  • How to set your boat up to go Fast (December 2020 launch)

We know that the peer to peer interactive engagement and live online approach we take in our premier course, is the most effective way to learn, but you might find that the low cost of entry to the online only courses, makes them worth an hour or two of your time.

The key difference is the other Faster courses, don’t offer the peer to peer discussion groups or live interactive Zoom calls. And, that’s the magic of what Annual Training Plan offers.
