Get Started Learning with a 7-Day Free Trial!

We’ve put together a Getting Started Guide that outlines first steps for diving into our introductory material. It’s designed to help new members jump right in and learn key concepts and motion mechanics that we think everyone should know.

And we want you to give it a try, totally free!

Masters in Mechanics is Cracking the Code’s premium membership plan which gives you access to our entire library: lessons, interviews, interactive tablature — everything we’ve done. To explore the site in more detail, from introductory workshops to in-depth interviews, you can sign up for a trial to get free Masters in Mechanics access for a full week.

Just sign up with the link below, and you’ll immediately be able to access everything on the site. Yes you’ll enter payment info as part of the signup process. No, we will not charge you for anything until the seven day period is up. If you cancel within that period, you won’t pay a dollar — or a pound, or a euro, or a ruble.

And even though we would prefer you stick around, we made sure canceling is easy. You can do that right from your “Account” settings, up there on the toolbar, with no hassle.
