For athletes seriously interested in potentially employing my coaching services – I follow a three step process
1) Athletes will fill out a short questionnaire in advance of any conversation/meeting – the purpose of which to get a rough assessment of their current ability/training regime/race experience to date and their goals for the upcoming season.
2) I will have either a skype or face2face meeting [location dependent – am based in Dublin] with the athlete to talk through the SWOT (Strength, Weaknesses, Opps, Threats) in relation to their target A and B goals – using the questionnaire to guide us.
This frank discussion will provide the following at a minimum
framework race schedule in terms of A and B goal,
skeleton proposed weekly training structure week that will be mapped to the athletes individual availability/constraints,
alignment of athletes/coaches expectations on how we will work together over the period of the program.
3) If all in agreement, we as a team will agree the kick off date, initial swim/cycle/run analysis sessions as required and start to push you towards achieving your goals
What People Say

Awesome plan, really seeing the gains as I go into the build phase of the plan, Steve responds quickly to emails while also providing interesting information along the way, will buy from Steve again 5 stars from me.
Returning to triathlon after a 20 year gap, I found Smart Endurance Solutions & Coach Steve Moody on Training Peaks. Three months on, I can say what a very positive difference it has made. The precious time and energy I am spending in training is more efficiently used and i've been particularly taken with Coach Steve's "PB Hit Squad" – a hybrid coaching/support group where I'm learning new skills, swapping stories with other triathletes and asking specific questions about my plan.
If you do what this coach tells you, I promise you you will go further, faster and feel better than you did before.
I have previously achieved significant improvements and PBs at 70.3 and full IM. This year I have returned to the Boss and in a very short time I am seeing benefits. I feel motivated to train, and I can’t wait to see what my race results are going to be.
I don’t think the guy can actually sleep because he always seems to be available
I'm really happy with my interaction and plans as set out by Coach Moody. I have a unique situation with my limiting schedule, and he was more than accommodating in working out a plan that fit that schedule, but also providing quality results. It also helps that his plans and coaching fit me from a budget standpoint as well. Not 24 hours after my race this year I had already contacted Coach Moody again for a second plan, and his response was immediate. Thank you Smart Endurance Solutions!
For me, a triathlon coach is somebody who not only produces training plans and feedback, but one who encourages one to be your best, to reach your true potential, and treats you equally no matter where you are at in the sport be it a beginner or category 1 triathlete. Steven Moody, definitely ticks those boxes. It has been such a great 11 months, that the journey will continue into 2019 to achieve some more goals!
I had been trying to beat my 5km Personal Best for a couple of years when I was recommended to contact Coach Steve about a training plan. I signed up for a 12 week plan and 4 weeks in I’ve already broken my PB. I’m excited now to see just how far I can go over the next 8 weeks. I would highly recommended Coach Steve if your serious about smashing your goals.
Yesterday I did the 1/2 IM Liuzhou and came second in my age group (65-69) in a great time(for me) of 5.39. I missed a Kona spot by 7 minutes but got the spot of 1/2 Nice world championships in September. I am thrilled!!!
Anyway, you deserve a lot of the credit for a training plan that got me to Nice and Kona isn’t dead yet so THANK YOU.
Steve is a legend!! Received my personalised training plan for my 1st 70.3 and it looks class, he’s blended existing sessions with other coaches. Each session gives pointers and tips for best performance. Feeling very motivated as I start out on my triathlon journey!!
