Coach Steve’s training package helped me to perform better than I ever thought possible in the 2017 West Australian 70.3 ironman. I went from being a middle of the pack finisher to finishing in the top 20% in my age group by following his intermediate 12 week plan on Training Peaks. I actually enjoyed the whole training period and went into the event feeling confident and strong. The plan was easy to follow with full detailed sets and is incredible value for money. The swim sets are particularly great with enough variety to keep it interesting. I’ve come back for another training program this year and Steve has been awesome answering my emails, almost in real time conversation. Highly recommended!
I thoroughly enjoyed the IM plan you developed for 50+ Athletes. I made it through the entire program with zero injuries. This combined with the use of Fulgaz, really prepared me well for IM Tulsa.
Extremely happy with a 14:34:01 for my first IM finish!!! From powerlifting 10 years ago to Ironman today!😊
Can’t thank you enough!
Grabbed a nice age group win in my first tri of the season yesterday – helped of course by your training plan! 🙂
Happy return to racing yesterday at the Nottingham Outlaw Half!
5 weeks ago I was seriously doubting my ability to finish, and started looking ahead to my A race – Weymouth 70.3 in September. With a little help from Smart Endurance Solutions in adapting a newly purchased plan (for Weymouth) in order to get me to the start line yesterday I managed to surpass my expectations of the day and finished the half marathon super strong! Thanks Coach Steve 👍
Thanks for your help in identifying a plan to prepare for Ironman Cork, found it brilliant and really useful to give me the structure I needed.
Looking forward to race day
I just bought your training peaks strength training plan. I like how you structure things – this will help me enormously
I’m actually wrapping up one of your plans right now for a half iron in Waco on Oct 16th. Really enjoy using your plans as they truly help me finish strong and give me great confidence going into race day
I recently decided after completing a few marathons and the odd triathlon that I wanted to take on the challenge of a full Ironman. Knowing I needed a structured training programme I began to research the many training programmes available online and spoke to others who have previously done these events. The name that kept coming up was Steve Moody and Training Peaks. The variety of programmes, designed for all levels are second to none. Given the commitment and discipline required the programmes are not mundane, sessions are varied and really well constructed. However, above all else, having Steve’s input and help is the biggest benefit, along with his encouragement and reassurance he’s always just an email away and he always responds swiftly. Overall, although slightly daunted by the prospect of tackling my first Ironman I couldn’t be happier having Steve and Training Peaks helping me along the way. In a nutshell I couldn’t recommend Steve and Training Peaks highly enough.
Last year I set a goal to race in Ironman Western Australia. Considering at that stage I was 122kg and hadn’t raced in 9 years, it was a big ask.
I needed a plan.
Through Training Peaks, I discovered a 48 week Ironman plan for beginners offered by Coach Steve. The plan was reasonably priced for the duration and detail and offered support via email.
Had i of known how much support, the timeliness of the support and the quality of the support before I signed up, I’d had thought I was getting the too good to be true plan.
Steve is FABULOUS!
He has been a wonderful support over the last 9 months. He has been patient with my questions, all 3000 of them. His advice has been wonderful and his encouragement has been appreciated.
So brilliant has Steve been over my journey to date, when my Ironman was cancelled and I deferred to Ironman Cairns in June, Steve was the first I emailed to lock in a new 70.3 plan to take me to Geelong 70.3 in February and on to my first Ironman in 2021.
Today I’m fitter than I’ve ever been and thanks to the super easy to follow plan that builds progressively and which is achievable each week, I am also 27kgs lighter.
Thanks Steve for being there on my journey to Ironman. Couldn’t have done it without your help.
Coach Steve is simply awesome! I am just getting back to training and he has been super helpful already! I am so happy that I chose Smart Endurance Solutions to help get me to the finish line of my second Ironman.
I wanted to say thanks!, simply Thanks! and thank you a lot. I followed mostly the 20 weeks plan for Training for my 70.3 and beat 3 out of my 4 goals.
1. finish under 6 hours – done
2. finish my 13.1 under 2h30 mins – done
3. be in aero for the most part of the bike – done
4. swim under 30 mins – not done but very very close!
I liked everything that you put in the program and although sometimes I was tired, life got in the way, or had other commitments, it was by all means v
Steven has been coaching me this year and I’ve had a great season – completing the NS for the first time in 4 years, injury free. My performance has improved and he has delivered a quality personalised training and recovery program that allows me to maintain a healthy work, life AND training balance.Looking forward to working with Steven again next year.
