Delighted with the plan from Steve. Had a few issues I needed to run past him and the feedback was very quick and clear. Would recommend him to anyone.
May weekend in Youghal. Great weekend, knowledgeable coaches. Good group splits. Good craic
I am following the Advanced Ironman Program for my next race, and I am extremely happy with the results. The detailed training plan has helped me to not only improve my fitness, but also my confidence. Steve's timely answers to my few questions have been always very clear to understand. His advice has been key for me to develop my skills and enhance my knowledge. I feel fully prepared for my next Ironman and I would recommend this program to any advanced athlete.
I really enjoyed your beginner 36 week full IM plan for my prep for IM Florida this past weekend.
I can’t say enough about Coach Steve and his training plans!
I’m only 5 weeks in to my 32 week beginner Ironman training plan and
have already seen huge improvements in my fitness…especially my
running! At the start, 4 km seemed like a hurdle but now I’m easily
running 7-12 km 3+ times a week. It took me months to reach those kind
of distances when I was training for a half several years back.
On top of the great plans, Coach Steve has been incredibly accessible
and has helped to move around my workouts to work with my crazy
schedule and my fitness level…it’s been super helpful knowing that
there’s someone there to help and build a bit flexibility into the
program, rather than just skipping workouts all together.
I’m really just getting started and already have a ton of confidence
in my ability to make it across the finish line. I would highly
recommend SMart Endurance Solutions and Coach Steve
I presented Coach Steven with a unique challenge of being time deficient and only had limited opportunities to train each week. And those times changed often. He worked to constantly adapt to my timings while also getting the most out of the time available. I found this adaptability and ability to these challenges a commendable skill. Coach Steven also had an excellent ability to keep me focused on either the week ahead or on the Ironman process, as required.
As someone who needs structure to my training I found working with Steve invaluable. Constant feedback helped keep me focused and when I was unfortunate to pick up an injury we worked together to ensure training was back on track.
The combination of this training program and access to coach Steve is invaluable.
The first time I trained for an Ironman 70.3 I just found a workout on the internet. It worked, but that’s it.
Being able to bounce questions off of Steve throughout the training has been a major confidence boost for me. I feel like I’m actually doing things the right way now! And it’s more fun to have a friend encouraging you along the way!!
15 months without racing but I can honestly say that Coach Steve's plans keep me motivated day in day out. Recently we discussed and changed my training regime from IM to Olympic distance training. Yep, due to this bad worldwide situation my IM dream is on hold for the time being. I m honestly more confident as an athlete thanks to Steve's base training and yeah I m so ready and pumped to race!
I am fortunate to call Steve my coach for the past four years. He invests 100% in the process and is extremely dedicated to all of his athletes. What sets Steve apart is the value he brings to the process, with regular insights, tips and recommendations tailored to meet your training needs and race goals. Steve's tailored training plan ensured I completed my first marathon in 2:53 and maiden Ironman in 10:32. In addition, my times have improved each year, not bad for a man in his early 40's.
Steve organised a fantastic weekend, steve along with Mark covered the swim, bike and run courses, advice on transitions, nutrition, fuelling on the go. Plus advice on training on lead up to the event. Couldn't ask for more for a triathlete to newbie Ironman competitor. Have the confidence compete on race day, bring it on!
Was looking for a plan that would keep me on track and get me back into triathlon training after a few years off. Steve got me back into the swing of things. Super to have someone in your corner to push you to where you need to me.
Thanks Stephen 💪
