I can’t say enough about Coach Steve and his training plans!
I’m only 5 weeks in to my 32 week beginner FULL DISTANCE 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
Had an epic weekend completing my 1st ever HALF DISTANCE and smashing my goal of 6 hours with a 5:43 finish
The plan worked a treat – thank you so much for it and answering all my questions!
I have completed 2 half distances and on full IM & would highly recommend this plan. It's logical, easy to follow, and really gets you to enjoy the process of getting to the start line with the confidence that you are in the great shape to complete the event. All individual advice from Coach Steve was excellent, pragmatic, and delivered with reference to my individual targets & ability. And of course with the right balance of fun! I exceeded my goals on all the legs using this plan!
Just want to say I’m loving the plan and bar this week its really trying in with my work/life balance which is really what I needed
I just completed my first sprint Aquabike in Skerries, Dublin at the weekend
Thanks to your plan and support, I feel great, I’ve got the fitness bug again, and regularly empty my bank account (for I definitely need…) in pursuit of what is now a firm love of Aquabike training. I can’t believe I’ve trained 6-8 times a week for 20 weeks without injury: I’ve tried nearly everything and always get injured.
Thanks a million for your superb plans, work and support! On to the next one!
Thanks for the FULL DISTANCE training plan Coach Steve.
Just finished FULL DISTANCE Austria with a new personal best. Felt really good during the race and only the hot temperatures of ~35 degrees Celsius stoped me from getting an even better finishing time. The plan was great, with lots of long rides and runs that proved their worth during the race. Very important: i don't have any next day pain after the race (I can even do squats) so the recovery went so well. Highly recommend your plan to anyone. Thanks
Good evening! I am coming to the end of my Olympic distance tri plan of yours I found on training peaks and wanted to share that I have really enjoyed the training process! Your workouts were easy to follow and I feel they have led me to being very prepared for my event (2.5 weeks out). Having followed a variety of plans in the past, I found yours to be particularly helpful and well-crafted!
After completing my HALF DISTANCE in Barcelona at 5:53, I joined the PB Hit squad for improved training. Coach Steve and Coach Mark’s meticulous sessions and calls transformed my performance. With their guidance, I’ve achieved numerous PB’s since then. The PB Hit squad is the ultimate training experience for progress. I am sure that by joining the PB hit squad it has transformed my training.
Very happy with the program so far and will definitely benefit from the structured swim sessions
A big thank you Steve for all your coaching over the past few years and sorting me out with one of your plans.
I've finally got to a stage of being IM race ready & I couldn't have done it without your support and guidance
So thanks again
Steve had been my Coach for the last 3 years in that time he has consistently got me to the start line for both Full IMs and HALF DISTANCE races in the best shape possible,his ability to enable this is perfect, he knows when to push me as well as back off when needed.Steve has been instrumental in improving my swimming and cycling,His daily feedback after every session is 1 of the reasons I choose to retain Steve as my coach.Thanks Steve.
A wonderful training plan that fits in with my busy work lifestyle. The sessions are well prepared and well thought of with many little bits of advice along the way. The guidance will get you through to race day leaving you with much confidence, meaning you only need to remember to bring your kit! The author is very approachable and helped me pick out the right plan for me and went out of his way in doing so. I am very appreciative of that and would certainly recommend Steve to everyone. Thank!
