I used one of Steve's 2 month marathon training plans following IM Cork 70.3. The plan also included bike and swim. At no point did I feel like I was overtraining or being pushed over my limit. Steve was quick to respond to any questions I had. Highly recommended.
Fantastic wknd despite dreadful forecast.Steve & Niall juggled things around to avoid the worst of the weather.Great to get out and do the bike course…Nice pace catered to all abilities.Unfortuately the weather didn't allow for much of a swim.. however it was great to get in the water regardless and get some landmarks and sighting tips.Great slide presentation and question answer by Steve. Overall a very enjoyable camp and well worth it for all the tips and insight from very experienced guys.
Great coach Steve!! I’m following your plan for the Ironman and I’m improving very well!! Very fast in email reply with his advice and assistance!! Highly recommended
I am training for my 1st full Ironman using the 40 week advanced training plan and I love it. The flow, ease of use and durations fit into my work and family life perfectly without sacrificing training. Also helps that Coach Steve is super responsive to emails. Thank you!!
I completed my first Ironman in Klagenfurt, Austria, using the 6-month training plan. Working 50 hours a week, the plan is well-designed and with enough flexibility to be able to balance training with a demanding work schedule.
Coach Steve was always very responsive to questions and provided constructive advice based on my personal performance needs, and the metrics dashboard provided helpful insights into progress. I look forward to using Smart Endurance Solutions for future races!
Thank you so much, Coach Steve, for your support. Great tips on pre and race day which were very helpful.
After a couple weeks break, I'll be back at it and have some goals to reach. Would appreciate some advice on best training program to be ready for Santa Cruz and crush that course
Breast /lung Cancer from 2018 to 2020 chemo/radation 5 surgeries, COVID 3weeks before cork,3 kids working full time ,on the bucket list half ironman, everyone thought I was nuts, Steve didn't he believed in me and made me believe in myself, while it didn't work out on the day and I missed cut off for bike , I got thick and did my own 21 k ,just didn't cross that line , Steve has given me my confidence back, I can't recommend him enough, cork 70.3 2023, 💪💪💪💪
I started using the beginner Ironman program from Steve and found it to be extremely helpful and saw my fitness improve dramatically since then I have moved onto the advanced Ironman program from Steve and have managed PB’s in all three disciplines. Steve has always be approachable via email with any questions and responds quickly. I now have 4 programs by Steve across Ironman and 70.3 distances. Thanks a lot Steve for helping me become better and more importantly faster!
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!
Hi Steve, just a note to say thanks for all your assistance over the past year. I feel that I have improved since we started working together and am looking forward to working with next year in achieving my goals.
I have been working with Steve and his plans now for a few years on a couple of different events. If you stick to the plans, the results will follow. The man knows his stuff. He also has a vast amount of experience and knowledge. He will answer any queries you might have and also has a solution to most problems (sport related🙂). Allways money well spent. I look forward to future plans with Steve and hopefully with better days ahead for everyone.
