As a first time triathlete, I can definitely recommend the training plans of Steve. Over the last 6 months I’ve tried to do everything myself, but couldn’t see the wood for the trees. Which zone calculator to use? Which sessions actually work? How make sure not to undertrain? How not to overtrain? Steve’s training plans are straightforward and take all that guesswork out of it. Big bonus: the extremely fast responses to emails (24/7 it seems, do you even sleep?!) really help with all the little details that you usually just gloss over and provide even more peace of mind during training. All in all highly recommended!
Thank you! Loving the plan!!! [Inter 70.3 24 week plan]
Followed the 70.3 training programme from Coach Steve on training peaks prior to competing in Tri X, advertised as the world’s toughest half iron. This was my first triathlon and I couldn’t of done it without the excellent training advice. Going into the race the fittest I have been in a very long time, taking 6th in my age group and 21st overall. Thanks Coach Steve, on to the next one!
Coach Steve had the job of mentoring & preparing me for the IM Cork and a half-distance event in Galway.
Without his guidance/tips and tricks, I would not have got on as well as I did.
His humor/patience / experience were all vital and helped get me and also many others through the day”
When I asked Steve if I could use his logo for my blog he replied yes asked that I share my blog site with him. He had a look at some of my posts and replied his coach senses were tingling. After some coach and athlete banter, we both agreed that based on my goals and this is the first IRONMAN I should move to the intermediate plan.
I have to say it is the best money I have spent!
I loved the training plan provided!
I really liked the construction of the plan and how I could adapt it to my personal life. The team is great and answers quickly.
The weekly zoom meetings with Coach Steve & other triathletes, hearing about their races & training has taken some of the stress away, the information & advice is spot on. Thanks, Coach Steve for your support.
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 am about 1/2 way through my 44 week Ironman triathlon training program and I have been really enjoying it. I am new to triathlon and a number of year past my life as a football player so the program has provided both good structure and easy to follow workouts that have helped me already make a lot of great strides. I have had a few questions along the way and Coach Moody has always been quick to respond and given me personally tailored responses, to which I am thankful for. Unfortunately, with COVID my races have been postponed/cancelled, but I have no doubt that the plan will get me there once races are back on as the plan has already helped increased my speed and endurance across the board.
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!!
Feel stronger across all the disciplines after your Inter Base plan – thank you! Great to be entering a race season with some confidence even not being able to toe the line for a while!
Steven set me up with my first 70.3 training plan back in 2015 and I haven’t looked back since. He designed a structured, balanced and personalized plan that enabled me achieve all my goals and far more!
Steven always gave great feedback for my sessions while remaining lighthearted and making sure i stayed grounded!
I would highly recommend his training plans to anyone looking to make gains from whatever level they’re at.
