I have purchased and been working through your Ironman 70.3 beginner training programme. It has been brilliant so far, I have been really enjoying it.
Loved the plan – it has taught me a lot and put me on track to compete in my first tri race (olympic).
Have loved reading the SMartEnduro Community updates and motivational stories over the past year. Have done a few sprints and Olympics during the season but waited until my A race to post. Firstly, thanks to coach Steve for setting out a progressive and challenging training programme. I won’t lie, I didn’t stick to it meticulously but it was great motivation when other things, covid, family, life, posed distractions!!
What a fantastic experience!!!!
I’m a normal athlete , 42 yr old , married man and two small kids … basically new into triathlon. But It was my dream to complete an IM70.3 , after reading many reviews, decided to purchase a plan with Coach Steven Moody , and what a fantastic experience it has been, the flexible plan and the continuous support made my dream come true … The plan was balanced and accommodating to my schedule with work/family… and I was able to complete my first 70.3 Ironman
I have your full-distance plan (24 weeks) and I love it, a big fan!
Many thanks for your plan and support in answering my questions, I really appreciate the time you took to support me.

Returning to triathlon after a 20 year gap, I found Smart Endurance Solutions & Coach Steve Moody on Training Peaks. Three months on, I can say what a very positive difference it has made.
The precious time and energy I am spending in training is more efficiently used and i've been particularly taken with Coach Steve's "PB Hit Squad" – a hybrid coaching/support group where I'm learning new skills, swapping stories with other triathletes and asking specific questions about my plan.
Signed up for my first IM which was due to take place in August 2021. Although the race itself was canceled, some friends and I decided to do the IM distances ourselves in June. Admittedly I cut the training short by 2 months but with that said I was still more then prepared and breezed through the swim, bike and run. I can't say enough good things about the program and when it comes Coach Steve himself, he is always on hand with speedy email responses and a wealth of knowledge!
The structure is the game changer. I started with a decent level of fitness but absolutely no clue on how to advance. The personal program with excellent feedback from Steve all ultimately made me a sub 3 marathoner. Can't recommend enough and as a bonus, Steve is just a nice guy. Genuinely one of the best coaches in the country now and his accolades speak to that.
I completed Ironman 70.3 Muncie this past weekend. It was a big success (for me) my first completion under my belt.
Steve is an experienced coach. He has a thorough understanding of training peaks and how to interpret the data so if you are using TP then Steve can help you to leverage the information to provide more insights. I used Steve's plan for my 1st half ironman and finished it injury free in the time as trained and planned.
As a beginner to both TrainingPeaks and using a coach, I was thoroughly impressed with how simple and (so far) effective Coach Steve’s plan is. I’m quite hot on hitting the right sessions at the right intensity to be able to be the best athlete I can come race day and Coach Steve’s method has allowed me to be rested for the hard sessions and spent enough after to enable strong benefits through recovery. Steve has also been very helpful with answering any questions/suspicions I may have in using my data, planning for the race, and choosing the right plan. I’m currently about halfway through my race plan, and already itching to get going!
