Steve is a great coach and a great guy. I was coached for my first full distance race with him in Barcelona. A real coach that cares for his athletes. When I do another full distance race Steve will be my first port of call.
I am very happy with your plan and I will keep using it and most probably others, too.
I have just purchased your 12-week plan 70.3 base/maintenance plan and am really looking forward to it as the plan itself is very clear and well structured. Will keep you posted how I get on.
Just writing a short post to say thanks Steve for your training plan for my first 70.3 which was Outlaw Bowood. You patiently entertained many of my e-mails in the beginning when I was unsure about beginner or intermediate and helped me go for latter. Glad I did!
So today came in with a 6:12 time which considering on the run little of it is flat I was delighted with.
Many thanks for your plan and support in answering my questions, I really appreciate the time you took to support me.

Following a great training plan from smart endurance solutions, had a few queries about it and were answered extremely quickly and concisely with a friendly manner, highly recommended!!
Steve is very responsive, very quick at setting up plans and always listens to his clients needs. Nothing is too much trouble ! Thanks Steve
I felt your coaching skills combined with your knowledge of when to push and when to accept my excuses (!) was such a help to me. Our partnership was key in getting me across the finish line in the race with a PB too…. I definitely did more brick sessions than in previous years and that stood to me on race day
Very attentive and interested in my progress while being realistic about adjustments needed around life happening – provided good structure and focus then backed it up with accountability
Really appreciate your training plans by the way. See steady progress with them, and have fun, so thanks!
Hi Coach, writing this to thank you for your training plans. Ever since I started using them, I have not struggled in the last 3 races I have done this year!
1st in AG at Goulburn Duathlon over the weekend!
Was feeling a little underdone on training due to illness, but had followed Coach Steve's plan as best I could.
Conditions were freezing and windy on the day, but a great feeling of accomplishment post race.
