. Great plan by the way and already loving the ability to swap days around for family/work etc
I was looking for a long-term FULL DISTANCE training plan. Only coach Steve offers such a program (48 weeks, shorter ones are also available). Before purchasing the plan I asked him which plan would be better for me (There are advanced, intermediate, and beginner plans). Steve took the time to understand my fitness level and needs, before recommending a plan (intermediate). He was also very responsive and answered all my questions rapidly and in detail: He not only provides you an answer but also explains why he gave that answer, which is very useful. The plan itself is well thought and the workouts are clearly explained which is important to perform them efficiently.
I highly recommend coach Steve. Knowing that you can count on an expert is highly motivating.
You’re doing a great job motivating people! I like the funny and informal way you explain things in Trainingpeaks and in the PDF-documents.
I’m thrilled to start my FULL DISTANCE journey with you. My training partner fell in love with your plan and will be buying one too
The HALF DISTANCE training plan from Steve was brilliant and was key to completing my first HALF DISTANCE. The balance of set training days alongside rest was perfectly balanced and fitted my family/work life without much stress. Steve was great at answering my e-mailed questions almost immediately and I have already been in touch to discuss my next plan for an FULL DISTANCE Full which shows how good Steve and his plans are! Highly recommend to anyone starting their Triathlon journey!
I have just purchased your 12-week plan HALF DISTANCE 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.
I searched through a number of training programmes on Training Peaks and was delighted I chose Coach Steve and Smart Endurance Solutions.
From a long time absence away from triathlon, I wanted something that would get me up to date without having to think too hard, and that would also adapt to my own development.
So far it has challenged me without being over-faced. The Facebook community and ability to email Coach Steve is a really nice extra for such a good value package.
Made the most of lockdown with your base training plan and emailed advice – coming out the other side stronger and faster (on bike and run anyhow!) – just need to work out my race schedule for next year but I will be in touch for a full plan! Thanks Steve
Just short thoughts and memo at the other side of the incredible experience that was FULL DISTANCE Emilia-Romagna.
All in all, a great day, great race, incredible race course, quite manageable, and in the end my time was even better than I expected.
I want to thank you for the program I used. It got me well prepared and it was never the overwhelming experience I was afraid of in the beginning. So, if nothing else, a big THANK YOU for your part in making the whole experience as great as it was. It was even that great, that I am almost sure to do this again
I’m a few weeks into your 44-week advanced training program and I’m really enjoying all of the training sessions.
Great feedback – good understanding of my needs-should have done this years ago. Would highly recommend
Had to start from scratch in my triathlon career andCS was recommended to me by a friend. He has been awesome from start to finish – "No such thing as a stupid question – unless you ask it too late" to quote the man himself … he is patient, detail-focused and seems to give a shit! I already have completed my first sprint and standard distances and am thinking long next year… all possible due to CS – thank you so much (p.s. I also beat the friend who recommended CS to me – first time ever)
