As a newbie to Triathlon, Steve's training camp was an invaluable experience. His thoughtful guidance and tips throughout the camp gave me the knowledge and confidence I needed for race day.
5:35 in my debut HALF DISTANCE and all thanks to your program.
I loved every minute of it!
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.
Great plan, found it much easier to stick to than some others i’ve tried. Coach Steve explains things very well with excellent support.
I used IM training plan, and blown away!!, first of all, is 100% structure!!, all proper cycles and stages for an inteligent and great training are in the plan. Coach Steve is always one email away, he is always available that is a perfect customer service.
Training plan made me delivered so far my best IM as of now. And I will continue using his plans in order to continue improving as I have great and big goals.
Best training plan, best coach to help, 10000% recomended.
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!
Yesterday I did the 1/2 IM Liuzhou and came second in my age group (65-69) in a great time(for me) of 5.39. I missed a Kona spot by 7 minutes but got the spot of 1/2 Nice world championships in September. I am thrilled!!!
Anyway, you deserve a lot of the credit for a training plan that got me to Nice and Kona isn’t dead yet so THANK YOU.
Earlier this year I finished the IM Texas with help of your training program. I didn’t follow it 100%, but having a training plan was a great way of keeping track. I got a PR with 20 minutes faster compared to last year (11:40).
Coach Steve has been coaching me this year, he has delivered a quality personalised training and recovery program that allows me to maintain a healthy work, life AND training balance. Steven is by far the most attentive coach I know. Feedback on sessions can be almost instant, there are times when there are comments coming in via TrainingPeaks or WhatsApp before I have realised a session has been uploaded. Most of all Steven’s enthusiasm and love for the sport comes through to his athletes, this makes all of the hardship fun.
Was delighted with the training plan so wanted to drop you a reply when your email came out! I took up triathlon after 8 years out of it so this really was couch to HALF DISTANCE!!
My A race for the year the HALF DISTANCE in Youghal and for the most part was very happy with how it went. Completed it in 5 hours 25 mins which was inside my target time of 5:30 !!!
Thanks again for all the support through your plan over the last 30 weeks or so!
This is my 4th year using SMart Endurance ,
The attention to detail in feedback from all sessions is exceptional ,
Always at the end of a phone when advice or direction is needed,
I found Coach Steve’s training programme very useful and highly effective to reach and go further than what my goals were. The programme is easy to follow and having the the ability to converse with Steve on matters to do with training is a huge benefit. Can highly recommend Steve and his expertise!
