Just wanted to say thanks for your advanced Oly training program I enjoyed it and used it for my race this weekend (1500 m lake / 28 mi bike / 10 K run). Fun getting back into it, even if a little more effort beating the “young bucks” now that I am 50 years young/old!
[Overall placing 5th of 175/AG placing 1st 50-54]
I just completed my first sprint Aquabike in Skerries, Dublin at the weekend
Thanks to your plan and support, I feel great, I’ve got the fitness bug again, and regularly empty my bank account (for I definitely need…) in pursuit of what is now a firm love of Aquabike training. I can’t believe I’ve trained 6-8 times a week for 20 weeks without injury: I’ve tried nearly everything and always get injured.
Thanks a million for your superb plans, work and support! On to the next one!
Just writing a short post to say thanks Steve for your training plan for my first HALF DISTANCE 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.
I purchased your plan “INTERMEDIATE Olympic 20 week plan, Coach email access, reusable, POWER (Bike) + HR (Run) base 20 Weeks” on Training Peaks. Many thanks to you as it worked very well so far and I was able to get faster in almost each discipline!
Keep up the good work.
Coach Steve’s FULL DISTANCE training plan was very practical and worked well for me.
Coach Steve’s plan looks very simple at first, but after a few weeks of execution, I found out that it worked for me, my muscle endurance continued to increase, I felt happy and accomplished,
Coach Steve does an incredible job of dialed in training to your specific needs. I am pleased with the program which has enabled me to prepare for my first HALF DISTANCE. The knowledge that Coach Steve shared has made this process a great experience along with positive motivation/confidence building. I highly recommend this to anyone considering a seamless training program which provides the daily work out up to race day!!
My training for the Peach Classic Olympic distrance tri went very well. I felt so prepared and fit coming into my race thanks to following your training plan. I have never felt so ready and confident for a race. I ended up winning second in my age group, and as it was a provincial championship race, I got a podium moment, a medal, and a prize bottle of wine. I will definitely try another training plan next year!
I hope you have an amazing summer and thanks again for your great program!
Steve's plan helped me successfully complete my first HALF DISTANCE! The plan was manageable and I felt like I was able to move my workouts around as my scheduled allowed. I will be using the plan again to train for my next HALF DISTANCE. Steve also provided helpful emails throughout the training plan.
I had been trying to beat my 5km Personal Best for a couple of years when I was recommended to contact Coach Steve about a training plan. I signed up for a 12 week plan and 4 weeks in I’ve already broken my PB. I’m excited now to see just how far I can go over the next 8 weeks. I would highly recommended Coach Steve if your serious about smashing your goals.
15 months without racing but I can honestly say that Coach Steve's plans keep me motivated day in day out. Recently we discussed and changed my training regime from IM to Olympic distance training. Yep, due to this bad worldwide situation my IM dream is on hold for the time being. I m honestly more confident as an athlete thanks to Steve's base training and yeah I m so ready and pumped to race!
HALF DISTANCE done! And an age group podium to boot (which got bumped up to 2nd in the official results!!!)
The balance of training that allows me to run that fast (for me) off the bike seems like a mystic art!!
I completed the HALF DISTANCE Base Plan and found it excellent. For me the biggest benefit was having the structured workouts and understanding what I was trying to achieve with each session. I could see myself progressing each week which helped with motivation. I also joined the PB Hit Squad and found this very useful. The weekly Zoom calls have allowed me to improve my triathlon knowledge which will help with the season ahead.
