Hi Coach Steve, first I am super happy with your training plan. It really helped me to be prepared for an Ironman.
Steven has provided me with a wonderful 70.3 plan, and has incorporated my request to also include preparation for a marathon earlier on next year. I look forward to working with Steven over the coming months, and am really impressed with his guidance so far. Thanks Steven!
Last year I set a goal to race in Ironman Western Australia. Considering at that stage I was 122kg and hadn’t raced in 9 years, it was a big ask.
I needed a plan.
Through Training Peaks, I discovered a 48 week Ironman plan for beginners offered by Coach Steve. The plan was reasonably priced for the duration and detail and offered support via email.
Had i of known how much support, the timeliness of the support and the quality of the support before I signed up, I’d had thought I was getting the too good to be true plan.
Steve is FABULOUS!
He has been a wonderful support over the last 9 months. He has been patient with my questions, all 3000 of them. His advice has been wonderful and his encouragement has been appreciated.
So brilliant has Steve been over my journey to date, when my Ironman was cancelled and I deferred to Ironman Cairns in June, Steve was the first I emailed to lock in a new 70.3 plan to take me to Geelong 70.3 in February and on to my first Ironman in 2021.
Today I’m fitter than I’ve ever been and thanks to the super easy to follow plan that builds progressively and which is achievable each week, I am also 27kgs lighter.
Thanks Steve for being there on my journey to Ironman. Couldn’t have done it without your help.
This was my 1st time on one of these camps. Overall the camp was excellent, from the comms prior to the camp, whatsapp group messages leading up to and during the weekend, topics covered, planning sessions (including due to weather changes) and the great atmosphere within the group during the camp.
Both coaches were very knowledgeable, approachable and chilled.
I would recommend one of Coach Steve's camps to anyone looking to gain confidence, insight or a kick in the a** prior to their race.
Was delighted to see what improvements your 24 week Inter Oly plan had earned me – was touch and go for a while to see if the race would go ahead – but man, when it did … I was not disappointed = 2 min PB on the swim, 14 PB on the bike and 5 mins on my run … felt strong the entire way (ok maybe not in the last 2km of the run … LOL)
Thank you so much for this breakthrough result … more to come next race season methinks! I will be in touch Coach Steve
Great plan! I had a 12 min PR on exact same course from 2 yrs ago. Even in some hot conditions I met all my goals and felt confident and strong the entire race. I felt the plan was very efficient and effective for someone wanting to be competitive in AG. I already purchased the middle distance plan with big goals for that one as well. Thankful!!!
First Olympic distance race is in the books and it was a success! …. Thank you Coach Steve for your plans and support, it made a huge difference and in many ways! Off to the next Olympic race and then start getting prepared for Ironman next year — with Coach Steve of course!
Finished with a 6:09 and change. I was really happy with it overall.
Appreciate all your help along the way!
Hi Steven! I have done yours 36week beginner ironman plan and reached some good results that I am happy about. 2 months ago i finished 70.3 in 5h8min and two days ago my first Ironman Copenhagen in 11h19min. It has been hard at the beginning to stick to the plan, but then i worked very well and I had better understanding what and why I am doing that
I just wanted to reach out and let you know that your plan has been essential to some athletic gains that I never knew possible. The plan helps me organize and thus find time for the new baby, the wife, the blog, the book, and new business, not to mention recovery. My swim has become a new machine since learning how to measure my CSS and apply techniques from the drills. I am much stronger and less fatigued in my stroke- all thanks to drills and the arduous backstroke you implement. I have come to love the training so much I have been referring everyone I know who doesn’t already have a coach to your site. I thank you, from the bottom of my heart. You are helping me reach a dream and by doing this I am able to help others more!
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!
Thanks again for your responses, its refreshing to speak to a coach who seems to care about what the athlete is purchasing
