I used the beginner Olympic training plan for my first ever triathlon.Coach Steve's guides, YouTube videos, and carefully mapped out training plan, which flexed with my own HR/training zones through the Training Peaks app, made it clear what my goals around every event should be. I felt his training plan was foundational to my success – I exceeded my goal time and had a blast doing it. I will come back to him for any future training plans!
I worked with Steve to train for my first full-distance FULL DISTANCE. I got tailored specific feedback on every session, which helped me ramp up my training volume, avoid injury and build fitness. I went into the race feeling confident about my plan, all three disciplines and the race itself. Steve’s coaching took the guesswork and stress of out competing in an FULL DISTANCE, and I plan to work with him again. Highly recommended!
Excellent person and professional coach, always available to the needs of athletes, at any time of the day. Well structured and easy to follow workout.
This isn't just a stock plan. I've entered my first HALF DISTANCE and wanted some structure to my training, with the benefit of some questions if needed. This plan has been spot on, the workload, and the descriptions are easy to follow and build up gradually. Steve has been extremely helpful from day 1 in providing advice and tailoring the programme (i.e. Covid & no pools!). If you have entered any form of triathlon I cant recommended enough how valuable these plans are. Thanks Steve!
Just want to give a big thanks to Steve. Completed the Dublin marathon at the weekend with a 4 minute pb that I’ve been trying to beat for the last 4 years. Followed his 4 month marathon focused triathlon plan. Trust the plan and the results will come.
The plan is very useful and practical ,its my first time doing a training plan with training peak , and its very good.
After a few false starts with race postponements and cancellations due to Covid I really felt the benefit of sticking to Coach Steve’s HALF DISTANCE plan as I felt strong and well prepared going into the race. It is a very easy to navigate, varied plan so I didn’t get bored. I could see the progress as I was moving through the base and build phases which also helped with injury prevention. I would highly recommend this and other plans as Steve was available to answer any queries.
I used a combination Coach Steve's Beginner 22 week and 46-week plan in my attempt at the first full distance triathlon. I followed the plan 90% of the time and made sure those long ones on the weekend were completed. I took the recovery weeks in the plan seriously. Even if i felt great, i avoided the temptation to go out for a short run or bike. On race day, I am happy to report, i completed the race with a lot of energy to spare. Thank you Coach Steve!
Long distance debut yesterday….12hrs 56mins wow man I still can't believe it! Hats off to everyone doing it on regular basis…one hell of a distance! Thank you Coach Steve
I presented Coach Steven with a unique challenge of being time deficient and only had limited opportunities to train each week. And those times changed often. He worked to constantly adapt to my timings while also getting the most out of the time available. I found this adaptability and ability to these challenges a commendable skill. Coach Steven also had an excellent ability to keep me focused on either the week ahead or on the FULL DISTANCE process, as required.
Sorry for delay in posting but just wanted to say a few weeks back I smashed my PB with your intermediate marathon plan – found the race pace sessions had me so dialled in for execution on the day – so will be looking for a new plan for Boston! Thanks Coach Steve
Was Coached by Steve in 2019-2020 for FULL DISTANCE Cork. I started off with relatively little triathlon experience. From the get go I knew Steve was an excellent coach, his daily feedback and training progression over the months were unmatched. I went from feeling like an full-distance was an impossible task to aiming for times which I could only dream of before starting with Steve. One of the Best things about been coached by Steve, was his flexibility, which helped with my line of work. Highly recommend
