I love Steve’s triathlon training plan. It is well structured plan, offering instruction and tips in the swim, bike and run. However, I found that the best part is the support during the plan that I received by Steve. Always ready to answer any questions…
I was looking for a long-term Ironman 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.
I am following a 40 week advanced Ironman plan. I found out about Coach Steve from TrainingPeaks and was amazed by the raving reviews. Half way into the plan CS has clearly over delivered. The plan is well thought through, but the extra services provided is what sets him apart. Unbelievably quick response times on e-mails, with tailored and motivational answers. My highest recommendations!
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!
Since day one taking up triathlon in 2008 Stephen has been a massive reason why I’ve stuck with triathlon and enjoyed it to the extent that I have. He couldn’t do more to encourage and help those around him and is incredibly generous with both his time and knowledge. I’ve benefitted greatly from his technical knowledge and expertise, but it’s his absolute love of the sport and the passion that he brings to coaching that in my mind allows him to stand out as a coach. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
I completed the ironman last Sunday, August 13. My time was 14:18.16.
Thank you for helping me accomplish this goal of mine. Also, through training for this, I learned how much I love cycling and I hope to participate in some cycling races in the near future.
P.S. I really enjoy your youtube videos
PR’d. Great program! Thanks!
Loving the plan, started the 32 week beginner 70.3 plan in early Jan with A race coinciding with Cork in August. Been following it to the letter and while I’d be a strong swimmer and cyclist, I’m seeing massive gains in my run having gone from a 1:45 half marathon to running an 18km training run comfortably in z2 at 4:50 average (including 2km warm up and cool down), at the tail end of a 3 week base block! If you’d told me that 6 months ago I’d have laughed at you
I owe you a big deal of gratitude. Dont know how you do it, but the way you planned your program made me, I feel, peak at the perfect time. Likewise, I am pleasantly surprised that your plan catered for hiccups that life throws at us.
May weekend in Youghal. Great weekend, knowledgeable coaches. Good group splits. Good craic
Thank you very much for your plan. My experience was incredible, and I believe there is room for improvement in the upcoming half triathlons next year. Let’s keep in touch.
I couldn't recommend Smart Endurance Solutions more highly. I am currently undertaking their over 50's HR based intermediate ironman training plan after having completed their base building/maintenance plan earlier in the year. I have found both plans to be enjoyable , rewarding and have seen fantastic results. Progress has been steady and each stage has fitted my age and fitness profile perfectly. I have found communication and advice extremely helpful.
