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.
Coach Steve & I have been working together for a number of years, Steve has been invaluable in my ability to train & complete races. Having a young family, busy job & limited free time, his structured yet flexible approach allows me to still get training in. Accompanying S&C programs really help you training smart as well as hard. The best thing working with Steve is having a rational voice to keep you honest. He will have that difficult conversations with you, this helps me set realistic goals
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!!
Great start to my season as nailed a 6 min PB on the first of my planned duathlons – thank you CS – loving the structure and the helpful videos!
I worked with Steve in preparation for my first FULL DISTANCE in Cork in 2019. Steve left no stone unturned in getting me to the start line ready for action. He ran a course reccce weekend which was invaluable and shared some super raceway advice. The training plan and coaching was excellent as was the feedback from Steve who was always available. I would highly recommend Steve for anyone looking to achieve their goals!
Thanks for a great plan I finished in 2:23h 38 – 59 – 41 min. The heat was a bit hard at the end of the run and have to improve my swimming but learned already a lot from your plan
The IM plan that I had previously was great – got me through IMNZ in March, taking over an hour off my previous time. This year I went for the intermediate plan rather than a beginner to use the additional swimming and riding to make up for the run. All in all, really happy with the outcome.
Thank you for all your Support. I’m training for FULL DISTANCE #7. First time that I use a online Coach. Now I wish I had started or found Steve = smartendurancesolution earlier. He is really smart, helpful and structured.
I did Dublin City triathlon yesterday, standard distance, first one since 2015….I was happy with how it went. 1st in age group, even though there was only 3 of us😀
I liked the training plan and I loved all the heart rate training and could definitely see improvements.
Thanks for tips on the journey Steve. I couldn’t stick to planned training with life/work, but improvised a little . Oh and got 6th in over 60 age category
I have been working with Steve and his plans now for a few years on a couple of different events. If you stick to the plans, the results will follow. The man knows his stuff. He also has a vast amount of experience and knowledge. He will answer any queries you might have and also has a solution to most problems (sport related🙂). Allways money well spent. I look forward to future plans with Steve and hopefully with better days ahead for everyone.

A big thank you Steve for all your coaching over the past few years and sorting me out with one of your plans.
I've finally got to a stage of being IM race ready & I couldn't have done it without your support and guidance
So thanks again
