Just a quick note to say thank you very much for your training plan and advices.
I completed IM Barcelona on 3 October. I’m sure you’ve heard that the swim was cut short which was a pity. However, it was the toughest swim I have ever done. The bike proved harder than expected because of a head wind. I had been hoping for a 6 hour bike but did it in 6.30. The run went as well as I could have expected as I knocked about 20 minutes or so off my previous time.
The combination of this training program and access to coach Steve is invaluable.
The first time I trained for an FULL DISTANCE HALF DISTANCE I just found a workout on the internet. It worked, but that’s it.
Being able to bounce questions off of Steve throughout the training has been a major confidence boost for me. I feel like I’m actually doing things the right way now! And it’s more fun to have a friend encouraging you along the way!!
Steve is a legend!! Received my personalised training plan for my 1st HALF DISTANCE and it looks class, he’s blended existing sessions with other coaches. Each session gives pointers and tips for best performance. Feeling very motivated as I start out on my triathlon journey!!
Highly recommend Smart Endurance Solutions!!
PR’d. Great program! Thanks!
I am entering the second week of the beginner 12 week Olympic distance triathlon plan. Really enjoying it so far.
I started in September with a training program of 14 weeks with 5 sessions per week. I followed everything as faithfully as possible and learned a lot from it. I already knew that I enjoyed variety, but there were some new training forms in there for me. I also found out that training at a very low heart rate really works.
I crossed the finish line in 2:07:26. Definitely a successful weekend.
Coach Steve’s plan helped me to have a great Oly distance race. While it wasn’t my first tri, my event marked my return to triathlon after a period of time away. I found his plan to be well crafted, easy to integrate into a training routine, and it proved, for me, to be nearly the perfect plan by meeting my overall triathlon and lifestyle needs. I was so impressed with his plan and assistance, in fact, that I retained his services to help me prep for an upcoming HALF DISTANCE! Thanks CS!!
Great training plan & amazing guidance from steve. Happy customer!
I’m entering week 20 of your ADVANCED FULL DISTANCE 32 week (50yrs+, HR-based) program. Really enjoying the plan so far, making great progress, and—knock on wood—remain injury-free.
Delighted with the plan from Steve. Had a few issues I needed to run past him and the feedback was very quick and clear. Would recommend him to anyone.
Coach Steve, Thank you for the awesome Advanced FULL DISTANCE Training Plan. I am 10 plus weeks into the training and I feel very strong. The plan does a great job getting the most out of me while keeping me healthy and not overtraining. You have been very responsive via email and I appreciate that. I am extremely excited for the 2020 season.
Steven has been coaching me this year and I’ve had a great season – completing the NS for the first time in 4 years, injury free. My performance has improved and he has delivered a quality personalised training and recovery program that allows me to maintain a healthy work, life AND training balance.Looking forward to working with Steven again next year.
