Hey Coach, just want to say a massive thank you for the training plan and guidance over the last couple of months, absolutely world class! Yesterdays half marathon was another PB and I actually went faster than my recent 10 mile PB. At 42, I thought my days of breaking records were well and truly over. Thank you, sir
I searched through a number of training programmes on Training Peaks and was delighted I chose Coach Steve and Smart Endurance Solutions.
From a long time absence away from triathlon, I wanted something that would get me up to date without having to think too hard, and that would also adapt to my own development.
So far it has challenged me without being over-faced. The Facebook community and ability to email Coach Steve is a really nice extra for such a good value package.
I just PR’d FULL DISTANCE Florida, thanks to your plan. Whats the best way to show some love to y’all?!
Bring on the bling!! Huge thanks to Steve and Smartendurancesolutions – your plans and insight have not only kept me injury free this winter but built an aerobic base which has seen me set 3 5k pb (Winning our club handicap competition) and also complete a marathon without feeling like death at the end!! Next up – FULL DISTANCE Italy!!
Currently, training using coach Steve’s beginner plan, I am founding his plan great and in line with my expectations and my time availability, also coach Steve was super helpful and responsive when answering queries. Highly recommended and if I am going to survive my first FULL DISTANCE HALF DISTANCE will be down to his training plans.
I loved your plan [BEGINNER Olympic 14 week plan, Coach email access, reusable, HR based] and completed my Olympic tri 21 minutes under goal.
Couldn't be happier with my FULL DISTANCE training plan. Very easy to follow from a beginner's point of view
Great thanks to Steve for immersing myself in successfully-finished triathletes.
For example in the Russian market is dominated by plans from Nonames. Prices bite, and the plans are created according to standard selling templates, without confirmation of the coaches ‘ expertise. There are a lot of such offers on training peaks. On the contrary, Steve’s plans show a huge experience as a coach and athlete. The plans themselves are simple, transparent, and perfectly structured. Before choosing, I wrote to the coach, he warned me about the difficulties, explained the requirements for me as an athlete. He checked my plans for adequacy and then gave me all the necessary recommendations. This only confirmed my desire to follow his plan.
When I got sick during training, the coach gave instructions on how to adjust the training to compensate for the loss of form.
For the little correspondence that we had during the training, Steve has shown himself to be a very nice person, and training athletes for him is more than just earnings. He plans to invest in themselves and their knowledge.“
I was lucky enough to be selected to trial the PB Hit squad with Coach Steve. Initially, I was blown away by the quality/energy of the Zoom calls and have learned a lot in a short time! Based on the direction of CS – I have also switched plans to a much better fit for me and have my HR zones dialed in! Already put in the request for Coach to sign me up post-trial – I need this to get through my first FULL DISTANCE!
Thanks Steven @ SMart Endurance Solutions, this is a great plan well structured and easy to follow. I followed this plan missing the odd session here and there, but with the aid of proper nutrition I got new sprint PB and to make it even better i got a 5km run PB aswell in the same race.
I've been boosting to my friends about this. The Olympic will be my next adventure for a new PB.
Awesome beginner FULL DISTANCE plan from Steve with great email support where needed. Helped take me to my first FULL DISTANCE in 12.44. I found the plan helped me balance training with family…aswell as possible with this kind of thing anyway! Onto the next one, cheers steve
I purchased your plan [Adv 48 week FULL DISTANCE] on Monday and wanted to let you know how pleased I am so far with the thought and detail that has gone into this plan
