Steve knows how to get results, he helped me get back on track after taking a bit of time out of Tri. He’s always there with a supportive word or kick up the ass as and when needed. Couldn’t recommend coach Steve more, knows his stuff and is an all-around nice guy!
It has been a very exciting 4 years working with Steve. At the start of wash Eason we set challenging but achievable goals with a plan that is tailored to the athlete, not the other way around and one that is adaptable to life’s general obstacles! Not only is data reviewed in detail, but how the athlete feels is also considered in each block. Not only have I achieved personal goals, I have even podiumed a number of times. Could not recommend coach Steve enough!
I am training for my 1st full Ironman using the 40 week advanced training plan and I love it. The flow, ease of use and durations fit into my work and family life perfectly without sacrificing training. Also helps that Coach Steve is super responsive to emails. Thank you!!
The weekly zoom meetings with Coach Steve & other triathletes, hearing about their races & training has taken some of the stress away, the information & advice is spot on. Thanks, Coach Steve for your support.
I loved the training plan provided!
I really liked the construction of the plan and how I could adapt it to my personal life. The team is great and answers quickly.
Hello! I am currently training on a 16 week Olympic triathlon plan and loving it.
Smart Endurance Solutions Made me an Ironman 2018!!!
Didn’t have to think about a thing! Followed the plan and the rest follows! QED
I’m 11 weeks into my 46 weeks Beginner Ironman plan. This is my first try at training for a triathlon. What I liked even before purchasing this plan is that I could write an email for coach Steve and get answers for all my concerns. At the time I was in ~4h marathon shape, had some past experience in cycling, and almost no experience in swimming, so we decided that a Beginner plan will suit me the best. At first, it felt that running volume is really low and I’m detraining in my strongest triathlon discipline but in few weeks when cycling volume ramped up those thoughts disappeared. Actually, having less running and more cycling keeps me away from running injuries and I’m faster now than I ever was. I’m probably not in marathon shape anymore but there are 35 weeks of the plan left with plenty of 20+km long runs. Another thing that I liked is tests for HR zones for cycling and running. Finally! Finally, I’m training in zones that i feel are right. In the past, I’ve recalculated my zones using different approaches at least 5 times and they always felt off. Now I feel that I’m really training in the zone that workout prescribes. Swimming. I can’t really talk about that because I’ve only swum for the first few weeks of the plan then due to quarantine all pools were closed, I’ve switched to strength and mobility workouts instead. Last thing. Coach Steve quickly answers all my questions, e.g. what to do when the pool closes, what is the best approach to brick workout, and so on. Overall I feel confident that following this plan I will be an Ironman finisher.
I like your training for 50+ people, I feel I am recuperating better, I was doing another training plan but I like this one better. Feeling stronger every day.
Using your plan got me through my first Ironman event in Wales, Tenby on the 15th of September.
Only 1 or two changes were made to the plan because of weather or pool being closed, a good 95% or more of the workouts were completed as expected. No injury, no excessive fatigue – fantastic, thank you!
Steve’s training plans are really well tailored by event, duration, ability and age-group. Following his plan has made a step change to my training. Even though there has been no formal racing of late, I have seen continuous improvements in training ‘test sessions’ and virtual races. It has also been reassuring to have email access to Steve when the questions / doubts / second-guessing can creep in.
Thank you Steve.
I just finished my Half Ironman—Gulf Coast 70.3 and I felt amazing! Thanks for all your help along the way. I got carried away and crushed the bike so my run suffered but I in the end I'm so pleased that I finished HAPPY AND HEALTHY!
