I’ve been working with Coach Steven as my coach since late 2015. He’s has a great flexibility to his approach which really suits any Athlete’s personal circumstances. Since he has been my coach I have achieved a number of personal bests at various distances, also I’ve learn’t a lot about the sport outside of the day to day training, understanding what to eat prior to a race, also how to prepare myself physically & mentally on race day.
TrainingPeaks is ideal for our Coach / Athlete relationship having a young family & busy job it allows us to plan ahead but move sessions easily if required. The rich data the platform provides also allows us to agree small changes to ensure we maximize the benefits of every session. The e-mail alerts when Steve comments or changes a session really helps me plan my day according to what I need to achieve as an athlete, employee & Father
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.
I reached out to several coaches in July 2021 and Steve responded with not only the plan he would recommended, but also the encouragement I, a total noob needed to follow through! I went by his program and not only did I finish my first triathlon, but came in 3rd in my age group! I just signed up for an IRONMAN 70.3 and will definitely be going with Couch Steve for my training plan!
Awesome service, with creation of a plan for the Swedish weather, a pile of encouragement and humour to calm my first IM nerves. Kalmar 2019 here I come. Thank coach Steve
I’m really enjoying your plan, exactly what I needed. From my previous 70.3s, I feel that a lack of volume in training was my downfall. I was just making it up as I went along so this is a good change.”
Very attentive and interested in my progress while being realistic about adjustments needed around life happening – provided good structure and focus then backed it up with accountability
Had to start from scratch in my triathlon career andCS was recommended to me by a friend. He has been awesome from start to finish – "No such thing as a stupid question – unless you ask it too late" to quote the man himself … he is patient, detail-focused and seems to give a shit! I already have completed my first sprint and standard distances and am thinking long next year… all possible due to CS – thank you so much (p.s. I also beat the friend who recommended CS to me – first time ever)
Good evening! I am coming to the end of my Olympic distance tri plan of yours I found on training peaks and wanted to share that I have really enjoyed the training process! Your workouts were easy to follow and I feel they have led me to being very prepared for my event (2.5 weeks out). Having followed a variety of plans in the past, I found yours to be particularly helpful and well-crafted!
The plan is very useful and practical ,its my first time doing a training plan with training peak , and its very good.
Thank you! Loving the plan!!! [Inter 70.3 24 week plan]
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
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.
