Another HALF DISTANCE race done and would not have been able to finish without the support and guidance of Coach Steve (CS).
I had an injury at the beginning of the year and wasn’t able to run for two months. CS help to tailor my plan to allow for the reduction in running which allowed me to focus on my bike and swim. Before the race I felt in the best running condition of the last 18 months.
Cairns of course made it difficult but I learnt so much.
CS will be there to help me to FULL DISTANCE 2022.
I’ve trained and raced alongside Coach Steve for the past two years and he always brings a lighthearted sense of humour to sessions while at the same time being clearly dedicated to improving his own and others performance. His dedication to the sport of triathlon is second to none and since signing up to SMart Endurance Steve has been both helpful and professional and has provided me with a HALF DISTANCE training plan that suits my needs and experience. Looking forward to the next 30 weeks training.
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!!
I just finished my first HALF DISTANCE after following Coach Steve's HALF DISTANCE plan. While I started off pretty nervous about the whole idea the plan helped me build confidence over time. Even when I got hit with Covid near the end of my build phase Coach Steve helped me re-organize my plan and push through to the end. I'm not the fastest athlete out there but Coach Steve's plan gave me the confidence to push myself to run hard and strong right through the end. Thanks Coach!
I joined the program with some sort of hesitation from deviating from my current functional program I follow.
But since joining the SES program my fitness has increased like never before! My body has reacted really well and I can’t wait to see the results on race day.
Steve has been great and made the program super clear and accessible through the online platform.
5 stars from me
Earlier this year I finished the IM Texas with help of your training program. I didn’t follow it 100%, but having a training plan was a great way of keeping track. I got a PR with 20 minutes faster compared to last year (11:40).
From the first session with your marathon plan, I was absolutely hooked! The way your programming synced to my watch and the explanations of each session really engaged me in my training.
Initially, my goal was simply to finish the marathon. But I had a secret goal towards the end of running it in under 4 hours… I finished my marathon yesterday in 3:57 and I could not be happier. I did it!!!!
Thank you for the training program and I enjoyed being part of the Facebook group.
Training plans as good if not better than any others on the market!
Thank you for helping me not only refind my training Mojo during all the COVID cancellations but also emerge from it a stronger biker than before…. your base sessions kept me motivated and challenged! Now onto IM Bolton in 2022!

Coach Steve is not for everyone! He’s not for you if you you need a pep talk every 5 mins!
He IS for you if you want detailed feedback, advice based on data, the facts! He is highly motivated and efficient, but he is also a sound listening board and a great mentor. What I found great is that he’s not afraid to stop the plan tailor the changes specifically for you!
Trust in the plan and the performance will follow! Everyone needs a ‘Coach Steve’!
Coach Steve is phenomenal in providing efficient, detailed, and flexible training plans tailored to your goals. He is very responsive via email and is willing to help with any issue that you bring to his attention. I highly recommend!”
Following the training plan worked like a charm, no surprises on race day
