I really liked your trainig plan for my HALF DISTANCE this year. I have the intermediate 30 week plan. The transformation I have done through over the last several months is astounding!
Great help, and very quick responses to specific problems and issues. Really good service, that I would highly recommend!
Since we teamed up your coaching and advice has made a major difference & improvement to my training. Your analysis has highlighted instances where I was overtraining, brought a focus and rationale to training in the correct HR zones which has developed my endurance. Your coaching has also introduced proper periodization to my training. Crucially having you coaching me has taken away the usual second guessing that goes with setting one’s own training schedule. On the journey I have found that you listened well to my particular circumstances and been flexible and adaptive to suit my busy worklife. TrainingPeaks played a key role here also allowing me to lay out my work commitments in advance and you could tailor the training load and schedule to fit.
So thank you very much for the 2016 season and I look forward to working together again in 2017
I started using the beginner FULL DISTANCE program from Steve and found it to be extremely helpful and saw my fitness improve dramatically since then I have moved onto the advanced FULL DISTANCE program from Steve and have managed PB’s in all three disciplines. Steve has always be approachable via email with any questions and responds quickly. I now have 4 programs by Steve across FULL DISTANCE and HALF DISTANCE distances. Thanks a lot Steve for helping me become better and more importantly faster!
I loved your plan [BEGINNER Olympic 14 week plan, Coach email access, reusable, HR based] and completed my Olympic tri 21 minutes under goal.
Coach Steve’s training package helped me to perform better than I ever thought possible in the 2017 West Australian HALF DISTANCE full-distance. I went from being a middle of the pack finisher to finishing in the top 20% in my age group by following his intermediate 12 week plan on Training Peaks. I actually enjoyed the whole training period and went into the event feeling confident and strong. The plan was easy to follow with full detailed sets and is incredible value for money. The swim sets are particularly great with enough variety to keep it interesting. I’ve come back for another training program this year and Steve has been awesome answering my emails, almost in real time conversation. Highly recommended!
Hello! I am currently training on a 16 week Olympic triathlon plan and loving it.
With all kind wishes and support of crossed another milestone on 8th Oct 23. Completed my first FULL DISTANCE Goa HALF DISTANCE in 7:14:23 hrs. The weather was so brutal that out of 787 starters, only 517 crossed the finish line i.e. 34% DNF. Thanks a lot, Steven sir, on the hardest climb on the bike and 36’c run your words were in my mind – Believe your Training. Next target FULL DISTANCE Kazak.
I haven't signed up yet but have been chatting through social media and I'm super excited to find my next HALF DISTANCE or Olympic distance Tri to train for, and hoping to sign up with Smart Endurance Solutions. Seems like an amazing value and at very reasonable price points! Happy training 🙂
Just started on a HALF DISTANCE training plan after 5 yrs of sprint and Olympic distances. So far loving the plan but more than that within 48hrs of buying the plan already had a conversation with Steve to modify my plan to accommodate my cycling commute – so responsive and so reassuring to know I’m not over / under doing the training but can still cycle to work – Thanks, Steve!
Awesome plan, really seeing the gains as I go into the build phase of the plan, Steve responds quickly to emails while also providing interesting information along the way, will buy from Steve again 5 stars from me.
I’m 11 weeks into my 46 weeks Beginner FULL DISTANCE 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 FULL DISTANCE finisher.
