The plan is very useful and practical ,its my first time doing a training plan with training peak , and its very good.
Just finished a Advanced Olympic training plan having raced last weekend. Definitely the strongest and best prepared I’ve felt going into a race and even though it’s first race back from Coronavirus had a really strong race.
Also had a great response emailing Steve directly with various questions and also had a really clear and helpful feedback.
After initially signing up for a practical HALF DISTANCE plan, I then moved to his coaching. The tailored approach with constant feedback makes the whole process and delivers everything I want from training. You can see the improvements with each block but most importantly training is enjoyable. Coach Steve gets the balance between tough sessions and recovery just right so that training is consistent. Steve’s knowledge on all aspects of each discipline would make me highly recommend his plans & coaching.
I really enjoyed your beginner 36 week full IM plan for my prep for IM Florida this past weekend.
This is my 4th year using SMart Endurance ,
The attention to detail in feedback from all sessions is exceptional ,
Always at the end of a phone when advice or direction is needed,
I enlisted the help of Coach Steven to provide a comprehensive and structured training plan and improve my overall performance, he exceeded all my expectations! Coach Steven used Training Peaks to plan my sessions and monitor my progress, I found this hugely beneficial as it allowed me to track my improvement on-line. In addition, Coach Steven was very responsive to any queries I had. His experience of competing at multiple FULL DISTANCE events proved invaluable. Within six months of enlisting Coach Steven’s services, I recorded PB’s at Sprint, Olympic and HALF DISTANCE distances. I’m delighted to be working with Steven for another season, I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Just wanted to say thanks for your advanced Oly training program I enjoyed it and used it for my race this weekend (1500 m lake / 28 mi bike / 10 K run). Fun getting back into it, even if a little more effort beating the “young bucks” now that I am 50 years young/old!
[Overall placing 5th of 175/AG placing 1st 50-54]
Coach Steve’s plan helped me to have a great Oly distance race. While it wasn’t my first tri, my event marked my return to triathlon after a period of time away. I found his plan to be well crafted, easy to integrate into a training routine, and it proved, for me, to be nearly the perfect plan by meeting my overall triathlon and lifestyle needs. I was so impressed with his plan and assistance, in fact, that I retained his services to help me prep for an upcoming HALF DISTANCE! Thanks CS!!
Yesterday I raced in the Nepean Triathlon in Sydney. This race is Australia's oldest triathlon, celebrating its 40th anniversary.
I had a good race, coming 3rd in AG with a course PB!
I’ve never signed up to a structured training plan before.
So for me your plan & the structure & Trainingpeaks is great motivation. Trying to get those boxes to go green keeps me on my toes.
I really like the way the plan is laid out. Eg the swims are normally on the same days of the week, so it’s easier to plan them.
I already feel fitter & stronger than I have in a long time…..so the plan works 🙂
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!
Coach Steve and i started to work at the end of 2018. In May 2019 i finshed my first HALF DISTANCE, i was surprised how well prepared i have been. In September i finished another HALF DISTANCE, smashed my PB on one of the hardest courses on IM HALF DISTANCE calendar. Never in my life was i so fit and strong, this was by far best race ever. Now we are getting ready for full distance!
Steve is great coach, very responsive, always ready for good advice and guidance and always taking care of his athletes!
