I jumped into triathlon after not having done hardly any exercise for over a decade. I did a sprint to see if this was something I liked and I did. I signed up for a IMHALF DISTANCE and immediately bought Steve's HALF DISTANCE plan. I quickly saw progress with his extremely well structured plan and finished feeling great. Had it not been for Steve's plan I would have struggled to train and definitely would not have been able to finish like I did. I'm buying his IM plan and continuing on to the next level. Thanks!
I'm writing this review in the middle of a HALF DISTANCE training plan. But I've feel so supported by the coach that I already bought the FULL DISTANCE Training Plan. In 3 months I'm back in a very good shape and eager to get racing.
The main thing about getting an online training plan is the feeling you're getting a plan from a machine, this is the complete oposite with the coach helping me every step of the way! A excelent plan from a very nice human being !
Just finished your 12-week beginner Olympic plan and had an awesome day out – my swim was way better than expected, the bike had me passing lots of people and I finished the run a little slower than I hoped but my overall time was WAY faster than my target 3 hours (2:48!) – thank you so much!
Should I go straight onto an intermediate plan now? I want to race again soon
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 worked with Steve to train for my first full-distance FULL DISTANCE. I got tailored specific feedback on every session, which helped me ramp up my training volume, avoid injury and build fitness. I went into the race feeling confident about my plan, all three disciplines and the race itself. Steve’s coaching took the guesswork and stress of out competing in an FULL DISTANCE, and I plan to work with him again. Highly recommended!
Hello 🙂 I’m halfway through your Olympic distance training plan and decided to celebrate by taking part in a duathlon this past Sunday 🙂 it was a great race & I can’t wait to see how fast I can go on race day in a couple of weeks!
Absolutely love your plan!
Thanks so much 🙂
P.s. Also got to take this shiny thing home with me for AG podium – see picture
I wanted to say thanks!, simply Thanks! and thank you a lot. I followed mostly the 20 weeks plan for Training for my HALF DISTANCE and beat 3 out of my 4 goals.
1. finish under 6 hours – done
2. finish my 13.1 under 2h30 mins – done
3. be in aero for the most part of the bike – done
4. swim under 30 mins – not done but very very close!
I liked everything that you put in the program and although sometimes I was tired, life got in the way, or had other commitments, it was by all means v
Thanks for your plan/support, today I managed to keep a pace of 4:50 throughout the whole 1/2 marathon achieving a PB on this route.

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’!
I worked with Steve in achieving my goal of completing a full FULL DISTANCE. I found Steves Training plan very structured and easy to use but flexible enough to change when needed.
Completed my FULL DISTANCE and I continue to use Steve’s Training plans to stay fit.
I’m so glad I found your plan to help me accomplish my goal of completing my first triathlon this year. With no prior triathlon experience, I signed up for the Timberman HALF DISTANCE which was held on 9/18/22. I signed up for this race in late 2021. In January, I purchased this plan – INTERMEDIATE HALF DISTANCE 32 week plan includes email access to Coach, reusable, HR based and got started in February. I completed my HALF DISTANCE in 6 hours, 11 minutes and am very pleased with this
I recently bought a HALF DISTANCE plan and had some questions in relation to testing etc. The feedback I got was so swift and any query I’ve had relation to the training set were answered so quickly. It’s my first time training on my runs with HR and I’m loving it. A more structured approach is really working for me and having a coach to answer any questions is superb. an investment I should have done years go
