Couldn't be happier with my FULL DISTANCE training plan. Very easy to follow from a beginner's point of view
A wonderful training plan that fits in with my busy work lifestyle. The sessions are well prepared and well thought of with many little bits of advice along the way. The guidance will get you through to race day leaving you with much confidence, meaning you only need to remember to bring your kit! The author is very approachable and helped me pick out the right plan for me and went out of his way in doing so. I am very appreciative of that and would certainly recommend Steve to everyone. Thank!
I am now enjoying my training plan which I purchased in June. And I
can feel the improvement from all three sports.
I’m writing this review as a 3-day old FULL DISTANCE. And I did it with the help of a “46 weeks Beginner FULL DISTANCE plan”. Before starting the plan I had done sub 4h marathon but I had zero racing or even training experience in swimming and biking. When I was choosing my plan I wrote for several online couches with my questions and I liked Steve’s answers the most. I didn’t regret choosing his plan a single time. Steve answered all the questions that I had during the training, he also adjusted the plan to fit my race day(my race was almost a month earlier than I have planned). The training plan wasn’t easy but what else can you expect when training for FULL DISTANCE? Be prepared that weekends will be tough but they will make YOU tough as well. I was confident before the race that I will finish it. Thank you, Steve, for making my dream come true!
If I could give 6 stars to coach Steve, I would. Initially I bought one of his excellent training plans and he gave me all the guidance needed to implement it. I then joined his 1-2-1 coaching squad and this was the best move I could have made. Coach Steve prepares my weekly plan based, not only on his forecasted programme, but on my current conditions, commitments, etc. Therefore, I am always training at my best! Training on heart rate I have seen a huge improvements in all three disciplines.
Coach Steve’s HALF DISTANCE training plan not only got me to the finish line on my first HALF DISTANCE FULL DISTANCE event, but managed to prepare me well enough to beat my expected 6 hours by 22 minutes!
Will most definately stick to SMart Endurance for my next event.
I’m a few weeks into your 44-week advanced training program and I’m really enjoying all of the training sessions.
Hey Coach Steve – I just completed 2 Olympic triathlons using your 16-week Intermediate plan and they went great.
Thanks very much!
just thought I’d drop you a message. I’m just over 2 weeks into my plan and really enjoying it. The odd day changed due to cold but managed the rest. PB, 3rd lady, and 1st in my age group at the weekend park run, so all looking great
Steve makes exercise enjoyable. I look forward to my next session every day. Steve's experience is very reliable. My overall well-being is greatly improved. The triathlon is secondary to the overall benefit of being coached by Steve. My wife loves what he has done to me. A word of warning, don't eat doughnuts during your interview.
Joined the IM HALF DISTANCE programme in May 23 for my first ever IM Goa HALF DISTANCE. The programme helped me so much and enhanced my stamina and strength for all three disciplines nospecially Bike part. Finished the event with full of energy and smile on face. Now I’ll go for training for full distance and join the 140.6 plan. Thank you Coach Steve for ultimate programme.
Previously coached by Steve in 2016 when undertaking Full IM training. 5 years, 3 kids and a few stone later I'm back working with Steve, training towards FULL DISTANCE Cork HALF DISTANCE in August 2021. Steve has tailored my training excellently to allow for family and work commitments as well as dilligently managing my training load to reduce the risk of injury and allow consistent progress. As ever, Steve is personable, easy going and flexible, always putting the athlete first. Would highly recommend!
