Just wanted to say ended up with 2 PBs this season from one of your marathon plans – a B race half marathon PB (complete bonus – very happy) and nailed my A race marathon goal – thank you and happy holidays to you and your family Coach Steve
I am very happy with your plan and I will keep using it and most probably others, too.
I have been working away using your base builder for the HALF DISTANCE and have really enjoyed it. It makes life so simple when I just press a button and go. Love not having to think what sport I need to do and what do I need to do while doing it.
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 🙂
Thanks for the awesome plan! I’ve been working hard for my Ironman 70.3 and can’t wait to crush it. I definitely feel like the program is benefitting me.
If you read one review read this!
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’!
This plan was perfect for what I needed to train for USAT sprint Nationals. I felt fully prepared to race well, which helped me not be nervous. Not a PR only because this course had more climbing then what I normally do for a sprint but overall I hit most of my goals, had fun, and looking forward to the next one using the same plan. Thank you so so much.
I used your 40 week Beginner FULL DISTANCE Program as part of my training for FULL DISTANCE California because it fitted my personal time and commitment goals..
I met every one of my goals. My goals were to finish, to enjoy the experience, and to come out of it injury free. I finished in 15 hours and 3 minutes…exactly where I wanted to be.
FULL DISTANCE was a bucket list item for me, and you helped me check that box! If I need another program for any of my other goals, I will be coming back to you!
Thank you again,
This is my 2nd time using a plan from Awesome Coach Steve. The first time around, the plan guided me to exceeding my goal in my first 140.6 distance. As someone who has experienced his fair share of injuries, I was thrilled that this plan kept me injury free! Other important points:
– Coach Steve has always responded promptly to any questions that I have had about the plan
– A wide range of plans to fit anyone's starting point and time availability
– Swim Videos included
– Value for your $$$
I owe you a big deal of gratitude. Dont know how you do it, but the way you planned your program made me, I feel, peak at the perfect time. Likewise, I am pleasantly surprised that your plan catered for hiccups that life throws at us.
The HALF DISTANCE training plan from Steve was brilliant and was key to completing my first HALF DISTANCE. The balance of set training days alongside rest was perfectly balanced and fitted my family/work life without much stress. Steve was great at answering my e-mailed questions almost immediately and I have already been in touch to discuss my next plan for an FULL DISTANCE Full which shows how good Steve and his plans are! Highly recommend to anyone starting their Triathlon journey!
I just finished your BEGINNER Olympic 12-week training plan and finished my first triathlon yesterday (had a flat tyre though so had to walk to T2) but felt really strong and still finished my run with a good tempo. Your training plan definitely helped me achieve that!
