I’ve been using the training plan for 3 weeks now and love it. I don’t have to think about anything, the explanations are well detailed and it’s easy to follow. Looking forward to finishing it!
Got an excellent (beginners) IM program off (Coach Steve) via Training Peaks: Easy to follow prescriptions for endurance, threshold, and higher intensity sessions across all three disciplines. It’s got comprehensive instructions for swim drills, stretching for before/after the bike, and how much (by duration) S+C work to thrown into the plan which is really useful as a novice.
The plan progressively banks up fitness and strength over the months – I can see my fitness improving gradually week on week and the built-in step-back weeks are helping stave off injury and fatigue. The plan has taken the guess-work out of my training so I’m getting consistently stronger and faster.
A GREAT investment and better value for $ than any of the tri gear/gadgets I’ve bought! Experience counts.
I am following a 40 week advanced FULL DISTANCE plan. I found out about Coach Steve from TrainingPeaks and was amazed by the raving reviews. Half way into the plan CS has clearly over delivered. The plan is well thought through, but the extra services provided is what sets him apart. Unbelievably quick response times on e-mails, with tailored and motivational answers. My highest recommendations!
Thanks again for your responses, its refreshing to speak to a coach who seems to care about what the athlete is purchasing
Training is going well so far! Thank you so much for this plan. My bikes and runs are progressing nicely.
Steve has helped reeducate me with the benefits of technology hoping to PB in Switzerland this year. Great coach and always there to help 5/5
As someone who needs structure to my training I found working with Steve invaluable. Constant feedback helped keep me focused and when I was unfortunate to pick up an injury we worked together to ensure training was back on track.
I searched through a number of training programmes on Training Peaks and was delighted I chose Coach Steve and Smart Endurance Solutions.
From a long time absence away from triathlon, I wanted something that would get me up to date without having to think too hard, and that would also adapt to my own development.
So far it has challenged me without being over-faced. The Facebook community and ability to email Coach Steve is a really nice extra for such a good value package.
Hi Coach Steve! I’m loving this plan you have developed. Thank you!
Loved the plan – it has taught me a lot and put me on track to compete in my first tri race (olympic).
Very happy with the program so far and will definitely benefit from the structured swim sessions
Steve is a legend!! Received my personalised training plan for my 1st HALF DISTANCE and it looks class, he’s blended existing sessions with other coaches. Each session gives pointers and tips for best performance. Feeling very motivated as I start out on my triathlon journey!!
Highly recommend Smart Endurance Solutions!!
