I hired Steven to bring more structure and direction to my training, as I had been racing for a few year but not achieving the results I wanted. After a meeting with Steven to discuss my goals for the year, he created a clear plan focusing on the races I wanted to do. I got a detailed plan allowing me to see what was ahead in the next few weeks taking into account personal and work commitments. Steven even managed to update my plan on the fly to accommodate my unpredictable working environment. Steven zoned in on and focused on my run weaknesses and without letting my biking or swimming slide, Steven pushed me to achieve multiple PB’s. I enjoyed the constant monitoring my workouts and commenting with support or a kick start when needed. Steven is a pleasure to work with and makes the whole training planning seem so easy.
I loved this program. It fit really well with my non-triathlon life and I really noticed an improvement in my fitness. The workouts were well structured and included a suitable amount of recovery time.
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!
Thank so much for a brilliant training program. Absolutely spot on as always. Another PB to add the collection over the last three months. Delighted!!
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.
Both me and my wife are using 36 weeks full-distance training program from smartendurancesolution, this will be her first full full-distance and my third full full-distance. This program we use now is specially made for full-distance Italy / emilia – romania by smartendurancesolution. So i have good comperance on other programs, I highly recommend smartendurancesolution full-distance training plan.
Thanks so much (for guidance on best plan to choose) and love the plan already
Coach Steve had the job of mentoring & preparing me for the IM Cork and a half-distance event in Galway.
Without his guidance/tips and tricks, I would not have got on as well as I did.
His humor/patience / experience were all vital and helped get me and also many others through the day”
This year I had a successful season thanks to the corona virus. I was even 3rd at the Czech FULL DISTANCE Championships and I improved my maximum
After a few false starts with race postponements and cancellations due to Covid I really felt the benefit of sticking to Coach Steve’s HALF DISTANCE plan as I felt strong and well prepared going into the race. It is a very easy to navigate, varied plan so I didn’t get bored. I could see the progress as I was moving through the base and build phases which also helped with injury prevention. I would highly recommend this and other plans as Steve was available to answer any queries.
Finished my first HALF DISTANCE this weekend – a great swim, fast bike and good enough run put me just sub-6! thanks to the training plan for getting me there. @ niagara falls barrelman
