Very happy with the program so far and will definitely benefit from the structured swim sessions
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 !
Great plan! Gives you also excellent base fitness to participate half marathons and sub 5 hr cycling events.
I loved the training plan provided!
I really liked the construction of the plan and how I could adapt it to my personal life. The team is great and answers quickly.
I purchased the 12 week HALF DISTANCE Advanced training plan. It was easy to follow, Coach Steve was very responsive & helpful via email – overall excellent value for money!
Being able to reorder sessions in TrainingPeaks is very useful, so recommend the Premium plan (which you get free for 30 days).
Following this plan allowed me to take 25 mins off my HALF DISTANCE PB (despite missing run sessions due to injury) – that says it all! Thanks Coach Steve 🙂
Bring on the bling!! Huge thanks to Steve and Smartendurancesolutions – your plans and insight have not only kept me injury free this winter but built an aerobic base which has seen me set 3 5k pb (Winning our club handicap competition) and also complete a marathon without feeling like death at the end!! Next up – FULL DISTANCE Italy!!
Second time I have used the plan [Intermediate HALF DISTANCE 12 week plan] and I really like the workout descriptions and guidance
Last year I set a goal to race in FULL DISTANCE Western Australia. Considering at that stage I was 122kg and hadn’t raced in 9 years, it was a big ask.
I needed a plan.
Through Training Peaks, I discovered a 48 week FULL DISTANCE plan for beginners offered by Coach Steve. The plan was reasonably priced for the duration and detail and offered support via email.
Had i of known how much support, the timeliness of the support and the quality of the support before I signed up, I’d had thought I was getting the too good to be true plan.
Steve is FABULOUS!
He has been a wonderful support over the last 9 months. He has been patient with my questions, all 3000 of them. His advice has been wonderful and his encouragement has been appreciated.
So brilliant has Steve been over my journey to date, when my FULL DISTANCE was cancelled and I deferred to FULL DISTANCE Cairns in June, Steve was the first I emailed to lock in a new HALF DISTANCE plan to take me to Geelong HALF DISTANCE in February and on to my first FULL DISTANCE in 2021.
Today I’m fitter than I’ve ever been and thanks to the super easy to follow plan that builds progressively and which is achievable each week, I am also 27kgs lighter.
Thanks Steve for being there on my journey to FULL DISTANCE. Couldn’t have done it without your help.
Very grateful to Steve for the HALF DISTANCE beginner 30 week plan, tailored to my desire to improve my swimming while also getting ready for my first HALF DISTANCE race in August. It seems to be very comprehensive, i’ve gone for the heart rate option, and really appreciate Steve’s availability by email to answer queries, tweak plan etc. Fantastic value for money. I’ll be adding on his S&C sessions to it which are designed to integrate naturally. Set my start date for mid January so good motivation for the NY.
I did Dublin City triathlon yesterday, standard distance, first one since 2015….I was happy with how it went. 1st in age group, even though there was only 3 of us😀
I liked the training plan and I loved all the heart rate training and could definitely see improvements.
I am currently using one of your (Advanced) FULL DISTANCE plans that i purchased a few weeks ago and i am really enjoying it. Thanks!
Finished with a 6:09 and change. I was really happy with it overall.
Appreciate all your help along the way!
