After completing a number of half Ironman’s I reached a plateau in training and was finding it difficult to move forward.
I enrolled in a training program with Coach Steve and after setting my goals he starting providing feedback on a weekly basis on my sessions.
In between I obtained pbs in sprint and Olympic distance.
After postponement of events he changed plan to accommodate my desires.
The result a 5.28 in Ironman 70.3 Turkey at 53 years without any major injuries along the way.
The scientific structured training approach using data has been excellent.
The coaches feedback is vital in understanding how all of the insights work together to improve performance.
The plan looks amazing and I’m super happy with it
I have worked with Steve from sprint races to 70.3 distance. Steve provides excellent planned out programmes and provides detailed feedback to ensure you are making progress and know your numbers for race day.
Thanks Steve, what and awesome day!! Never would have got to the start let alone crossed the line as an Ironman. Hope your day was good 👍 looks like all the guys smashed it 💪
Very thankful to Steve for putting together a plan for me to help make sure I’m ready to go for Ironman Cork 2022! Definitely come to Steve if you’re looking for something similar. The turnaround time was super quick and the plan is very thorough. Couldn’t recommend more highly.
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 Ironman Cork 70.3 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!
Thank you so much, Coach Steve, for your support. Great tips on pre and race day which were very helpful.
After a couple weeks break, I'll be back at it and have some goals to reach. Would appreciate some advice on best training program to be ready for Santa Cruz and crush that course
Hi Steve, just a note to say thanks for all your assistance over the past year. I feel that I have improved since we started working together and am looking forward to working with next year in achieving my goals.
I found Steve’s plans on Training Peaks as I was looking for an experienced and quality coach after signing up to my first Ironman. I was delighted the level of service I received. The amount of detail he included was exactly what I was looking for. Its extremely comprehensive and nothing is left to chance. He was very responsive and attentive (I had about a million questions), with nothing being too much trouble. Training went to plan and I was delighted with the time I achieved. Thanks Steve!
Bought your plan to keep me focused – ended up not only losing weight but making serious gains on my weakest discipline – the run …. now holding 6 min/km for a zone 2 run – giddy up! Thanks Coach Steve
I can’t say enough about Coach Steve and his training plans!
I’m only 5 weeks in to my 32 week beginner Ironman training plan and
have already seen huge improvements in my fitness…especially my
running! At the start, 4 km seemed like a hurdle but now I’m easily
running 7-12 km 3+ times a week. It took me months to reach those kind
of distances when I was training for a half several years back.
On top of the great plans, Coach Steve has been incredibly accessible
and has helped to move around my workouts to work with my crazy
schedule and my fitness level…it’s been super helpful knowing that
there’s someone there to help and build a bit flexibility into the
program, rather than just skipping workouts all together.
I’m really just getting started and already have a ton of confidence
in my ability to make it across the finish line. I would highly
recommend SMart Endurance Solutions and Coach Steve
