The plan Steven created for me provided the structure and motivation that was missing when I trained on my own. This made all the difference to my training weeks and was instrumental in helping me reach my race day goal!
I used Smartendurancesolutions for my 1st full Ironman this year, I can’t recommend Smartendurancesolutions enough, Steven took me from very low levels of fitness to completing an Ironman in a time I had only dreamed of. There is great feedback on all sessions. It is easy to see all sessions have a purpose and tie into the overall plan. Heart-rate controlled sessions, which make it all easier on race day to stay on target in zone and in control. The added advantage of having a coach who is very experienced and accomplished long distance racer, is great for bringing a calming effect, for those times of pre-race panic
This program was absolutely crucial to me completing my first half Ironman. As I did not have a lot of free time to dedicate to it, this plan helped make me feel that I was getting every ounce of performance from the effort I put in. It was also great to have Steven so quick and responsive with any questions about training that I had along the way. Had a wonderful time through it all and can’t wait to train for another with my coach by my side!
Coach Steve and his Olympic plan are awesome!!! I improved by almost 20 percent from my last race, which was only 6 months ago. I rode the bike leg faster than I've ever ridden a bicycle, and my swim was the strongest ever. I emailed Coach multiple times during the program and he was superbly responsive. This race was such a phenomenal experience and Coach Steve and his program aided immensely in that. I would recommend his programs to any triathletes of all levels without hesitation.
Thanks Steven @ SMart Endurance Solutions, this is a great plan well structured and easy to follow. I followed this plan missing the odd session here and there, but with the aid of proper nutrition I got new sprint PB and to make it even better i got a 5km run PB aswell in the same race.
I've been boosting to my friends about this. The Olympic will be my next adventure for a new PB.
Steve’s training plans are really well tailored by event, duration, ability and age-group. Following his plan has made a step change to my training. Even though there has been no formal racing of late, I have seen continuous improvements in training ‘test sessions’ and virtual races. It has also been reassuring to have email access to Steve when the questions / doubts / second-guessing can creep in.
Thank you Steve.
As a beginner to both TrainingPeaks and using a coach, I was thoroughly impressed with how simple and (so far) effective Coach Steve’s plan is. I’m quite hot on hitting the right sessions at the right intensity to be able to be the best athlete I can come race day and Coach Steve’s method has allowed me to be rested for the hard sessions and spent enough after to enable strong benefits through recovery. Steve has also been very helpful with answering any questions/suspicions I may have in using my data, planning for the race, and choosing the right plan. I’m currently about halfway through my race plan, and already itching to get going!
I just wanted to reach out and let you know that your plan has been essential to some athletic gains that I never knew possible. The plan helps me organize and thus find time for the new baby, the wife, the blog, the book, and new business, not to mention recovery. My swim has become a new machine since learning how to measure my CSS and apply techniques from the drills. I am much stronger and less fatigued in my stroke- all thanks to drills and the arduous backstroke you implement. I have come to love the training so much I have been referring everyone I know who doesn’t already have a coach to your site. I thank you, from the bottom of my heart. You are helping me reach a dream and by doing this I am able to help others more!
Have been training for a number of years under coach Steve and I have to say he is brilliant and very flexible with training sessions. Any questions are answered /cleared up very quickly. Sessions will be planned to your abilities & availability.
Highly recommend coach Steve 👍
Second time I have used the plan [Intermediate 70.3 12 week plan] and I really like the workout descriptions and guidance
What a ride guys I m just over the moon with nearly 23mins improvement on the distance compared to my last 70.3 in Bahrain…
Smartendurancesolutions thank you! Coach Steven Moody perfect training plan
Awesome service, with creation of a plan for the Swedish weather, a pile of encouragement and humour to calm my first IM nerves. Kalmar 2019 here I come. Thank coach Steve
