I reached out to several coaches in July 2021 and Steve responded with not only the plan he would recommended, but also the encouragement I, a total noob needed to follow through! I went by his program and not only did I finish my first triathlon, but came in 3rd in my age group! I just signed up for an FULL DISTANCE HALF DISTANCE and will definitely be going with Couch Steve for my training plan!
I purchased your plan [Adv 48 week FULL DISTANCE] on Monday and wanted to let you know how pleased I am so far with the thought and detail that has gone into this plan
The (FULL DISTANCE BOLTON) course is brutal and the wind made it even worse, but it’s done now. It’s been a perfect training plan it worked and worked amazing around my life with uni. Honestly it’s been an amazing plan
. Great plan by the way and already loving the ability to swap days around for family/work etc
Thank you Coach, Seville Marathon was a good race for me and came from 3:52 to 3:39.
Just writing a short post to say thanks Steve for your training plan for my first HALF DISTANCE which was Outlaw Bowood. You patiently entertained many of my e-mails in the beginning when I was unsure about beginner or intermediate and helped me go for latter. Glad I did!
So today came in with a 6:12 time which considering on the run little of it is flat I was delighted with.
I worked with Steve in preparation for my first FULL DISTANCE in Cork in 2019. Steve left no stone unturned in getting me to the start line ready for action. He ran a course reccce weekend which was invaluable and shared some super raceway advice. The training plan and coaching was excellent as was the feedback from Steve who was always available. I would highly recommend Steve for anyone looking to achieve their goals!
What a fantastic service. Coach Steve is very responsive and clearly knows his stuff. I purchased a HALF DISTANCE training programme which Coach Steve personalised specifically for my training time restrictions, Wattbike and strengths. The program uploaded to training peaks is detailed enough to have some clearly thought out science behind it, yet explained simple enough for me to understand and implement it! Highly recommended – 5 out of 5!
Steve is an experienced coach. He has a thorough understanding of training peaks and how to interpret the data so if you are using TP then Steve can help you to leverage the information to provide more insights. I used Steve's plan for my 1st HALF DISTANCE and finished it injury free in the time as trained and planned.
Coach Steve is awesome. If you are reading this review because you consider buying one of his plans then stop reading and just buy it now. And if you doubt which plan is right for you, just send him an email to ask for advice. I used his 36 weeks Beginners plan to train for my first FULL DISTANCE, and everything went as smooth as can be. I got to the start line strong and confident, and to the finish line happy and still strong after a great run.
Not enough space here for the praise he deserves!
Just wanted to say thanks for your advanced Oly training program I enjoyed it and used it for my race this weekend (1500 m lake / 28 mi bike / 10 K run). Fun getting back into it, even if a little more effort beating the “young bucks” now that I am 50 years young/old!

Hello! I am currently training on a 16 week Olympic triathlon plan and loving it.
