Plan was comprehensive and ensured that I had the strength and endurance on race day to set a personal best. Thanks Steve!
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.
This plan was perfect for what I needed to train for USAT sprint Nationals. I felt fully prepared to race well, which helped me not be nervous. Not a PR only because this course had more climbing then what I normally do for a sprint but overall I hit most of my goals, had fun, and looking forward to the next one using the same plan. Thank you so so much.
I just completed my first sprint Aquabike in Skerries, Dublin at the weekend
Thanks to your plan and support, I feel great, I’ve got the fitness bug again, and regularly empty my bank account (for I definitely need…) in pursuit of what is now a firm love of Aquabike training. I can’t believe I’ve trained 6-8 times a week for 20 weeks without injury: I’ve tried nearly everything and always get injured.
Thanks a million for your superb plans, work and support! On to the next one!
I cut ten minutes off my time. Your plan [Beginner 8 week Sprint HR based] was great and I’m looking forward to using it again.
PR’d. Great program! Thanks!
Had a great time at my Guelph Lake Sprint, it was helped that the odd distances off 750/30/7 really suits my strengths and weaknesses 😉 Was able to snag my first AG win! Looking forward to my A race coming up though!
Just wanted to drop a note to say really i’ve enjoyed the first 2 weeks. Great program that really suits me. Just need to start understanding the numbers during the first recovery week and see the improvements.
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 IRONMAN 70.3 and will definitely be going with Couch Steve for my training plan!
Hi Coach Steve – just to let you know I nailed my first sprint triathlon last weekend with the help of your beginner plan (and the last minute email from you reassuring me I could do it!) – thanks so much for your help – going to enjoy off season now …. but maybe Olympic distance next year? 😉
Thank you for the training plan. I placed second in my age group in my sprint triathlon yesterday.
Was nervous training for my first tri – but emailed Coach with some questions and soon was on his beginner sprint plan – it was much less confusing then – I followed the instructions and get more and more confident as I did – and before I knew it 12 weeks later I was a triathlete! Thanks CS
