Long distance debut yesterday….12hrs 56mins wow man I still can't believe it! Hats off to everyone doing it on regular basis…one hell of a distance! Thank you Coach Steve
I used the beginner Olympic training plan for my first ever triathlon.Coach Steve's guides, YouTube videos, and carefully mapped out training plan, which flexed with my own HR/training zones through the Training Peaks app, made it clear what my goals around every event should be. I felt his training plan was foundational to my success – I exceeded my goal time and had a blast doing it. I will come back to him for any future training plans!
This was my 1st time on one of these camps. Overall the camp was excellent, from the comms prior to the camp, whatsapp group messages leading up to and during the weekend, topics covered, planning sessions (including due to weather changes) and the great atmosphere within the group during the camp.
Both coaches were very knowledgeable, approachable and chilled.
I would recommend one of Coach Steve's camps to anyone looking to gain confidence, insight or a kick in the a** prior to their race.
Steve's plan helped me successfully complete my first 70.3! The plan was manageable and I felt like I was able to move my workouts around as my scheduled allowed. I will be using the plan again to train for my next 70.3. Steve also provided helpful emails throughout the training plan.
Thank you coach Steve for the programme and the support when needed for me to complete Ironman bolton. If I ever do another triathlon I will 100% be speaking to Steve again!! Thanks coach
Thank you Coach and I love the training so far. I only wish i lived somewhere close by to train with you, because i see the positive benefits of your plans remotely!
Great program – easy to follow with links for drill demonstrations. Of course the programming isn’t easy….but if you are training for a long distance it probably shouldn’t be 😉
Coach Steve has incredible experience to deal the approach and training plan best suited for your goals. He will optimise the plan that works best along side your lifestyle. He is hands on and it’s this attention to detail that sets him above the rest. Highly recommend.
Have loved reading the SMartEnduro Community updates and motivational stories over the past year. Have done a few sprints and Olympics during the season but waited until my A race to post. Firstly, thanks to coach Steve for setting out a progressive and challenging training programme. I won’t lie, I didn’t stick to it meticulously but it was great motivation when other things, covid, family, life, posed distractions!!
Following the training plan worked like a charm, no surprises on race day
IRONMAN Wisconsin was a very good day.
Might have broken 12 hours had I not cramped, but honestly I don’t know that I care. It was an amazing experience!
Thanks for all of the coaching this past year! It means a lot to me
Since day one taking up triathlon in 2008 Stephen has been a massive reason why I’ve stuck with triathlon and enjoyed it to the extent that I have. He couldn’t do more to encourage and help those around him and is incredibly generous with both his time and knowledge. I’ve benefitted greatly from his technical knowledge and expertise, but it’s his absolute love of the sport and the passion that he brings to coaching that in my mind allows him to stand out as a coach. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
