A Proven Customized Training Plan to fit with you and your life circumstances. No matter your endurance sport we can create a plan for you.
Our Endurance Specific Training Plans are custom built for you, offering a cost-effective approach to coaching, following a well proven process.
Why customized and not simply “buy our training plans”? We have sold our plans for years and while they work and work exceptionally well when followed. The biggest issue we found is we lay out our best plans but that doesn’t always fit your life circumstances or where you are starting from. Thus while the framework of the plan is great, the application and thus the execution of the plan may not be great and thus won’t give you the best possible outcome.
When the plan is changed. It’s not the plan!
These custom training plans are perfect if you’re new to endurance training, or you simply don’t have the time nor the expertise to build out your plan due to your life circumstances.
The biggest problem athletes face when building out their own plans is FOMO. You build out a plan and then an article comes out with this ‘must do session’. So you add that in, then you read something else and are like hmmm, maybe I need that too. Now you have a plan of confusion and instead of having something based on solid fundamentals and that works within the confines of your life ie. a straight line from A to B, you end up zig zagging your way or worse chasing your tail.
Our Endurance Specific Customized plans avoid that.
Our 20 week plans are for well seasoned and new endurance athletes alike. How can that be? Because they’re customized to you. Your life circumstances, background and where you are starting from.
The plan starts with focusing on further developing your aerobic system and allowing your soft tissue to develop the resiliency they need to handle the demands you place upon them.
Our heart and lungs develop quicker than our soft tissue and that is a cause of niggles and full blown injuries when they aren’t yet prepared.
By following YOUR customized program and the supplemental body maintenance techniques and nutrition/hydration practices we advise it will all help develop the durability you need to race well but also improve your overall health.
We develop the training routine over these opening weeks. While sessions change, and progress throughout your training over this plan, there is a significant amount of repetition. The key is not to under value the role of repetition. It helps with the acquisition of motor skills, the ability to keep form under duress and allows you to focus on the training and dilute the distractions (noise).
The simple rules are show up, work hard and listen. Oh and working ‘hard’ may just be going easy when you are advised and not ‘that little bit too hard’. Which for some is ‘hard work’!
As Tim Grover the athletic trainer used by Michael Jordan (and many elite NBA players) said, it requires no talent, no special genetics, or any skill whatsoever to show up, work hard, and listen.”
Do those things and things usually work out pretty good.
With our Endurance Specific methods you’ll see:
This is a complete ‘plug and play’ solution. Here’s what you get:
20 weeks of highly specific and targeted training that takes you from now to your race or challenge and puts you in your best ever shape to realize your goals. This plan ensures you develop the specific skills needed for your endurance sport. What this means is we develop your strength, speed and essential motor skills first and only push the race specific endurance closer to your event. The beautiful thing is that you develop aerobic endurance as a byproduct of the sessions you do. What’s more is that each session is placed so that we can create the specific stimulus we need on one system while a previously taxed system gets the recovery it needs. This means we can balance the hormonal effects in training, which allows us to continually work hard but smart. This plan has been developed after thousands of hours of research, testing, refining to get more results in less training time. It’s been proven time and time again by my athletes that continually set new personal bests.
Note: Results obviously do vary by individual. To ensure you get the maximum results of the ES Custom Blueprint, you need to read and follow all the directions/advice. The results achieved will be directly related to the effort you invest. For example- if you just follow the plan you’ll do well, but if you follow the plan and are ‘there’ in training with full focus and bring the required efforts (that means the easy stuff is just if not more important as the harder efforts) you’ll achieve much more. The same can be said with regards to how you fuel and look after your body again follow the advice and you’ll be in a much better position to truly execute a phenomenal race on race day.
Detailed session notes let you know what each session is about and how you do it.
This guide comes bundled with Ironman Blueprint and shows you how to develop or should I say redevelop the important aspect of intensity based off of your bodies signals. These intensities levels are easy to understand and don’t leave you confused or worried.
This is where I give you guidelines on developing a daily nutrition schedule that will build upon your health and performances. What we fuel our bodies is what makes them perform. If we put garbage in, we get garbage out. We keep this stupidly simple yet very effective.
Strength and core training is important yet neglected. We do gym training in triathlon, to build strength, but to also develop a resilient body that wards off injury and gives us a platform to leverage strength and power from. This helps improve recovery from our aerobic endurance sessions.
I have made it easy for you. Just click the links within the strength plan and you’ll be taken to a video library of each exercise where I show you how to do the exercises.
This guide gives you strategies that will help you recover quickly and more optimally from your training sessions. It also contains how-to pictures on self myofascial release (self massage).
There are also video links to yoga and stretching sessions.
Body maintenance and quick recovery is a key to optimal health and performance.
This document goes through one of the most key aspects of your preparation for your Ironman or Long Course event. That is practicing the fourth event – Nutrition.

You want it second nature by race day.
