I've trained with your 24 week Intermediate Ironman 70.3 plan. I am a former national rowing athlete but for the last 17 years (up until 6 months ago) I have done no training. In this 6 months period I followed your plan (apart from my wedding and honeymoon week!).
Last Sunday I finished the Ironman 70.3 Turkey easily in 4:50:04 without any injury and with a wide smile in my face. I would like to thank you for your great training plan. It would be very hard without a specific plan like yours.

Finished my first Full Marathon yesterday with your Novice Training Plan. Finished strong! Thanks
-Susan McDevitt 8th October 2018-
I chose the Intermediate Ironman Training Plan because the amount of hours would be realistic for me. The plan comfortably builds you towards the endurance fitness required to complete the full distance. My goal was to finish the Norseman and I raced my best full distance triathlon so far! Finishing 80th overall (Black T-Shirt!!) simply proves the plan (including the numerous supporting documents about pacing, strength exercise, swimming drills, … ) can set you up for a great race performance for even extreme triathlon.
- Herbert Idink 8th August 2018-
Just wanted to drop a message and let you know that I was extremely pleased with the plan! Your plan combined with TrainingPeaks is the perfect combination. It made my first triathlon season very enjoyable. Overall this was a great intro into the sport.
- Mike O'Reilly 2nd August 2018 -
Job done in Switzerland 🇨🇭 thanks for your help and an excellent plan and support! In the end....11:55 total on a 35C day...
In total, happy with my race and really enjoyed the event.
- Rob Whittaker 31st July 2018 -
Your training plan really boosted my result! I’ve shaved 20 minutes off my previous 70.3 result. All I can say that your expertise is really brilliant and could serve anybody interested in improving.
- Fabio Comba 29th July 2018 -
I wanted to say thank you for a great Ironman Intermediate program. It really helped me get in tremendous shape for my first ever Ironman (Lake Placid). I'll leave a great review on Training Peaks in the next few days. I appreciate all your insight and help!!
- Justin Seconi 28th July 2018 -
I just finished the advanced 12 week duathlon plan and ended with 3rd overall, 1st in age group and a PB on my bike. Thank you so much for a great training plan. Everyone should be following them!
- Patrick Keys 22nd July 2018 -
I just raced in San Diego after following another one of your plans and got 2nd in my age group as well as the 5th fastest bike split out of over 300. I did the same race last year and I was 7 minutes faster this year! I have really been loving these so much.
- Nick Goldston 25th June 2018 -
I just wanted to thank you for the intermediate 70.3 16wk plan. I completed the event last Sunday. Prior to this I had never done a cycle event and it was only my third running event. I surpassed all my expectations, completing in 5hr 27m. Not bad for a 47 yr old first timer! The structured program made the training more interesting and I never would’ve got so fit without it.
- Roy Byres 16th June 2018 -
Yesterday I completed my first ever Triathlon, accomplishing a goal I set for myself a year ago after a skiing accident. Never a real athlete, and approaching 60, I bought your low volume training program off of Training Peaks. I found it to be clear, educational and with a perfect pace of progression. It took me safely from the couch to the race. Thanks, Phil and team for helping me achieve an important personal goal. I feel great.
- John Clark 12th June 2018 -
When I purchased the IM 20 week Advanced Plan,I'd thought maybe I was being over ambitious, but after sorting out the power and HR zones everything fell into place, was able to tick all the training schedule boxes and managed 11hrs 28mins for IM Lanzarote 2018 finishing strong with a 3hr 28min marathon, totally exceeding my expectations. Super Happy.
- Chris McGuigan 30th May 2018 -
Last weekend I raced in Olympic Distance 2:17h 8 overall and 1st my age group
45 to 40. I want to say that your program is great, fun and very well planned.
I’m really happy to found professional coaches at affordable price who really know what they doing.
- Oscar Fumero 26th May 2018 -
Thank you so much for your excellent training plan. I've just got a new PB 5:38 at Vietnam Ironman 70.3 2018 last Sunday, nearly 1 hour improvement from last year. I can't be happier.
- Tuan Nguyen Anh 16th May 2018-
I used your 8 week standard duathlon training program and found it immensely helpful. Thanks to your training program and the countless answers to my questions I was able to qualify for my first Worlds! I cannot thank you guys enough for everything you did for me in the past 8 weeks, no way would I have been able to get into shape to race against the best if it wasn't for your guidance.
- Patrick Keys 20th April 2018 -
I have made nice gains in pace and power following your plan. For example I'm about to go on a 2 hour zone 2 run at 7:50 pace whereas 3 months ago I was doing the same run at 8:40 pace. Obviously an improvement of fitness. Thanks also for being responsive to my questions.
- Peter Eberle. 10th April 2018 -
I can't tell how much I am enjoying the plan. It's amazing to know what training I am going to do weeks before. I am very grateful for your programs.
Thank you for all your hard work.
- Rachel Kjearsgaard. 6th April 2018 -
Hi coach. After eight weeks following your training plan (16 week IRONMAN 70.3) my FTP has gone from from 188w to 205w. Thank you so much.
- Tuan Nguyen Anh. 15th March 2018 -
I currently have 8 weeks left until my event, which is the IRONMAN 70.3 Pays D'Aix in France 13 May. I am loving the training plan it's really been a great investment. The sessions are really progressive and I am enjoying the push!
- Chris Wittle. 12th March 2018 -
I am not sure how I came across your site but I am so glad I did! I have already competed in 2 full distance and 5 half distance races with good results (4.50 for HIM and 11.40 for IM distances) but after I found your training plans I am now aiming much higher. From a threshold pace 1:45 min/100 I can swim a 1:40 min/100 with ease. The bike workouts are awesome. Time files even on the trainer in my cold attic. I love the speed skill runs as well because they are really to the point. I can see myself already improving dramatically and I am not even half way through to my "A" race. Thanks so much for putting this great training plan together!
- Ivan Crojach Karacic, 6th March 2018 -
Thank you for your support over these couple of days. A great service you provide.
Jacqui Parkinson, 31st February 2018
After 5 or so weeks of using your program I'm already reaping huge gains! It's amazing how important it is to be consistent with training and I used the less intense schedule of the Prep Phase to get accustomed to scheduling in my training and doing all the prep/etc necessary to ensure it got done every morning. I'm also amazed that there haven't even been any really "hard" workouts yet and I'm already running 5k's in just over 20 minutes which is faster now at 40 years old than when I was in high school and in my mid 20's. Needless to say I'm stoked about the upcoming season.
- Daniel Dragic, 18th February 2018 -
Thank you very much for your helpful response to all my questions.
- Roy Bogue, 27th January 2018 -
I recently used your Ironman 70.3 12 week plan and loved it and managed to achieve a third place at Ironman 70.3 UK in Weymouth qualifying me for the World Championships in South Africa next September. I was over the moon!
- Lara Newell, 2nd November 2017 -
On Sunday I raced my first Ironman 70.3 in Cozumel, Mexico under the guidance of your Intermediate Level plan. I finished 6th, earning a slot in the 2018 Ironman 70.3 World Championship to be held in Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa. The result is beyond my wildest dreams, especially in unbearable heat and humidity
- Juan Highland
Mexico City, 26th September 2017 -
Thank you for helping me find the right program to follow. It was the World Championships yesterday in Rotterdam. I came 7th overall in my Age Group out of 117 and 2nd Brit, I'm totally over the moon with my result, especially as it was my first ever one. Felt so calm and relaxed on the day of the race, as I knew i was well prepared and had done the training.
- Ian Johnson, 18th September 2017 -
I would like to thank you for your training program. I have been following your 24 week intermediate Ironman program and finished Ironman Vichy in 11:08 beating my PB by 1 hour and 45 minutes, surpassing all my expectations.
- Joel Davis, 5th September 2017 -
I thought I'd let you know how I got on at the World Champs in Penticton last week. I used your schedule. I was thinking that at my first Worlds I'd probably be in the bottom half of the age group, but I managed 18th out of 46 and 2nd Brit, so that exceeded my wildest expectations! Thanks again, I really think I wouldn't have come this far without your plan.
- Robert Wickham, 1st September 2017 -
Phil, I just want to thank you, I started a two months intermediate Olympic Distance Training plan of yours. I àm amazed of how a structured routine and design could help on my results and performance. I race this past sunday in the Hombramaya race, in Guatemala, (1k swim, 35k bike, 6k run) finishing in 2:08:00! Six months ago I race the same distance in 2:30:00.
- Rodrigo Valdés, 18th July 2017 -
Phil, I am very happy with the results I got from your plan. 1st in my age bracket!
Thank you for all your help and knowledge.
- Bento Lira, Punisher Sprint Triathlon, June 25th 2017 -
Having taken up swimming, biking and running 15 months ago at the tender age of 41, I’ve followed several of your training plans and really do enjoy them. I’ve since done 4 sprint triathlons and made continual progress at each one. Last Sunday was the first time I’ve repeated a race and was really pleased to see my time come down from 1:37 last year to 1:27 this year for a 400m / 24km / 5km.
- Jason James, 23rd June 2017 -
I wanted to thank you, on behalf of my husband. He completed his first ever half Ironman event a few weeks ago; it was his first ever open water swim too.
He has been following a Training Peaks program you designed and, being a business owner and father to two small children, he doesn't have time to think about training - he has just done what you say.
He came 4th overall at the Marshman event. He learnt a huge amount about triathlons too. He was first in his age group and had the fastest bike leg.
Anyway, we wanted to say thank you. Without your guidance, he wouldn't have achieved this so well.
- Gemma (on behalf of Nick Collins), 20th June 2017 -
Hi Coach Mosley. My race (5th triathlon) took place today and I improved by over 4 minutes from last year's race (1st triathlon). The highlight for me was the bike portion were I was was 1.7 mph faster on average compared to last year (22.9 vs 21.2). Thank you for your help and I look forward to working together again.
- Jay Gardner, 18th June 2017 -
Hello Phil, I just wanted to say once again thanks a million for your support and precious advice.I managed to finish my first Ironman in 13:46:16. I still can't believe I did it. It has been a wonderful experience.
Your training plan has been outstanding. I have pain nowhere, you won't believe but the only issue I am suffering is my back burned from the sun.
Once again thank you so much for guiding me to another successful experience in triathlon, wish you all the success you deserve in your career as triathlon coach.
- Giordano Mastrocinque, 13th June 2017 -
Hi Philip, yesterday was my big day at Ironman 70.3 Rapperswil. I followed your plan and it was just great! Many thanks for this. Next Plan will be 100% from you!!
- Martin Von Matt, 13th June 2017 -
I want to thank you for the training plan, with which I improved the time at the distance of Ironman 70.3 by 20 minutes to 4:49:02. Also, under the guidance of your plans, three of my friends have improved their time.
- Alexey Eroshenko, 6th June 2017 -
Good afternoon sir, just a quick note to say that I enjoyed your training plan and that I used it to do 2017 Ironman Lanzarote successfully.
-May 29th 2017, Coach "T", Momar Talla N'diaye,

I am doing my first triathlon this year and I signed up for your 12 week beginner training plan. I’ve really enjoyed it and having previously tried another plan (for cycling) I really like your style and feel that I have a virtual coach at my side during training. After I do my first sprint triathlon next week I’d like to sign up for another plan.
Thanks and let me know if you’re ever in Bali.
- Toby Garritt, Bali, May 2017 -
I just thought I'd let you know that using your schedule, I managed to qualify for the World Duathlon Champs in Canada in Aug. To say I was pleased would be an understatement!
- Robert Wickham, UK, May 2017-
I did 06:19:14 for my first ever Ironman 70.3 which I’m very proud of since this time last year I was sitting around not doing anything, didn’t own a bike, and I hadn’t ever swam a lap in a pool. My wife, kids and dad came to the race and are SO PROUD. I gave your plan a 5 star rating on Training Peaks.
- Kevin Kelly, April 2017, Ironman 70.3 Florida -
Had an awesome day...finished Ironman 70.3 Dubai in 4:54h on a very windy day. I'm very chuffed and can't credit your coaching enough for getting me to this point...
just amazing how far you've taken me so quickly!
- Saif Al Assam, Jan 2017 Ironman 70.3 Dubai -
You have definitely had a positive impact on my triathlon journey and helped me realise that a coach is the most essential piece of the puzzle.

Phil, just some feedback for you about my training for Ironman Louisville. Just completed the half marathon today at 1h40min - 3min quicker than my prior PR from May! Thanks.
- Alex, 24th Sept 2016 -
Thanks again for all your support Phil. You have really changed my results and attitude for the better and I am still amazed that I am now at a point where I feel comfortable being in a race at a world championship, looking forwards rather than just trying to avoid being last!
- 20th Sept 2016, Richard Lonsdale -
I just wanted to thank you for the 12 week training plan. I used it [almost] religiously for my first Ironman 70.3 in Luxembourg a week ago. The training was virtually injury free, nothing a couple of massages and a good bone cracking didn’t cure and on race day I felt strong and ready. Thank you for sharing your invaluable knowledge, I really don’t think I could have trained and raced so happily without it.
- Cherry Campbell, 27th June 2016,
Ironman 70.3 Luxembourg -
Let me express my deepest gratitude for guiding me through one of your training plans towards the successful completion of my first IM 70.3 last weekend in Luxembourg. I did 05:44:11 with a big smile on my face at the finish line and ZERO pain in my muscles!!!
- Giordano Mastrocinque, 23rd June 2016,
Ironman 70.3 Luxembourg -
The nutrition plan was spot-on, the pacing plan was spot-on and the training was spot-on. I would never have gone under 5 hours otherwise and it feels great to unlock my potential. Cheers to the best coach there is! Very lucky to work with you :-)
-Saif Al Assam, Feb 2016,

Thanks for all the support and guidance. Whatever happens at the World Championships, I have really enjoyed this season. I am British Champion and I am in better shape than I could ever have hoped if I had just muddled along with my old regime.

"I'm delighted with how the season has gone. I'm thrilled with how far I have come and excited about how much further I can go. I feel that I have moved from "age grouper" to "serious age grouper". Next step is "elite age grouper”. Your triathlon coaching, encouragement and wise counsel has been invaluable and I know that I would not have had anything like the season if I wasn't working with you."

"The training worked extremely well. I never felt in trouble on any of the stages. There were no bad days for me. I think we got the numbers and training right particularly as I was able to ride like this day after day."

"I have been using your training plans for triathlon training and found your website so I could find a way to say THANK YOU!! The one I used to train for my second Olympic this summer was amazing. I fell in love with heart rate training and the intervals in your plans -- it made a HUGE difference both mentally and physically. Not only was I faster and enjoyed the training workouts more, but my average HR during the race dropped by 20 BPM which to me was huge. Your training plan helped me get a PR by over an hour in my second Olympic (did the same course 2013 and 2015). Now I'm feeling confident enough to try my first Ironman 70.3"
