Clients Who’ve Used Our IRONMAN® Distance Training Plans:

You helped me with my first IM last year in CDA. What makes your training plans unique is your timely follow up and insights you provided via email and online resources. I didn’t just get workouts; I got an experienced coach to help me through the process. What an experience and achievement I will never forget. Thank you for all the support and advice.

Drew Coleman

IRONMAN Coeur d'Alene

Just a quick note of thanks to all if you at ENDURANCEWORKS.  I used one of your plans last year to prepare for my second Ironman Arizona and it was perfect!  Improved my time over 2011 by an hour and four minutes.

Jon Meyers

IRONMAN Louisville

Ironman Florida was last Saturday. The conditions were harsh, cold and windy. The swim was cancelled. Just in case you are wondering, your schedule got me a second place podium finish. I felt well trained. Thank you!

Gail Lohman


This summer, at the age of 40, I finished my first full course Ironman, Ironman Lake Placid. This once inconceivable accomplishment was made possible by the tremendous and dedicated efforts of Coach Glover.

Tom Impellitteri

IRONMAN Lake Placid

Wow, really hard, long race. I guess they don’t call it an iron distance for nothing. So…. overall and in hindsight… I felt well prepared for my first full Ironman. I have never swum, biked or run those distances before (aside from running a marathon in ’98). I was steady during the swim, my legs were good on the bike and most surprisingly, my legs were good on the run. Thank you so much for helping me to achieve this goal!!!

Ronni Robinson

Challenge Atlantic City

Well, I am an Ironman! What an amazing and fulfilling experience. My family was there the whole time. Some pictures they captured I could do without! Anyway, thank you for your very workable training plans. You help build this middle age grouper into being able to complete two 70.3’s and a full 140.6 Ironman all in one year.

Tom Williams


I entered my first Ironman six months out from the event. Initially I was like a ship without a rudder and had no idea where I was going. Then I found a training plan on and the path became clear. Each session had a clear purpose and the plan provided a sense of accountability. Throughout my journey, David was very prompt in answering any questions I had via e-mail. He offered a great range of online videos which really helped too. I crossed the finish line of my first IM in just over 11 hours. Thanks for all your help, David!!!

Ben Graham

IRONMAN Melbourne

I just wanted to say thank you for the 24 week novice training plan I used for IM Texas this year. It was my first full distance and so I was jumping into the unknown in many ways, but ended up having a really good day (12hrs 1min) despite the heat and challenges that came with that. I found the plan really worked well with my schedule and time available and was really easy to follow and stay consistent.

Mike Threadgould


Just wanted to let you know IM Louisville was on Sunday and I am an Ironman! I could not have done it without you. Your training plan prepared me and still left me time for my full time job and my family. I owe you big time, brother.

Russ Hanson

IRONMAN Louisville

Just a quick follow up thank you. Earlier this year, I purchased a training plan from you for the Busselton Ironman. Your plan & resources were a great help. My Busselton Ironman time was 10:55 this year – last year was 11:31 – so this was a PR. Anyway thanks again for your plan & help!

Aaron Morgan

IRONMAN Western Australia

Just wanted to say thanks for the training plan.  I finished the Boulder Ironman in 11hrs 41min.  It was so great to just start every week knowing what was on the agenda.  I stuck to almost all the workouts and knew I was prepared when the day came.

Jeff Sherard


When I heard the words from Mike Reilly: ‘Greg Wharton – you are an IRONMAN!!’ I was pumped up and very happy & proud!!! I want to thank you personally. I love your program and what it delivers – RESULTS. The time was never important to me but finishing in 10.26 in my first Ironman was extremely satisfying. Your training plan and its resources are first class. I recommend your plan and endorse it.

Greg Wharton

IRONMAN Melbourne

I just wanted to give you an update on the Lake Placid Ironman. In 2012, using your beginner training plan, I finished in 13:56:23. This was my first full Ironman. This year, using your intermediate training plan and putting in extra time over the winter on the bike, I finished in 12:57:17. I am ecstatic with this much of an improvement at my age (52 in September) considering I only started getting into shape and participating in triathlons 5 years ago now.

Bill DiGilio

IRONMAN Lake Placid

From 12:56 to 11:39!!! Thanks Coach! You program really works! I was just aiming for a 12:30 with a sub-12 (11:56 perhaps) stretch target but this really blew it out of the water. I’ve never done so well and yet the program isn’t as heavy or taxing to my body as my previous ones.

Ivan Fojas

IRONMAN Melbourne

I bought your 24 week training program for Wisconsin. I followed it as close as schedules would permit. I guess I would say I was spot on or did a little more for 95% of the program. This was number 3 for me.  I’m simply writing this to thank you. I finished in 12:47…as a 47 year old male, I was upper mid pack and happy with the results. Best of all, I hit it with confidence and finished with gas in the tank (albeit not too much! )

Cody Miller

IRONMAN Wisconsin

Hi David: Just thought I’d follow up with you on IMMT. I had a successful race at Mont-Tremblant and came in at 12:26. As 12:30 was my goal, I was happy to beat it by 4 minutes. I thought your plan was very helpful and thank you. Have my eye on IM Nice…now that I have some confidence on a hilly bike.

Noel Mackisoc

IRONMAN Mont-Tremblant

I used your training plan for Ironman CdA this year and had a great result. It was my first full Ironman and I finished 11:47!!! So first let me say thank you! The way you lay out your plan really made sense and worked well for me.

Ryan Mummert

IRONMAN Couer d'Alene

It all worked out [after being sick on race week]. On a tough day with lots of ups and downs, I finished Ironman Boulder. Although, not my greatest time, certainly my proudest finish. The training plan was excellent. Thank you!
