I really enjoy the training plans I get through from Matt, they follow a logical pattern and are achievable.  Matt is good at accommodating my fixed activities such as swim club sessions and gym classes as well as flexing the plan to allow for the races and sportives I wish to do.  This allows me to be on an individualised plan to achieve my chosen goal of Ironman Austria 2015, but still enjoy and be motivated by training with other people.  Finally Matt has been an excellent source of support and reassurance during periods of illness and injury and this has helped me to recuperate properly, whilst still confident I can compete at my A race.
