We are a team of real-world people, from all over New Zealand, taking on Ironman and Half IM challenges.

Mr Smith's Online IronTeam gives you the benefits of a coach, at a fraction of the price. Here's how it works:

Choose from a range of training plans

Training plans are delivered online:

  • Train using the same plans as Wellington IronTeam, or select from a range of our other training plans

Choose a level to suit your goal:

  • Complete: Successfully finish the event inside cutoff times
  • Challenge: Aiming for a mid-pack finish
  • Perform: Aiming to finish in the top 1/4 of the field

Plus every plan includes:

  • Specific daily workouts that can be done by heart rate, cycling power, running pace, and perceived effort
  • High and low volume options, to suit people with different time availability
  • Tuesday 6pm indoor trainer sessions (from home)

Coach & team support

We run a private Facebook Group so everyone can stay connected. Support is available via:

  • Ask a question during Tuesday indoor trainer sessions
  • Ask questions in our Facebook Group
  • Team video calls every 2-4 weeks
  • Individual coach consultations (additional fee)
There are plenty of squaddies who have been in the team for a long time and are happy to share ideas, advice, and experience.

Team resources

Use our library of resources at any time:

  • Race planning & nutrition guides
  • Articles, videos, podcasts, links
  • Technique, skills, equipment
  • How to get the best out of your technology

You can access these at any time, plus Gerrard will share these resources at relevant times of the season.

Group Training

Optional training camps where you get to train and recover like a pro, while our support team takes care of the meals and logistics. There are training options to suit everyone on camp.

I recommended Mr Smith's IronTeam as a squad for everyone. Gerrard understands real world problems like balancing work, family, injuries and plans accordingly. 

I really enjoyed meeting and training with similar minded people from all walks of life. No egos but plenty of smack talk! Thanks Mr Smith and the crew.
