Summary

Born in 1986 Dan began racing in the Elite ranks in 2011. 

As a youngster he won country and National medals in the 200 & 400 Individual Medley (IM) as well as representing his school on the soccer, rugby, athletics & cross-country teams. In his final year at school he qualified to represent Jersey at the Youth Commonwealth Games in Australia and won Gold in the 400 IM and Silver in the 200 IM.

Dan swam in the Commonwealth Games but the disappointed of finishing 9th inspired him to move over to triathlon.

Dan’s first experience was in short distance races and impressively finished Top10 in his first ETU race and got the Silver medal the World Aquathlon Championships in Budapest.

Inspired by his new coach at Team TBB, Dan moved from short course to Ironman he won his maiden victory at Ironman UK in 2012.

Coaching

Dan was awarded Scholarship to Coventry University and studied Exercise Science

When preparing for an event Dan recommends doing what the coach tells me and get a good nights sleep 2 night out.

His favourite quote is: Cant substitute time out on the roads for anything else

His cycling tip to the cyclists of all levels, get out no matter the conditions.

Dan said he can't do wthout his iPod or water so both are in his transition bag.

I’ve just gone for a swim after another 1-2-1 swim coaching session from Karl and I’m delighted to report that I feel like a completely different swimmer! My swim felt effortless and smooth; the opposite from how it used to feel before I received Karl’s coaching. Karl clearly explained to me the areas in which I needed to improve and gave me exercises and drills to work on. By putting into practice what Karl told me I am seeing a huge difference in my swimming. I recommend Karl to anyone looking to improve their swimming, particularly for triathlons. Will be booking another session to have in a few weeks time.

I have been on many training camps run by Steve Lloyd and have loved each any every one. All have provided a great environment for training hard and having fun. Swimming, running, conditioning and stretching routines are all really good, but it is the biking which is just the best and I am always amazed how quickly my bike fitness and handling improves over a week. Equally importantly, I have a great holiday with good company. I don’t need to look anywhere else for a training camp.

I had a great time living full-time triathlete life for a week! The camp was very technique focussed, varied, and adapted to different levels. The hotel is in a great location, with safe storage for bikes and plenty of good food. Definitely a must for any triathlete looking to build technique and fitness before the season!

A great training camp, for me, is a blend of environment, coaching and company. This one works for me, and I am re-booking. There are choices out there, many also good, but when you get that mix just right, well, it works, so you go back. Big year next year and this will help greatly.

These training camps have enhanced my love for triathlon and provided me with amazing skills, training, friendships and experiences which I can walk away from the camps knowing I’ve had an amazing time and looking to when I can go again. Excellent coaching which aims to emphasise having fun while completing the training is perfect for these training camps. Some of my best memories from the sport are from these camps, I cannot recommend them enough.
