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 attended the TriTraining Harder training camps a couple of times some years ago, and since then I have used their training plans to work my way through the different distances of triathlon and completed the full distance for the first time this weekend in Tallin. As a newcomer to triathlon the camps provided the perfect introduction to triathlon and have set me up me with all of the fundamental elements that I have applied to my training over the past four years. The online plans you have prepared have also been excellent, they are easy to follow and have got me to the start (and finish) line in the best shape I have ever been in and enabled me to exceed my own expectations. I feel very fortunate that when I started this journey that I choose the Tri Training Harder training camps and plans. Now it is time for a short break after which I will be looking at races for next year and will be looking at using the personalized coaching that they offer

Where do I start? My trip to Rioja in Oct 2019 is reaping rewards with my running. Prior to this hol I was only able to run 5km without stopping. During the holiday I managed up to 9 miles with only rehydration stops!! It was fab. I was the sole singleton but everybody was welcoming and made me feel part of the group.Abby and Chris were great hosts and coaches. Approachable and encouraging. So kind and patient and gently pushing to achieve potential. Scenery was amazing. Accommodation was lovely and comfortable.Abby's homemade cuisine was certainly a highlight too.The mix of runs and vineyard visits/ leisure time were a highlight. I lost a few pounds despite the food and freely flowing wine!It doesn't matter if you are a ???? or a ???? this trip is well worth it. Take the plunge and you will return refreshed and reinvigorated like me!

Just finished a six week swimming course with Karen, I can highly recommended her. She helped enormously with my swimming techniques or lack of I should say. I feel now that with all of the things that she has thought me I can put into place and improve as a swimmer. I have even discussed going back to do more classes to help with both my husbands swimming and my own Thank you
