Coach Dan

My Background 

I started my coaching career as a swim coach back in 2008 and officially launched TTR in 2016. I’ve had a lot of great mentors, the one who made the greatest impact on me was coach Steve who I served as an assistant swim coach to for two years in 2012-2013. He was the first coach I ever worked with who focused on personal improvement above everything else and his methods have become key components of the TTR program. 

I am very grateful to have been coached by and race on the HFP program led by Shannon Kurek in the midwest. He is a legendary race director and a pioneer in the multi-sport community and puts on my favorite race called The American Triple-T which is 4 triathlons in 3 days. He taught me training plans should be easy to follow and his coaching approach is very similar to the structure I see in many athletes I’ve spoken to who have been coached by Dave Scott.
