Description of Dan Mcintosh

Dan has over 14 years of triathlon and coaching experience. After completing his first race in 2001, an experience in which he 'nearly drowned' as Dan puts it, he was back in 2002 with a much improved effort and a resolution to compete at the Olympics and Kona after he was done with his studies. With a Graduate degree in engineering, a very busy Dan in his career before turning pro would coach a youth soccer team, join the CU triathlon team, qualify to race Kona and climb Mt McKinley. In 2010, Dan's first year as a professional athlete he managed 5 wins and 5 podium finishes. At his first ITU event, earned 4th place and opportunity to join USAT development program. During this time Dan also opened a gym in Denver CO, and coached triathlon as well as a youth and masters swim team. Dan always played a role into the founding of LifeTime Fitness Triathlon Training Program. In early 2012 Dan began his tenure as development athlete and coach with Brett Sutton and the Trisutto.com team. After overcoming a serious injury after being hit by a car while training, Dan went on to record wins and podiums including 3 top 10 finishes in Ironman distance events before 2014. He he has now returned to ITU racing in his focus for the Olympics. Dan's coaching philosophy prioritizes individual attention, and delivers this through online communication and in person training sessions. Athletes are invited to train a few days or weeks with Dan. In addition to traveling for races, he splits his training base between Cozumel, San Diego, Boulder and St. Moritz.

What have you achieved in your coaching career?

An appreciation for the losses as much as the wins.

Why do you work with Trisutto?

As a relatively late starter to triathlon with no swim background, I had to learn the hard way and have a deep empathy for beginner triathletes and anyone that struggles with their swim. My most succesful years as an athlete and coach have come while working under Brett Sutton and the Trisutto.com team. My coaching philosophy is based on giving 100% as a coach in return for 100% from the athlete. The objective is to achieve whatever my athlete’s goals are and working with them to ensure training and racing are always focused around their objectives.

With his careful and progressive application of varied work and rest, Dan had me racing my first injury-free 70.3 within a few months with a 20 minute PR. He's an excellent teacher, motivator, and task master depending on the situation at hand. We can discuss the merits of different approaches and try novel things to solve challenges that arise when trying to meet new goals. His goals for me are often much higher than my own! Dan keeps me working and believing that I can accomplish more than I thought possible.

I have only just started working with Dan, but as a result of the change in training load application, I am feeling fitter and more ready then in previous years. I have learned that I can actually "race" the longer distances now versus, just completing the distance. This has given me the needed confidence to go out and aim for the podium any time I race.
