Description of Dan Mcintosh
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.08 Jun 17
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.14 Aug 17
