Coach Profile: Mat O'Halloran

Originally from Canada, I've been living overseas for more than a decade. I'm the current head coach of The TriClub Doha in Qatar, with 400+ members, & coach online athletes of various abilities around the globe. I still compete sparsely to stay active & in touch with what I preach. My coaching approach is pragmatic, progressive & individualized. I emphasize that my athletes don't follow my programs - but rather, my programs follow my athletes, according to their objectives, physiology, psychology, & feedback.


Description of Mat O'Halloran

I started triathlon in the fall of 2000 after being inspired by Simon Whitfield’s victory at the Sydney Olympics & Peter Reid’s win in @ The Kona Ironman World Championships a month later. I have been living & breathing triathlon ever since. I come from a strong swimming background, with The Island Swimming Club in Victoria, British-Columbia. During this period, I trained regularly with eventual 2 X Olympic Medalist (1500m freestyle) Ryan Cochrane.

I was a resident athlete @ The PacificSport Canadian National Triathlon Center for 4 years. As well to representing Canada @ 3 Junior Elite World Championships. I then spend 6 months training @ The High Altitude Training Center in the Kenyan village of Iten, with some of the top runners/coaches in the world. Soon after, I turned pro with TeamTBB & achieved top 5 performances in officially sanctioned  ITU, 5i50, 70.3 & Ironman events. The highlights were winning an ITU Long Distance World Cup, being ranked 14th in the world in the ITU Long Distance rankings @ the end of 2008, & finishing 2nd @ the Laguna Phuket Triathlon (The Race of Legends) to the then reigning Olympic Champion, as well to future Ironman World Champion, & world record holder, Jan Frodeno.

I started coaching in 2009, & have been doing it full-time since 2013. I've trained various corporate age group teams for on-going years, as well to an elite development team for 4 years that was sponsored by Alaska Milk Corporation, & National Team athletes for the Philippines & Indonesia. Then over the years, I have organized, promote, hosted or co-hosted training camps in Spain, South Korea, The Philippines, & Malaysia.

Performance aside, I work with numerous age groupers who are simply looking to live a healthier lifestyle, stay injury free, enjoy the process/races or even follow a walk/run program. I believe that the greatest positive aspect of triathlon is that almost anybody can do it, and into very late adulthood!

I use the online training software Addaero to organize my athlete's day-to-day schedule & Garmin Connect to monitor their activities. I'm also a regular user of bio-feedback for swimming - cycling - running. As well to enjoying discussing a simple, healthy, & logical approach to general/sports nutrition.

What have you achieved in your coaching career?

-Qualified Elite athletes to The Asian Games, Asian Beach Games & South East Asian Games from The Philippines or Indonesia. -2014 AsiaTri Coach of The Year. -12 Kona IM World Championships Qualifications. -11 Elite National Champions (Off road – Short Course – Long Course) from The Philippines or South Africa. -Top 10 elite or junior elite athletes @ The Asian Games, Asian Triathlon Championships & Asian Duathlon Championships. -3 Boston Marathon qualifiers.

Why do you work with Trisutto?

I trained under head coach Brett Sutton as a pro triathlete between 2007 & 2013. His training philosophies are a major component of my coaching approach. As well to what I learned while training/living during multiple/extended training camps with top triathletes/duathletes, that included ITU, Ironman, World, & Olympic Champion athletes.

Couldn't be happier that I chose Coach Mat. We've only been working together for the past three months and I've already seen tremendous improvements in fitness and overall health. The PRs have been the icing on the cake! Thanks, Coach. I can't wait to see what the new year brings.
