  • Dan-Weekes

    Daniel Weekes

    Level 1 Development Triathlon Coach

    Dan (Weekesy) comes from a swimming and cycling background, having started club swimming at the age of 11. He went on to compete at home town, university and county level in both swimming and water polo in England. He has also ridden bikes his whole life: BMX, mountain bikes, road and time trial. His focus turned to triathlon in 2008 and he raced for 8 years, notably with five appearances in Age Group World Championships at Olympic Distance and 70.3. As a swimmer with zero running experience before moving to Australia at 33, Dan knows first-hand what it takes to turn an athlete into a runner and prides himself on the small additions to a program that can bring comfort and efficiency to a run gait.

    Weekesy has been coaching since 2016 and focuses strongly on training with heart rate and power zones for ride and run. These bespoke zones are established for each and every athlete, which means training sessions drill right down to where each person should be spending their time. In addition to this pointed approach, Dan provides extra curricular strength and conditioning workouts outside of swim, bike and run which add depth to the athlete’s development and provides a symbiotic approach.
