DA ENDURANCE Triathlon and Multisport Coaching


DA_Final-04 Coaching

Dougal is at the top of his game in the endurance sport world with multiple Iron-distance triathlon victories and Ironman 70.3 podium finishes as well as an impressive array of victories in multisport, Xterra and adventure racing events around the world. He also has a tendency to break bike stage records more often than not. Alongside his personal experiences as an elite athlete, Dougal boasts a first class honours degree in Physical Education. His combination of practical and theoretical knowledge coupled with his passion for helping prepare athletes for their own race related goals makes him the complete coaching package.

If you have a race you plan to attend and you want to perform as best as you can, you can choose from one of two coaching options with Dougal. For those less reliant on constant coaching involvement but appreciative of the need to have a program built around their work, family and social life which aims to extract the best possible race day performance, the Essential Programming option would suit best. With the Complete Coaching product you are provided with continued, direct and unlimited access to Dougal to compliment your individualised training program set-up through Training Peaks. See below for more details on each coaching package:

Essential Programming

Your Essential Programming option is perfect for those who prefer the flexibility to fit key training sessions around a busy lifestyle. Dougal begins the planning process by understanding your lifestyle in its entirety because he knows an effective program must first have the ability to fit within the time and energy you have available. The periodised training program will be written from scratch and will be sent in its entirety (from the agreed start date until race day) with the opportunity to have continued interaction with Dougal along the way. With the Essential Programming product comes the reassurance that your time spent training will maximise the purpose and greater significance of each individual session.

Complete Coaching – Limited spaces available 

The Complete Coaching option is a premium coaching package for those who are fully focused on optimising their training approach to the big event(s). If you are serious about your goals and want a coach that cares as much about you reaching them as you do, then this is your coaching option. By choosing Dougal as your coach and enrolling in one of the limited Complete Coaching options you will have the confidence that your training is consistently targeted towards your key event(s) and the plan will evolve alongside you. A program may be modified to off-set injury risk or to accelerate with fitness progressions and Dougal will have daily oversight of every training session you do. To leave no stone left unturned in your pursuit to perform, choose the Complete Coaching package.

It was a long held dream of mine to complete a full distance triathlon. I achieved this at Ironman NZ 2017. I had spent the previous 9 months training under the guidance of my incomparable coach Dougal Allan of DA Endurance Coaching and he was the key component of me achieving this goal.

Dougal took me on as a complete newbie and got me to the start line in the shape of my life and over 20kg lighter! I felt strong, fit, knowledgable and well prepared for the day – everything a novice IM athlete could ask for from his coach!

For anybody that wants to achieve a goal like IMNZ, commit to having a professional coach like Dougal and be amazed at the results that will follow. I can’t thank Dougal enough for his expertise. I am excited to team up again for my next big challenge in 2018!
