Description of Declan Doyle
Declan as an athlete learned to swim to do the sport of triathlon and worked his way from the back of the pack (where he was always the one hanging onto the canoe for dear life!), to the pointy end of world age group racing. As as a coach, this experience has helped him be particularly empathic towards the less gifted of us, particularly in the water. Through many years of experimentation, involving seeking out anyone who would listen to him. One of those people was Brett Sutton.
Brett tore back all the nonsense around the sport revealing it to be a balancing act between the constraints of life, your own ability and how hard you are willing to work. He credits this experience as the cornerstone of his own coaching philosophy. He relishes the opportunity to impart the lessons of his own journey through the sport and relishes working in a sport that rewards hard work over talent... He has gone full circle from chasing every gadget for the "magic bullet" that would make him faster right back to keeping everything as simple, basic and as holistic as possible.
He has worked with Brett both directly and indirectly for many years and credits this relationship for instilling the knowledge and desire to be the best the coach one can be.
Why do you work with Trisutto?
I love being able to help people get to somewhere they either hoped to be or did not believe they could be.
