Our Coaches

Rob Dallimore, BHSc (Pod.)

Rob adopts a number of different techniques to train his athletes and keep them injury free, such as optimizing training zones, monitoring power, pace and heart rate, strength training, nutrition and adequate rest and recovery.  Rob enjoys helping those athletes who are keen to learn.  He works with athletes who want to reach that next level in their performance and who are prepared to look beyond ways that they are used to training to achieve this.  Rob likes getting stuck into the analysis of training and race data files and other metrics (Bike and Run Power, Heart Rate, Pace, Heart Rate Variability etc).
