Daniel Bingham – Head Coach
Coming from a football background I did my first Triathlon in May 1994, I loved it and didn’t look back, since then I have raced allover Great Britain and around the world. I have as much (If not More) enthusiasm and passion for the sport today as I did when I first started. I have raced over all Triathlon distances, a couple of highlights have been racing for Great Britain at the Triathlon world age-group Championship in Madeira in 2004 and winning my age-group at the Laguna Phuket Triathlon in Thailand. My next goal is to qualify for the Ironman world Championships in Kona Hawaii, it will be tough but I will get there.
The fantastic sport of Triathlon has given me so much and its great to give something back and help other athletes of all abilities on their Triathlon journey. It gives me a real buzz to see members of the club improving, get personal bests in training and racing and achieve their goals. The key to improved performance for me is all about consistency, gradual progression, goal setting, dedication and having lots of determination and passion.
Paul has been working within the fitness industry for 9 years now and he has a diploma in personal training (Dip PT) and is a level 2 triathlon coach, as well as a certified Schwinn Cycling Coach. Paul specialises in sport specific coaching, primarily focusing on swimming, cycling, and running. However, he also works with rowers, kayakers, and has extensive experience in dance and martial arts and the training it involves.
Paul is an active triathlete and enjoys competing in events all across Europe, especially cycle races in the Alps, and has also competed internationally in Taekwondo.
His approach to fitness is well rounded and scientific, as he believes multisport training is a fantastic way of reducing ones risk of injury, as the training is so varied it balances the body incredibly well. Triathlon training suits this mindset perfectly while also creating a competitive stage to measure your ability and improvement.
Paul also likes to put a big emphasis on flexibility work, as this also makes a difference to injury prevention, performance, strength as well as comfort in everyday life.

My career background is the music industry in international marketing and artist management. I decided to make a huge career change at the beginning of 2013 and qualified as a level 3 personal fitness trainer.
I have always been a passionate sports person, club level tennis and squash, until I badly injured my left knee. My rehabilitation took me via the gym, sportive cycling to triathlon and was inspired by Paul Carter in September 2011 to target the 2012 season. In 2015 I completed 3 Ironman 70.3 events, and 4th in the UK for my age group and a Silver Ironman athlete. In 2016, I competed at Ironman Pescara 70.3, Italy and in September, my debut full Ironman in Weymouth.
I am an accredited level 2 triathlon coach and a level 3 personal trainer, having completed courses on movement screening, range of motion and manual muscle testing to help athletes assess muscle imbalance. I am also one of the UK’s first certified Ironman coaches and look forward to coaching athletes of all abilities in endurance events and HTC club members.
My philosophy is, set yourself a goal, train like you mean it, have fun, you are all winners!”
Ordinary people, extraordinary goals!

I have always been a passionate cyclist, an average swimmer and runner. I tried triathlon in 2013 for the 1st time as an experiment at work and got hooked! I’ve done super sprint, sprint and Olympic distance triathlons and getting ready for 2 middle distance triathlons in 2015.Hope to go even longer!
I hold a degree in Sports and Exercise Rehabilitation as well as Personal Training qualification and have been working in sports for 5 years now. You can come to me with bike set up/comfort questions too as I have experience in bike fitting .
During my studies I qualified as an Olympic weightlifting coach – a sport I competed in. I have always enjoyed doing sports, but what I really love is helping others to start, get going and achieve their goals.
I have received so much great coaching through HTC that I decided togive something back. I qualified as a Level 1 Triathlon coach late 2014 and looking forwardto getting my Level 2 soon.
I joined HTC in June 2013 and have had the best support and made great friends here! Theclub is super friendly and open to everyone!
In 2008 Ade decided to start running, he had no previous experience or training but quickly went from his first half marathon to the running his first London Marathon in 2011.
After completing 10 Marathons over 2 years he turned to Triathlon and learnt to swim front crawl. Ade took part in his first sprint distance triathlon race at Eaton Dorney in 2013 and then went onto do his first Ironman (Wales) the following year.
Following this introduction to Ironman, Ade went on complete 5 Ironman full distance races in 2014 as well as keeping up with his Marathons schedule and also taking part as one of the Weekend Warriors at Blenheim undertaking 8 sprint distance races over the events weekend in June.
Ade plans to undertake the same schedule in 2015 and is also lucky enough to be one of 14 UK participants racing in the Norseman Extreme Triathlon this year. Ade is a couple of minutes off breaking 3hrs in the Marathon and hopes to qualify for Kona shortly too.
I have had a chequered sporting background!
I played county level Rugby Union all the way through secondary school but chose to give it up to take up the Korean Martial Art of TaeKwonDo. After 3-4 years of training TaeKwonDo, during which time I won the Student National Championships and was awarded my 1st Dan Black belt, I made the switch to Brazilian Martial Art of Capoeira.
I have been training Capoeira for well over 10 years and am a qualified instructor. I am a keen snowboarder and after injured my knee in a self inflicted snowboarding accident I was recommended swimming as a low impact way to keep exercising.
I had forgotten that I used to swim quite a lot as a kid and really enjoyed getting back into the water. I had been interested in doing triathlons for a while but didn’t have a road bike that I could use. My first triathlon was actually an off road triathlon, which suited me and my heavy mountain bike down to the ground!
I have completed a few Olympic Triathlons but tend to enjoy the Sprint distances more, but this year, however, I will be taking part in my first Half Ironman in Staffordshire, which I’m training hard for and looking forward to it.
Im really looking forward to introducing new people to triathlon in a way that is enjoyable, inclusive and accessible. I have enjoyed the benefit of coaching that I have had throughout my sporting life and have seen how it has helped improve me and the people around me. I hope that I can help people on the way to achieving their goals. It takes a strong will and hard work but should always be fun!
