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.
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!
Since then I’ve completed various distances at triathlon including Ironman 70.3 Wold Champions in Chattanooga 2017 and Ironman Lanzarote. I love middle and long distance triathlon!
I hold a degree in Sports and Exercise Rehabilitation as well as Personal Training qualification and have been working in sports for many 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 to give something back so I qualified as a Level 2 Triathlon coach.
I joined HTC in June 2013 and have had the best support and made great friends here! The club is super friendly and open to everyone!
