The Triathlon coach who will actually help you with your swim!

With a life full of swimming experiences and coaching excellence, Coach Dave can explain and address the essentials for any level of swimmer.  Having a clearer understanding of the challenges that the aquatic environment presents goes a very long way in helping each athlete navigate these unique demands.

If you’re an athlete that is new to the swim or has struggled with it or has been dismissed to “just go train with a masters team”, then it is critical that your education start here.

For over 2 decades, Coach Dave Dornaus has aimed to provide the highest quality coaching relationship with his athletes.  While primarily an advocate for aquatic success, his extensive list of athletic achievements has garnered a special sense of belonging and connection from athletes in the multisport world and those single sport focused athletes as well.

Actions speak louder than words, so scroll through the photo albums to see his demonstrated experience!   You can see him working with elite athletes at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs to Ironman Triathlons (including Kona), RAAM, Mount Washington, Mont Ventoux, Xterra (including Maui), Open Water Swims, Charity involvement, Everesting, Leadville, Marathons and of course some fun personal photos!
