The Coach

Head Coach: Toby Hanson

Toby has been a swimmer and triathlete for over two decades and has competed in National, European and World Championships.

After falling in love with ocean swimming while living in New Zealand he has focused the past 10 years racing open water swimming and Ironman distance triathlons, competing in major races across Europe and Australasia.

Toby gained his ASA Level 2 swim coaching in 2004 shortly followed by a BSc in Exercise Science in 2006 specialising in Physiology, Exercise Programming and Conditioning. Toby has coached swimmers and triathletes across a variety of ability levels, from learning to swim to helping them race in their first open water event, mastering their first triathlon and finishing their first Ironman.

Toby started Stroke and Cadence to not only help others to improve their stroke technique, performance and enjoyment in the water, but also to share his passion for swimming, fitness and getting outdoors.
