Daniel Jones and Dougal Allan | DA ENDURANCE COACHES


Dougal is at the top of his game in the endurance sport world.

Dougal Allan brings to his coaching role an Honours degree in Physical Education and is constantly upskilling his vast range of knowledge keeping himself totally up to date. Dougal is one of the most sort after endurance coaches in New Zealand and around the world. His combination of practical and theoretical knowledge coupled with his passion for helping prepare athletes for their own race related goals makes him the complete coaching package.

Dan Jones is an all rounder in the endurance sports space.

After five years of intense NCAA XC and Track Running in the United States, he has returned to his roots in New Zealand to pursue his long distance racing goals in the fields of multi-sport and distance running. The knowledge obtained through a life immersed in the world of running and multisport/adventure racing, the desire to help people reach their full potential and the ongoing mentor-ship from Dougal are all elements that contribute to a style of coaching that prescribes athletic success.



$90.00 per week 

The Complete Coaching option is a premium coaching package for those who are fully focused on optimising their training approach to the big event(s). If you are serious about your goals and want a coach that cares as much about you reaching them as you do, then this is your coaching option. By choosing a DA Endurance coach and enrolling in one of the limited Complete Coaching options you will have the confidence that your training is consistently targeted towards your key event(s) and the plan will evolve alongside you. A program may be modified to off-set injury risk or to accelerate with fitness progressions and your coach will have daily oversight of every training session you do. To leave no stone left unturned in your pursuit to perform, choose the Complete Coaching package.


$399 | 12 week program

Your Essential Programming option is perfect for those who prefer the flexibility to fit key training sessions around a busy lifestyle. Your coach begins the planning process by understanding your lifestyle in its entirety because he knows an effective program must first have the ability to fit within the time and energy you have available. The periodised training program will be written from scratch and will be sent in its entirety (from the agreed start date until race day) with the opportunity to have continued interaction with Dougal or Dan along the way. With the Essential Programming product comes the reassurance that your time spent training will maximise the purpose and greater significance of each individual session.
