Rob Dallimore, BHSc (Pod.)
Rob adopts a number of different techniques to train his athletes and keep them injury free, such as optimizing training zones, monitoring power, pace and heart rate, strength training, nutrition and adequate rest and recovery. Rob enjoys helping those athletes who are keen to learn. He works with athletes who want to reach that next level in their performance and who are prepared to look beyond ways that they are used to training to achieve this. Rob likes getting stuck into the analysis of training and race data files and other metrics (Power, Heart Rate, Pace, Heart Rate Variability etc).
Anna’s extensive science background means she has an in depth understanding about how training, nutrition, rest and recovery influence the body. Anna has a particular interest in tailoring training and nutrition to the female athlete using the research from expert exercise physiologist Dr Stacy Sims and her own experience as a guide. At Foot Traffic the aim is to fit the package to the athlete in order to maximise their sporting experience.
Anna is our Multisport/Adventure racing coach. She has come from a background of minimal athletic experience so she is still very much in touch with what it is like to achieve that first 10km run or purchase a bike for the first time. She also works full time, leading to creating some crafty hacks on getting the best training around work hours. Recent performances of note include winning the 2016 2 Day Coast to Coast event, winning the Auckland Multisport Series, 4th in the 2015 Motu Challenge among numerous other Multisport race wins.

Mark really wants to share his knowledge and is looking forward to helping athletes smash their PB’s and achieve their goals.
Dion’s approach to coaching is to tailor the program to the individuals own lifestyle and keep it fun and inspiring.
