Driven Endurance is run by Robert Dao. Robert is a recent graduate of Texas A&M University with an Bachelor’s degree in Applied Exercise Physiology. During his time in school, Robert spent 4 years competing for the Texas A&M Triathlon Team, serving as the team president for the 2012-13 school year. During that time, he developed a love for coaching and helping other athletes become successful through his own racing experience and background in exercise physiology. In recent years, he has spent time coaching the Texas A&M Triathlon team swimming and cycling workouts as well as coaching the local youth triathlon team in College Station. Robert is still actively competing in triathlon, running, and road cycling on a regular basis.
Robert’s coaching style takes into consideration the underlying factors that help athletes achieve their goals. This often takes the form of working just as hard at mechanics and race related skills as completing actual workouts. With his background in exercise physiology, Robert knows how to have the right mix of quality workout mixed with volume and the right amount of recovery in order to focus on having the right workouts at the right time to maximize the body’s ability to perform at its highest potential!
