Dave Zimmet

QT2 Level 1 Coach


Coach Name: Dave Zimmet

Hometown: Rochester, NY

Where Dave Grew Up: On the north shore of Long Island

Education: Bachelor of Science

Background: Dave grew up competing a mix of team sports and martial arts throughout his school years. After college, Dave found his way into mountain biking, focusing on 24-hour solo racing for a few years. Shortly after that he tried running some marathons and then started racing long course triathlons. After a few years of self-coaching and working off of generic training plans, Dave hit a significant plateau, and so decided to hire a coach.  

After a short time training with QT2 Systems Dave hit several of his multisport goals and has managed to consistently finish in the top-10 of his age group, consistently qualifying for the Ironman World Championships.  

Dave believes that helping athletes to focus on things like proper nutrition and recovery, following a proven protocol, and knowing how to pace and fuel an event, will significantly improve their triathlon performance and help them to reach their goals. 

Coaching Experience: 3 years coaching with QT2 

Athletic Highlights: Beat Super Mario Brothers using only his toes (no warps) and a 4 x Kona finisher

Why work with QT2 Systems: After seeing the results for himself, he became a big believer in QT2’s training methodology.
