Robbie Haywood

Robbie is Director of Coaching at, professional coach, with the last 5 years on deck with Trisutto Head Coach Brett Sutton in many parts of the world, co-hosting camps, and assisting with Trisutto professional athletes. Robbie’s home base is the Sunshine Coast, Australia.



As an amateur athlete my results were unspectacular until I tapped into Trisutto training methods. I had known of Brett for more than a decade before reaching out to him to discuss training. That as they say is history! with the final 4 years of my age group racing the most prolific and result producing. An invitation to coach in early 2012 was the start of working closely with Brett in a coaching capacity that grew into my current role.


My athletic background was in cycling, then weights, then triathlon.  I raced from 1997 – 2012, mainly in Australia, but for 3 years based in Colorado, USA. As an age group athlete I competed in 20 Ironman races including Hawaii Ironman, 40+ Half Ironmans and numerous other shorter triathlons.

A near fatal accident in 2012 ended my period of racing, marking the start of my evolution into full time career coaching. Since then I have coached alongside Brett at pro and age group camps around the world.


A Day in the life

On a daily basis I get to work with our fabulous group of Trisutto coaches, age group and professional athletes.

As the first point of contact for all enquiries at I never know what surprises my day will bring – new training camp locations, mentoring of new Trisutto coaches, welcoming new athletes into the Trisutto family, or assisting our current athletes be the best that they can be.

I spend less time on deck coaching these days, alternating between Trisutto Global HQ in St Moritz, and home on the Sunshine Coast of Australia.

The Art of the Taper

Ready for action. Trackside at our Malaysian training base in Iskander Puteri.  As athletes prepare for their key races, thoughts turn to tapering. What, when and how? Tapers are an individual thing, however one can be guided by the general principle that triathlon of...

Last Summer you gave me the opportunity and the chance to experience what it means to be part of the Trisutto-Team and I had the privilege to meet and train with exceptional athletes and human beings. Thanks also for your kindness and for your support in helping me in my sportive endeavour.

Robbie, thanksgiving approaches here in the U.S., I was just thinking about the people I am thankful for and you’re one of them!  Thank you for your friendship, mentorship, motivation, inspiration, and continued encouragement!  And most importantly, thank you for all that you do to help others work toward and achieve their dreams.  The things you’re doing for the pros and age-groupers alike on the TriSutto squad is truly fantastic!

Dr Stephanie Hightower

It has been a transformational experience. My swimming personal best time has improved by full five minutes over the course of the summer. Now I feel like Superman moving through the water. Besides the whole team is very professional and also good fun. I will definitely return for more tough love with Robbie and Brett!
