    • Sports

#006 - Our first Doctor to feature on Athletes: The Other Side, Matt Hanson is a professional triathlete and coach for triathletes, cyclists and runners. 
Hailing from Minnesota, Matt is one of life’s achievers and an Ironman guru. With an extensive background as an athlete, he is a highly-educated figure when it comes to anything sports-related.
As an athlete, he came from the sport of wrestling, yet it is running that has always a been a passion of his. In 2014, his first year as a pro, Matt set 3 run course records and won Ironman Chattanooga (in Tennessee). He has since tallied 10 professional wins, including 3 North American Championship titles. 
Remarkably, this former Professor of Exercise Science also owns the fastest ever time at an Ironman-branded, full distance event (7:39:25) where he also clocked the fastest ever marathon off the bike with a 2:34.
Today, he has his own coaching business for athletes from a plethora of sports, not least cycling, swimming, running and triathlon itself. The business offers customized training strategies that covers nutrition, training strategies, race plans – and anything the modern-day athlete might need in 2020. He does all this from a city of 10,000 people – Storm Lake in Iowa.
