Coaching


Are you an atlete eager to test your limits?DS1-Start-finish-line

Do you want maximal effect out of your limited training time?

Do you want a training schedule based on the latest scientific insights rather than the latest media hype?

Would you want a coach who knows what is like to train and race hard, to win and to loose? A coach that also knows what it is like to combine a full-time job and lots of training hours with a life outside of sports?

If you answer any of these questions with yes, then I suggest you read on. Perhaps I can help you to the next level in your training and racing.

 

To get faster, or go further, you need to know your limits. And then crush them. Perhaps you need to work on your endurance, or the capacity to run, bike or swim fast for long periods. But your limits might not only be physiological. Adequate nutrition, a strong race mentality and a training schedule that really works for you are essential stones in the road to success.

Having a PhD in exercise physiology, I only use training methods that have been proven to work. I am on top of the most recent scientific developments, but I won’t implement a media hype that has no scientific ground to stand on. As your coach, I continuously analyse your strengths and weaknesses, at all levels, to see where you can improve. That includes analysis of training and test data, monitoring your progression by frequent field tests, and of course adequate adjustment of your schedule based on what I find. We will also work on your race mentality and if necessary, I can analyse your nutritional needs to make sure you have the energy for all training.

Coaching is not just for elite athletes. In contrast, much can be gained by starting your racing career the right way immediately. And if you are already experienced and have come to a plateau in your achievements, then a fresh look on your training schedule can do miracles.

Finally, I have more than 10 years of racing experience on an international level. I know what it is to be a time-crunched athlete. I know what it is to win, to fail, to cross that finish line after all hours of hard work. And I am dedicated to getting you there as well.

Interested in crossing your borders? Contact me and I would be happy to explain what I can do for you.
