Train.

I love it!

I love to train and make my body even stronger. This is possible by training on the SUP in the right way. But I also look at how I can improve myself even more through other sports, nutrition and rest. As the ultimate test to see if I have succeeded in making my body even stronger, I use the NON-STOP SUP 11 City Tour. That is more than 200km and takes between 24 and 32 hours. It is not a competition against others. It’s a competition with yourself. And the only reason for me to participate is to see if I have improved myself.

And I did improve myself. Winning 4 times out of 5, breaking course record after course record and taking the 24 hour SUP World Record. And I was not on an 18ft unlimited like the previous word records, I was on an 14ft. For more check my curriculum vitae.

All those training hours, competitions, training sessions I’ve given and articles I’ve read give me a lot of know-how… Which I’m happy to share with you. I already do that during my weekly SUP Training and SUP Clinics. But for those who want extra guidelines I offer this coaching platform.

 

For whom

As a coach I want to help everyone who wants to get better. Getting better means:

  • Getting healthier. Next to ‘fun’ the most important reason we do sport. Two reasons we should never forget.
  • Paddle easier
  • Paddle longer distances
  • Paddle faster
  • Do competitions
  • Participate at the 11 City SUP  (1 day/ 2 days/ 5 days/ non-stop)
  • For people who want an extra training stimulus

 

Why

A training schedule provides structure in your training so that you can work well towards your goal. It gives you something to hold on to and works as a big stick. At times when you don’t know what to do and don’t feel like it for a while, it helps you further

What we do

We always start with setting achievable goals. This has to do with your SUP history, work, family, social life etc. I make a training schedule that works towards those goals but fits into your lifestyle. Hey, we’re not pros!! In that schedule we take into account your preferences and other obligations. Of course most of the workouts are on the SUP, but we can use every sport to improve ourselves. If you love to go running or biking we use that for variety. Gym, surfing, roller skating… everything is possible. The main thing is that it is fun to do a workout. There are two training programs to choose from:

I know what it is to combine work, family and training. I know that you have to work hard if you have high goals. A structured plan really helps you to achieve your goal and that makes you a much stronger person in the end. Let me help you to achieve your personal goals.

  • Info on sleep, food and drink in general.
  • Info on food, drinks, tactics and strategy for a race or tour.

What I expect from you

  • All training is done with a GPS watch and chest heart rate strap
  • You upload your training to Strava
  • Every two or four weeks you email me the comments about how the training went. This way I can make the new schedule again.

I like to work on long term goals. I think goals that have to be achieved within 4 months are too short. I’d much rather work with someone on a goal that’s still 10 months or more away. Then we can really achieve something!
