Paul helped me prepare for the Ironman 70.3 of 2019 in Luxembourg.
The year before I trained independently for 1/8 and 1/4 triathlons. My biggest problem is that I regularly went too far. I trained too much, too hard and also inefficiently (a waste of time). Paul helped me with a well-considered, smart and yet ambitious schedule (with regular tests to measure progress).

What else do I appreciate about Paul?

He is easily accessible for questions. He is flexible, adjusts the schedules when necessary (very important for me, with a busy and sometimes stressful job, business trips).

Paul gives support when you need it, for example if you just don’t feel like it anymore (that will certainly happen). In the end, he was even present at the race to help with the preparation and with support from the sidelines.

Paul also has a good network of people around him that you can use (for example for a bike fitting). And what is perhaps the best part – he coaches many athletes. You will get to know these other athletes gradually. You share your developments and race results with each other, sometimes you train together (especially swimming in open water) or you go to a race together. So you also learn from each other (and you can sometimes compare yourself to Paul, if he is strict).

The Ironman 70.3 went well – I felt strong, fresh and enjoyed it. Now working with him on preparing for new races (especially working on my weaknesses).
