My Own Encounter with Pain Psychology

I have a real interest in the psychology of pain and have written a couple of blogs about it (check them out here and here). Last week I had my own brush with pain psychology that I want to share with you.

At the time I was 6 weeks out from running the Boston marathon and […]

Toploper! Me?!? Schoorl Half Marathon

It wasn’t my intention to write a specific blog on the Schoorl Half marathon. However, I was so pleased about how it went that I thought it deserved its own spot in my blog.

This race was planned in the agenda quite a few months ago. Because I had only done a few weeks of […]

Boston Marathon Training Update

Earlier this month Boston Marathon were showing on Facebook and Instagram that they had already painted the finish line. At the moment I don’t feel the finish line is quite in sight. But training is definitely going well and has included a cross country.

As the year changed to 2017 my training took a turn […]

MAF Training for Boston Marathon

After having made a video of my session with a Sports Psychologist I thought it would also be interesting to interview my triathlon coach Matt Warnock to share the type of training I have done in the first 3 months of training for Boston Marathon.

Here is the link to the Pomodoro method tool I use.

Client experience – getting back to training after pain

Here’s the story of one of my clients, Filiz, who I am so proud of working with!

Filiz used to be super sporty and fit. About three years before she came to me she had run the Dam2Dam (a popular local 10 mile run from Amsterdam to Zaandam) with perhaps not the correct training and […]

Core training – 4 Reasons to Question Why We Do It

OK, so this blog could be controversial and is probably the opposite to your expectations from a Personal Trainer. I decided to write this because I often get asked: “can we do lots of core today? I want a flat stomach”.

The more I learn, the more I challenge and question things. One of these subjects […]
