Achievements as a coach

I do not measure my success as a coach with titels that my athlets have achived. An Ironman champion does not fill me with more pride than an athlete who runs his first 10k. When I can help my athletes reach the goals we have set out I´m successful! Sure, I have been coaching Ironman and national Champions but I also coach normal people. People who just want to become a little faster or fitter.

Achievements as an athlete

In sports it´s usually all about times and ranks That´s also why I have listed my best results beneath.

Success in sports is also a question of how we define success! For me it´s not always a question of ranks and times. Success also means that I like what I am doing. When it makes fun when you are working out you keep on doing it! I still have fun when I´m working out! I´m healthy,

I´m fit, I´m having fun, now that is really success for me!
