My name is Karin Sloove,
35 years and with 10 years of experience in triathlon sport, I was a bit of a late bloomer in (endurance) sport. Caused by a car accident and therefore rehabilitation, I have been back in my “natural habitat”, the mountains, in recent years. Not only because of the Xtreme triathlons that I do, but finally also climbing again, as an alpinist, as a mountain biker, cross-country skier, tour skier and trail runner. I really enjoy combining and transferring all the experience I have gained in the various sports and disciplines.
In the various sports I have followed several training classes (not always completed due to my aversion to paperwork :-)), including triathlon related Triathlon trainer 3 and KNZB (dutch) swim trainer 2. In addition to a theoretical basis, I can also rely on a substantial portion of experience in all kinds of different (competition) situations and wrong actions and decisions that have made me aware of damage and disgrace. That is why I strive to provide participants with as much baggage as possible in order to be able to decide for themselves what suits them best.
In addition to my normal work as a consultant, all other available time is spent on sports or supervising and / or training others with and during exercise.
Hello, I’m Marjan van Galen…
In the year 2018 I was a participant myself at Trainingsweek.com and I was very enthusiastic about this training week. As a triathlon trainer in training, I also learned new skills that week.
In addition, I fully enjoyed the enthusiasm and knowledge of Karin and Arthur. In June 2019 I shared my passion and knowledge about the triathlon sport as a trainer, sports care masseur and Iron (wo) man.
“Oh yes, and I have been able to turn my hobbies into my work, how cool is that?”
Hello, I’m Arthur Mekenkamp…
… together with my wife Caroline, I run Le Petit Mas d’ile and since 2013 we organize the now famous triathlon training weeks. In addition to being a fanatical triathlete, I’m also one of the supervisors during the training weeks.
As a very stiff person my parents brought me to a track and field club when I was 12 years old. I could not run 1000 meters. Through the famous 11 cities speed skating tour in 1985 I became infected by what we now know as endurance sport. In 1986 I rode this speed skating tour (200+ km) myself, made my debut in 1987 on the 1/4 triathlon and in 1989 on the entire triathlon.
Since then the sport has been embraced and therefore more than 30 years of triathlon experience. Together with Karin and / or Marjan we will ensure you that every training week, triathlon or any other sport, will be an unforgettable week.
