I love sports. From a young age I have always engaged in top level sports. I started with competition level sports at the age of 9 (sports swimming). Later I switched to martial arts with Jiu-Jitsu and Judo were I trained with Dutch national team coach sensei Bert van Haren. Additionally I have always done strength training, yoga & cycling. I do solo and group rides many times a week and have participated in some classic rides like the Alpe d’Huez. And I recently started polefitness.
Kickboxing is my main sport and passion. I was trained by the best kickboxing trainers in the world, first with multi world champion sensei Ivan Hippolyte at Vos Gym. Later I joined team Mousid Gym to train and teach at highest level of kickboxing.
Next to my sports career I have been exposed to the high demands of international business. After my graduation from the Hoge Hotelschool in Den Haag, I have held sales and management positions in the hospitality branch ranging from the Ritz Carton New York City and 5* hotels in Amsterdam. So I understand your busy schedule and the challenges that come with combining sports with a professional career.
After a number of years in hospitality, I chose to make my dream come true: “coaching people towards a long term healthy lifestyle”. I’m truly passionate about helping people being the best version of themselves and living their best live.
To be able to do this as professionally as possible, I decided to educate myself further and graduated as Certified Personal Trainer at the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). I’ve experienced first hand cases with overweight, depression and hormonal imbalances and understand that a healthy lifestyle is not only about exercise. It’s important to tackle both physical and mental aspects to get the most durable results. Therefore I’ve complemented my knowledge with Hormone studies.
If this all feels overwhelming to you, please understand that I have worked with all kinds of people with all kinds of levels and I enjoyed every single one of them. I know from my own experience what it feels like to start from zero. I myself have experienced some of life toughest challenges, so every step forward puts a smile on my face. My passion to make as any women as possible feel happy, healthy and confident. I’m here for you, to help you live your best life. ❤️
