About me

Hi all, my name is Simon, currently 39 years old and proud father of two beautiful daughters, Liz and Fem. They are the most important thing in my life and the reason to be the best version of myself every day.

I did all kinds of sports in my childhood, like athletics and judo, but the biggest part of my life I played football. After I stopped playing football, I started running, because I always loved to run. I did some competitive runs and even ran 2 half marathons. But after some time just running wasn’t satisfying anymore and I searched for a new challenge. Around that time I did a trial class at CrossFit Heerlen in July 2016. I immediately knew CrossFit was what I was looking for.

The thing I love most about CrossFit is the great variety of movements in conditioning, gymnastics and weightlifting. Because of that, each day is different and the variation of movements and scaling options makes it suitable and challenging for everybody; beginner to advanced.
Besides that I absolutely love the atmosphere in our box where everyone can be who he or she is and everyone helps each other. The quote “Leave your ego at the door” describes best how I feel about CrossFit Heerlen and it’s awesome community.

As a coach I look forward to helping you all. CrossFit has been an ongoing journey for me since I started in July 2016 and every day I try to challenge and improve myself. I want to be part of your CrossFit journey too and help, motivate and challenge you during each class, to achieve your own goals and ambitions.

I hope to see you soon in one of my classes.
