My name is Jolinda, I am 33 years old, married and mom of an 9 year old son and a 11 year old daughter.
5 years ago I couldn't run for a minute. I was overweight, smoked a pack of cigarettes a day and was anything but fit and healthy. I was always tired and lethargic.
I had to change!
I started running and it changed my lifestyle, I lost 20 pounds and now i'm running (ultra) marathons, I do Ironman 70.3 events and I finished 2 Ironman 140.6's!
(For who is not familiar with a full distance Ironman; that's 3.8 km swimming, 180 km cycling and then running a marathon (42.2 km). All this in 1 day, without a break.)
"You are an Ironmom!" my daughter said jokingly after I finished my first full Ironman, so that's where the name:
"By Ironmom" comes from. :)
I took up a study in nutrition and sports nutrition and may now call myself a nutritionist!
I have also followed and successfully completed the Ironman Certified Coach course and I took the TrainingPeaks essential and advanced course.
I think it is GREAT to be able to pass on my knowledge and experiences and to make others enthusiastic about exercise in general, help people get a better understanding of (sports) nutrition, teach people how to run faster and further and coach triathletes towards their triathlon goals!
In 2019 I started in my first 12-week running group in which I guided people from 0 to 5 kilometers, and with success!
From there it got bigger and more people got enthusiastic and now I coach 40 runner on all levels; from 0 to 5k, to runners completing a full (42.2k) marathon!
I made 6 different 12 week running programs for all levels, which can be followed in real life on the island or online.
As an Ironman Certified coach I coach all level triathletes, from athletes looking to complete their first (super) sprint triathlon to age group athletes competing in a full distance Ironman event.
