I make individual training programs that help you to achieve your goals. Through a well planned training program you will not waste unnecessary time and energy. Depending on your goals and the training package you choose, I will make an annual training plan and weekly or monthly training plans. Your program will be reviewed using the power or heart rate files you provide, and will be adjusted accordingly.
Exercise physiologist, sports nutritionist
Alan Smeets (Kerkrade, The Netherlands, 1984) At a young age I started swimming, with only three to four hours of training a week, I was able to win medals at the Dutch national youth championships. Over the years, I started training more and the way of coaching became also different. Because of my own experience in sports I have learned a lot over the years.
My education and my own sport experiences are an excellent base to coach athletes from various sports disciplines. In addition, my studies also give me the opportunity to advise on sports nutrition and weight management.
At the moment I work with World tour rider Jelle Vanendert (Lotto-Soudal), he achieved several top ten results in World Tour races and won a mountain stage in the Tour de France to Plateau de Beille. I also work with some of the best junior cyclists from the Netherlands. Most of the cyclists, triatletes, or runners I train are amateurs.
