Jan Strangmuller

Head coach of Road2Kona

I have been involved in the Triathlon since 1994, when I have been moving longer distances since I was junior and short triathlon. I wanted to go my first Ironman before 18, but due to my age I had to wait a little longer. In the meantime, I learned kayaking and won several World and European Champion titles in Quadrathlon. Here I qualified for Hawaii and there I won at my first start at 9:09. (Faris Al Sultan was 3rd) Since then, Ironman has been a heartfelt affair, and until 2005, when I quit racing as a professional, I achieved results that I am very proud of and proud of. Triathlete magazine, which is now the main theme of this website. 25 years of experience in the world of professional triathlon gives me know-how that cannot be bought or quickly acquired. However, I realize that just like equipment goes leaps and bounds, coaching methods are constantly improving. While in 1999 and 2000, when I trained for 40 hours a week at enormous intensities and relied solely on feelings, the situation today is much simpler.
