Meet Arthur

Hi triathletes,
My name is Arthur de Niet and I have been working with Dora in the Trifharder team from the start approx. 2 years ago first as an athlete, since 2023 as an IRONMAN certified coach myself. 

In my day-to-day-job I am a Global IT Solution Architect in the Energy company Shell International but in my free time I am also a mental coach. I have recently developed a mental coaching program for athletes.
When I was a student I was already quite into running and triathlons (only Olympic  and sprint distance)  but then I got married, got a job and kids shifting my focus on other priorities in life. Just 4 years ago however, I recovered my love for running and 2 years ago also found my passion for triathlons again. 

As I am not 18 anymore I need to take better care of my body so I decided to look for a good coach who both has a lot of experience and understands my personal needs for recovery. I found that in Dora and I have since then already done an unofficial half triathlon distances during the Covid period and in 2021 I did my first official IM 70.3 in Maastricht. 

After my first marathon (Amsterdam) in 2021 I have decided that it was time for my ultimate challenge: The real IM Maastricht in August 2022 which I have finished within the limits I was expecting and I really enjoyed the journey as well leading to the start line.

For 2023 I have a few shorter races in the agenda then full triathlon and I am looking forward to start working together will you all!
