I am Hendrik, 23 years old and the youngest member of T3ACK. During my student days I rowed together with Ward Lemmelijn. Later I became Ward's first trainer, this from my interest in the human body and passion for rowing. Gradually I could go to doctor Vincent Vanbelle, trainer Kurt Lobbesteal and exercise physiologist Jan Olbrecht with the necessary questions.
T3ACK gives me the opportunity to have even more cross-fertilization with fellow trainers with the same philosophy. This helps me in my learning process as a trainer and I would like to help athletes of all levels in achieving their goals.
Kurt developed his passion for endurance sports, physiology and coaching during his studies into a master's degree in physical education. As a trainer of the triathlon top sports school (2005-2014), he delved further into this matter. Meanwhile, Kurt works together with promising athletes from various endurance sports and with several medals at Belgian and European championships as a result. Victor Campenaerts is the most striking of these. To achieve the best results in top sport, Kurt strongly believes in a long-term and multidisciplinary approach. He finds the ideal framework for this within T3ack.
