Meet the Northern Suburbs TRI coach – Reinier Pieterse
Reinier discovered his passion for running at age 12 and struggled in the early years to balance all his different sports as he had too many to mention. finally in his first year in High School he decided to focus on biathlon and cross country and was a provincial athlete in both that same year right through to his early 20’s . In his early 20’s he then took a break from competing to focus on family life. After about a 10 year brake he decided to come back to the sports he loved. That’s when he discovered triathlon. After training and competing in his first sprint Triathlon he immediately knew that this is the lifestyle he wants to live. He continued to compete in local sprint, Olympic and ironman 70.3 distances every year.
Reinier has a great passion for the beginner athlete the age grouper who has to fit training into his busy family life, career etc. He believes that these athletes are the true heroes doing the impossible while doing life as we know it.
He is a involved father of two, ocean lover, triathlon racer and adventure junkie.
