Mariska van Rooden


A native of a small town in the Netherlands, Mariska has always lived an active lifestyle and was engaged in activities such as playing indoor volleyball, inline skating, speed ice- skating and just riding her city bike as her normal way of transportation. However it was not until 2007 that she started getting involved in Endurance Sports. A friend asked her to train with her for a marathon and at that moment a runner was born.  A few years later, Mariska added swimming and biking to her training and fell in love with the triathlon community. She gets her energy and passion from seeing and helping others achieve their goals and that is why she decided to become a coach. She wants to give back what the sport and other athletes and coaches have given her.  She knows that finding that balance between achieving your athletic goals, family life and work can be tough and demanding and as a coach she will help you find that balance.
