Exercise Institute and Merkes Coaching combine strengths

In January 2023 the Exercise Institute and Merkes Coaching will combine their strengths. I have been working on a casual basis for the Exercise Institute since April 2020 (online) and more and more since March 2022 (in person). From January 2023, I will move into a permanent part-time position. With this move, both companies have decided that a merger of the coaching offered at both companies was inevitable and would benefit both sides.

The Exercise Institute was founded in 2015 and offers services for endurance athletes including coaching, strength and conditioning, metabolic testing, bikefitting, and more. Next to this the Exercise Institute is the training centre and coaching provider for the Cycling Development Foundation including the Junior Cycling Academy and the National Road Series teams.

What does this merger mean for Merkes Coaching:
1. Coaching via Merkes Coaching will come to an end and all the coaching I will be doing will be through the Exercise Institute.
2. All the current coached clients through Merkes Coaching will be transferred to the Exercise Institute but will still be coached by me.
3. Merkes Coaching will still offer sport science consultancy (like for Team Jumbo Visma ) upon request.

If you have any questions regarding this merger, feel free to reach out.
