Meet 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.

“Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.”
“Part of courage is simple consistency.”

Hanlie Jordaan 

Hanlie’s been an avid runner all her life, she has competed in numerous running events and obtained provincial colours in both cross country and biathlon a few times. Some of her best running times are 1:27/ half marathon and 39min/ 10km.

Naturally she progressed to taking part in triathlon races when a friend invited her to join Embark in 2018. "Embark guided me through the process of only running and swimming to getting on my first road bike!"

“I studied dietetics/nutrition because I believe that with the right eating habits more energy becomes available for you to achieve your exercise goals. Having a solid dietetics background enables me to constantly do research in the field and convey the latest information to my fellow athletes.” She follows a holistic approach when formulating an eating plan for her clients; taking your current eating habits, body composition, exercise regime and DNA into consideration.

She completed her BSc Dietetics degree at the University of the Western Cape in 2016. Currently she is doing her masters in the field of sports nutrition and eating disorders while aiming for her next triathlon goal.
