My name is Jeroen (Jay-rone).
Who am I and what is it that I do?
I have diplomas in business management, hospitality management and business administration. I'm also a certified personal trainer and nutrition coach.
After starting my career in the hospitality industry I moved on into the retail- and fitness industry. From there on I started a catering- and a fitness company. When I'm not coaching clients in the fitness studio you can find me in front of the classroom.
I've been a teacher for over 14+ years. I teach hotel-, business-, business administration- and restaurant management at college. Besides the business side of teaching I also educate and train new personal trainers and nutrition coaches.
I have quite a few fields I'm interested and passionate about.
And now I hope to teach and inspire you as well via the online way of teaching.
