‘Marco van Basten, when his reputation was still squeaky clean, once said some rather wise and yet remarkable words. It sort of came down to this: most trainers you encounter in your career don’t teach you anything. Some may even unteach you something, while only few actually succeed in conveying knowledge.
In my life and time I’ve seen enough trainers to confidently say that Wanno is one of those trainers van Basten was talking about. The exception to the rule. Whether you’re training at dawn when the world is still asleep, at night after a busy day, before or after lunch, Wanno is always on point and enthusiastic. An old (Dutch) adage says: one crazy person can ask more questions than a hundred wise people can answer. Wanno on the other hand, could answer all my questions satisfyingly.
Wanno, thank you for all our training sessions, I’ll remember them fondly. Thanks for all the good talks, I’ve learned a lot. And last but not least, thanks for all the fun, it made the toughest exercises a little less tough.’
