Dirk Baelus

Top-level sport in an alternative way, in a natural way. Dirk experiences more energy, vitality, better recovery & less illness or injury.

The iron man

After his accountancy studies, Dirk Baelus (1979) ran a pub in his native village of Arendonk. As a pub owner he really drained his body. He worked long nights, lived unhealthily, smoked and loved his beer. A boyish bar bet at the end of August 2004 changed his life. A regular customer talked about his plans for a quarter triathlon. Dirk, who was still playing football at that moment, was immediately interested - as a child he used to race on his bike and run against his cousin around the block. Shortly after that he got injured while playing football, which was his cue to say goodbye to football and embrace triathlon into his life.
