What brought me to the work in Fitness?
From early childhood I have devoted most of my time to athletics, where I achieved the best success. I have gained my experience as a racer and trainer. Focus on health is key element for me when I train any athletes or people with any goals in their lives. Everyone knows, suffering with injuries is the worst period in a sports career. For this reason I gained qualification as a sports therapist to prevent common injuries which occur in sports. I would like to share my experiences I achieved in past 15 years in Sport, Fitness and also as a Therapist and give my clients full satisfaction. I do my best to deliver your goals in healthy and fun way and maintain them in long term.
I set both long and short term goals for my clients using different techniques that involve strength training, shaping and toning, circuit routines, cardio and core workouts. TOGETHER we will achieve these goals you desire.
For me personal training is not only about getting a great workout, it should also be a learning experience for you to be able to create and continue your own routines to improve your personal fitness level. My workouts and exercises are based on my own experiences and I am constantly researching and keeping up to date with the latest trends.
Time to get started! The weights won’t lift themselves! It’s never too late to become what you’ve always wanted to be.
What is my favourite sport?
Sport, which sits on my heart is athletics. I have experienced lots of beautiful moments and every little improvement has motivated me more and more. I love squash, hiking and mountain biking. Snowboarding this is my sport hobby in the winter, I love it.  
How I spend my free time and my interests?
Leisure time devoted to sports, sitting with friends over a glass of good wine or good pint of chilled beer :-)  
What for me makes a healthy lifestyle?
The balance between physical and mental but .... It's also important to treat yourself time to time.
