In my combined 20+ years of competitive swimming, kayaking, running and triathlon experience I’ve done it all. Won races as well as finished towards the back of the pack. Had the ability to put in 30-hour training weeks as well as struggled to carve out just half an hour for exercise. Been on World Championship level as well as forced to start from the beginning as a result of overtraining (or injury). Felt on top of the world as well as suffered from fatigue, mental and physical burnout.

For a long time I lived in search of peak performance. Tunnel visioned on a specific race/result. Looking to squeeze out every ounce of energy I have only to arrive at the finish line with nothing left in the tank. In a weird way exhausting myself fully brought a sense of achievement and made me feel good about myself - that I’ve given it my best shot.

You can say I learned the hard way that pushing hard does not guarantee success. It took me years of daily mistakes to find the path that leads to lasting results. But once I figured it out, everything started to fall into place very quickly.

My approach is not bound to one specific area. Instead, it’s focused on becoming an all-around strong and resilient athlete. A data-focused step-by-step framework designed to build foundational fitness and develop resilience through gradual mindset and lifestyle changes to prepare for all those experiences and adventures we dream of having throughout our lifetime.
