After being a very active kid and playing and competing in many sports, I went to university and studied for a career in finance. However, after getting my degree I worked as an unhappy banker who had problems with nutrition, eating disorders and training. It was time to get back to what I felt was my first love. Doing a PT course in my native Czech Republic seemed like a great idea to help me get some knowledge and solve my personal training issues. After completing my course I decided to take on another change and moved to the UK where I explored new ways of training, CrossFit and started to compete in powerlifting, competing in the English Championships.
I realised that the PT qualifications wasn’t enough for me and recently graduated with a first class degree in Strength and Conditioning Science at St Mary’s University Twickenham. I am currently also part of the S&C team for the Seniors Men’s Harlequins squad.
I truly believe that you can achieve anything with the right mindset and appropriate plan. I love CrossFit because it pushes people to become more conscious of their lifestyle, health and wellbeing. The community you become part of helps you through the highs and lows of your life, nit just your fitness.
