ABOUT ME

The optimal function between body, mind and soul is what attracts me to this beautiful and challenging exertion. Mental strength and positive thinking can both contribute in making you a better, more complete, successful and content athlete. Whether you are a hobbyist or professional athlete – the process of participation and relaxation leads to a more focused and confident athlete. Losing doesn’t exist – you either win, or learn something that will lead to victory. My goal is having you participate at your optimum potential!

Being a very passionate and active athlete myself – from cricket to kickboxing and everything in between, I have the knowledge and experience to help any athlete on any level. Studying and working n Europe for 5 years gave me even more insight and experience about different athletes in a variety of sports on different levels. Whether you are starting, or at the peak of your fitness/sport career – I am goal-driven and determined to improve any athlete.

“I’m passionate about two things – sport and people.”

My academic achievements include:

BA Human Movement Science (Sport Psychology) degree at the University of Pretoria

Post-graduate degree in Psychology at the University of South Africa

Post-graduate degree in Psychometry at the University of Johannesburg

Diploma in Fitness & Health Trainer (Vital Akedemie – Vienna, Austria)

Diploma in Sport Mental Training (Vital Akedemie – Vienna, Austria)

SERVICES

Each individual is exactly that, individual Every person knows that we see, feel and experience things different than the person/athlete next to you. Sport is no different.

This combination of individualism and sport-related challenges makes every situation unique and gives endless possibilities and challenges. You want someone who can give you tailor made solutions – in German or English.
