Born and raised in the family of physical education teachers and sport coaches my life was always bond with movement. Exploring new ways to move and learning new skills became through the years my passion, which led me from competitive swimming, through golf courses of Slovakia, courts of high school basketball in the USA, gymnastic gyms, all the way to skate parks and dance floors. I have never turn down the opportunity to compete, play, run, jump, ride, throw…
So when I was put in front of decision – what do I want to do with my life after graduating from high school, there is really no surprise that I’ve chosen to apply to “Physical education and sport” major at Faculty of physical education and sport of Charles University (FTVS UK). During my first year at the university I’ve become completely amazed with complexity of human body and obsessed with learning as much as I can about the ways to fix its flaws and enhance its limits.
Striving to apply my new theoretical knowledge I have got in 2013 accepted to the position of youth strength and conditioning coach at elite basketball club USK Prague. I was lucky to work on daily basis alongside experienced coaches, physiotherapists and medical professionals during my time in USK, which greatly influenced my philosophy and approach to training. My role in the club today is managing the physical preparation, compensation and regeneration of junior (under 19 years old) team and preparation and execution of reconditioning program for injured players of various age groups in cooperation with club physiotherapist.
In 2018 I was honored to work as strength and conditioning coach of Czech under 18 and 17 national basketball teams.
Shortly after starting my graduate studies at FTVS UK I became involved in sport performance testing and research as an intern at Sport research center of FTVS UK. My job for a one and a half year was an execution of performance tests and anthropometric measurements and subsequent analyzes and interpretation of results. This experience helped me to gain deeper understanding of sport performance, injury prevention and sport research, so after graduating I decided to continue my study at the laboratory. I’ve got accepted to a post-gradual major of Kinanthropology and in my research I am focusing on problematics of explosive power training in elite athletes.
I devote some of my time to personal training as well. You can find me at private fitness club Advance Training at Prague 2.
Helping people of all ages and backgrounds to discover their true power, overcome their fears, stretch their limits, become pain free, own their dream body and love movement as much as I do, is what motivates me since the beginning of my coaching journey and I love it!
