BSc. Sport Physiotherapy now specialsed in Personal Training and Run Coaching
Professional IRONMAN Triathlete
Former Special Forces Military Member & Sports Instructor
Former CEO, Entrepreneur
15 years of strength training experience
As a former CEO, Sport Physiotherapist (BSc. NL) and Special Forces Military Instructor I really become alive when I work with people that are having dreams and desires that would be considered close to impossible to most. Working with professional athletes and leaders from all industries for years as a Physical therapist prooved this once again, the greater the clients mind-set and goals, the more joy I get out of it. Leaving the company I built to pursue Triathlon on a professional level will evolve into a self-centered and challenging journey in order to become the best athlete one can be. In contrast to that new life which is coming, I spent most of my time in the past focused on rehabilitating my patients the quickest way possible and built a business based on that idea. I realised that I need to keep working with motivated and positive individuals in order for me to feel balanced and through that gain energy to keep improving as an athlete myself.
The 1% Personal Training
The 1% stands for individuals who already have a highly developed mind-set, drive and focus in their field of expertise and for those who are keen to become one of them. This program certainly isn't for anyone but rather people who are looking for someone that is highly committed in their corner to get them physically and mentally them to where they want to be.
Why the wolf?
The wolf demonstrates the desired personality traits my customers seek out. Wolves are intensely ambitious and never shy from hard work. Socially adept, they function well in leadership and management roles as well as jobs requiring vision and strength of character. They demand loyalty and provide the same allegiance to their circle of people. The ability to perform under pressure helps them perform at the highest levels.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Als Ausgleich zu meinem intensiven Geschäftsalltag habe ich mit Matti den idealen Sparringpartner für den Einstieg in ein regelmässiges und zielgerichtetes Workout gefunden.
Matti fordert und fördert, motiviert und weiss genau, wie ich meine Komfortzone regelmässig und gezielt verlassen kann.
Seit Start der Zusammenarbeit fühle ich mich deutlich fitter, ausgeglichener und kann umso fokussierter im Alltag durchstarten.
Seit ich mit Matti einmal pro Woche im Fitnessstudio trainiere, bin ich wieder viel mobiler und vor allem praktisch schmerzfrei. Matti motiviert mich sehr, und ich kann von seiner Erfahrung als Spitzensportler und Physio profitieren. Ich habe ein besseres Körpergefühl und mehr Leistung im Beruf.
Arbeite nun seit 2,5 Jahren mit Matti als Personal Trainer und bin immer noch begeistert, fühle mich fitter und habe mehr Energie. Mithilfe seiner Kompetenz, seiner langjährigen Erfahrung, seinem grossen Wissen und seiner Persönlichkeit findet er schnell die einzelnen Stärken und Schwächen heraus und setzt genau dort mit seinen unterschiedlichen Übungen an. Er bringt einen auch manchmal an seine seine eigenen Leistungsgrenzen und sorgt dadurch dafür, dass man seine eigenen Ziele erreicht (oder auch noch mehr!). Aufgrund seiner ganzheitlichen Betrachtungsweise, seinem guten Gespür für den Körper, den Menschen erhält man nicht nur körperliche, sondern auch mentale Unterstützung und das noch gepaart mit Witz und Humor.
How do we train?
Below you will find the training principle we will follow. Depending on your shape and the time needed to achieve your vision each of the training blocks will vary in length and intensity.
Training load primarily build through duration of load (high repetitions) and not high weight in order to give muscles, tendons and body time to adapt to new stimulus
High focus on mobility and correct muscle activation
Shorter rests between sets 30-60sec.
3-6 weeks depending on individuals condition and experience
Training load primarily build through progressively increasing weights and less repetitions since the body is ready for a new stimulus after a successful adaptation phase
Medium rest times between sets 60-90sec.
4-8 weeks depending on individuals goal and season of athletes
Training load primarily build through high load with weights and few repetitions to work on max. strength. In addition plyometrics/jump work and reactive coordination work will be integrated.
Long rest times 3-5 Min.
4-6 weeks depending on individuals goal and season of athletes
