Work with Me.

The goal is to reinforce self-awareness, trust, and courage.

Those are the core things when creating an optimal environment to reach optimal performances.

That is the sports world where athletes and coaches can thrive.

My Approach to Peak Athletic Performance

I believe, firmly, that your life should reflect the person you are. I believe, still firmly, that there is a path for all of us that is unique to us. Highways? Fast, crowded, noisy. Paths? Calm, individual, authentic. 

What truly lightens me up in this world is you finding yourself in the world where highways are being built everywhere. You gaining more self-awareness and self-knowledge and what you want from your (sports) career so you can start living it. 

I needed to find out what are the ways for you to achieve that and here they are: assessments and consultations to help you gain more self-awareness and self-knowledge so you can access the source of your super power, authenticity. 

So, take a break from the noisy highway and let’s explore your path of self-discovery leading you to move the needle toward a more authentic way of living so you want to jump out of the bed in the mornings! 


Step 1: Assessment

Let’s start with the present situation and get a starting point where you are now at through one of the assessments that fits with your situation

Step 2: Analysis

 I don’t believe the assessments are often making the changes we wish to make, let’s analyze where you want to go from the situation that you are now in and what you would truly wish to achieve

Step 3: Strategy

Lastly, knowing where you are now and where you would want to go doesn’t bridge the gap of how to to get there yet, but a strategy does. So we make a plan for you to get there utilizing your natural strengths and authentic features.

Building a Plan for YOU and YOUR Goals

My plan is to help you solve the overwhelm of HOW to get more out of yourself more naturally. We all want results and the “old tricks” are already used and exploited by many. For example, first we figured out that anyone who works out more will succeed (quantity), then we focused on food and how beneficial a good diet is for success (nutrition), then we had the era of hustle when both of those were combined – often with very strict regimen.

Next up was deliberate practice, we needed to be smarter and not just increase the amounts we do (quality). This was very soon followed by recovery and the importance of it and sleep as a part of high performance and success.

Now, the trend is to get the most out of the person as an individual, as a unique set of components that we are. Understanding the individual differences and how to utilize them to bring the best out of the person. Welcome to join the quest with me!

Sports Capacity Assessment

Sports Capacity Assessment Results Summary

Why you don’t have to be anything else than yourself to succeed. You just need to know yourself. 

Top athletes are committed to their sport and motivated to achieve their goals. Their success is often determined by their natural predispositions, attitude, and level of competence toward their sport. 

That is why Sports Capacity assessment measures 18 critically important competencies for sports telling you the strengths and challenges you have and most importantly, how to approach them so that you can take action right away. You will get a road map based on your profile how to move on and maximize your strengths.

      • Success and winning are the end result of good habits and previous consistent, quality actions. The better you know yourself, how you work, what are your tendencies, what works the best for you, what does not – the better habits you are building to get to your goals.


      • I am covering these topics and other experiences and lessons that are both inspiring and educational in my weekly emails so why don’t you hop on to that list and be the first to receive the material I have collected?  You can unsubscribe at any time.

     But What About After?

    It is up to you. I encourage to think what is the best for you. I am happy to be here and help whenever you might need some extra support or we can talk about the longer term packages and cooperation as well! 

    Personalization? But Why?

    Limits belong to those who set them and I believe many of those limits come from situations if we…

    • don’t know who we are and what we stand for – > what is our optimal way of doing things,
    • don’t feel like we can truly express ourselves -> we fake or hide some part of ourselves, try to change too much and waste energy in that,
    • and if we are not feeling appreciated, valued, understood -> we are not going to be fully invested but instead hold onto some armor.

    That is why knowing yourself and personalization of your life based on the matters, such as values, that matter to you matters. (Enough matters to matter there? 😉 )
