The fact that you’re not where you want to be should be enough motivation

I have always been somewhat active as a kid and have been a competitive dressage rider for most of my teenage years. When I was 16, however, I discovered fitness, strength and weight training and was hooked immediately. I saw exactly the results I wanted, mentally and physically, and found a passion for life: strength and movement.

Ever since I have devoted my life and career to training, the human body and health. When I was 17 I became a certified Health and Fitness Coach and Personal Trainer and ever since have been coaching dozens of people one on one online as well as offline to help them achieve their very personal fitness goals.

For most of my training years I have primarily focused on improving my body composition by optimizing my training and nutrition to increase muscle mass and decreasing fat. Right from when I started strength training I found it fascinating to transform my body into whatever I want it to, have higher energy levels and just feeling and being strong.

In the last 1-1.5 years my focus has shifted more from purely aesthetic goals towards building more specific strength and in 2019 I started competing as a junior powerlifter.

I am also currently pursuing a Bachelor’s of Science in Physiotherapy at the European School of Physiotherapy in Amsterdam, which has, so far, brought my knowledge about the human body, movement and training yet to another level.
