Vegan Calisthenics Trainer

Learning my first martial arts moves at the age of 12 kick started my lifelong fascination/obsession with fitness and other related subjects. It got me interested in internal arts like Chinese Chi Kung, but also in philosophy and ultimately lead to the need of exploring my full potential.

Adopting a plant based diet several years ago helped me tremendously when it comes to my own health, post workout recovery, and living in alignment with my core values. Then I went on to become an expert in Progressive Calisthenics (advanced bodyweight training) and trainer, which didn’t come easy. I had to fight my own demons, gained weight, developed an unhealthy relationship with food, faced adversity. At the end I managed to overcome all of that, strengthened my mind and mastered feats like the one arm pull up and push up, human flag, managed to do 420 push ups in one hour, 620 pull ups in one training session, run more than 20 miles…




Strength, full-body control and self-realisation: The search for meaning

The search for meaning: As we are facing an epidemic of chronic diseases and with mental health issues like stress, anxiety and depression being at their all-time high, we need to look deep inside and reinvent ourselves. In this talk I’m going to share with you how a plantbased diet helped me master some of the hardest moves in Calisthenics, do more than 1000 pull ups within a few hours, build more muscle, improve my health and a lot more. We’ll have a close look at the reasons behind this. We will also explore what’s the best thing we all can do to bring about a radical change to help others and how important it is to strengthen one’s mind to achieve our goals, realise one’s potential and find meaning in life.

Workshop: Introduction to Progressive Calisthenics

Want to improve your workouts, get into shape and learn new skills, all without having to pay for a gym membership, classes, apps or plans? Progressive Calisthenics, a combination of old-school and modern bodyweight training, offers you just that.

In this workshop we will go through a selection of calisthenics exercises which require zero equipment. But more importantly, you’ll learn how to progress using only your bodyweight as resistance, getting stronger, building more muscle, and improving your endurance as well as flexibility in the process, all of which will help you build a strong foundation for mastering some iconic Street workout moves.

The human flag, front lever, one arm pull ups and push ups, the planche – all that is possible with my easy to follow system. Both beginners and experienced athletes are welcome to join.
