About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have trained sword fighting for more than twenty years.
I learned most from a Japanese teacher who taught in Amsterdam.

He was a true source of knowledge about these traditions and sometimes told me
that training is like a walk. It does not matter how quickly you reach the goal
but what you see during your walk and what you will take.

For me, training is more than just learning technology, but indeed following
of a path that always provides new insights, and confronts with its own strength, weakness and failure.

Since it is a martial tradition, there is a strong tendency to fall into kind of hardness, kind of imitation warrior, but over time it has also become clear to me
that training should lead to softening, mildness. Or as my teacher said training does not make softer harder.

I have experienced that training is a good way to face everyday life
Also with a friend I once learned. With what I taught him, he got another drug friend. A result that, incidentally, must be written to account for, not mine.

I can honestly say about myself that I know a few things but I am still at the beginning. The only thing I can do is walk and watch.

I've done teaching before but I always thought training was more important. That I am now teaching
to give has to do with the fact that I do not want to lose the knowledge I received from the teacher
let go pass.

Yoga for children, teens and families to inspire creativity, curiosity and connection!
Yoga for children with Martina is where children can speak and be heard; play and be seen; move and be moved - in mindful and inspiring ways. Where children are encouraged to be happy, calm and confident in who they are. A fun, creative and safe environment for children and teens to engage in group activities with their peers as well as family based sessions. Yoga for children is a wonderful asset to their growth and development. A holistic learning time, which cultivates patience, compassion and respect for the self, one another and all living beings.

Online personal training / video meetings and workout programs
I am a personal trainer; graduated with a bachelor STAPS APAS (bac + 3). I studied for 1 year in Prague, coaching, nutrition, physiology, psychology, and many other sports related to sports and it allowed me acquiring a new approach to coaching and sport in general. I adapt to my client's profile to offer him or her the best training plan based on his/her goal and desired results. Finding an activity that you like is the key to success. Indeed, appreciating the process is essential because lasting physical change is a long-term process. If you are looking for someone who will make you lose 5 pounds in 1 month, you are on the wrong path. Indeed, lasting results come from a daily lifestyle and not from a few abs exercises before summer. A typical session will always include a warm-up and a return to calm. The heart of the session will depend on your objectives: fitness, weight gain, strength gain, weight loss ... Depending on your objectives, we will do: training circuits, weight training, cardio, flexibility exercises.

Passionate about cooking and good food, I quickly realized that making a simple, effective and enjoyable eating routine was the solution to avoid the frustration of restrictive diets and to maintain a long-term nutritional balance in a society. who today asks us to live at 100 per hour! Using nutrition and sport wisely helps everyone maintain or restore the balance of their body.

Fitness Motivation and Diet during quarantine period.
Covid-19 has hit us all in a hard manner, all the gyms, swimming pools, and other workout places are closed. Staying at home leads to excess snacking and causes an increase in weight. This class will be a one on one/group session with a mixture of activities involved in running, cycling, and other non-contact activities such as yoga and power training. My main role would be to motivate and involve the participants in these activities to keep themselves fit. Participants will be trained in weight loss, weight constant, and muscle building. I have lost 25 kilos in 5 months until March 14, but after the lockdown, it took me a while to figure out activities to keep myself fit. Therefore I want to use my experience as a lesson to people who are facing difficulties.
