Sport and fitness literally saved my life. Twice as a matter of fact . 

First time at the beginning of my 'escape from addictions, anxiety & Street life journey' in 2006. Second time, when I was fighting for life in 2021 going through near death experience twice, fighting with severe & sepsis shock for weeks . 

I've coped with addictions, anxiety, depression, PTSD as well as health conditions like asthma, heart failure, immune system. 

I came to UK in 2006 with nothing but suitcase full of CVs and £70, and built up my current life by hard work. Slowly , day by day starting from zero. Fitness was my mental escape from beginning. Together with CBD supplements, helped me go through really tough & challenging years. I'm a father of two, husband, godfather and 2 businesses Owner, going through life the way I want, always  looking for positives in not always positive situations. I enjoy my trainings and competitions - it's my time. I love traveling and good food as well as spending time with kids and observing their own paths in life. 


When I first started I would never thought I'd achieve what I achieved. I got hooked up and over last 15 years I went from weight lifter to strongman to bodybuilder to mma fighter, muay thay & Brazilian Jiu jitsu fighter to eventually ultra runner and IRONMAN. I have changed my body composition and shape many times, tried all 'diets' and different approaches, had few cage & ring fights. Competed in almost 30 BJJ tournaments always bringing a medal, to include British Open gold. I have done several ultra runs, tens of marathons and half marathons and I'm a several Finisher of Ironman and smaller distance triathlons. All those medals, trophies, six packs, toned pecs & quads and heavy PBs in powerlifting are great & awesome but the biggest win for me is the mental health state and that's what I'm trying to help people with too. 



My main background is martial arts & weight training and my biggest strength as a personal trainer & fitness instructor, on top of above, is mental fitness conditioning, confidence boost and ability to help to believe, then achieve.
