As a Kinesiologist and a long time Personal trainer I have deeper understanding of a movement from biomechanical, anatomical and physiological standpoint.
That qualifies me to pinpoint and correct any possible weak points that one might have. By addressing them we're able to build a strong foundation. At which further progress can be made with safe and healthy workout programs designed specifically according to one's current fitness and health level.
If I were to pick one thing that gives me absolute joy and pleasure that would be feeling of happiness and content on my clients faces once they reach their goals. Every workout requires a certain type of sacrifice. There are no shortcuts towards your goals. Sometimes it gets hard and you have to reach deep down within yourselves to find a way to push through. Seeing you going through that, supporting you and motivating you towards your goals makes me proud and pushes me even harder to get you there. Changing peoples lives and turning them into happy individuals...it's the best job on the planet,
Matija is one of the best personal trainers I have ever worked with! He is extremely knowledgeable with everything related to physical fitness and proper form and is focused on helping you achieve your goals. He is a dedicated and genuine individual. I highly recommend Matija to anybody!
A wealth of knowledge and training skills. Been able to achieve desired results on an ongoing basis. Training Junkie is the real deal.
I have some back issues. Matija was able to provide a workout that helped my back. He was the only trainer to do that. He was always there and always had a positive outlook
I establish a rapport where we try to get in sync with each other, understand each other's feeling and ideas. Define short and long term goals etc.
Then I do a postural assesment to see if there is something that needs to be addressed first. Afterwards we continue with movement and technique training. Once basics are covered, real fun starts.
Professor of Kinesiology.
ACE (American Council of Exercise) Certified Personal Trainer
I have worked with children (elementary school), teenagers, adults, basically every age group so far.
We don't bite. The more information you're able to provide us regarding your lifestyle, habits, desires, fears etc. helps us to understand you better and to find what works the best for you. At the end of the day it's a teamwork.
Like I mentioned before, ask anything and everything. There are no wrong questions.
