I was born and raised in Krakow in, Poland, in 1982. Now I live in Edinburgh, Scotland, where we moved with my wife, 15 years ago.
This was a big decision, with a big consequences, a pivotal moment in my life. With only one backpack, £200 borrowed in my pocket and big dreams, I was forced to rethink and reshape my life.
My English was basic, and the first few years weren’t that great.
Doing jobs I didn’t like, mostly bar and restaurant work; I had a lot of time to think about what I really want. In Poland, I was into handball, hoping to become a pro. It never worked out the way I wanted, and eventually, I’ve switched my focus to squash. I was playing and teaching squash every day, and this is where I’ve got my first paid clients.
My former education is in PE, so I could potentially work in a school with kids. But I prefer work with adults, at least you don’t have to force them to see you 😉
After a few years sting with squash, I’ve got hooked on kettlebells. First, I used them mainly to heal my lower back pain, and then I went all in. Again!
This passion quickly morphed into Edinburgh Kettlebell Club, and next I knew, in 2014, we’d opened the doors to Fitness Soul!
I still love kettlebells, and I use them with clients, but my heart is now with endurance sports. I’ve finished a couple of ironmans, and I am still on the quest to find my limits.
As I coach, I can offer you hands-on 30 years of experience in different sports various methods, all back up by a Master’s Degree and several specific courses and modalities.
These days I focus primarily on longevity, injury prevention and strength. I want my clients to thrive in whatever fitness activity they choose and everyday life.
