About Michal

My Story

Hi, I’m originally from Prague. I used to be a ballet dancer but I only weighted 63kg and had low confidence. Because of my look, I was quite often targeted by bigger guys, and I wasn’t happy about it. 

I always loved fitness, read many fitness magazines and trained on my own, and one day in 2009, I decided that I had enough of being just a skinny dancing stick. I decided to improve myself and move into fitness and to go abroad. My choice came from my heart, and my choice was Australia.

The plan was to learn English to be able to train people at the gym in both English and Czech languages one day. So I took the CHALLENGE and went on my own to Australia for one year, which changed everything.

As a result of the decision and action, I learned another language. I discovered my passion for learning more about fitness, training, and nutrition to help myself and others. 

The new knowledge helped me build my physique and the confidence I desperately needed.

My plan was to start helping other guys build their bodies and confidence. So I decided to start working in one of the biggest gyms in Australia, Fitness First Bond Street, so I could help more people.

But there was still a problem…

I was still dealing with language difficulties. On top of that, I have found that everyone in the fitness industry is “The Expert”. It doesn’t matter if at the gym or online. And most of those “Experts” were even arrogant, probably hiding their lack of knowledge. 

Well, I completely ignored them and started studying like crazy with all the top fitness educators and trainers worldwide. I’ve learnt in depth the principles for weight loss, muscle building, strength training, programming, nutrition, psychology, habits. What happened then? I was able to start building my own programs and systems to help my clients get the body and the results they’ve always wanted to achieve. And if they wanted, I could teach them any ballet drills and improve their flexibility.

I created a transformation system. But I didn’t stop there. I also built my a training app with a clear demonstration by me of each exercise. I can transform or build up any man or woman anywhere on earth through my training platform.

And as a result, in the last decade, I have been able to help many people, improve their health, physique, confidence, habits and happiness. 

I have received many happy messages about how training with me has improved their personal and working life. Honestly, that’s the best feedback I could get.  

The Transformation: 

This whole journey has changed me significantly as a person and human being, and I`m pleased and grateful for that. 

I`m also a proud father of my young son William and a big fan and practitioner of Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
