"Using a mix of best practice and scientific evidence to optimize performance"
What I do
Scientific research & blogs
I have published multiple peer-reviewed articles about a variety of topics related to strength and conditioning. Click here to see the full-list on Researchgate. You can download some articles for free and freely request the full-text of other articles as I'm not allowed to upload them publically.
See below for my latest blogs in which I discuss the practical applications of the research
As a strength and conditioning specialist I can help you with:
Becoming faster, stronger or getting a better endurance
Rehabilitation from injuries
I have done individual based and groups based high-performance training for individuals ranging from recreational to elite level. My experience as an athlete and my theoretical knowledge as an applied sport scientist have greatly helped me to develop effective programs for both adults and younger individuals. In my approach to training it is not just about getting stronger. Rather, it is about maximizing the transfer of the training to your performance by using concepts from motor learning and motor control, dynamic systems theory, anatomy, exercise physiology, sports psychology, etc. I use best practice and scientific evidence to optimize performance and prevent injuries.
The following motto characterizes my approach to strength and conditioning: "If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail." It reflects my multidisciplinary approach to training where I consider all relevant aspects.
I have been giving numerous presentations and workshops about a variety of topics related to strength and conditioning such as recovery and adaptation, strength training for runners and workload monitoring and the relation with performance and injuries, etc.
These workshops included theory and also many practical applications.
