Ever since childhood, I grew up with a mindset of combining a positive mindset with an athletically healthy body. All of my life I have been involved in sports in both group and individual sports. I consider my personal highlight in sports to be my TaeKwonDo career where I, as the youngest black belt ever in Belgium (at the time), managed to compete at the Belgian top for many years. Since then I have sampled just about every sport.
From this, my mindset regarding sports as an inseparable part of a healthy and balanced life only intensified and I followed in my father's footsteps by studying "Physical Education and Exercise Science" at KULeuven. After these studies, I found it imperative that in addition to graduating as an exercise scientist, I knew how to impart this knowledge to others. An extra year at the KULeuven in the form of 'Specific Physical Education Teacher Training' taught me how to correctly communicate this vision to others.
In parallel with my teacher training, I started working at Sportoase Leuven and for the sports secretariat of the KULeuven as a fitness instructor. Soon I was noticed by companies like Nike (Laakdal) and ING Belgium (headquarters Etterbeek) where I was/am responsible for corporate sports and coaching hundreds of people. From all this experience I formed my own vision where training should go hand in hand with supportive coaching. This vision pushed me to move away from the generic fitness centers where ( sportive) goals were not or only partially achieved.
Because of these reasons, I joined Powermove where Personal Training was offered in order to work in a personal and complementary way. Since Personal Training only focuses on the physical aspect which still prevented achieving goals optimally, the final step was recently taken to the "Training & Coaching" concept where all factors such as sleep/nutrition/training/coaching and rest are addressed which, in our hectic society, is the only right way to let people achieve their goals optimally and honestly on a sports level.
Given my vision on training and coaching and the understanding of what works through study and experience over the past 10 years, a partnership was also formed with KULeuven to reform the education on Sport and Training. In this way I try to give the next generation of University trainers & coaches a modern style of training & coaching so that they can in turn guide people more qualitatively in their professional career from day one. With the personal goal to make this generation healthier and more positive in life through sports, self-knowledge and a positive self-image just the way I stand in life myself.
