Personal Trainer - in- and outdoor group trainer - running trainer - online coach

At this moment

I live together with my husband Miljenko and three children in Amstelveen, a town on the border with Amsterdam in Holland.

I work as a group instructor in a local gym and as a Personal Trainer in a training center (for people with brain injuries, PTDS and burnout problems). Besides that I give privately outdoor (bootcamp and running) training to groups and individuals.
 
I grew up in a real soccer family

My father was a talented goalkeeper, my brother played professionally in Holland, me and my sister even played soccer in one team for a while. My mother supported where and however she could.

My soccer career

I started playing at a local and later regional level when I was a teenager. In my early 20's I was playing several years at the national level in Holland. The international experience I gathered playing for one of the best women's soccer clubs in Croatia.

Unfortunately a serious hamstring injury forced me to quit soccer and during my recovery of this injury, I discovered strength training and the importance of it.

Future plans

I wish to work as a youth performance trainer to help improve theirs sport performance through strength, sprint, agility and plyometric training.

Together with my dear friend Emina Pejakovic  (a nutritionist and online coach) from Ireland, we are working on creating an online platform to help people with nutrition, training and lifestyle in general.

Let me know if you need help and want to talk more about it.
