Sports and fitness have always been a huge part of my life - It has always been my passion. As a child and teenager I used to take part in a variety of sports, starting with swimming and gymnastics, then volley ball, basketball and football. But the sport that really took my heart was football, but unfortunately due to a serious injury I was forced to stop. My passion for fitness however did not let me give up as I continued to workout and decided to make my hobby my job. I enrolled at university and studied Sports Science. Whilst studying I was also working as an instructor at gyms.

After working out the same way for years I felt that I needed to do something new, something different and more exciting and that is when I was first introduced to CrossFit, which was exactly the type of workout I was looking for. So in turn, I introduced CrossFit to the members of the gym where I worked. Seeing the response towards CrossFit by the gym members and how simple it is I decided to become a CrossFit instructor by attending seminars held abroad. Wanting to help others learn about CrossFit I decided with my friend Andreas to create our own Fitness community.

By combining the movement one conducts in their everyday lives, from housewives and young children to professional athletes and special forces individuals, in Fitness Factoryyou will find the ultimate workout!

Easy one....:

The irony about that is, when you take the focus off of vanity and put it on performance, your physique responds like never before. Fitness Factory promotes functional exercises by emphasizing the movements which create better core strength, stamina, coordination, agility, and balance to name a few. You’ll focus less on trying to “look fit”, and more on ACTUALLY becoming fit.
