As a child I first practiced sports like handball, soccer and taekwondo, but finally got stuck with the latter and pursued this sport for thirteen years. At the age of fifteen I started my career as a coach and started to run the children and youth training in my club as an assistant coach. From the following year on I also helped out in the adult training groups.
From this point on, being a coach fascinated me much more than being an athlete and from then on I focused more on this task than on anything else. This remained with me until I started my studies of sports science in October 2014, continued with various fitness trainer jobs and then finally led to the beginning of my S&C career at the end of 2016, when I started coaching the Cologne Crocodiles American Football Club as the Head of S&C.
The following year I also founded my project under the name “DevelopAthletes”, under which I was fortunate to train and coach a variety of athletes from different sports. In order to further develop myself, I went to the USA in July 2018 for almost half a year and was granted a scholarship to study at the University of Florida and to conduct an internship with the Florida Gators, a college football team.
Now, in 2020, my goal at RheinGym in Cologne is to create the #1 Performance Facility for aspiring athletes in Germany and to further professionalize my coaching services.
