Originally From: Budapest, Hungary

Training, history:
In 2013, I tried a funcional training class at Budapest, where all my crossfit career started, altough did not not know yet, it will be a crossfit career. After a half year, going 4-5 times a week combining this funcional training with thai boxing classes, I decided to move to Spain, where I changed my routine to long distance running and swimming during almost a year. The routine again converted to be boring, so I started to look for an other sport on Youtube. When I suddenly found the CrossFit Games which was going on live. It was a love at first sight. Next Monday I went to try a CrossFit class, and I directly signed up with an unlimited membership. Few months later I met with Lacee Kovacs, CrossFit Games athlete and I was really inspired by him. We started to work together and with his programming I changed the normal classes to an individual training. Since then, I am focusing on developing my skills and get better knowledge about CrossFit through participating on different seminaries and training camps.

Nutrition:
Nutrition is a lot more important than people think if you want to have results at any kind of sport and if you want to be well. Without high quality and well selected food, you are not able to perform well day by day. The combination of a sport and good nutrition, results a healthy life. Talking about my case, I am lucky to have a girlfriend who is taking care of my nutrition on a daily basis. Since then, I perform better, I feel a lot more healthier and I rarely get sick.

Choice cheat food: Chocolate, Ice Cream

When I’m not CF-ing:..
I love to travel and watch movies/series.

I coach because...
The answer is simple. At coaching of the groups of CrossTraining Valencia, I found something I love to do and can do it by passion. I love to see how people are developing, getting better and healthier. When someone comes to me after months saying that participating on the classes, changed his life, is the best feedback you can get. We decided to open a CrossFit box to create a place where we can change people’s life. To get better, to get healthier, to leave bad habits, to heal from sicknesses and addictions, to letting go stress and not with less importance, to make new friends.
