We are all different, and there is no one size fits all solution in health and fitness. Understanding individual needs, motivations and goals is at the core of personal training. 1-on-1 sessions provide room for assessments, ongoing feedback, and personalised program design, along with guidance and support.
Hi, I’m Geri!
My approach to fitness revolves around a resilient, pain-free image, and about practical physical competence (AKA real-life fitness) that ensures a liberating confidence in our movements and supports longevity. I believe that in order to establish a sustainable physical practice we must respect our evolutionary design and our biological needs, and capitalize on our innate movement potential.
There are many facets of self-improvement, but my role as an educator is to help optimize mental and physical health through movement and breathwork; and to promote a life more grounded, more healthy, more free. I see myself more as a guide rather than a coach, dedicated to empower people and provide authority to create and maintain lifelong positive habits.
Recurring injuries, chronic pain, stress, anxiety, depression, limited movement, poor posture, troubled sleep, lack of motivation, low energy, difficulties to focus all seem to be normalised in our days, but they shouldn’t be! I’m not trying to sell a silver bullet or a 30-day challenge for a beach body, but introduce you to a holistic practice that addresses it all and can be easily turned into a lifestyle.
I’m enthusiastic to share what I learned along my journey and be a guide along yours.
I can help assessing functional limitations, tailoring exercise plans to your needs, improving sleep quality, refining breathing habits, recovering from injuries, refining your running form, providing tips for lifestyle integration, assisting sport specific goals, and giving a tangible entry point into breathwork and natural movement.
Ultimately I would like to empower you to reclaim your strength and freedom.

"I am from Austria and I contacted Geri to write me a running plan via online coaching. We started right away with a two hour consultation and video analysis. I was very happy with the program because it fitted my personal needs (fat loss and getting faster). He set up a training schedule and showed me lots of exercises to improve my technique. I recommend you Geri with all my heart. He is not only passionate about running and natural movement but also about his students. I loved the fact that my training plan was a "living" plan that was weekly adjusted to my progression and life."
"I really needed a good personal trainer to advance my running, and take it to the next level. We have put together a training plan that was built around my goals, current physical performance, and personal and professional life. I liked the vibes that Geri brought and that he knew what I wanted. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a professional and down to earth coach with a cool training aesthetic."
"I have often started new workout routines, but have struggled to stay with them long-term and really integrate exercise in my life. Geri helped me figure out my motivation for exercising and came up with a program that is in line with my fitness aims. He suggested some concrete goals which are very helpful for me to stay with the program. I really appreciate that Geri doesn't just suggest what to do, but also explains how best to do it and why it's beneficial, including all kinds of nerdy facts about exercise, health, and psychology. I would fully recommend Geri as a personal trainer!"
"I had an issue with my knee prohibiting me from running long distances without experiencing severe pain lasting several days after a run. Longer resting periods did not seem to cut it. The problem would come back. Through some analysis sessions, Geri helped me figure out the core of the issue and suggested corrective exercises for flexibility and strength where it was needed. It was a unique combination of exercises aimed to solve my specific issue. After a period of less intensive running and performing the exercises regularly, I could start increasing my distances again - without the pain. I definitely recommend Geri for consultation on any issue or injury that restricts your performance! He is passionate with great attention to detail, and clearly has a lot of personal experience in many different fields of exercise. "
