The first time I met Stefan was when I attended one of his courses and it was my first introduction into evidence and scientific based training and nutrition. Up until then I got fairly good results with my clients and myself but the course he delivered was far more than i expected and far more valuable than i could imagine.
Stefan manages to take complex scientific principles and conveys them in a way that can both be learned and then applied immediately to clients. I've never considered myself much of an academic until that course and it's only because of the knowledge and application that Stefan delivered to me through that course that it ignited a passion for learning that I never knew existed and that in turn has made me persistent in my pursuit to become a highly sought after coach and future educator.
Even though the course was extremely informative, I felt like it was the tip of the iceberg as to what i could learn from Stefan. I opted then to begin mentoring under his guidance and as I expected, he has passed on a wealth of knowledge not just for training and nutrition but for developing my business and brand as well as how to cope and identify a fault in my current and future mindsets.
One of the biggest impacts he had on me was improving my mentality towards business and life and till this day i still use the information and advice he gave me. He met me as a regular PT with limited knowledge, application and business strategy.
Nearly one year later and i now train other coaches at my current gym, conduct team training sessions with our PT's and i am now a requested coach within our gym for nutritional troubleshooting. Because of how Stefan delivered the course and training sessions, it fuelled me to pursue that standard of coaching as well as inspire me to begin writing my own ebooks or guides for training and nutrition and in the future, start delivering seminars as well.
Stefan is not only someone i consider a coach. He has shaped my mind, knowledge and business sense and he is someone i highly respect and look up to. I consider him to be a strong role model for anyone looking to improve their business, coaching, knowledge and quality of life.
