Matej is a fitness specialist and movement therapist focused on climbers.
A few years after the university I realized that wood engineering is not my destiny. I started to educate myself in fitness. I began as a coach and climbing instructor. After some years I got a job in a place with a climbing specialization. I worked with many climbers every day. They came to me with finger pain, shoulder, elbow pain, etc. Also, I worked with competitors (the Czech climbing team). I helped them make their movements more efficient and free of any danger to their muscles and tendons. It was complete work containing after-season regeneration and pre-season conditioning of an athlete. I participated in some European championships as a physio support.
Thanks to these experiences and my 17 years of climbing I understand better climbing movements so I can help with a number of health issues associated with climbing.
I always put maximum emphasis on individual characteristics and differences.
