Training with Petr has been a life-changing experience in a very literal sense. I stumbled into Petr out of pure fate. I went to see a location to do my neurophysiotherapy with my mum, and he was there. He approached me and introduced himself. From the start, I could see that he had a lot of experience in a variety of fields from enhancing athlete performance to rehabilitating life-long functional disabilities. He was both friendly and professional with his approach. At the time of our first meeting, I was in a wheelchair and unable to walk without causing my body to collapse with spasms and jerks. After a life-long journey as a football player, I had not been kind and had not listened to my body, resulting in pushing it to limits where even with aggravated back injuries I continued to train hard. A couple of years back, I stood up and suddenly my back injury left me immobile. The doctors found 4-5 levels with protruded, extruded, and dehydrated disks causing pinched nerves and sciatica, alongside cartilage degeneration. I tried many ways of healing it, including epidurals, surgery, and medications. These did not solve the issue and after a short period of time, my body couldn’t handle the stress, resulting in functional neurological disorder (FND). FND is a disorder that impairs the normal functioning of the body, disrupting the signals from the brain to the body through a misconnection in the nervous system. Needless to say, when I came to see Petr I was in a pretty bad state. However, Petr expressed his desire to help and we began training straight away. Every single training, he was ready to use his extensive knowledge in understanding and assessing the functional issues that needed to be addressed. Using Functional Patterns, he created a balance of steady yet continuously progressive exercises that, at times, left me and my mum in tears of joy seeing the achievements that I had previously been struggling so hard to even approach. As with any process with this intricacy, there were setbacks. Nevertheless, Petr was there supporting me all the way. He implemented Myofascial massages to loosen up the spams that I would get as my body started to wake up, yet also provided training to strengthen and revitalise the muscles and movements that had failed previously. I’m speaking in the past because it feels like it was long ago, and I was a different person. Yet, to this day we continue to train, and he continues to support me in my training. I was in a wheelchair 1 year and 8 months ago with little improvement in the first 6-7 months. I met Petr 1 year ago, and now, with Petr’s incredible knowledge and support, I AM WALKING without any aids. Petr has been amazing! He hasn’t just been there for me as a trainer but also as a friend. He commits to every single one of his clients at a personal level and aims to improve their quality of life. He is genuinely passionate about helping people. He is always educating himself on a regular basis to find solutions to any issues that may arise and/or to have a more in-depth understanding of the entire mechanics of the human body, in order to help to extraordinary levels. Next step, running, which I have full confidence will be a step that will be achieved with Petr’s training... and to many more achieved steps to come!
