Why I‘m

By managing the German division of a gym chain, I was able to collect lots of management experience.

“Practice what you preach” – you can’t teach without exercising yourself, and your diet should be alright as well. ;-)

I’m constantly inspired by the interesting people I get to work with everyday.
