About me

Experienced Physical Performance Coach with a proven track record of success at the highest level of football in Romania. Currently serving as a valued member of the coaching staff at a top-tier football team in Romania, where I specialize in optimizing the physical abilities and performance of professional athletes.

My educational background equips me with the knowledge to design tailored training programs that enhance athletic performance, prevent injuries, and maximize the potential of each player.

In addition to my role at the football club, I proudly contribute as a Physical Performance Coach for the Romanian Women’s National Team. Working with elite athletes from different backgrounds has honed my ability to adapt training strategies and methods to suit individual needs, fostering a culture of inclusivity and excellence.

My coaching approach emphasizes a multidisciplinary approach, incorporating elements of strength and conditioning, agility and speed training, injury prevention, and sports nutrition. I am passionate about staying updated on the latest advancements in sports science and emerging trends in physical performance, allowing me to deliver cutting-edge strategies to enhance the capabilities of athletes under my guidance.

With a strong commitment to professional development and a genuine passion for optimizing athletic performance, I thrive in dynamic and demanding environments. I possess excellent communication and leadership skills, empowering me to collaborate effectively with coaching staff, medical teams, and athletes, fostering a cohesive and high-performing team culture.
