ATHLETIC – MENTAL – PERSONAL COACHING FOR SPORT & BUSINESS
I love to work as a athletic / physical coach as it is both challenging myself to stay up-to-date with new ideas of sport science and to find individual strategies for high performance athletes and incredible satisfying to be part of their sucessful careers. I mainly work with top alpine ski racers like Anna Fenninger, Nici Schmidhofer or up-and-coming athlete Franziska Gritsch.
As mental coach for athletes / clients in sport & business I can combine my personal experience in extreme sport with my creativity.
education & certification
Master of Sports Science & Coaching, University of Salzburg – ÖBS Mentalcoach – B-license coach Alpine Ski Racing
I graduated with a Master degree in Sport Science and Coaching from the University in Salzburg. Already during my years as a student I discovered my passion for athletic and physical training and got the chance to work as private coach for at that time up-and-coming Kart driver Martin Ragginer for three years who is nowadays racing in the Porsche Mobil Super Cup.
Coming from alpine skiing myself I knew that I wanted to work with alpine ski racers. In addition to the highest possible coaching qualification in skiing (C-Trainer license) I got certified as an official ÖBS mental coach. In 2004 I started working as private coach of the talented at this time 14 year old Anna Fenninger. This was the start of a final 10 year long partnership working as individual athletic and mental coach of Olympic Gold medalist 2014 ANNA FENNINGER and winner of the Overall World Cup 2014.
Since 4 years I am also working as individual athletic coach of Austrian World Cup racer NICI SCHMIDHOFER as well as with up-and-coming alpine skier Franziska Gritsch.
As mental coach I currently work high performance athletes in Alpine Ski Racing, Kite-surfing and Golf.
Additionally I work as mental and athletic coach at the Skihotelfachschule Bad Hofgastein, a specific school for young alpine ski racers.
Seasons working as ski-, athletic and mental coach of the Austrian Ski Federation Europacup team as well as with the junior team of Salzburg round off my experience on the coaching side.
