Online Personal Training

There is a World Class athlete in everyone of us, burning to challenge the limits and test oneself. In a quest for glory, though, performance and results often start to stagnate, if not go south. With the help of online personal training let's make sure that doesn't happen.

I’ve learned the hard way that pushing hard does not guarantee success. In fact, it took me years of daily mistakes to find the path that provides lasting results. Once I figured that out, everything started to fall into place in a matter of months.

Something tells me you came here because like me you also believe that your body is capable of more. And it sure is. As a personal trainer, my goal is to help you reach extraordinary level of performance, balance it with other commitments and educate how to sustain top condition throughout your life.

Effective Methodology

I've channeled years of experience in professional sports and rehabilitation into effective science-based methodology that creates top athletes. And I am happy to share it with you!

Foundation

BUILD STRONG BODY & PREVENT INJURIES

Joint mobility, flexibility and general physical fitness together form the base that allows athletes to sustain high training loads and reach extraordinary levels of performance. Poor foundation, on the other hand, is very often body's limiting factor that leads to plateaus, injuries and illnesses.

Building a strong base is critical for success and is the first step of my programs.

Consistency

DEVELOP LASTING KICK-ASS HABITS

Our life is driven by habits and we are exactly as good as what we do consistently every day. Top athletes know that and are amazing at optimizing their daily life for performance and giving the body extra energy to achieve more, recover fast, adapt to the workload and grow stronger. 

My training approach ensures healthy habits find their way into your daily life.

World Class Engine

MAXIMIZE PERFORMANCE

Improving strength, speed and endurance is not only about sweat and pain - quality sessions with targeted exercises and intervals make all the difference. Many athletes lack that and fall into the trap of practicing what they are already good at, while avoiding things that their bodies really need.

My plans contain a certain mix of intensity & recovery for best results.

Mental Edge

BELIEVE IN THE IMPOSSIBLE

Athletes are a unique group of people. Somehow, they are able to dig deep into themselves, find extraordinary passion, strong willpower to believe into what everyone else think is hard or not possible. That is an amazing quality that can bring success in any area of life.

Attaining that attitude and using it daily is at the core of my methodology.

ANDREJS BIRJUKOVS / Performance Coach

I've been an athlete for the most part of my life and was blessed to be trained by many great coaches.

However, I achieved best results after I started training on my own, combining all the knowledge and experience from different training philosophies into my own methodology.

I managed to go from being a slow and weak rookie who placed last in national championships to a top level competitor in a mere 2 years. Throughout the following 10+ years of my career I had multiple Top 20 finishes at World / European Championships as a pro athlete.

I started writing programs and giving training advice to some of my friends as a hobby. Since then, I formalized my methodology and tested it in several different sports, helping athletes of all levels of performance reach their best.

Step 1

Fitness / Lifestyle Test & Goal Setting

Once you sign up for one of the packages, we schedule another session to evaluate your current condition, focusing on fitness, mobility and overall lifestyle.

 

I will ask you to perform specific exercises beforehand which we’ll review during the session. We’ll also discuss the training process and methodology (and how it will be adjusted for your needs), as well as set goals.

 

This is also done via Skype and usually takes around 1 hour.

Tailored Training Plan

Following the evaluation I’ll prepare a training plan that will be based on the goals we’ve agreed on and is tailored to your current fitness / lifestyle.

Review Sessions

1-2 weeks into your program we will have a first review session where we will discuss your training progress and make adjustments, if needed (intensity, recovery, skipped workouts, etc.).

 

During this session I will help you analyze your training sessions and provide feedback on how to make the most of them. I will also share my experience in training process (i.e. how various factors affect condition / performance / result), recovery, nutrition and racing to help you understand the physiology behind my methodology.

 

VALUE package includes only 1 such review session to make sure the program fits, whereas in PRO package this follow up takes place every 2 weeks.

Check out these Frequently Asked Questions first

In short, VALUE package is made for those seeking to test their current fitness and get an easy to use plan of what & how to improve. PRO package, on the other hand, is for athletes looking for a coach who will supervise their training and make sure it is as efficient as possible. 

Regardless of the package, though, you will receive a structured training program tailored for you, including:

  • Specific endurance / speed workouts
  • Periodized intensity & recovery plan
  • List of exercises to improve flexibility / mobility and strength
  • Habit development framework
  • Nutrition module

VALUE package includes one review session 2 weeks into the program to ensure the program really fits.

In contrast, PRO package is an ongoing online personal training where we regularly review every training session, analyze what has worked and adjust the program where needed. During these sessions we will also discuss training practices and I will explain the reasons and physiology behind them, as well as how different factors impact performance and result (such as stress, recovery, nutrition, lifestyle, etc.).

Both packages are suitable for any level of fitness and/or activity, as they are tailor made for every individual.

Every athlete is in a different state of physical development and has his/her own fitness background. An unprepared body cannot withstand the workload of an elite athlete and has a much slower rate of recovery. Following someone else’s training plan might get quick results at first, but will cause them to stall (plateau) shortly afterwards, if not result in injury or illness.

So, training plan of an Olympic distance runner would not fit a regular 9-5 worker preparing to run his first marathon. 

Tailored training plan takes into account person’s current level of fitness, medical / injury issues (if any), time availability, lifestyle and determines correct intensity to achieve lasting results.

I suffered from both training plateaus and injuries / illnesses as I tried to do what my body was not ready for. After years of fails and research, though, I found a way to avoid that while maintaining progress and formalized into a training methodology that I practice myself and teach others.

Once you sign up for one of the packages I’ll ask you to perform several exercises and record them (on video, preferably). This will help me to assess your flexibility / mobility, based on your form & position.

I will also ask you to perform a short and easy run with several moderate intervals and record your heart rate for each of them. This data is needed to evaluate your base aerobic fitness level.

Finally, during the planning session we will discuss your background and your lifestyle for me to understand what factors affect your fitness and progress.

I will use all of that data to determine your current condition – fitness level, limiting factors (such as mobility, lifestyle, nutrition, etc.) and create a training program that will ensure you get gradual and sustainable results.

With pleasure. This is exactly the kind of areas I enjoy working with the most – analyzing training data, finding patterns, defining strengths & weaknesses and designing plans to improve performance.

In VALUE package we will have one review session where we’ll ensure the program really fits. Additionally, I will also help you analyze sessions that you’ve already performed.

In PRO package, however, we’ll have a review of training sessions every 2 weeks and correct the program to keep it as optimal as possible.

Not at all. Most of the exercises in my program require your own body weight. You can do those anywhere with little or no equipment.

My main goal is to keep you healthy – only the body that is healthy can produce extraordinary results.

If do become ill, however, all focus should be put on recovery. Make sure you’re 100% healthy before resuming the training.

  • VALUE package – once ready, just go back several weeks or even start from the beginning to avoid stressing your body too much.
  • PRO package – I’ll adjust the program for you to build back your fitness gradually. Also, I don’t expect any payment for the time you can’t train.

I used to train without knowing for sure how far or how fast I am going. I used a non-digital watch (with the seconds arrow), which I used to measure my heart rate and google maps to measure the distance.

It’s a good tool to have, but not a necessity. After all, it only simplifies data tracking (duration/intensity/recovery), but doesn’t change the approach.

No. It’s a myth that people (athletes as well) require animal protein to perform well.

In fact, more and more top level endurance athletes start to shift towards forms of plant based diet to optimize digestion and speed up recovery – two critical factors that impact performance.

Medical advice is not a part of my service and, to be clear, although my training programs work target maximal performance and optimal health they are not intended as a replacement for a certified medical advice.

I structure my training plans around issues informed to me, but I strongly suggest seeking a professional in-person treatment of any injuries or illnesses.

I do not want to keep the money I didn’t earn. So, if you see no progress and my training methodology doesn’t fit you, I’ll refund your payment, no questions asked.

You can request a refund at any point of time during the first 2 weeks.

However, keep in mind that any support and/or further cooperation stops as soon as refund is done.
