Biography:
I was born and raised in the eastern part of Slovakia. Throughout my childhood I competed in swimming and basketball but after graduating from high school I fell in love with skateboarding and gymnastics. I moved to Prague in 2011 to study physical education and sport at Charles University. I got my master’s degree in 2017 and now I continue my studies as Ph.D. candidate in the field of Kinanthropology. My research is focused on the use of rest periods in jump training.

In 2013 I got a job as youth strength and conditioning coach in professional basketball club USK Prague. Working for USK Prague was priceless experience which helped me to develop my coaching skills. For 6 years I was responsible for design and execution of strength and conditioning programs as well as participated in post-injury rehabilitation process of professional and youth players. Since 2018 I am working as strength and conditioning coach with the under-17 and under-18 men national basketball teams of Czech Republic.

I am proud to be a part of Advance Training since 2017 where the team of likeminded coaches and therapists of different backgrounds are putting their skills together to help people achieve their health and performance goals.

“I had the opportunity to work with Tino regularly on a professional level for more than 2 years. Workouts are meaningful and elaborated into detail. The important thing is that for each exercise I was told what its goal is and what exactly to be aware of in terms of overload or risk of injury. I appreciate the cooperation very much and I strongly recommend it to everyone! The results will appear after hard and consistent work.”
