“You need to train not just hard but smart as well.”
Firstly, you need to understand that regeneration, nutrition and exercising are equally important, thus we need to focus on creating balance between these three elements.
A very controversial and often emotional topic indeed. First of all, we need to accept the fact that everyone is different with different needs, that’s the reason why one type of eating works for someone and not for others. However, we have similarities as well, common rules that work for everyone.
I believe that healthy eating is not really about the quantity but mainly the quality of your food.
- Drink water (min. 2l/day) and nothing else!
- Use milk alternatives (no dairy and animal milk products)!
- Eat brown rice or basmati rice instead of white rice!
- The challenge…no sugar or refined carbohydrates!
- The quality of your food should be high.
- Alcohol just very rarely! It is a must if you are serious about your health.

I believe that everything in life is about polarity (Yin and Yang). As a former professional athlete I do believe in hard work. However, to be able to train hard we all need a healthy and relaxed body in perfect condition.
My checklist is simple:
- Sleep in total darkness.
- Don’t use any electronic devices at least 30 minutes before going to bed, and try to switch off the WiFi (at least on your phone).
- Do myofascial releasing before your session, plus visualise the exercises beforehand.
- During the class check your breathing, don’t stress.
- Always do a gentle ease up routine after your training session.
- If you are a professional athlete with at least 10 sessions/week, you might find useful the use of different cooling methods after a heavy session.
“The progress I have made under Attila’s tutelage has truly surprised me.” – Sev
Quality always comes first, no more discussion necessary about this. There is a reason why every world class athlete has a coach, and a training plan for years. You need to be systematic to be able to progress constantly without turnovers.
I completely disagree with the current trend to follow famous athletes training routine. Have you considered that to be able to do those spectacular exercises, it takes years and years of practice?
How is it possible that people who start coming to the gym, often experiencing knee, lower back and shoulder problems they never experienced before. It is simple, you need to build up your body step by step, otherwise it will collapse.
You won’t be able to drive a Formula 1 car, without practising on a normal car, then progress onto a sports car. Fitness is about health that you should enjoy, so please train smart!
Here is a couple of tips:
- Always practice the 6+1 basic exercises (or a variation of those): Squat, Lunge, Push, Pull, Twist, Bend, and Walk.
- Use your body first, resistance later.
- Use every direction if possible: up/down; front/back; right/left and twist/rotation.
- If you feel pain in your joints, change your position or the exercise. Pain is a signal that something is going wrong, don’t force it.
- Check your alignment, and don’t be shy to seek for help if necessary.
We all come from a different background, and I know that is very difficult to trust in someone in a world of fake promises. Self-made experts, celebrity diets, magic supplements and “ultimate” training concepts come and go, but believe me, no one and nothing will be able to foul you ever in your life, if you know what to do, how to do it, and you understand why you do it.
“I found very clever the way that Attila explains why and how to do an exercise. He is very hard but very fair, and he helps me to always train at my best.” – James
