Hi, I’m Matej. I’m the co-founder and owner of VigorGround, a facility that embodies a community intent on improving its athletic performance and longevity. I have been helping people from all walks of life improve their physical performance for over 12 years, and I have been increasingly involved in youth athlete development over the last 10 years, particularly in football. I have been fortunate to have worked with some world-class senior players who regularly play in elite competitions such as the Champions League and on national teams, and am currently serving as head of strength and conditioning at the academy level at NK Olimpija Ljubljana. My journey has taken me across the world and I have visited over 60 countries, which has allowed me to immerse myself in a multitude of cultures and languages. Thanks to the travel opportunities I have been blessed with, I am fluent in 6 languages and have used my passion for sports and movement, along with my curiosity, to create a series of mini-documentaries focusing on movement cultures around the world, which aim to bring physical development opportunities to those who are socially disadvantaged. My tenacity has guided me back into academia, and I am currently completing my Master’s degree (MSc) in Strength & Conditioning at St. Mary’s University in London.
