“Trojan Workout is the safest way to keep getting stronger. It’s not about competing with others. It’s about you, how you feel, and what keeps you going. For me, my instructors at Heathclub Heijenoord, and for my students.
I have a long history of fighting at a high level. In those periods I demanded a lot from myself in a not so healthy way. If I would have known Trojan Workout back then, I would have had fewer injuries and more strength and health. I can’t change the past, so I focus on my Trojan Pose now, at the moment.
My most effective habit is daily training not longer than 30 minutes, 7 times a week. It’s easy to maintain for me, and it feels great! Every day just 30 minutes
For me, physical or mental strength means doing what feels good. Train often, not long!”
