You don’t present yourself as a classic mental coach, but you call yourself a sports coach. What can I imagine under that?
Sporthacking is a holistic approach that connects the basic pillars of success and satisfaction. Training, diet, regeneration and psyche. Thanks to the interconnection of individual areas, one is able to push one’s boundaries and reach a new level. I used to focus on one area, but then I connected everything into one whole and began to watch myself and my clients move much faster, better and more efficiently.
How is your cooperation with clients? What exactly to them maybe you help?
I’m more of their guide and partner. I teach them to understand their physical and mental body, to know who they are and where they are going, how to work with fears, emotions, challenges and how to maximize success in what they do and at the same time be as satisfied and happy as possible. what they do. But I also help them with better sleep, breathing techniques, but also with compiling a menu.
Vít Schlesinger helps top athletes, but also ordinary people.
You have many Czech athletes in “your stable”. Do you think they have bad eating habits?
I wouldn’t say it’s completely bad, but the problem is the poor quality of the food they consume.
What do you mean specifically?
Some athletes still eat a lot of poor quality carbohydrates, their diet lacks minerals and healthy fats. Therefore, I often recommend that the first thing be discarded empty and pro-inflammatory foods, such as pastries or processed foods, and instead include olive oil, chia seeds or avocados. But the timing of meals is also important. Many give themselves bad things at the wrong time.
A tailor is not a new canola. He does flicker on purpose
You have been cooperating for some time with the great talent of Czech football and quite possibly the future captain of the Prague Sparta, Ladislav Krejčí. He has a reputation on the pitch, what is he like in private?
Lada is a very kind, smart and thoughtful boy. The public rates him on some lawns, but he knows he’s exaggerated and crossed the line. There is no need to explain it to him. He realizes his mistakes immediately, and he always gets a lens from his father. But he often goes beyond that boundary.
By sometimes whistling lightly, he abrades his own boundaries and realizes his strengths. He knows very well that if he wasn’t that tough, he wouldn’t be himself. He would be a good ordinary player. But he doesn’t want that. He knows he’s taking a risk, but he’s learning to handle it mentally.

Precisely because of his flashy on the lawns and aggressive play, Krejčí is often compared to the legendary spartan Tomáš Řepka. What do you think about it?
