gregav@formanatura.si

Grega entered the world of sports already in primary school when he decided to live and grow through the rhythms of Latin-American and standard dancing tunes. For a whole decade, he attended dancing competitions where he gained numerous awards at home and abroad. Later on, he put his dancing shoes aside and dedicated his time to fitness. He tried different principles of gym as he believes that such experience is most relevant and worth having. Occasional injuries as well as enviable good results have led him through the labyrinth of the fitness industry to the acknowledgement that he strongly believes in the functionality of one’s body. He does not care about the modern trends and traps of today’s way of life as he cares much more about healthy and balanced lifestyle.

As his passion for dancing has never really died, he has subsequently joined fitness and dancing, and has thus led more or less all kinds of workouts we can see in many gyms and studios. His STEP workouts (TNZ, SHAPE step, latino, etc.), BODY&MIND workouts (yoga, pilates, balance) and functional trainings (bootcamp, crossfit, Hiit) are all known to have elements of his energy and are chilled with his professional and pretty merciless approach to training.

Grega sees his mission in making people aware about healthy lifestyle. He believes in personal growth and so he never stops looking for new challenges and chances to offer a quality training area and facilities, and professional approach to his clients and co-workers. He believes that experience and continuous educational trainings are the key to success. In recent years, he’s been putting more emphasis on personal trainings and sessions in smaller groups, and has so been looking for chances to help each individual client feeling better.

Grega is most happy and feels inspired when his clients reach their personal goals and he finds his motivation in many overcome diagnoses and smiles on their faces. He sources his energy and enthusiasm in the great team of professional co-workers of FormaNatura.

Motto: Don’t compete and compare yourself with others; your body is unique! It is the temple in which you live and your duty is to take care of it the best you can.

grega@formanatura.si

The love of sports and exercise has been a part of Grega's childhood. His first contact with competitive sports was rowing on calm waters, to which he devoted half of his elementary school years. Spinal problems forced him to abandon competitive sports and, for years, he devoted himself primarily to recreational martial arts, including karate and Taekwon-do. After high school, he continued his studies at the Faculty of Sport, majoring in Sport Coaching - Alpine Skiing, where he increasingly noticed and began to understand the gap between competitive sports and the health movement. Years of amateur fitness, the desire to eliminate problems with his own spine, and the fact that he likes to work with people led him to decide to try to help others through exercise, professional counseling and the right approach.

Grega has a national FZS license - fitness instructor, and with his experience in post-surgery rehabilitation and post-rehabilitation, he has helped many with their joint and spine problems over the years. He has experience in running small training groups and functional trainings, and devotes most of his time to personal coaching. The majority of Grega's clients are middle-aged women, and because of his approach and experience, in recent years he has also been entrusted by an increasingly elderly population whose goal is primarily to improve and maintain a healthy and vital body during the later years of life.

He advocates for the professional and tailored approach to the individual, and sees the key to success in moderation, patience and connection. If we want to make a change, says Grega, we must make the decision first and put ourselves first!

luka@formanatura.si

Luka started his sport career in his younger years by actively playing basketball. The beginnings of his sporting career go back to elementary school, where he began to play basketball. As a member of BC Lastovka and later BC Helios, he has performed in various competitions, both at home and abroad. Competing in sports through high school and college, gave him a broader perspective on the training process, as he began to face injuries that are practically inevitable in competitive sports. Increasingly interested in the workings of the human body, he graduated from the NCSF Personal Trainer License (AFP). After graduation he joined the personal trainers team and started working at various fitness centers.

In almost four years he worked in the network of training centers, conducting personal trainings, group trainings, leading functional group workouts (Bootcamp, HIIT, etc.), training for the elderly, running school, and also assisted with fitness training at the training center. As part of the social group, he gave lectures on nutrition and exercise and also transferred his knowledge as a mentor to new coaches. He has also shared his experience at several conventions.

He is aware that the field of personal coaching is changing rapidly and coaches have a great responsibility for the health and safety of trainees, so he devotes a great deal of time to self-education. The field of fitness and functional training is not the same as it was ten years ago, so he believes that up-to-date training is of paramount importance. In his work, he focuses on quality movement patterns and training that is individually tailored to the individual, his needs and desires.

In his mission, he is motivated by all satisfied employees and people who he helped in one way or another. The motto that has been following for a long time is that every change requires willpower and time, and no shortcut leads to the goal. So don't wait for the right moment. Create it yourself and get started now!

Niko is a Master of Pharmacy and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. At a young age he used to play tennis, golf, and as a student he fell in love with basketball. Throughout his life he has been very active in sports. Aat the beginning of his studies of pharmacy and a more thorough understanding of the functioning of the human body, he began to intensively deal with the importance of healthy eating and other beneficial habits in the prevention of disease.

Initially, this was driven entirely by his own interests in finding a healthy lifestyle, and was further encouraged by the exploration of the field that scientifically unsubstantiated nutrition information in humans often causes great confusion. He earned his certification as a Nutrition Advisor following the well-known Precision nutrition program, which has helped more than 200,000 people achieve life-changing changes with simple habits (the program's founder, Dr. John Berardi, is a nutrition consultant for companies like Nike, Apple, and The New York Times).

All those experiences gave her greater touch by working with people. After fifteen years of deepening and widening her knowledge about massage she still finds her motivation in pleasuring her clients.
