Our mission:

Certification is a very important milestone on my journey from physiology lab to athletes. In the year 2023 I want to develop an educational platform for education in sports physiology, focusing on the transfer of information into practice, using not only the Moxy monitor, but also other diagnostic and/or training tools such as spiroergometric analysis, resistance and endurance respiratory training devices, methods working on the principle of local hypoxia and hypercapnia (BFR – Blood Flow Restriction) or methods working with S-nitrosohemoglobin (SNO-Hb) levels. In the future, I would like to offer coaches and athletes the possibility of mentorship or long-term cooperation not only in performance testing, but especially in increasing the physiological limitations of their performance.

Upside Strength

I am a Strength and Conditioning Coach, Personal Trainer, Podcast Host and Performance Consultant. I am based in Nyon, Switzerland where I offer private coaching, performance/physiological testing (Moxy), physical preparation and consulting services. I also write individualized programs for local and remote clients.

As a personal trainer, I have worked primarily in private and semi-private setting since 2014. I work with beginner as well as with advanced clients all, working toward different goals (weight loss, muscle and strength gain, endurance, etc…).

As a physical preparation coach, I work with the Nyon Rugby Club as well as with the National Rugby Academy (U16-20 Swiss). I’m in charge of planning, coaching and developing all the different physical qualities required to excel in the sport. Sprint training, jumps & plyos, power development, strength training, conditioning and grappling form the basis for most of my work.

As a podcast host, I aim to share relevant and practical information around fitness, strength & conditioning and health in both french and english while exchanging with other professionals on the space.

As a performance consultant, i have worked with several regional and national level sports teams to provide specific recommendations to coaches and athletes primarily around topics such as Moxy Monitor testing/monitoring, physiological limitations, and respiratory assessment/training.

If you would like to know more about me, feel free to send me a private message – I’m always open for a good conversation.
