MY TRAINER: MARKUS ZIEGLER

MY TRAINER: MARKUS ZIEGLER

Markus has been training me since June 2017 for a methodical training system based on swim competitive sports. It is exactly through these optimized contrast methods and the permanent corrections that I learn faster the complex movements of the swimming sport. In our opinion, the communication between trainer and trainee is essential for our training success. We have succeeded in bringing a purposeful, increasingly demanding training together with a healthy dose of fun! My first personal successes confirm the effectiveness of the method of Markus Ziegler.

Markus Ziegler was a nationally successful athlete in Austria and a coach for 15 years before getting an education as a performance mindset coach at the Performance Mindset Academy in Salzburg, Austria. He also received education at the Federal Academy for Sports in Graz, Austria. He obtained additional diplomas in sport psychology, high performance and communication.

Markus is a consultant for professional and Olympic athletes, teams and federations. Markus Ziegler and Markus Rogan co-facilitate workshops in the United States and in Europe.

"Martina, I am so grateful to you that you have accompanied me through all these demanding operations before surgery and in the operating room." You have actively laid hands and even had to hold with full force against the Latissimus Dorsi, my strongest muscle for my swimming world record attempt. An incredibly beautiful sign of trust for us both. Thank you.
