Who Am I?

My name is Marian and I am the founder of Brain and Body Trainer, previously called Myofit.

Why do I do what I do?


When I was five years old, my father introduced me to ice hockey. Physical exercise and sport became an integral part of my life since then, but I had to learn some lessons very quickly:

  • Discipline.
  • Never give up.
  • Punctuality is king.
  • Take care of my body.
  • Work with and for others.
  • Be supportive and respectful.
  • Work hard to accomplish my goals.
  • Deal with losses and disappointments.
  • Waking up at 5 am to be on time for training.
  • An ice rink is a very painful place for five years old.
  • It does take long hours of practice to achieve any goal.

After ten years of an ice fun, at age 15, I found passion in weightlifting and later in bodybuilding. This is what I’ve learned:

  • It’s addictive.
  • No pain, no gain.
  • Form over weight.
  • Exercise is easy part.
  • Food is more than fuel.
  • More plates = more dates.
  • Abs are made in the kitchen.
  • Consistency above everything.
  • Last reps are the most important.
  • Chicken and rice are so bloody boring.
  • Look after your body. It will look after you.
  • Do whatever makes you happy and work hard.

My physiotherapy background and experience. I completed a Physiotherapy degree in Slovakia and worked as a Physio assistant at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. What did I learn?

  • Knowledge is gold.
  • Health is everything.
  • Anatomy can be exciting.
  • Helping others is satisfying.
  • All I have studied is beneficial.
  • Fundamentals of the physiology.
  • Every person is completely unique.
  • Doctors are angels with stethoscopes.
  • Work with people with lack of motivation.
  • Immobility will kill you; the movement is life.
  • Anybody can accomplish extraordinary things.

I started working as a personal trainer about eight years ago. What did I learn on my journey so far?

  • I love what I do!
  • Listening is crucial.
  • Learning never stops.
  • Habits shape the future.
  • Mindset underpins success.
  • Fitness is more than a six-pack.
  • Some people don’t enjoy exercise.
  • Difficult clients taught me the most.
  • Not everybody wants to be super lean.
  • I have the ability to change someone’s life.
  • Planning, accountability, and incentives deliver.
  • Get people in shape is different from being in shape.
