"From my own experience, I know that what is happening inside the head of an athlete has significant influence on his performance. I am even convinced that mental aspect has a greater importance than the physical one. Mentally tough athletes are more confident, good tempered and from the longer perspective, they are more successful in reaching their goals and at the same time they are able to enjoy this journey much more.
Every athlete is different and everyone reacts on the pressure, worries and expectations in a different way. So from my point of view, it is natural and even unnecessary to have somebody besides you that is able to help you with all those issues.
As I know Michal as an active athlete and perceptive person, I am sure he has all the preconditions for the professional and as well as right human approach in helping athletes to be more effective and to find the inner sources necessary for their success."
"After the 1st meeting, I was convinced that Michal is fully aware of the area of mental preparation of athletes. As a former active football player, he also personally understands what is happening inside the head of athletes before, during, as well as after the match. I believe Michal is the right choice - the right coach, especially for young athletes in order to help them achieve their goals and prepare them fully from the mental game perspective".

"I am very glad to work with Michal. Even after the input coaching session, I was leaving his office appropriately motivated. Michal is the right mental coach for me as he was also an active athlete. He exactly knows what I feel before, during and afther the match. Thanks to his sport experience and professional knowledge (understading), I receive understandable advice and recommendations. He is pointing me towards the only Truth, I am enjoying the game and have positive attitude and passion towards the hockey again. I use the inputs from our coaching in my professional as well as in my personal life".

“I have used Michal´s mental services in my preparation for a title fight in Ukraine. He has provided me plenty of useful information, mainly focused on concentration and relaxation. My confidence has also improved a lot. Michal´s advantage in the area of combat sports is obvious as he is also a skilled BJJ athlete, coach and MMA refree, so he can better understand what exactly is happening inside the head of a fighter".
Róbert Delič, professional MMA fighter and coach;
"Michal is a highly experienced teacher, coach and consultant, and now he has added the latest and most potent IMGCA mental game coaching approaches to his toolkit.
He will be able to build his business to a very high level in Slovakia. Michal has a very analytical mind, one that is adept at taking any issue his client presents, and devising a solution to it so the client can learn and perform to their potential.
With his sparkling personality and his sense of humor, I can see how his clients really enjoy their sessions and benefit from his coaching. Michal combines a coach's enthusiasm, a counselor's keen eye for detail and true compassion for his clients, so he can do everything possible to help them grow and succeed.
Michal will always take a systematic approach to extending his knowledge in the mental game field. His professionalism is very evident. I can see Michal becoming one of the top sport psychology providers in Slovakia and eventually even the leader in this field".
Bill Cole, MS, MA, Founder and President of IMGCA
"Eventhough I am mentally very tough, I was interested in working with the mental game coach. By coincidence, I have found that Michal is a certified mental game coach and I decided to use his coaching services. By using new approaches, Michal was able to discover further inner resources within me. I feel even better than before and I am ready to take any new challenges in my professional career of thai boxer and K1 fighter".
