My name is Vika and I run my personal training business, called Vika Fitness Coaching, in Newcastle upon Tyne. My main sport for many years (since teenage years to 2016) was competitive Olympic weightlifting.
In the past, I competed and won a silver medal in the Olympic Weightlifting U35’s (-58kg) Championships, in 2016, I won a Gold medal (U35’s; -58kg) and an Absolute Trophy in European Weightlifting Games, in France.
In 2016, I took up bodybuilding (bikini fitness) and I’m now going from strength to strength in preparing myself and winning competitions.
I used to be a secondary PE teacher, gymnastics and trampolining coach, fitness & weightlifting courses tutor / examiner / assessor, I worked as an fitness coach for various sports within National Governing Bodies (gymnastics, rowing, sprinting, track and field) and continue to work as a strength and conditioning coach.
I train and coach athletes, men, women, athletes, children from 9 years of age and, of course, I practice what I preach, daily.
All of my up-to-date professional qualifications can be viewed here.
In 2017, I started MSc degree in Nutritional Science and upon competition, I am hoping to do a PhD in Nutritional Science in 2019.
“We all start something at some point in our lives. I’ve been training myself and others since 1995 and with vast experience, I have a lot to offer to anyone who never exercised and equally, to someone with a vast training experience.
My clients range from professional to amateur athletes, celebrities to busy mothers, doctors & surgeons to children (9 years of age and up), from British Army personnel based in to wheelchair-users.
I coach all aspects of personal fitness training, from general and to sport-specific fitness, which include:
Bodybuilding, bikini fitness and beach body training;
Strength and Conditioning for sports-specific purposes;
Injury prevention and post-injury (or surgery) rehabilitation;
Weight management and body composition alteration through diet and exercise.”
Training with me is progressive, super fun and effective, much like these jumps! Call me today, you will NOT regret it.
