Welcome to Vika Fitness Coaching!
My name is Vika, and I was born in the USSR.
My love for Olympic Weightlifting, grows every day, and I strive to achieve more and more in my sport; l and of course, win more and more medals!
I come from a sports science & coaching background (Honours Degree in Applied Sports Science with Coaching from the University of Northumbria and Secondary PE teaching).
I work a lot with children and young athletes, and I truly love it.
I worked as a Strength and Conditioning Coach and liased with various sporting organisations, where my role was to assess, correct, and strengthen grassroot and talented and gifted athletes for various Governing Bodies, such as English Institute of Sport, British Rowing, British Gymnastics, and sport clubs and athletes from Judo, Trampolining clubs, Benfield Gymnastics and Newcastle United Football Foundation.
For the past 6 years, I was contracted by British Weight Lifting, to tutor and assessed their aspiring coaches. I am, one of three, UKCC L3 assessors and tutors, in the UK.
I am passionate about transferring knowledge to my clients and athletes. As a competitive athlete, I know how hard it is to be disciplined, focused and motivated. I share these principles with anyone I work with.
Being a wife, and full-time mother-of-three children, I perfectly understand the pressures and difficulty in trying to find the time and energy to exercise…. In my opinion, I think that sometimes in life you just have to be a little bit selfish, and it’s always good to find time to allocate to yourself, no matter what life throws at us.
After training, the endorphins (hormones) flood our system and make us feel good, which then has a direct positive impact on those who are around us. After all, it is all about finding that perfect equilibrium in life that makes everyone happy.
This is why, I strongly advise that daily exercise, and it is important “treat” for the body, as exercise really does wonders! After all, we eat daily, and we MUST move daily too.
If you would like to consult with me on any training-related issue, please do get in touch, I’ll be happy to help.
