“When you truly want something you will find a way. When you don’t you will find excuses”
Miha is a personal trainer, rehabilitation trainer and life coach in Munich and she is the CEO and founder of MPower Training Systems – a concept that stands for minimizing human suffering on Earth and maximizing human potential in all aspects of life. As an ex- bodybuilding and body fitness competitor, three times IFBB national champion, fitness model and later on, as an amateur kickboxer and powerlifter, Miha has 20 years of vast experience in the field of professional sports.
Her difficult childhood motivated her to use movement as a therapy in difficult moments and sports became a very important part of her life. She grew up watching other people from similar backgrounds turning to drugs and alcohol. She turned to sports instead and so she became fascinated with the human body from a very young age. She studied Business Administration and worked for many years in the corporate world before she decided to follow her true passion and become a personal trainer.
“Problems are life’s greatest gift. They come to teach you what is important in life”
She was 21 years old when she was left completely disabled by a lower back injury and she spent about 7 years in excruciating pain trying to find a solution for her problem. She looked for answers for years before she finally found a doctor in Italy who gave her a diagnosis. She was diagnosed with spine and head instability coming from a dislocated sacrum that threw her entire spine and body out of balance. Her spine ligaments were affected too and she developed chronic full body instability as a result.
Basic activities like walking, breathing, eating and sitting were causing excruciating pain and made her doubt her ability to come back. Since her health problem went unrecognized by the doctors for so long she started developing neurological symptoms, breathing difficulties, she got 9 other dislocated vertebrae in her spine, countless atrophied muscles and eventually she was left in a wheelchair unable to walk by herself.
“If you are going through hell keep going. That is the greatest motivation to never give up”
Despite having gone through many unsuccessful therapies she never gave up hope. She decided to take the matter into her own hands and she spent many years studying various rehabilitation methods, anatomy, human biomechanics, various rehabilitation principles and ended up developing a new therapy to fix her body. When no doctor believed in her recovery in the years 2018 she made an amazing comeback from a spinal injury that almost crippled her for life and she promised to help others do the same.
By following clear core values in her life and by serving as a role model herself, she is committed to help other people get healthy again and she is spreading the word on the importance of movement and a healthy lifestyle and their connection to chronic pain and disease. She is hoping to inspire more people to take the responsibility for their own health and realize that the quality of life that we get to experience in life is deeply connected to our habits and lifestyles. This is how the MPower concept was born.
“If there is no way, create one”
She is now recognized as a Personal Trainer, Rehabilitation Trainer, Posture Specialist, Life Coach and Fascia Researcher in her community and she is the creator of the first universal fascia program that will be soon available on the market. This program combines rehabilitation with sport performance principles and it has great power in helping people with chronic illnesses and those who want to prevent them by getting more quality of life and manage their conditions better.
“Power” is the state of your body in which it can perform at its best and when it is the healthiest. Power is a state of balance, energy and strength. Physical, mental and emotional health, just like oxygen, is fundamental to human life and for this reason, we always put it first. With this idea in mind and with her acquired knowledge and experience in sports and rehabilitation, Miha walks on a journey of changing people’s lives for the better and helping them become strong(er) versions of themselves in mind, body and soul.
