Thanks to Training for Acro I’m the strongest and most flexible I’ve ever been (even as a former gymnast and avid yogi). I’ve seen changes and improvements beyond what I ever imagined and surprisingly fast – including doing press to handstands! Tudor’s expertise and passion are obvious and infectious; working with him is a pleasure and motivates you to keep pushing yourself to the next level. I’d recommend Training for Acro without a moment’s hesitation.

Tudor is a true tutor, his advice, recommendations and training methods as well as training plans are straight forward and adapt perfectly to the state of the individual he is training. Very understanding and a good listener as well as very flexible in regard to goals and needs. This is not some other training app or someone putting some kind of method onto someone but a true mentor who helps you develop, understand and advance your body to new goals. Training with him means you are the centre of attention and growth: An amazing experience.

I’ve been working towards a Press to Handstand for a fair amount of time. Longer than most who do, it seemed.
I was diligent and always making progress, but somehow always feeling like I was missing clear direction and specificity.
Tudor helped me find exactly that – always adapting and refining along the way. I love his trainings and structure, I love the way he listens and adjusts.
Finding my first press from the floor felt incredibly satisfying. Even at this point knowing it’s simply one more step – one should celebrate progress.
For any acro-related goal, without question he will help your way there. Thank you Tudor for your work.
