Elvis Tadlanek is a calisthenics athlete and trainer, musician, and writer.
At the age of 12 he started learning martial arts, which sparked a lifelong obsession with health and fitness. In the following years he attended lessons in Karate, Aikido, Kung Fu and Tai Chi, only to find his own ways and methods.
His innate curiosity and interest in martial arts also led him to research nutrition, various training methods, including Progressive Calisthenics, Chi Kung, the Wim Hof Method, as well as eastern philosophies and spirituality.
“Absorb what is useful, discard what is not and add what is uniquely yours.”Bruce Lee
This has become one of his core principals, under which he to this day expands his knowledge in various subjects and shares it with others.
After leaving university, he decided to move from Slovakia to pursue a better life in the United Kingdom, only to find himself, half a year later, 20 kilograms overweight, depressed and on the verge of an eating disorder.
In the following 5 years he managed to overcome all of these obstacles by focusing on Calisthenics and proper nutrition. Once he received his certification, he began working as a calisthenics trainer in gyms and in late 2019 he performed 2000 pull ups in 6.5 hours to raise awareness for World Mental Health Day.
More recently he moved to Northern Sweden to become physically more resilient, publish his first science-fiction novel, write music and continue working on his podcast.
