Doctor of Medicine, Running, Mountaineering
Thomas’ background as a high-performing athlete, a coach, and a doctor gives his athletes a unique advantage. His expertise is coaching athletes with special medical conditions.
Thomas combines his knowledge as a Doctor of Medicine, thesis in endurance sports, rehab and sports medicine specialist, and a (very) fast mountain runner in helping athletes with special questions and medical conditions for a greater adaptation to training. He studied medicine in Vienna, Austria. He was always coaching and sharing his knowledge with runners, cyclists, and SkiMo racers, besides studying/working and focusing on his training and racing.
His competitive sport growing up was running. He raced marathons, track, and XC but was always best in mountain races. He competed in the world mountain running championships with the Austrian national team three times. He stopped racing in 2016 to set his attention on FKTs. He puts his fitness on moving light and fast in the mountains.
Thomas grew up in the mountains of Vorarlberg in the west of Austria. Growing up, he was always skiing, climbing, hiking, and running.
