Ognjen Bozic, MAM- Conditioning Lab founder, is a Martial Arts Master, Biomechanics Specialist at The Rugby High-Performance Centre, Amatuer Trail Runner, and Yoga enthusiast.
Ognjen was 5 times National champion in Taekwondo both in his home country of former Yugoslavia and later, in South Africa. He has been practicing Taekwondo for 30 years and is a registered 5th DAN Black Belt through Kukkiwon (Taekwondo World Headquarters) in Korea.
In 1995 to compliment his Taekwondo training, Ognjen started practicing Yoga, exploring breath techniques and a different concept of flexibility. This led to a broadening of his knowledge and discovering Pilates Precision Training, which took Ognjen further in the understanding of Biomechanics.
Ognjen then went on to receive a diploma in Sports Science and Body Movement in 2010 through HFPA, he then started his career as a Personal Trainer at Virgin Active, expanding on his studies and continuing with his passion in the Sports and Fitness industry.
In 2012 he took his enthusiasm for Yoga further by becoming a certified instructor through Trifocus Fitness Academy.
It was in 2013, when Ognjen took things to an extreme when he broke the World Record in a kick punch marathon (24 hours 30 minutes) to test/challenge his physical and mental strength and understanding of specific Sports Science Training.
Through his passion, practice and understanding of the various disciplines, in 2014, Ognjen started to develop his own exercises. As many of his clients are Sportspeople (Martial Artists, Trail Runners, Cyclists, Dancers and Rugby players), he was particularly interested in injury prevention and optimal Sports performance. As a result he began developing his system of Prehab integrating it into his client's Strength and Conditioning progammes.
This new format of training yielded great results not only for himself but for his clients as well.
Ognjen joined the coaching team at The Rugby High-Performance Centre as a Biomechanics Specialist in January 2016.
Ognjen continues to explore and hone his training format, deriving and developing his exercises from the combined philosophies of the various disciplines he studies and practices, expanding upon them, and has created the MAM-CONDITIONING training and Prehab Method.
