MaksFit helps you achieve your goals, let them be health or competition oriented. Your journey to the peak state of body and mind is just a click away

MaksFit was founded by Maks Frančeškin, an enthusiast in finding the excellence in motion. 8 years in a row a member of Slovenian national teams in wildwater and flatwater canoeing Maks is an experienced athlete with many high class international successes: 4 time world champion World cup medals European championships medals Maks studied at Faculty of sport (University of Ljubljana) majoring in canoeing and fitness and is writting a thesis on biomechanic of a basic paddling stroke in k1. Maks is coaching youth wildwater paddlers in KK Simon, is writting the plan of the training of some of the best USA wildwater paddlers conditioning coaching 3 time olympian, multiple European champion and world championship medalist Simon Hočevar was assisting the head coach of Slovenian national junior flatwater sprint team helped rehabbing cases of hernia, shoulder and back injuries.

Mission: MaksFit is not your typical coaching site. We dont believe in effectivenes and results of bootcamp-like type of workuouts. Individual trainings are our cup of tea. Every individual is different. Proffesional athletes cant train the same way as full-time job clients are training. Someone whose job makes him sit 8 hours a day surely needs a different workout than a postman who works on his feet the whole day. Rehabbing back injuries commands a totally different approach than rehabbing a knee injury. We are not here to yell at you during trainings. We arent there to motivate you during an effort. You need to be motivated to achieve the wanted results. You dont have to like the pain, the suffering, you should only love the end result. We can help find your motivation before we start working together, but then its up to you to embrace the results enough to endure the pain and lack of comfort during our process. Get comfortable being uncomfortable. Our prices are not set. Instead of that we invite you to tell us how much you value our guidance/help after 3 free workouts. That way we get the always wanted feedback and you get to empiricly set the value your health/result has to you.

Aktualni svetovni prvak: Od tega se ne da živeti #video

Welcome to Slovenija oziroma ni pomembmo kdo ali kaj si, pomembno je koga poznas.
Smešnice. Simon Oven, slovenski kajakaš na divjih vodah, je lani v klasičnem spustu v Švici osvojil naslov svetovnega prvaka, kar do zdaj ni uspelo še nobenemu tekmovalcu v samostojni Sloveniji, niti v nekdanji Jugoslaviji. Odlični slovenski tekmovalec se danes spogleduje s koncem kariere, saj kot pravi,...

The Benefits of No Drinking For Better Performance | TrainingPeaks

A beer or a bit of wine are surely beneficial, are they not?
#beeriskerosine ;) Whether it be giving up sugar, alcohol, or gluten, there's something to be said for trying it first. A physician and IRONMAN Certified Coach reports on his most recent group experiment: abstaining from alcohol in the pursuit of better performance.

All conditions are good conditions to get better

7. Performing Olympic lifts is dangerous and does not improve performance

This week on:

It has happened to me quite a few times that a person asked (with a sense of pity) me why am I incorporating a deadlift, front squat or a snatch in my gym training routine – »but you are a kayak paddler, you do not need strong legs, you need to do a lot of excercises on the stability ball to gain some balance«. I normally do not really bother with this kinds of questions though. The benefits of complex explosive excercises are so vast, that ignoring this kinds of lifts would be very shortsighted. I will discuss that not everyone should incorporate olympic lifts in their strength training,but if you can, do it. That is a myth that has been bugging me for such a long time that I was looking forward to write about. It has happened to me quite a few times that a person asked (with a sense of pity) me why am …

Kayak Sport Injuries

Our allaround athlete Sara Seprenyi is doing a huge research on prevalence and causes of injuries in flatwatwer and wildwater kayak. Check it out and participate! Dear Filler! My name is Sara Seprenyi and I'm a sportmeneger student of the University of Pécs.I raced 15 years on flatwater and 1 year ago I switched to whitewater. This questionnaire is important for my diplom, that I wrote about the kayak injuries. The filling is absolutly anonymous and only surv...


This week about coach`s obssesion with resistance bands and their effect on (non) prevention of shoulder injuries.

"Now, returning to the resistance band excercises. Are they really comparable with the aformentioned excercises? Is the range of motion really challenged? Does the core need to significantly participate in movement? I am paddling for a long time, without any shoulder injury problems and i pick up a resistance band three times a year. The alternative excercises are just so much better and more effective. But you might break some sweat doing them" This time only one myth presented. Wrote about the all so mighty resistance band and it`s role in (not) preventing shoulder injuries. Enjoy. ________________________________________________________…

BUSTING 10 MYTHS OF STRENGTH TRAINING IN KAYAK – Myth 3 and 4 – too specific resistance training or not specific enough?

New blog post @
Talking about too specific resistance training. And the one not specific enough.
Excerpt from the post:

"If you go too specific, you are severly limiting yourself when it comes to specific skill level. Do not worry about trying to recreate your sport in your resistance training. Get strong and hone your specific skills separately, but at the same time."

Feedback appreciated :) So, continiuing with myth 3 and 4. Im writting about the desire to make the resistance training very kayak specific, and what flaws there are. I also touch the “pushups and pullups are all i …

BUSTING 10 MYTHS OF STRENGTH TRAINING IN KAYAK – myth 1 and 2 – resistance training is making you slower, you need to move resistance fast to become explosive


This series of posts have been coming a long time. The content has been debated many times, but i decided to put it "on paper". I am busting the myths and old dogmas connected to resistance training in kayak, both flatwater and wildwater. I will post five parts in the next weeks. Welcome to MaksFit !!

Every comment and feedback is more than welcome, both here or at MaksFit site :) As a high level kayak and canoe athlete I have been part of/have seen many different training philsophies/systems.. Some insist on certain priorities, while others build on totally different aspect…
