Bogdan Popa

Background : Bogdan completed his sports massage diploma at Essentials for Health, London.

• Level 5 BTEC Professional Diploma in Sports Massage and Treatments

“Since I was a small boy I had a passion for sports. I played football at a local club for four years and after high school I decided to continue my studies at University of Physical Education and Sports. Being a sport student I was able to play all kind of sports, from volleyball to table tennis. Whilst playing these sports it made me understand the importance of avoiding injuries and taking consideration of the strain it can have on our bodies. Therefore, how we can reduce it with massage, stretching and other techniques.

While studying for my Masters I had the opportunity to be a volunteer in a Neuropediatrics Hospital were I have learned a great deal about rehabilitation exercises. During his studies Bogdan worked as a lifeguard in the U.S.A, a job that I enjoyed very much.”

Bogdan has worked in so many other majors and always returned to the sports industry for which he has a great passion. At the moment, Bogdan’s fitness regime includes calisthenics and some strength training, plus swimming and skiing. Bogdan believes that life is too short to find excuses or let fears control our lives and he invites everyone to stop finding excuses and challenge their fears.
