young Karel with tigerAt an early age, he was attracted to the outdoors. He took every opportunity to explore the jungles of Indonesia and mountains of Vermont, where he was raised. The sudden heart attack, that took his father's life, left a lasting impression on him. He devoted his studies to Physical Education and Eastern Philosophy. His coaching experience started with the Army's ski team, at the US Military Academy at West Point. Years later, he continued coaching at Green Mountain Valley School in Vermont during the winters, and the National Chilean woman’s Ski Team at LaParva in the summers.

In the early 1970's, a small Vermont vitamin company was started. Karel became one of their top nutritional consultants and salesman. Today, Da Vinci Labs, a division of Food Science Corp, is one of the largest in the world. In 1996, Karel's passion for fitness became a full-time pursuit. He was a Personal Training Director for one of the nation's top health clubs.

He has received numerous "Excellence in Service" awards as a PT Director and Trainer. He was featured on Channel 7 ABC's "Forever Young" segment. Karel's dedication has made him very popular with personal trainers and private clients.

He can be found biking up Mt. Diablo, skiing at Alpine Meadows or maybe windsurfing at the Delta with clients or just for fun. He trains to be fit and healthy……not for the looks……not for the money……. but for his wife, Francel and young daughter, SARAH.
