What is it, IN YOU, that wants to move?
On this page you will find how you can work with me through the different services I offer.
1. Fighting Monkey Practice Coaching
The physical training and practices are based on Fighting Monkey Research & Practice where I am one of the few instructors under the guidance of Jozef Frucek and Linda Kapetanea. FM practice will help you to improve your posture, interconnect your whole body to a remarkable degree, and awaken a sense of aliveness and playfulness in your body and bodily expression through myriad movement situations.
2. Vegetative Training (VGT)
One of my clients describes it as “allowing.” Through the method of VGT I will guide you, at your own pace, to deeply experience your own body and its self-healing capacity it carries. Through simple movements and breathing practices you will understand how at all times your whole being is trying to communicate something and give intuitive direction. Read more here.
3. “The Process”
“The Process” is the most complete 1-on-1 guidance I offer. The trajectory of this way of working together consists of an initial intake conversation followed by 10 hours together spread in a period of one to three months. Sessions are tailored to your aims, needs and observations. You will explore physical practices and training, body work, observational exercises, feedback moments over coffee and recommended texts and resources in relation to the subjects we discuss and your personal questions and interests. Read more on The Process page.
4. Fighting Monkey (FM) Online Coaching
Fighting Monkey online coaching is purely online and is aimed towards the individual who wants to dive deep in their journey of movement practice through the form of 10 individual lessons through Skype and e-mail follow-up. The training is organised through FM for which I am an instructor. To learn more about FM this video is the great introduction. The training includes:
videos, tests and literature you will study and work on.
reviews of what you have worked on through mail and bi-monthly to weekly Skype
organising and re-ordering training and lessons depending on your needs
questionaries, tasks to complete and studies.

Although I do not want to spoil your expectations too much with stories of others, for some it is helpful to read about others experiences.
“Vegetative Training taught me how to slow my life down on and off of the court.” - Codi, professional basketball player
“Bewegen is een middel geen doel. Een zielsverwantschap was duidelijk; en van daaruit kon je de 'Formats' toepassen als middel en zelfs de ontbrekende dimensie in mijn praktijk als ondernemerscoach.” - Jan, business coach
“Olivier has introduced many new concepts to me, far beyond what the mainstream fitness community provides.” - Simmy Tan, photographer and proud mom
“I had a VGT session with Olivier and that changed everything for me and my perspective on the body.” - Mads, elite runner
“I like that it is not Olivier who tells me what to do. Yes he instruct, but the movements come from within and with it freedom. It is hard to explain in words. It is something that one must experience in one's own body.” - Thomas, physiotherapist
“Of all the therapies/healing modalities I've worked with, VGT has had the most immediate and effective results in the quality of my daily life. I'm grateful to have found it and you." - Ananda
“This is good stuff! I totally did not expect my body could do this!" - Tom, physiotherapist
