Hey, I’m Srdjan (forgive me for the lack of vowels).
24 25 year old kid-at-heart with a passion for the human body and I’m on a life-long journey to help people build better bodies and live better lives.
I’m a mechanical engineering graduate, a certified trainer, and a self-proclaimed writer.
I spend my days building 3D CAD models and my nights throwing around kettlebells, jumping heavy ropes, sprinting through the grass in my Vibrams, and writing articles that I hope will one day spark a change in the world.
I wasn’t passed along the greatest set of genetic coding and I sure as hell haven’t had the greatest luck when it comes to injuries. But what I do have is a deep-rooted love for the human body and all of its intricate components that, when functioning properly, allow us to live the life that we want.
I’ve always been hyperactive.
I played basketball for many years. I boxed competitively. I spent time training Muay Thai in Thailand. I trained hard for Triathlons (never ran any). And I spent hours in the gym lifting heavy objects.
I was addicted to movement.
But, ironically, I was also an engineering student and spent many hours in a tight cubicle with my ass glued to the chair and my head buried in a mountain of books.
And while I thought I was doing my body and my mind good, I was actually stirring up a deadly concoction of muscular imbalances, unhealthy tissues, and debilitating inflexibility that eventually led to multiple herniated discs in my lower back.
Those were some dark moments.
My days of training and competition were replaced with days of excruciating pain. I went from sparring with Muay Thai champions to struggling to get out of bed.
My life got literally turned upside down.
The little things that I once took for granted – like brushing my teeth or jumping into the shower – suddenly required immense effort and took every ounce of energy out of me.
The entire experience opened my eyes and made me realize just how important it is to take care of your health. To take care of your body. Without it we have nothing.
The experience made me more appreciative of this one incredible body that I was blessed with.
After those dark moments I promised myself that I would never go back to those days. I would never put my body through that pain again.
And I would do whatever it took to build a body that lasts.
So why Bloom to Fit?
With this blog, I want to be as transparent as possible with everything I do as I build myself a better body. My training, my nutritioning, my experiments – it will all be here on display for you to see and learn from.
The purpose of Bloom to Fit is to inspire individuals to make better choices for their health so they too can build a better body and do incredible things with their lives.
Individuals just like you.
Keep in mind that I am not a fitness expert by any means. I’m no guru. I do, however, have something of value to give – experience, passion and incredible drive to build something better. I’ve been there. I’ve put myself out there. I’ve been down in the trenches trying and testing different forms of training. I’ve tried and analyzed numerous nutrition strategies. I’ve tested numerous supplements. I’ve bought everything under the sun for soft tissue work.
But, most importantly, fitness is my passion.
The human body is my passion.
This is what I love and it is because of this deep-rooted passion that I’m always reading about new studies, flipping through anatomy books, testing new superfoods, asking experts lots of questions, and constantly learning about the wonders of the human body.
I’m always full of energy, always looking to learn, and never afraid of trying new things. I’m curious as hell (not always a good thing) and I live to experiment.
