Matej Hocevar on Microdosing Info, KPI’s and World Travel


Matej Hocevar is a guy I often refer to as the World’s Most Interesting Man. Whether it’s speaking multiple languages, traveling the world, or simply his curiosity and zest for life, he’s a guy I feel honored to call a good friend.

Matej is also the owner of Vigor Move and Live in Ljubljana, Slovenia and is currently going back to school to get his Masters Degree at St. Mary’s.

In this show, Matej and I talk about how an environmental science major became a fitness business owner, why he’s a big believer in micro-dosing information with athletes, his KPI’s for soccer players, and why he uses a heuristic approach to improve decision making.

  1. Thanks for the information on older athletes. I am 67. I have found that I can handle intensity pretty good. Must keep volume and frequency low. I like what what you said about auto regulation. That is key. Thanks again for what you give us.
