Alexander “Sania” Oleinikov


People are people. I will still love them, teach them and give them a kick in the arse be it required.

I do my homework and exclude ineffective approaches from my practice.

I'm a nice guy that can give a challenge and stay calm, when a real or metaphorical storm is breaking loose.

Alexander “Sania” Oleinikov has 5 references for past work as a trainer.
