Optimizing healh, fitness and performance

Maximisation of sport performance and injury prevention

During an athletic career, many things change, but pursuit of high sports achievements and of constantly overcoming one’s own limits persists. That pursuit is feasible only if an athlete is successful in realising the entirety of his/her potential and, simultaneously, in preserving his/her health. It is our mission to help you in achieving your goals – to maximise your sports performance and to prolong your sports career.

Young and adult athletes alike undoubtedly need additional work on the development of their physical fitness and injury prevention. It is especially true for athletes in sports team games; namely, work with them in clubs is objectively limited (due to the prevalence of group work, insufficient number of physical conditioning coaches, insufficient time allocated to physical conditioning and injury prevention).

Health risk factors and fatigue play an important role in the development of one’s sports career alongside with the additional physical conditioning, proper nutrition, application of active and passive recovery aids as well as the systematic follow-up of athlete’s physical fitness.

The Motus Melior team of experts provides young and elite athletes with optimal working conditions for the following:

  • Maintenance or promotion of the fitness components that are relevant for sport-specific performance and injury prevention
  • Improvements of skills and movement efficiency
  • Optimal adaptation to training programmes and competition stress
  • Facilitated recovery after training sessions and competition.

For this purpose, we have developed a unique, personalized approach to health and athletic performances through three phases – THE MOTUS MELIOR METHOD.

The image below illustrates the most important phases and elements of the MOTUS MELIOR METHOD:


  • Tests of physical fitness and skills
  • Analysis of sleeping and nutritional habits
  • Determination of risk factors for the sports injury occurrence
  • Analysis of previous injuries


  • Setting short-term and mid-term aims
  • Intervention prescription: physical conditioning, sports training, vegetative training, physical and other recovery aids, nutrition and supplements, psychological preparation
  • Fatigue, stress and performance monitoring


  • Control tests of physical fitness and skills Control analysis of sleeping and nutritional habits Control of risk factors in sports injury occurrence


  • Improved sports performance
  • Reduced risks of injury occurrence
  • Prolonged sports career

It is a unique “one-stop shop“ where an athlete is provided with a complete personalised care indispensable for the creation and maintenance of a successful and long-lasting sports career. Services available to athletes include the following:

  • Examination of athlete’s physical fitness and his/her susceptibility to injury risks
  • Individual physical conditioning
  • Sports injury prevention, diagnostics and rehabilitation
  • Nutrition recommendations
  • Physical therapy, massage, and other recovery aids
  • Systematic monitoring of preparedness status, adaptation to training programmes and fatigue.

Pursuant to the MOTUS MELIOR METHOD image, the process begins with detailed diagnostics. The results present the foundation for creating a personalized intervention geared towards improving athletic performance and success while minimizing health risks. Most of the elements of a personalized intervention can be implemented at the Motus Melior Centre under the supervision of our team of experts (such as individual conditioning training, osteopathic treatment, physical therapy, massage, vegetative training and meditation), while our clients implement a few of the interventions (such as changing sleep habits, diet changes) on their own with our professional assistance.

We use periodical control diagnostics to establish effectiveness of a personalized intervention and the results gained represent the foundation for modification of the existing intervention or creation of a new one. Even when athletes temporarily leave Croatia, they can continue the process of maximizing performances and preventing injuries with our professional assistance.

For the last two years, I have been successfully working with Professor Marković on regeneration, fitness and recovery from injuries and pain.

Unfortunately, injuries are an integral part of professional sports. That is why it is important to have an expert team on your side, such as Professor Marković's.  The comfortable and beautiful atmosphere of Motus Melior, with its professional and expert staff, is a winning combination for a quick recovery.
