Get to know me
I come from an Austro-American upbringing, growing up trilingual and always seeking to fulfill my desires by doing what I love, with near perfectionism and passion. From a young age I always have been actively involved in a multitude of sports from soccer to american football, martial arts (Black Belt 1 Dan – Shodon) to Track and Field. At the age of 14, I completed my first of many marathons (42.195km) and shortly thereafter my first Ironman triathlon. I have competed in many sporting events including the World Junior Championships in Athletics and held several Austrian records in the 200m, 400m and 1500m distances.
At the age of 17, after graduating high school before my military service I began my first company, SilverStar, traveling to the likes of Australia and Singapore. Shortly thereafter founding the K Lifestyle Group, a multimedia and entertainment company. Through my passion to sports I began developing what I called the K:fit concept, a fitness routine aimed at increasing strength, agility, endurance and mind – used at health clubs, personal coaching and numerous athletic teams. At 18, I began coaching basketball (including my younger brother, a former top Austrian talent) and soccer teams and provide guidance and mentoring. I enjoy traveling in my spare time, writing and producing music, have started my own record label 22ent, performing in front of packed crowds of thousands at festivals and concerts. I absolutely love all types of culinary cuisines, and began developing a passion for technology and philanthropy at an early age.
I hold a Bachelors in Business Administration along side numerous certifications ranging from Certified Personal Trainer to Project Management, continuously seeking knowledge through personal development. I have spoken in front of packed crowds, from university students to the business environment.
I’m currently engaged, among other things, in the corporate environment where I have gone from the bottom to executive levels within 6 years, and aside from reestablishing my own brand here on hermannk.com, enlisted in advancing my education through a Master of Science in Nutrition and Exercise. I have had several articles published and plan to release my debut book (updated) in 2016.
Life to me is a mindset, soak in your surroundings the best you can and never stop engaging. I believe that life is a fine balance between ambition, working hard and spending time on the important things without having to compromise on ones goals.
