Adventurer, Performance Psychologist, Speaker and Author.
Born in Brussels, Belgium, Cedric has always been involved in action and adventure sports. Cedric is a pioneer in basejumping and wingsuit flying and is member of the RedBull team since 2000.
"This is all about freedom, commitment and pushing your limits, it takes me to amazing places, teaches me respect for the environment and others, motivates me to improve, and keeps me humble on those high gravity days."
Cedric studied High Performance Psychology, fascinated by the power of the mind, he started by giving fellow professional athletes the mental edge and skills necessary to achieve their goals and unleash their full potential. In extreme environments where one is expected to deliver and assess risks, hyper-awareness has been the foundation to his consistent performance and survival, it's flow or die!
"It’s all about living a comprehensive lifestyle and being in the present moment. This includes energy management and feeding the mind with healthy insights and generating positive thoughts."
Cedric splits his time between leading expeditions, flying, speaking, writing and consutling for elite athletes and major companies all over the world.
