Method Makia history

Method Makia

Method Makia is a training application developed in Finland. The system offers everyone a suitable challenging exercise that can be done at home or at the gym. The difficulty of the exercises increases automatically with development.

Method Makia Diet History

Method Makia’s history extends back to 2009. I was 39 years old and just recovered to be able to work again after a four-month conservative treatment for disc prolapse of my cervical vertebrae between the C5-C6.

The treatment was rest, immobilization and painkillers. This helped the injury to heal. Still, the disc weighed on the nerve and radiated to the left hand, making it at times unusable. I refused surgery because I did not want my neck to be stiffened with titanium over many vertebrae.

The reason was lack of body care

The disc prolapse came from an innocent whiplash of my head backward. Afterward, in physiotherapy it turned out that the disc prolapse was due to the stiffening of the thoracic spine as a result of strength training. For me,  it was the Olympic weight lifts and inadequate maintenance of the body due to my own ignorance.

Able to Work, but with discomfort

The disc prolapse bothered me constantly and took away my night sleep due to the pain. I knew then that exercise is the best medicine and you can not stay inactive, otherwise, the injury remains unchanged or gets worse. The problem with the injury was that I could not bend my head or chest backward. I wondered how I could both strengthen and mobilize my upper body in a controlled manner. I had also gained weight significantly due to nearly half a year of immobility.

Something new for rehabilitation

Then I acquired gymnastic rings and started a sensible diet. I found basic instructions on the internet to get started with the gymnastic ring exercises. Positive developments regarding the pain started immediately. I practiced a lot of hanging and some other exercises using my body weight, which at the same time both reinforce and mobilize the chest and shoulders. After a couple of months, the pains were almost completely gone, and they only bothered me in the extreme positions that I could not even consider doing before.

Basic training has good results

During this time I exercised only with the weight of my body. The exercises were very basic. I found that it was very difficult to find high-quality data on bodyweight training. To my surprise, I found that muscle mass increased even more than with weight training, and the upper body became very functional compared to before. My hand movement limits improved and my mid-body support felt much better than before. All the shoulder pains also disappeared, which are common ailments with strength training.

And again iron to the bar

However, I still had a desire for weight training, and I entered the door of the Gym again. After returning to the Gym I could not believe the results. I had been doing nothing for more than half a year. After that, I had been practicing for a couple of months with the gymnastic rings. The snatch, clean and jerk went better than before. I lifted easily the weight series I had done before I was injured! My strength level had risen incredibly quickly. At that time I thought, “such a thing this good must be made known to everyone”.

Further poor body care

I continued bodyweight training combined with weight lifting and it was a good combination. Then, in the warm-up series for squats, in my deep-seated position, I heard a small crack in my lower back and I felt something broke. Immediately the pain began that paralyzed me and took me to the hospital for a week. A vertebral arch was fractured in the lower back. A vertebral arch fracture is a relatively common ailment for athletes. After being released from the hospital I could just barely walk because of the pain. With the gymnastic rings, I was concentrating on the chest but ignored the lower back.

No sooner said than done!

At that time, in 2010, the actual development of Method Makia began. If I had got the chest and shoulders in shape with basic gymnastic rings training, what would happen if I could develop similar bodyweight exercises and integrate them holistically into the whole body?

The team is gathered

I gathered a large number of skilled people with extensive know-how of different training methods. We combined the best bodyweight exercises with the best mobilization exercises. We created, tested and changed exercises and progressions. We did it again and again. We removed all the bad methods and left only the good. The result of the development work was: METHOD MAKIA – A guided path to your body’s power and mobility.

Made for you

Now Method Makia is ready and all the know-how will be given to you directly on a tray. Development progressions have been tested to be functional and safe, and training can be started by anyone, even if you have no sporting background. Correspondingly, athletes get a truly effective training program that raises the power levels and mobility, and thus the performance, to a completely new level.

Really great service

Method Makia has over 700 exercise combinations (over 1400 video tutorials) that are divided into different areas and always lead to more and more difficult movements accomplished with your body weight. The Video Library was deliberately left out of the program, where you could aimlessly navigate different movements. Trying a too demanding movement without adequate basic training is neither useful nor safe.

Not forgetting the diet

Method Makia also includes a wide-ranging diet service, which is its own application but seamlessly integrated with the Method Makia app. It was developed and improved alongside the training service. After years of development, we can say that it is the most efficient and healthy diet on the market. With it you consume a lot of vegetables, suitable amounts of protein, lots of natural fats and oils.

The food service was opened on separate sites ( and for overweight people who want to lose weight only through diet. In a couple of years, the services have helped people lose tens of thousands of pounds. The Diet is also great for sports enthusiasts, as you do not need to weigh doses or starve. It causes fat to burn, but it saves or even increases muscle mass during weight loss.

Transformation in about four months, with method Makia exercises and diet.

Your trajectory is based on your abilities

“First, you have to learn how to sit, so that you can stand. When you are able to stand, you can learn to walk. When you can walk, you will certainly learn to run. When you can run, you can already jump. ” The stages of development follow each other and their inherent order must not be changed. Method Makia takes care that your development curve is appropriate and according to your abilities.

Great thanks to everyone

Method Makia became better than I could ever have imagined. Thanks belongs to everyone involved in the project, who immediately believed, committed, saw a common goal and provided all of their knowledge and skills for the benefit of Method Makia.

The idea that “everyone should get to know such a good thing” is now true.
