Born in “the sportiest city in the world”, Anta was drawn into sports by his father, who was a coach himself. He has been playing handball since he was six years old, and after finishing his studies he managed both Australian national team selections and a number of clubs. He entered the Guinness Book of Records as the youngest coach of a world national team in handball history.

In addition to having a diploma in sports management, he also studied in the USA, where he completed his postgraduate MBA studies. He completed many additional courses and professional seminars, both for work purposes and for his own interests in the fields of handball, fitness, mind body, and all types of coaching, where he combines his knowledge and passions from metaphysics, psychology, philosophy, relationships and literature.

He is the author of several books, the most well-known of which is Love Prayer, and he currently writes for some of Croatian leading portals on the topic of sports and a healthy lifestyle. In addition to coaching, he also explores various concepts of mindfulness, breathing and prevention, which he then combines into a whole to help the individuals who want to improve their results, both in sports and in life.
