Physical activity

Physical activity is a big part of my life. I have always been a very active person who loves to move. I remember when I was a kid my dad always had to nag on me to come in at night, when I preferred to play sports, it could be anything from playing basketball, soccer, jumping twist, anything you can think of.

In the US I played D1 baseball in the top university league and at the same time studied to be a physical education teacher, which is the foundation of my current profession.

Sitting on a plane home from Barcelona in 2007, my good friend Björn mentions that in California there are personal trainers who work on the beach. Cool, I thought, and resigned from my job at Eriksdalsbadet to start a company with a focus on outdoor training. 


I decided early on to dedicate myself as a trainer focusing on outdoor activities. 

I thought there was a target group there for personal training that no one had explored before, at least in Sweden. It turned out that I was right, that there were quite a few people who thought the same as me. Who likes outdoor activities and also wanted to exercise that way with a personal trainer.

The goal was to be able to work full-time as a trainer and teach above all strength training outdoors.

It may not always be sunshine and sandy beaches when I work. But I enjoy spending a large part of my working time outdoors. ​

Try outdoor exercise, it's good exercise and also fun! Contact me for more information about training and before purchasing equipment for an outdoor gym.
