I've been fascinated with fitness from the moment I ran my first 60-meter race as a kid. The energy, the rush of adrenaline, the instant desire to go again - but faster - was something I had never felt before. The ability to improve and perfect by learning and practicing suits my underlying OCD perfectly. In my teens, I packed my bags and left home for a boyband in Dublin. Not long after I moved onto Melodifestivalen, the Swedish semi-finals for Eurovision Song Contest, (but it's better for everyone if you don’t Google that chapter of my life!) and released two albums. It's fair to say I love music, and it's always been a huge part of my ten years of experience in teaching group fitness.
Back in Sweden and twenty years old, I decided to let my music career rest and became a Personal Trainer and Nutritionist. Right out of school, one of my teachers then offered me a job at perhaps the most exclusive gym in Sweden - the Grand Hôtel Nordic SPA & Fitness. Early on in my career, I realized that the one thing that triggered my interest more than anything else was helping people lose weight. To me, the excitement in the eyes of someone about to start, and the pride in the eyes of someone who successfully reached their goals is what this job is all about. My main focus is to find a sustainable lifestyle that will help clients not only lose but also maintain the goal weight. Therefore, I early on started experimenting with food in a completely different way than I had before - to find a way to lose weight without having to compromise on good taste and portion size.
Having won ‘Group Fitness Instructor of the Year’, a nomination as ‘Personal Trainer of the Year’ at Fitnessfestivalen I was headhunted to travel the world along with a private client - managing both workouts and nutritional plans. In the two years I spent working intensely with one client at a time, I not only helped them reach their goals, but I realized that the way I was working could revolutionize the way people look at weight loss. While teaching at Barry’s Bootcamp in Stockholm, I’ve evolved my philosophy into a concept where I’m able to offer best parts of a full-time trainer in the form of an online coach.
