Team sports are a great passion of mine and I began playing soccer at an early age. Over the years I have practiced several different team sports and was especially successful in TeamGym and floorball. My floorball team was in the playoffs in the Swedish Championships.
At the age of 17 I attended my first group fitness instructor course and fell in love with group training. It was the perfect mix for me as it combined my love of music with working out in a group. Since then, I have attended and completed more than 30 different group exercises courses, including Pilates, Aerobics and Indoor Cycling. In addition to group fitness courses, I also have a diploma as a nutritionist.
Over the past 17 years I have taught a wide range of group fitness classes both at smaller studios and at a big fitness chain. Group fitness has become my profession and in recent years I have taught courses for fellow instructors across the Nordics, produced and choreographed group fitness concepts from scratch and mixed music for fitness classes and online productions.
My goal is to make others feel the way I felt when I fell in love with group training. I want my classes to be great experiences that you can’t wait to come back to.
My fitness career began as a dancer already at the age of 7. I started with ballroom dancing and was ranked top 5 in Sweden. I also have an extensive experience in jazz and ballet among other styles.
In 1996, I started my group fitness trainer career with multiple classes, such as aerobics and step-up and since then I´ve added basically all classes being taught at any studio around the world to my portfolio. Some examples are various Yoga forms, Pilates, Strength, wide range of HIIT classes and cycling classes. Pretty early in my career, I also became a personal trainer and in 2020, I took yet another personal trainer course to stay current.
I work as a Nordic Master Trainer, which means that I create different products and educate fellow instructors in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland.
I have been recognized both nationally and internationally with a proven track record in the fitness industry. In 2017 I received the highest recognition given to any group fitness instructor in Sweden called “Guldhjärtat” (The Golden heart).
I strive to make my classes fun, enjoyable and challenging.
I now have more than 25 yrs of experience and still really love my job.
