My 10-Week Challenge | Take Action Now | Status Week 5

“When life slows down.” “When I have less work.” “When I’m less tired.” “When I’m older.” “When I feel more motivated.” All these reasons I had to not try and get back in shape right now. To wait a few more months or years. Reasons to wait for the right moment so I would be 100% ready and not risk failure. But I didn’t wait. I knew that there’s never a right time to be ready, and if I want something I have to just go for it now. Do...

My 10-Week Challenge | Week 4 Status

I woke up on Friday morning with a sore body (from a week of intense workouts), a super bloated belly and +600 grams on the scale.

I do have a lot on my plate this week with projects I’m involved in such as the Dubai Fitness Challenge and an event for new Danes in Dubai, but I’m excited about being involved in both projects and...

Weightloss 101: Basic Tips For Beginners

I know first hand that there’s so much bad advice on the internet… When I was a complete beginner and wanted to lose weight, I thought it had to be all-or-nothing, so found all these obscure diets and workouts that made me feel miserable, and I remember thinking that maybe losing the weight just wasn’t for me. If being fit and healthy was supposed to feel so miserable, I’d rather be fat! Thankfully, I didn’t give up and now I’m here to help you avoid making all the same mistakes...
