BIO
Syntymäpäivä: 03.06.1993

Date of birth: 03.06.1993
My background: many on/off hobbies in young age such as motocross, downhill skiing, trampoline, gym and football. Starting the tricking in 2010 after finding YouTube videos of the trick. I started practicing tricking actively and taught myself the basic tricks of tricking with the help of YouTube videos while creating a small tricking community in my hometown of Jämsä. In 2013 I moved to Tampere which at that time was (and still is) the center of Finnish tricking.

Here were better training opportunities and for the next few years I will practice tricking even more actively trying to reach my own highs as a tricker. In 2016 I graduated as a Personal trainer, after which I have also spent a lot of time expanding my own know – how and experience studying and actively practicing strength & mobility, body weight training, gymnastics, handstand and movement training. I have also performed as a tricker, acrobat and fire artist during these years at numerous gigs in four different countries. These days I spend a lot of time in my own practice trying to find my own boundaries and find the best ways to develop myself as well as my students.

BACKGROUND

I started coaching tricking weekly in 2011 in my hometown of Jämsä. Since I have taught tricking more than anyone in Finland (except Vellu perhaps?). More than 1000 hours of instruction for all ages, from young children to over 70 years of age, for a wide variety of body types, which has taught a lot how to teach tricking & acrobatics effectively to all different types of people taking into account age, sports background, body type, personality etc. Since 2016, I have also worked as a personal trainer, helping people by creating individual training programs for them to get closer to their own individual goals of strength, mobility, weight, muscle mass and/or skill. Since 2019, I have also actively taught handstand to hundreds of people.

GOALS AS INSTRUCTOR

My teaching style and methods I use have been heavily influenced by the industry’s major influencers such as Bruce Lee, Ido Portal, Charles Poliquin and Coach Sommer.

My goal as a coach is to help you get closer and ultimately achieve your own goals by sharing my own know-how with you and providing technical and mental support along the way. Teaching and sharing with you my own idea of versatile mobility allows us to create an interesting, useful and sustainable way to practice mobility for you.
