ANNAMAARIA KANGAS

personal trainer & crossfit coach

Ansku.jpg

I coach our Small Group CrossFit classes and also work as a Personal Trainer. I'm specialized in Running Coaching.

My child- and young hood history in classical ballet and gymnastics have also given me a good foundation and skill set to teach how to build up a strong foundation and body control.

I've always been a highly active person and sports for me have played a natural way of channelling that energy and my emotions. In nowadays hectic world, one of the most valuable things in training is that for that moment it takes you away from the world around you and that is your only focus there and then.

 

As a coach, my job is not to teach you a method or give you a recipe to health. I'm there to give you tools and to guide you on your own journey towards happier and healthier you.

VICTOR

Personal trainer & CROSSFIT COACH

Victor_coach_stadifit

I coach our Small Group CrossFit classes and also work as a Personal Trainer. I'm specialized in Weightlifting and Strength and Conditioning for different sports.

I’ve been related to sports most of my life, from a high level football player perspective in early days and eventually as a coach, looking to make a difference in every person that I get the chance to work with.

I’m a strong believer that quality of movement and efficiency matters when it comes to getting stronger, faster, fitter, powerfull or healthier; and that to improve a healthy body is a challenge that require the knowledge and professionalism that a doctor has on sick people.

We were made to move and play around as children do, so let’s keep the fun in training.

 

Is not about how much or hard you train, is about getting the best results with the less amount of stress, been smart.

LISA KOIVUNEN

PERSONAL TRAINER

Lisa_Personal-Trainer

i am a Personal Trainer specialized in CALISTHENICS AND BODYWEIGHT TRAINING.

As a youngster I was very keen on dancing street dances. While enjoying the joy of the sports in form of dance, I built a solid foundation for body control and bodyweight strength.

Later on I realised that the skills you can learn and the strength you can build by only using the weight of your own body is limitless. All this has made me being interested in developing myself a specialist in functional bodyweight training, in the other word calisthenics.


Believe in yourself and be surprised that you actually have potential for much more than you first thought.


  • Personal Trainer of functional training

ELINA GUSTAFSSON

Yoga Instructor

I teach Yoga for groups and give individual One on One - yoga classes

Physical activity means to me finding a balance and strength of mind and body in everydaylife. I love challenging myself- be it with physical activities or with a new job or a project: my practise has given me the conviction to make decisions, then make things happen. Coming from a dance backround, when I first started practising 8 years ago the practice felt like a dance. Vinyasa for me is a beautiful movement. The Asana breathing techniques, awareness of the body and mind gives an opportunity to learn something new in each practice.

 

As a yoga instructor, I want to encourage you to do what feels comfortable. I want to give the tools to feel more alive, connected and energized. You just need to be open mind and have the willingness to grow!
