Background in exercise and work experience

My own sports background is in figure skating and my highest achievement is the World Championship medal in synchronised skating I received with Marigold IceUnity. My other disciplines include sports aerobics, tennis, running and weight training. I have accumulated several years of work experience since my figure skating days.

My own training

In my own training, I emphasise versatility and aim to develop different areas of conditioning equally without forgetting the joy of exercise. I especially like exercising with an encouraging group and learning new skills. I favour weight training at the gym, various functional exercises, running, tennis and fitness boxing, as well as yoga or Pilates for body maintenance.
