“I have over 12 years’ experience in the fitness industry. I am passionate for sports and I love what I do. I was just 19 when I became a Lieutenant and I started to train a large team of Soldiers and Sergeants. In the army my fitness life started full noise, exercising pushing trough my limits every day. “
