About The Hosts:



"I have trained using various systems including endurance, traditional bodybuilding, Olympic lifting and powerlifting but have dedicated myself for the past 5 years to bodyweight training with more recent years taking a handbalance focus. Whilst I am a self-experimenter at heart and mostly self-taught, I am formally educated under the CHEK Institute and Poliquin group. I have been coaching specifically bodyweight strength, handbalancing and flexibility for over 2 years helping people to progress their skills. I also run a YouTube channel with over 150k subscribers sharing my experience with bodyweight and flexibility training helping people all over the world on their journey."



"I have been practising handbalancing for about 6 years, first attempting to train on my own without much success. I then met Mikael Kristiansen and began his coaching for the following 3 years. Before handbalancing, I was searching for “my thing”. The thing I wanted to become good at and with this. Everything just clicked. Before handbalancing, I practised both regular strength and fitness training as well as marathon racing. I have also been a personal trainer for 6 years and online handbalancing coach for 2 years. As someone whos not been to circus school and has no full roots in that world, it gives perspective on what it takes to achieve a high level of skill. I would really like to spread the joy I have found in handbalancing with other people."
