Marjaana Rakai   Be Sisu Fit Inc.

I am a former cross-country ski athlete at Finnish national level, track & field athlete, weekend warrior, runner and a triathlete training for Ironman. I love helping athletes reach their goals at any level!
I have Master's degree in Sports Science from the Norwegian School of Sports Science (Exercise Physiology & Biomechanics), NASM personal trainer certification and currently undertaking Ironman Coaching certification.


Training programs are based on these principles:

  1. Every athlete is an individual, with their unique possibilities, needs and preferences –each program is designed uniquely to the person in question.Programs will be easily accessible via training app, and coach’s support is only an email, Skype or text message away.All programs are designed based on scientific training principles. My education goes way beyond a Master’s degree in Sports Science. Over 30 years of experience of being an athlete, and over 20 years as a coach. Injuries have been part of my journey as an athlete, and I understand both the physical and mental strain that injuries cause. Also, with life’s ups and downs, training is sometimes the last thing in one’s mind. I am raising three little athletes, and I have lived in four continents, so I can relate to the busy lifestyle we all live. However, consistency is the key and with simple everyday effort you can keep improving and moving towards your goal.
