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 now a triathlete training for Ironman.
I work with athletes of all levels from a mother wanting to get back in shape, to any endurance athlete from age-groupers to elite athletes in running, skiing, triathlon.
I am pleased to offer online coaching, 1-on-1 and group training, and training camps.


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.
  2. Programs will be easily accessible via training app, and coach’s support is only an email, Skype or text message away.
  3. All programs are designed based on scientific training principles.
  4. The four cornerstones of the programs are
    My education goes way beyond Master’s degree in Sport 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. I GET IT – training is sometimes hard to keep in the calendar. I have coached family, kids, friends, clients of all ages, all abilities, all over the world. I have NASM Personal Trainer Certification and am currently in process of getting National Coaching Certification in Canada.
