Marjaana is not only a former high-level cross-country skier, and Ironman athlete, but she has also first-hand experienced what it is to NOT be fit and healthy.

Her knowledge in Exercise Science goes way beyond the master’s degree. She has over 30 years of experience of being an athlete- with it comes both ups and downs in forms of victories, goals reached and injuries.

Being a busy master's athlete with ambitious goals with 3 small children she truly understands the time limitations of any athlete.

She has coached runners of all ages from children to adults in all running ability levels. She works with athletes from beginners to seasoned athletes in Running, Triathlon and Nordic skiing. One of the cornerstones in her coaching is strength training. She believes all levels of athletes can maximize their running/skiing/biking/swimming capabilities by hitting the gym regularly.

Coaching Philosophy

  2. Coach's main and most important job is communication.
  3. Honesty. Athlete's most important and perhaps most difficult job is to be honest with her/himself and the coach.
  4. Courage to become the person you were always meant to &
