Strength and Conditioning Coach
As a professional for over 15 years with a strong academic background, I have developed a modern and dynamic style of personal training. Effective, functional training routines, tailored towards your personal health and fitness goals are what I loves to work towards. This style of training is based around a wealth of experience that includes, working with numerous World & Olympic athletes, developing Norwegian sport champions, preventing heart problems and other diseases through exercise as a medicine, as well as countless private clients achieving their personal goals. I connect with literally millions of people around the world through my website and youtube video channel with great demonstrations and training advice for all.
I’m experienced in training young people and adults of all ages, in groups and as individuals, and have excellent communication and presentation skills. I am English and currently live and work in Oslo.

Personal Web Site – http://www.sihunt.wordpress.com
I have spent the last year developing the ideas and systems for this site. The purpose of the site is to deliver online video content and support, for the athletes that I coach and jumpers from around the world. The videos are direct coaching demonstrations of specific plyometric and athletic skills. I personally demonstrate the exercise, edit the video and record the voice over. These are short, information rich videos, which allow the user to select the specific exercises that interest them. The site offers support to world-class athletes with comprehensive training programmes that are available for download.
The site also covers Cardiovascular Disease and Rehabilitation topics with specific educational files for patients to download. The site maintenance and systems are managed by myself.
