Coaching

Reduce aches and pains.

Prevent injuries.

Get the most out of the sport you love.

“I have started smaller hikes again and snowboarding without any pain in my knees. My overall fitness has improved, I lasted 6-8 days boarding on a recent 10 day snow trip to the US.”
– Rachel

My typical clients are recreational athletes and outdoor enthusiasts who struggle in the sport they love because of a recurring injury, weakness or movement issue.

Most of them have tried various high intensity, “no pain, no gain” training programs in the past only to end up with more performance limiting problems. This sucks the enjoyment out of the activities they’re passionate about.

Your training in the gym should complement and support your sport

It should give you the confidence to perform at your best without worrying about aches, pains or the constant risk of re-injury.

“I was battling with an injury that prevented me from doing any running at all. I was able to get back to competing and completed a 100 kilometre race shortly after. The training was essential part for me being successful in my races.”
– Mat


I can honestly say this was very, very hard work – over 15,000m of climbing [!!!] and long days starting with bag drop at 6am and frequently riding until dark. We faced some interesting headwinds once we got into Victoria. Thanks Joonas, you need to take a lot of the credit for keeping my body on the bike to get through the training… the work we did made a massive difference and my body has pulled up really well this week.
– Kristeen, after 1400km and raising stupid amount of money for Tour de Cure

Getting sustainable results requires patience to ignore quick fixes. In my coaching we focus on efficient and reasonable approach to strength and fitness leaving you with more time for the sport you love. Yet you still need to put in the work, both in an outside of the appointments to reach your goals.

If you’re after a trainer who subs as a Satan’s right hand man, my coaching style is not going to cut it for you

Results driven training doesn’t need to be super serious, done while grinding teeth to a block of steel reinforced concrete. Role playing Full Metal Jacket bootcamp scenes isn’t what my clients are into. And neither am I.

Depending on your location the coaching can be traditional personal training (only in Barangaroo, Sydney, AUS), distance coaching, or a hybrid of both.

When needed, I work together with physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, other trainers and doctors to get you the best possible results.

“Having suffered from a succession of sporting injuries last year, I sought to rebuild my foundations at the gym to further my footballing ambitions. Joonas’ holistic approach ensured my tailored program reduced my risk of injury and well as build strength and speed.
