How & why did I start:
I read in the Helsingin Sanomat that the fittest man on earth comes from Pori, and that was it.
I wanted to lose weight and started to train with kettlebells with Ville Huttunen. Later, Ville opened a CrossFit Box in Kuopio and CrossFit became my career too. Since opening the CrossFit Kuopio, I have been working there.
My coolest sport memory:
It’s hard to pick one, and the coolest memories are less to do with winning, even though winning feels good too.
The best things in sport and competitions are the little moments between the athletes. For example, in one event, I did the long distance row beside Mikko Ojala and spent more time watching the screen of Mikko than mine. Next morning while drinking our morning coffee, we changed thoughts and discovered that neither of us had been sleeping; we had been “rowing” the whole night.
My biggest goal:
My biggest goal is to have fun and do old school CrossFit. I might attend some competitions but the main thing is to enjoy doing sports - not winning.
