I am a 35 year old wife and mother of 3. I am currently in an engineering program at the University in Stavanger,Norway. Earlier I have been working as a hairdresser,but now looking forward to new challenges. My childhood started in a small village on the west coast of Norway. I have 3 sisters and 2 foster brothers. I started early with sports,and was active in boath Soccer and Tabletennis. In Tabletennis I won nationals and was on the national team. And then kids happened and I spent a decade without almost any training at all! So august 2013 was my first meet with Crossfit. And i LOVED it!! The community,the push,the pain we shared,it was breathtaking and I was hooked from day 1. After a year of Crossfit I ended up in Olympic lifting. And this is where my heart truly belong.  The immediate sense of success (or not success..haha) after a lift is a high I cannot even describe. After I started I now hold the norwegian record for my weightclass and can't wait to enter my first nationals february 2016.
I work out in two places. My weightliftingclub   Hillevåg Viking Atletklubb and Oxygymnorway. At Oxy I do my cardio and when I don't have the time to go to the weightliftingclub (it is further away than oxy) for cardio I do crossfit and this week me and a friend is joining a Muay Thai class.
