Gerdahallen is a 40-Year-Old Foundation

On 16 December 1983, the Board of Lund University established the Foundation for Physical Activity at Lund University. The aim was to encourage students and staff to be more active. Since then, Gerdahallen has grown to become Lund’s largest gym and a natural gathering place for everyone who wants to lead a healthy and active life.

The board of the foundation consists of six members. Lund University’s board appoints three of them: a chairman and two members. Lund University’s student unions appoint three members.


Gerdahallen’s board is appointed by Lund University’s board and LUS (Lund University’s student unions).

“Everyone has time to exercise!

I have been physically active all my life. Initially involved in track and field, I found my way to the gym during my teenage years, where I became enchanted by the weights. I competed in bodybuilding and fitness, which was an incredibly enriching and enjoyable period of my life.

I’m passionate about witnessing people evolve, strengthen their self-confidence, and enhance their self-esteem. Exercise should be challenging, empowering, and synonymous with joy! That’s why I’m taking on the role of gym manager and personal trainer at the wonderful Gerdahallen. I look forward to getting to know all of you who make the gym the unique place it is. Together, I believe we can develop the facility and create an even more inspiring training environment, where motivation, order, and the joy of exercise are our guiding principles.

I always encourage physical activity, which sounds more complex than it actually is. Physical activity is any form of movement that increases energy expenditure. You know the classics: walk an extra bus stop, take the stairs instead of the elevator… That’s where we need to start, in order to incorporate an active lifestyle into our goals. If we’re instead just going for walks or aimless jogs, perhaps hitting the gym a few times a week but always using the same weights and seeing neither decline nor improvement – then we’re engaging in exercise as physical activity. I want to encourage those of you who enjoy light exercise (which is great if you do – exercise is very beneficial!) to step it up and start training! Training is purposeful physical activity aimed at systematically strengthening specific abilities and capacities over the long term. To succeed in our training, we need a long-term plan and a specific program to follow. That’s where I come in as a Personal Trainer. I’ll help you discover appropriate methods that foster adaptation to increased demands. Through this, along with a long-term and sustainable (I don’t believe in diets) nutrition plan, we will together transform your life, enhance your quality of life, and improve your self-image.

I know that everyone has time to exercise. It’s all about priorities. I’ll help you find the inspiration, and with it, we’ll find the time! Feel welcome to email me if we’re going to work together to achieve your goals!

Take care!

Training According to Your Conditions!

For me, exercise isn’t just a physical goal, it’s a lifestyle. I’m passionate about showing that training can be fun and rewarding while promoting health and well-being. My own love for exercise brings me genuine joy in sharing knowledge and encouragement with my clients. Witnessing progress and how people overcome obstacles is my driving force.

I’m convinced that a balanced and healthy lifestyle can change lives, and I’m here to guide you on that journey. Whether you’re a beginner or experienced, old or young, whether you have goals of weight loss, increased strength, or simply feeling better, I look forward to being your personal trainer. Together, we can make the impossible possible and create a future filled with energy, joy, and health!

With a background as an occupational therapist with over 15 years of experience, I have a unique understanding of body function and movement patterns. My experience in rehabilitation and guiding through challenges has shaped my approach as a personal trainer. I strongly believe that each individual has their own unique journey and potential. My passion lies not only in inspiring but also in tailoring the training and goals to each person’s conditions and desires.

Which exercise is best?

The answer to that question, and to all the other questions I get from people who are going to start their training journey, or have been training for a while but want to further develop, is the same. It depends on your individual conditions and opportunities. It is important to understand that we exercise to live well. My role as your PT is to help you find out what works for you and goals you want to achieve. What is needed for you to achieve the change you want to achieve or to achieve your goal?

My goal with your training is that it should be challenging, fun and educational.
