Tell us a little about yourself
As a person I enjoy being active, keeping constantly on the various projects, studies, courses, etc. Currently comprises everyday life for most of the training, work and study. Has the season little time for social life, but try to take it again later. Like to relax with family, friends and my boyfriend Tommi, as we often go out and eat a good meal and take a trip to the cinema. 12.jpgOtherwise, in my spare time I like to dive, the dive part of the Mediterranean Sea and off the Canary Islands. Also love to read, began on archeology studies before I took physical therapy program, so I'm particularly interested in history. interests me for language, and also has a worked as a simultaneous translation German-Norwegian, Spanish, Norwegian, Spanish-English-German, has made a grammar compendium of Spanish grammar and has given private lessons in German, English and Spanish languages. also enjoys traveling, has been a great deal about in Europe. Since I am a big Formula 1 fan, I've been in several races around Europe. Also enjoys to ride a motorcycle, took note when I was 18 years and have driven most by cross and racing bikes. Favorite food: Is a big søtmons, so I love chocolate, ice cream and cakes. But there is little of it on the diet, so the most of it in chicken, beef and tuna, which I also am very happy in. I emphasize to only eat things that I like when I'm on a diet, otherwise I lose motivation . Would that the little I eat on the diet, at least to be something I like ..
What made you begin to start with fitness and how long have you trained?
I started weight training as a form of exercise in addition to athletics when I was 17. Was pretty slim, and wanted to put on me a little more muscle mass. When I saw that I had good success and create bigger muscles relatively quickly, I was "bitten by the bug" and began to spend more time on strength than athletics. Trained a lot until I was 24 years, and felt that I needed a break from strength training. The break lasted until 2 years ago, when it was time to take up strength training again. In the meantime (6 years) I kept on with the riding and scuba diving, but were not as active as I am now in training. One of the reasons I took up training again was that I knew that the body began to struggle a bit with compromised immune systems, pain in lower back, shoulders began to hurt (a lot from my profession as a physical therapist) and I did not know the shape my body started to get .. Then it was time for a change, both in terms of exercise and diet. So for 2 years (Sept 2005) I started with the strength and endurance training again, and began at once with the diet to build muscle. And now - 2 years later - I participate in the World Cup and the Spanish national team in fitness:)
Have you been active in other sports?
Have worked with various sports since elementary school: baseball, volleyball, athletics, horse riding and scuba diving. Has previously competed in the sprint.
What does a normal day in your life?

Meal 10:00 p.m.
11:30 p.m. Meals

What are your goals and ambitions?
My major goal of the training is short and good to have a good time. Ie. that exercise gives me a positive content in life in many ways: good health and healthy to prevent disease and other health problems. Training affects all areas of my life positively, both relational, social and health conditions. Direct measure of body fitness competitions is to continue to compete for 4-5 years. In the first game here in Spain until I return home to Tommi in Oslo around Easter next year. Then I'm going to compete in Norway, and the first goal is to qualify for European Championships in the spring. Hope to be able to qualify for IFBB pro license within 2 years, so I'm going to stand on! :) Goals and ambitions in terms of work and private life is to start up different concept in fitness, health and diet / nutrition, together with Tommi when I move back to Norway. We're developing different ideas, and with my background as a physiotherapist and fitness exercises, and Tommis background as a bodybuilder and many years in the fitness and diet industry, we have a good basis to start up a solid concept. I have included many different ideas in personal training that I plan to start next year in cooperation with Tommi.

Approx. 12 weeks.
Set up your diet yourself or get help?
Will the help of my coach here in Spain (Emilio Martinez) and my boyfriend Tommi Thorvildsen.
What does your fitness regimen like?
Have tried some different diets, and find it is often best to combine a little. Ie. a period of almost zero carb, high protein and very little fat, and then a period of only protein and fat. Do it depends on the form before competition and receive close supervision of my coach and Tommi when it comes to final adjustments.
Outside of competitions I adjust the carbohydrate intake and is sometimes up in such a pound of rice a day.
If there is a lot of posturing training before competition?
Before the competition I set aside time to practice the poses with my trainer 2-3 times a week, approx. 30min. each time
What supplements would you recommend to others and why?
Vitargo before and after training, both to get the proper "pump" in training, and for a good recovery after exercise. It usually takes 1 to 1.5 h. before exercise and immediately after exercise.
How do you think it is to combine family / circle of friends with diet and exercise?
Since Tommi doing the same, there is no problem combining it with him. We are always training together when I am with him in Oslo and he is here in Spain. When it comes to friends, I have both friends who train at the gym, and friends outside the gym. Trying to keep as close contact with both, but note that it can Dabbs of bit periods before the competition when it comes to friends who do not go to the gym. But I have informed them about it, so they understand. They support me all giving me very positive backing. At the clinic where I work, I have an awesome bunch of people who support me 100%. They met almost all up and cheered me on the Spanish championship, when I was very touched ..
Have two wonderful sisters and the world's most beautiful niece who supports me in everything I make myself when it comes to training and also otherwise.

Has a very good physics, work hard, serious and determined by training, seems like a talented person in many ways and as most know achieved great results (has won numerous competitions since 2000 and has been Ms. Figure Olympia last 2 years).

What is your training tips for beginners?
Put yourself first your training goals, find out what you want to achieve.
Then find a form of exercise that you like.
Do not give up even if it's two steps forward and one step back, you destroy not everything you have built up even if you "goes on a smell" in between, when it comes to exercise and diet.
Remember that there is no way to trick your body, you are what you eat and what you are doing the training!
Something you want to say in the end?
Thanks to everyone who supports me and understands how much exercise does for me. Hope I can be a positive role model for others, both in terms of diet, exercise and drive:) Big hug, Evie
