What was your starting point versus your current fitness status?

My core and back needed a real boost (overall old-man-problems), after my first whole year without playing regular soccer since 1983. From February/March, I Skimbled regularly as part of my daily routine and I feel fitter than ever, walk up straight (again), and feel much stronger and a whole lot more relaxed, due to yoga.

What do you hope to accomplish, fitness-wise, before the end of the year?

Well, goals: I try some new things along the way and almost a week ago I set my mind to get The Wheel, the Tripod headstand and/or the Shirshasana before the new year. It starts with headstand prep-workouts and further strengthening, especially the core and deltoids, so whatever happens, I win.

Who’s your fitness icon and why?

The only one that comes to mind in regards to ‘fitness’ combined with ‘icon’ is Bruce Lee, but i don’t know if he’s a fitness-icon. This dry-muscled man used to slap people silly (or worse) if my memory serves me right.

What’s your favorite thing about Skimble? 

The Skimble work-outs in all kinds and colours. I can make my own work-outs or try/use those of others and Skimblers can motivate you sometimes. And sometimes, I have to admit it, it’s addictive.

What’s your fitness mantra/motto?

If you want it, you can achieve it, and this is no Hallmark-card but actually true.
