Coaches Spotlight: Mads

September 22, 2015

Here is a spotlight on Coach Mads, the most flexible man in the gym. We asked him some questions so our members can get to know him a little better. He even answered in English ;)




What is your athletic, fitness, and training background? 


Played football, as all kids, did about 3 years of Muay Thai, and 1 year of Kali Sikaran, other than that I’ve been a standard gym rat from time to time, until i finally started crossfit about 1,5 years ago.




If you have a career outside of Crossfit what is it? And if you are in school, what are you studying? 


I currently work at National Oilwell Varco, where I test drilling equipment.


What is your favourite part about being a Crossfit Coach? 


My favourite part about being a coach.. I think watching people grow, the feeling I get when I get to be a part of someone succeeding/mastering new skills, or mobility/or just pushing through a hard workout is just awesome.


What was your first exposure to Crossfit like? 


My first exposure was through a friend that told me about At the time, I was just working out at a «regular» gym, so i thought I´d try it out. It lasted about 1 - 2 months until i got sick of not mastering technique, and not understanding half of the workouts. My first REAL encounter was when 46 started up :-)


What is your favourite movie? 


An almost impossible question.. Depends on what state of mind I´m in, so I´ll give you 2 movies. The Gladiator, and The Shawshank Redemption.


What are the top 3 songs most played on your itunes or music device of choice? (Be honest)


Joe Bonamassa - Stop, ASAP rocky - Holy Gost, Danko Jones - I think bad thoughts


What is your favourite exercise in Crossfit? 


Current favourite exercise must be the snatch.




What is your least favourite exercise in Crossfit?


No brainer, Burpee Boxjump over *puke*


Besides Crossfit, what do you like to do for fun in your spare-time? 


Everything besides doing nothing. Fishing, reading, movies, hanging out with friends, traveling, hiking, diving, and pondering on life´s great mysteries.



Thanks Mads, you've been a great addition to our team.
