I am a Certified Personal Trainer educated in anatomy and proper muscle movement during exercise. My specialties also include Mat Pilates, HIIT training & Surf Conditioning.
In our first meeting I interview you and we set up a goal and a training program based on your specific needs and wishes. I think the base of any successful training program is finding your true WHY you want a balanced organic lifestyle and not loosing it from your sight, ever.
Let's talk more and start the fun!
I am based in Finland and I am here to inspire you to become a stronger, more flexible & fast surfer wherever you are in the world. In my Online Surf programs I meet you with a personal contact over the phone, Skype, Messenger or other tool .
The online Surf conditioning program is great for any surfer who travel a lot, seek inspiration to your training or doesn’t get to surf that often and want to train for a Surf Trip or retreat or just have fun with the surf community and other surfers.
The Surf Conditioning class combines my love for surfing, beach life, training and music. It consists of Meditation, Hiit Training, yoga and Pilates training with focus on strengthening the core muscles. It improves coordination and flexibility and enables you to make the most out of your time riding the waves. Surf Conditioning is a perfect work out while planning your next surfing trip. I also work towards cleaning our seas by eating and living in a sustainable way and donate 1% of my profit to WWF to save our seas
The goal of Pilates is overall body fitness, elongated supple muscles, and balance between body and mind, with all the parts of a person working as a whole. Pilates workouts focus first on developing strength through the core of the body--the back, abdomen and hips. I specialize in Mat Pilates.

"I HAVE ALWAYS HAD PROBLEMS WITH MY SHOULDER. AFTER A FEW CLASSES OF PILATES PAIN WAS GONE."
My name is Isabella. I am a mum, entrepreneur, Pilates instructor & personal trainer. I am here to guide and support you when it comes to training and living a healthy lifestyle, where ever you are.
Training, sports and health has always been a big part of my life. While growing up in Finland I spent most of my time hitting the slopes, in the handball court or at the dance studio. After I finished my business studies in 2001 I decided to move to London, where I was introduced to photography and yoga that became a big inspiration in my life.
Another powerful influence in my life is Cape Town, South Africa, where my family moved back in 1995. In 2007 I decided to make training a part of my professional life and I got my Personal Trainer certificate at ETA (Exercise Teachers Academy), one of the leading sport and fitness institutes in South Africa. I also finished Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced Mat Pilates at James Raaff & Associates.
During my six years in South Africa I taught Pilates and Surf Conditioning classes in the Academy Studios in Muizenberg, BP Wellness Studio in Llandudno and on the beaches of Cape Town. I also thought Pilates at Moola in Helsinki in 2011 and in the Åland Islands at Medis when I lived there in 2013-2014. 2014-2015 I worked at the Elite Personal Training Club in Helsinki as a personal trainer and pilates classes. I teached LIVE online classes at Yogaia as from 2015-2017.
Today I am based in Finland and work as a Personal trainer, Pilates instructor with clients in their homes, outdoors, at Fit Viherlaakso, Fressi and KSUF.
I also offer Online Surf Conditioning and have reintroduced the Surf Conditioning class in Finland. Got some exciting News regards to Surf Retreats so watch this space ;)!!!
My passion is helping you living a balanced organic active lifestyle and feel good about yourself living your passion. I hope training with me will increase your self-awareness to lead a healthy and active lifestyle, boost your creativity and make you feel free and happy with yourself. As the change to live a healthy lifestyle has to start with you I believe the words below are so true. I am here to support you on the way.
"I recognize my true inner beauty. I value and cherish all that I am. I have the power to transform my life and to experience true joy"
