Olafs keen interest within sports and exercise followed him all the way through school to university, however suffering with injuries along the way and attending therapy sessions on a regular basis led him to develop a passion for the human body as well as injury treatment and prevention. A knee operation in his first year at the University of Gloucestershire enhanced this desire to help people get back to their full fitness as he understood the exact frustrations that injuries can bring. Upon completion of his degree in Sports Therapy, Olaf worked at AFC Bournemouth alongside the academy physiotherapist where he attended to many injuries and focused a lot of his attention on rehabilitation techniques. After one year at Bournemouth, Olaf decided to add a personal training element to his repertoire and completed his level 3 diploma in personal training, giving him the opportunity to take individuals from an injured state all the way to a fully fit, happy and committed, trained individual. In April 2017, Olaf took the chance of fulfilling his dream to travel south-east Asia, returning five months later to pursue his career in the sports and exercise industry. Chilli Pilates drew him in with the offer of training on the job, adding a completely fresh and new, yet very relevant skill to the mix, whilst providing ample personal training and therapy opportunities along the way. Reformer Pilates instantly interested him with its heavy focus on posture, strength and flexibility which, combined with regular training and possible therapy will lead to a much fitter, healthier and happier life.
