Feedback from athletes

Stockholm Marathon 2022 and Ironman Ireland 2022

I am currently training for my first Ironman and consider myself lucky to have been put in touch with Erik. 

Erik has a wealth of knowledge and experience which is invaluable to someone who is new to triathlons. On top of this, he is empathetic and understanding to the individual challenges faced along the way.  I have progressed so much with his guidance and am gaining confidence in completing my first Ironman!

  • A coach who makes you feel seen and heard, makes you focus on your WHY with the training
  • Always have health in focus to not put too much pressure on your body, and be aware of your limitations
  • Great to bring people together for the fun both during and after running.
  • Trying to make you aware of the progress you have already accomplished to gain more self-confidence
  • Have taught me that the small things that many people skip will be the difference in the end if you do them

I got in contact with Erik when I decided to get back on my fitness journey. From the very beginning, Erik has been incredibly motivational and understanding. With Erik’s help, I have managed to go from struggling through 3km jogs, to completing my second full marathon. I have a long way to go but I am excited to reach more goals with Erik’s expert coaching!

I love Erik’s no-nonsens-attitude. As long as you put the work in, everything is possible! Erik coached me towards Stockholm Marathon 2022. It was my first marathon. Erik’s coachning was a valueable part of my preparations and an important reason behind my successful marathon debut.

”Great feedback for a better running technique.

After each conversation you get motivated to reach your goal and think of the next step to get it.”

  • Det blev ett nytt PB med råge (tidigare runt 47.30) /…/ Hade inte du varit med så hade jag nog slagit av på takten runt 6 km så återigen, tack för peppen!
  • Väldigt nyttigt att få lite teori bakom ett schema. Bra förklaring till att passen är upplagda som de är.
  • Väldigt bra att få ett schema och att det följdes upp på de digitala träffarna. Hade jag kört helt själv hade jag nog skippat vissa pass de dagar det kändes lite motigt.

I met Erik through group running coaching sessions held at my gym. I had never really considered my running technique before going along to a session but soon realised that to get the most out of the sport I needed to go back to basics. Through one-on-one coaching sessions, Erik quickly identified some simple changes I could make and gave me techniques to practice on my own. His coaching was really clear, encouraging and non-judgemental and I felt really supported in my endeavours. Erik is an incredible athlete in his own right and was very humble in sharing his knowledge.

Erik always had a great format for each coaching session focusing on 3 or 4 things. Erik explains everything clearly and precisely so that it is easily understood and implemented. My running and my form improved tremendously with the sessions and the info that Erik gave me so I am very happy with his coaching.  Thank you!!!!


Ironman, New Zealand
Through the time I have been training under Erik I have been very appreciative. Erik was training for perhaps one of his biggest events in Kona, yet he still found time to take me onboard and get me started on a 24 week program for NZ Ironman 2020. I am enjoying getting into the structure of this program and am really looking forward to working with Erik over the next 5 months as he helps me to achieve my biggest challenge to date. I have never worked with a coach in triathlon before so am looking forward to seeing what I can achieve with Erik after ironman also.

My experience with Erik as a coach has been more than I could ask for. He is an expert with detail and numbers so he knows in depth how to progress one’s fitness in the most efficient way possible while keeping you healthy and reducing risk of injury. He not only has the theoretical knowledge but he has the real world experience to back it up from his years of competing at a high level. He has true wisdom and perspective that can give you a strong mental edge when you really need to push yourself. Erik is a great coach and a great person and has helped me tremendously on my athletic journey.

Always available to answer even the most stupid questions, in easy terms that are understandable even for the very beginners. Erik has a broad knowledge on everything that helps to improve performance, from nutrition to the actual training plan.


Ironman 70.3, Stockholm
När jag började träna triathlon så kändes det mycket tryggare med en coach. Erik kunde helheten och det räckte att genomföra passen och lita på strukturen. Träningsschemat var väl anpassat efter mina färdigheter och det märktes, månad för månad, att träningen gav resultat. Väldigt bra och gedigen feedback. Även småsaker kan göra stor skillnad i längden. Erik fick mig att göra det lilla extra.

Har upplevt coachingen som deltaljerad, noggrann, och genomtänkt. Förutsättningarna för måluppfyllelse är de bästa.


Ironman, Stockholm
Jag upplever Erik som oerhört kunnig, påläst och med en tydlig inriktning. Erik har ett syfte med alla pass och lämnar inga detaljer åt slumpen. Samtidigt finns det utrymme och känsla för när det är läge att bromsa snarare än att gasa, och de gånger kravet är att köra passen, trots trötthet, så har det visat sig vara en korrekt analys i efterhand.

Tack för en suverän Coaching inför SM milen i Stockholm 2018. Jag lärde mig mycket om vardagsträning som jag tagit med mej och har mycket nytta av när jag tränar. Det jag haft mest nytta av är att med planering och kontinuitet få det resultat man är ute efter!
