May I introduce?
At this place in our blog we would like to introduce you to our Master Trainers. The people that spread the word about our training philosophy and impart this knowledge in official aerobis Certification Workshops. So right here you will get to know all the aeroSlingified coaches that will share their knowledge with you.
We start this series off with Jens Pilkahn. Jens is a prospective sports teacher from Moers. On the side, however, he has been working as a fitness coach and personal trainer for years. The number of aerobis products in his gym has become uncountable and he knows our equipment inside out. His training is always functional and he lives to enthuse you about functional training.
