Start a fitness clothing brand
I’ve always wanted to do that. I’ve got many ideas for design, and quite frankly I think that the fit of most brands out there is quite bad. I have a very hard time finding workout wear that both fits AND looks good. I don’t even care if I break even, it’s just something I really want. Maybe a spare time project in the future!
Open a gym
Some time in the future this will definitely happen! My gym will be more of a street gym. Graffiti on the walls, floor that handles Olympic lifting, good lighting, definitely no Rix FM commercial radio. A garage-basement style gym where you train for real world no BS results. Through my 17 years of weight lifting, I’ve been a member of all kinds of gyms. To be honest, most gyms try to target a very wide audience and end up being more like cafes where the members barely exert themselves. But I’ve come across a few gold mines that serve in my memory as models for how mine will be.
Cruise the Caribbean
I turned down a job offer as bar supervisor on a Royal Caribbean celebrity cruise ship in the Bahamas to enroll into Umeå University and pursue my degree. I didn’t regret it, but I definitely want to do a cruise some day, even as a passenger.
Dead lift 600 lb / 272 kg
One of the best exercises and markers for overall strength. I’ve pulled ligaments in my back a few times so I’m not taking any more chances of trying to break my PR of 528 lbs (240 kg), but who knows? Maybe some day in the future I’ll reach this goal.
Photograph animals in the Galapagos islands
Completely unique animals live here, such as diving iguanas. Galapagos is off the coas of south America and is the animal photographers paradise. Also one of the best places in the world to dive. Quite expensive trip though!
