Magnus is a world-renowned Swedish health and wellness expert, entrepreneur, and life coach. For over 18 years, Magnus has been working as a trainer, and today he is one of the most sought-after personal trainers around the world, his client list comprised of international celebrity artists, actors, and musicians.

Throughout his career, Magnus has developed the “Magnus Method”, a training philosophy that embraces the “ethos of an athlete” - approaching life fitness with the same specific intensity and structure that an athlete would, whilst also maintaining a balanced and healthy life where everything from training, lifestyle, nutrition, and mental preparation, all of that matters. 

When focusing on his own training, Magnus likes to switch it up. He always comes back to weight lifting and strength training in the gym, but also does martial arts, including ju jitsu, indoor floor ball, kick a ball, roll around wrestling, and so on.

I believe in the philosophy of holistic training and having heart, body, and mind all in balance.

What your best nutrition tips?

Take out bad stuff and put in good stuff.

It’s about balance, and simplifying things. A fist full of protein, a fist full of energy, two fists full of vegetables. It’s a system that people can understand and take with them on the go.

What's your favorite type of training?

I like to mix it up. It can be everything from weight lifting and strength training in the gym, to martial arts, wrestling, and so on. 

How do you find balance with training?

You should never do more than 6 days a week, and you should do at least 3 days a week. The sweet spot is probably around 5 days week, with cardio 2-3 times a week, strength 3-4 times a week, and those can be combined

What are your favorite training tools?

I’m a big fan of the Magnus Capsule, a new portable training kit, because it can come with me where I go. We chose those tools for a reason. I particularly love the Exetube, I can target all muscles in the body that way.

What does Forever Better mean to you?

We develop and learn and move forward every single day. Always get better, that’s a core part of the Magnus Method.

When I’m working with an artist, it matters to me what time they get out of bed, what kind of workout we do, what they eat, what kind of mental preparation do we do for a show. All of that matters.
