Astrid Bengtson was born and raised in Sweden, where she was introduced to the world of Rhythmic Gymnastics at age 3. In her late teens, she made the transition from competitor to coach, which eventually lead to her career as a personal trainer in America.
Overcoming severe knee injuries by rehabilitating herself back from multiple surgeries sparked her interest in corrective exercising, and in 2011 she opened up her own private training studio in Boston, focusing wholeheartedly on training aimed towards restoring (and maintaining) optimal muscular function.
Aside from constantly seeking out the latest training and education within her field, she is also obsessed with science (self-proclaimed science nerd), hip hop, Super Nintendo and her awesome chef-husband, Sam.
