Start to Run
Originally from Buckingham in the UK, Fiona arrived in Brussels 9 years ago. She joined Friskis immediately, because it is the perfect all-round fitness training if you want to develop your strength, mobility, and coordination. And to do it in a group is great fun, which boosts the effect.
She became a Friskis volunteer to share her passion for running. To learn more about running can be challenging, and Fiona is convinced of that the best way to do that is by sharing her knowledge.
Fiona loves the relaxed atmosphere at Friskis and the philosophy of having fun while doing sport.
“There is nothing wrong with having fun! We seem to think that once we're adults we no longer need to play. However, at Friskis you are allowed to play. Doing silly exercise with your running friends or jumping around in Friskis jympa you can enjoy even as an adult. If we enjoy the sports we do, we are far more likely to continue and be consistent. That's Friskis in a nutshell!”
Fionas personal motto is "Variety is the spice of life". Mix activities and try new things is the way to go. Fiona have many great Friskis memories, and hopefully there are plenty more good memories to be made at Friskis!

Wim joined Friskis in 2019 and hails all the way from... Belgium! As an enthusiastic member he enjoys that Friskis is a fun and healthy way to meet other people. He particularly appreciates the relaxed atmosphere and the fact there’s no competition – just fun, healthy exercise. He has treasured many memories of his Friskis experience so far but confesses that the four-day training in Sweden holds a special place in his heart. Wim’s life motto is that you should focus on whatever brings you happiness (such as doing Friskis!).
