“My first meeting with the stage was when I was ten years old and since then it has been my canvas. A place where I can entertain and also express myself.”
Start of Fitness Journey
Born and raised in Norway, Lone grew up with a desire to be on stage; she became highly skilled at dancing, and believed that she was born to entertain in the spotlight.
Although she’s naturally developed a lean figure in the dancing studio, Lone became unhappy with her skinny appearance. At this point, she began researching and learning how to gain lean muscle mass – ultimately, this is what led her into the gym.
At the age of 16, in 2011, Lone had embarked on her fitness journey.
Over the next year, Lone managed to sculpt an impressive figure – as she had a strong base to begin her muscular development, she was ready for the stage by the time she turned 17.
It wasn’t long until Lone was standing in-front of the judges at the 2012 Amateur Norway Open, as a Bikini Fitness model. Although she was facing more experienced athletes, her hard work paid off – Lone walked away from the show with the trophy after placing 1st.
This dream start motivated Lone to comitt her future to the sport; at this point, the youngster was determined to make a name for herself in the fitness industry.
Only a few months after tasting victory at her debut show, Lone entered her second – the 2012 Norwegian Championships. But she wasn’t finished yet.
Over the next 2 years, Lone appeared in a further 3 competitions; managing to replicate her success and add 2 more trophies to her early collection.
By this point, Lone had become known as a rising star in the fitness industry. She wanted to use her exposure to help others achieve their goals, and worked towards earning her personal training certifications.
In 2014, Lone created a website and social media profiles; using the internet to reach out to her fans and offer her services as a fitness coach.
“Fitness and bodybuilding is a visual sport and it is all about how you look. It’s not easy, you need to train hard and stay focused.”
Lone has trained rigorously in the gym since she began her journey in 2011 – training 5 days per week. The Norwegian enjoys training multiple muscle groups, but chooses to isolate her leg days; she believes training her legs twice a week is the best way to develop her figure.
