ZONE:Tell us abit about yourself who are the item Palle Frida?
P: I am a hardliving guy…
I´m impulsive like hell and love when things happening fast…
I was born in Blekinge but been moving around to different places
in Sweden to finally settle down with Frida and our animals
(got 2 cat´s and 2 dog´s) in Sthlm…
My dream is to start a Gym in USA together with the love of my life (Frida),
we´re going to visit my realatives in The States pretty soon
F: I´m a young (-Palle´s laughing-) girl from the middle of Sweden
who moved to the Capital city to study but got stuck…
I´ve lived in Sthlm for almost 7 years now and have never been struck
by the desire of moving "home" until I met Palle…
I think he has gotten me to setle down a bit and now we are soon moving
to a small house with a big plot where we will
arrange barbeque partys with Palle as first chef ;-)


ZONE: How did you got bit by the iron bug in the first place
& how did ya get into competing?

P: I got fat when I did the military service...
tried to get in shape with the dumbbells in a small gym,
and then I was stucked with this shit! ;-)
F: I got introduced to gym training by my Track and Field trainer,
I found it very giving and stimulating and soon started
to work at a small gym close to home.
Moved to Sthlm for studies but worked at the same time as
swimming teacher and gym instructor.
I think my decision of entering the stage was born ´cause I´ve always
had goals in my previously sports.
I mean, when you play soccer you have the games to measure
which team ´s the better, but when your dealing with a individual sport
It´s harder to measure you skills…
So that's why a dream of entering the stage occurred in my head…


ZONE:What is the best part of this sport?

P: I love the pain that makes you a winner!!!!
F: To see your body improve all the time as well as your mind…
(and I love the fact that Palle allows me to eat peanut butter!!)


ZONE:And the worst part?
P: I hate losing but I love this sport…so no bad things!
F: I do not fancy to wake up in the middle of the night
with full muscle spasm in my left calf…
and sometimes I find Palle a bit sulky ;-)


ZONE: What is your diet like?
Both offseason & before a show?

Both: We always eat clean good food,
most chicken & rice, chicken & rice chicken & chicken
Palle: But I have a feeling that we after the LP will visit
McD for a few Chocolate muffins if Frida´s going to decide

ZONE: And what about your training.
Offseason & before a show?

Both: We always train the same...always hard!
Harder before a contest!!
And our split schedule looks a bit different


ZONE: Where do you think most people go wrong before a show?
Palle: People listening to others...and eat to much carbs

Zone: how did you guys meet?
Palle: Frida and I meet in the gym…
She wanted me to help her with her contest diet…
now I´m helping her with everything and she´s inspire me
to manage through the days ;-)
-She ´s the best a man can get!!!!
