Richie Hedderman

I started Hurricane Fitness 4 years ago. Starting out as a Boxer at the age of 11 and having been involved in various other sports since I was 6 years old, winning International medals in Boxing, I began running fitness classes in 2011 and since then have gone on to work alongside World and Olympic champions, amateur and professional bodybuilders, clinical and general populations from the ages of 9 to 88 years old, male and female.

Thomas Campidell

Fascinated by human beings in general, I love learning and teaching concepts that enhance our experience of life. Lifting weights and nutrition are a big part of that as well as constant self improvement. I am currently doing my MSc in Psychology and plan to work as a coach in the near future.

Fredrik Tonstad Vårvik

My interest in science and research developed more and more during my bachelors. I am currently doing my Masters degree in Exercise Physiology with resistance training as my main interest. Besides working with research and my studies, I also run the FredFitology blog.

Anastasia Zinchenko

While synthesizing fancy molecules and creating artificial cells for my PhD, I realized that lifting heavy stuff is the “magic pill” to stay cool. This is when I decided to combine my scientific background with my passion for fitness and nutrition. When you take a scientist, powerlifter, bodybuilder, coach, vegan and a rational thinker and shake it well, you get me.

Other cool facts: Fluent in Russian, German and English, PhD at Cambridge, National level powerlifter, dissertation at CalTech, MSc with distinction.

Since my teens I've been fascinated by the human body. What it’s capable of. What it can adapt to. When it comes the training and nutrition for aesthetics, performance, and health, science is an immense source of information. Great! However: it’s immense. And boring. (To most people, at least.)
A ‘healthy obsession’ with the human body turned into a Bachelor’s in Kinesiology, and what I like to do most now: giving motivated people science-based tools to be the best version of themselves.
