Erik Svensson, Founder
Born in Sweden and raised in California and Arizona, Erik lived most of his life in the US before moving back to Sweden in 2015. His interest in health, performance and the body began in high school while competing in and coaching swimming. The 4-Hour Body by Timothy Ferriss was the seed that started it. Erik then continued his athletic swim career at the Arizona State University (Division 1) graduating with honors in Business Sustainability. He competed with the team for just under a year and then continued with his studies while competing in triathlons. Erik’s interests spread into other movement disciplines; running, climbing, biking, yoga, soccer, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and coaching friends and family.
Back in Sweden to study Leadership for Sustainability his interest for movement began to merge with sustainability. The connection between the impact of our health and capability reaches into the community, social society and the world. Health impacts all the Three Pillars of Sustainability; Financial, Social and Environmental. Erik wrote his Master’s thesis on The Effects of Flexible Work Arrangements on Sedentary Behavior & Physical Activity: A Global Sustainability Issue. After graduating from Malmö University in Leadership for Sustainability, he launched MOVE. to focus on Workplace Wellness - since the MOVE. launch it has grown and expanded into areas including Movement, Running, and Foot Coaching.
