Get To Know Calle Bolund
Text by Calle Bolund
I want to introduce myself to you, since I in the beginning of 2021 I signed as an athlete for GASP and Better Bodies.
My name is Calle and I am 27 years old. I am married, and live in Stockholm. I have a teacher degree, but work full time as a PT / coach (@FlexPT.se on Instagram) and that this year I am opening one of Stockholm's largest and most modern gyms; Flex Fitness Farsta. (@FlexSverige on instagram). I competed in Classic Bodybuilding for the first time in 2012, and since then there have been about 20 competitions. On my list of accomplishments I have 3 gold as a Swedish Champion, 1 Nordic gold + overall, 1 silver from the European Championship and I got to the finals at the World Championships.
The dream of a career as a PRO
In 2020 and now in the 2021, I went all in to win a professional card in Classic Physique and make my debut in Bodybuilding -90 kg. Unfortunately, both competition preps have been canceled due to the current situation in the world. But I keep pushing and see if there will be any opening in the near future, with the eyes on the PRO card!
The passion for this sport and my training drives me forward and I love this lifestyle!
I will put full focus on the gym and the PT bit for a few years to come. I love this lifestyle, the routines, the progression, the people you meet and get to know, that you learn something new and develop every day! I love bodybuilding, and am both fascinated and motivated by people who go all in for what they really want to do. I love my hour in the gym where you can put everything aside and just get to it!
My letter combinations are a strength in life and adversity has made me where I am today.
As a person, I have my letter combinations, which entails an extreme "all-or-nothing" in most things in life. There is no middle ground. Sometimes it can put me in situations that get a little tricky, but most of the time, adversity also breeds success and you have to try, dare to invest and dare to fail in order to succeed even better next time, in my opinion. I have had some setbacks in life, just like everyone else, but clichéd enough I can say that I probably would not be where I am today, if it were not for these setbacks.
You can find me on Instagram; @CBflexter or at the gym Flex Fitness in Stockholm, where you are welcome to come by and run a workout!
