Eik or Oddrun Eik Gylfadottir comes from Iceland but spent much of her adult life in Copenhagen, Denmark. Eik decided to join us here in Abu Dhabi to test out if her fair skin and ginger hair could handle the desert heat.
Eik has been working in the fitness industry since 2009 starting as a Personal Trainer but having more questions than answers on how the human body works and what motivates people to live an active healthy lifestyle was driven on to know more. This led her on an academic pathway where she completed a degree in Physical Therapy and Lifestyle Coaching.
Eik is both a qualified Yoga and CrossFit coach and most recently gained qualifications is Osteopathy which is a medical practice that emphasizes the treatment of medical disorders through the manipulation and massage of the bones, joints, and muscles.
Besides from being a nerd around her books Eik is one of the Meridian Regionals competitive “Dóttir´s” of Iceland. Since discovering CrossFit early in 2013 she has competed twice at the Meridian Regionals as an individual and in 2016 competed with Team Nordvest at the 2016 CrossFit Games.
