Magnus Lygdback is a world-renowned Swedish health and wellness expert, entrepreneur, and life coach. He developed the "Magnus Method" through working with athletes, actors, artists and high performance business entrepreneurs for more than 15 years. The training philosophy at the center of his method is embracing the “ethos of an athlete” - approaching life fitness with the same specific intensity and structure that an athlete would, whilst also maintaining a balanced and healthy life.
Magnus has been working within the entertainment industry for many years introducing more and more people to his unique method. He has a long list of clients that he regularly trains including Avicii, Max Martin, Alexander Skarsgard, Swedish House Mafia, Britney Spears, Mike Posner, Ben Affleck, Lukas Graham, Harry Styles and Alicia Vikander to name a few.
With a background as an elite Ice Hockey player, as well as having worked with professional athletes of all sports, Magnus is able to use his experience to design his clients' regimes in “sport-specific” modes. He tailors their training, movements, nutrition, and daily structure towards their high intensity lifestyles and holistic goals.
Exercises in mental focus and preparation are an equally important part of the "Magnus Method". Through applying individually tailored psychological tasks, much in the same way that a sports psychologist would for a professional athlete, Magnus has consistently produced stronger humans, both in mind and body.
Due to the overwhelming success of his method, Magnus has been brought on as a consultant and advisor to brands such as Nike and Casall. He has developed training programmes and lectures for other fitness experts, and advised on marketing initiatives such as Nike’s Icona Pop campaign. Magnus also helped launch the ubiquitous Nike Free training sneaker, as both an ambassador and advisor.
Magnus is currently training Alicia Vikander for her role as Lara Croft in the much anticipated new Tomb Raider film. Before that he trained Ben Affleck on Justice League and Alex Skarsgard for the 2016 blockbuster movie Tarzan. Magnus applied his sports, dancing, and martial arts background to create a unique training programme for Alex, and it was a huge success. The blogosphere buzzed about Alex’s extraordinary transformation as you can see here: THE LEGEND OF TARZAN - Official Trailer.
. Magnus' method has inspired his clients from across the globe to reach their health and fitness goals, and soon the rest of the world will be able to benefit from his expertise! He will soon be launching a new website with downloadable content, videos and guides enabling even more people to start using the "Magnus Method".
When he’s not on a music tour, on a film set, or training his high profile clients, Magnus enjoys food, wine collecting, spending time with his family, and supporting charities such as DKMS (Deletebloodcancer.org) and Augie’s Quest.
