"My goal is to maintain my body for years to come and motivate younger generations to take care of their body and health. My dream is to live out of the physical exercise, just like I do now, and help others by inspiring them. I do not just want to work out as a hobby, but as a livelihood.
Besides, I like to set new and higher goals and reach them."

What Motivates You

"Earlier in my life, my motivation was to look at other elderly boys training hard at the gym. I wanted to be like them. Currently, what motivates me is to achieve the goals I set for myself. I'm not competing in fitness, but I'm equally motivated to have a stage body, so I’m constantly in competition with myself. Seeing other major athletes, both their exercise videos and photos, motivates me. But what drives me most is to be a model for others, especially for my children, once showing them what a healthy lifestyle means is very important to me."


Stian Bjornes is a Norwegian athlete with over 14 years of experience, who has been focused on training, health and progress for a long time now. For him, the gym is his therapy. He believes that you have to find balance and create your own way to success, by changing your lifestyle.
Besides training, he’s an Instagram influencer. In his spare time, he likes to travel and to be with his family and friends. Also, he likes to make good food and watch MMA sports and UFC. For him, taking care of hisbody is not a competition, but a satisfying thing for himself. And what motivates him is to be the best person he can be.
