Søren Fruerlund

Instructor for personal trainers, Health Coaches, Perception Coaches and Nutrition Coaches.

My name is Søren and I’m Head of education and an instructor at the Trainers Institute.

I’ve worked full time as a personal trainer since 2010. Besides that, I’ve worked as a Club Manager at SATS and been a part of a group who was responsible for developing Personal training in SATS Denmark.

Beside the Trainer Institute I own Fruerlund Care in Aarhus where we work with chronic illnesses, rehabilitation, coaching and performance. Usually with complex case histories. I’m a part of the CHEK Institute as well as a mentor for the CHEK Academy.

It’s important for me that we share the knowledge and experience we get to help as many people as we can without loosing quality. That is why we started the Trainers Institute (TrænerAkademiet) in 2015. We hope our students get a great experience and get the feeling that we take them seriously.
