Speaker: Tiina Hoffman, Exercise Physiologist, Firstbeat

A lot of us have heard the universal recommendation that 10 000 steps per day means that you are active enough, but is it enough or sometimes even too much? This webinar takes a look at physical activity recommendations and benefits, gives a few practical tips for starting and building up a physical activity program, one step at a time, and shares some Firstbeat Lifestyle Assessment database results of how active people really are.

Tiina is an Exercise Physiologist who works at Firstbeat as a Wellness Specialist. Growing up as a skier, Tiina spent 4 years cross-country ski racing and later 4 year coaching at the University of Alaska, Anchorage. After moving back to Finland, she found her way to Firstbeat after several years in overtraining and heart rate variability field studies at the Research Institute for Olympic Sports and the University of Jyväskylä. To maintain a good balance in her own life, she enjoys the outdoors – kayaking, hiking, xc-skiing and escaping to her cabin in the woods.
