Norwegian Trainer

By January 19, 2012Nat-news

Thor 2 will begin filming in London this summer, and Garcy found a link with the Norwegian trainer who will be getting Natalie in shape for the film. The article is in Norwegian, but Kris was kind enough to write up a rough translation.

The full translation is after the jump but below is the specific Natalie mention.

I’m specially happy to train Natalie because she has recently given birth and I’m specialized in “prenatal” and “postpartum” which means alot of my clients are mothers and I’m specialized in getting back into shape after childbirth.
– I’m always happy to take on a new challenge with my clients, celebrity or not.



Former MTV host Johanna Gronneberg have made a career as personal trainer in Hollywood. And now it’s official that she’ll be training Natalie Portmans for the upcoming Thor sequel.

After her MTV career in Stockholm and New York, Gronneberg moved back
to Norway to be a host for norwegian TV3 productions.

Johanna was also in the norwegian TV series “Ja vi elsker Hollywood”.

Recently she decided on a new career and educated herself as personal
trainer and thanks to her contacts in Hollywood she has gotten some
celebrity clients.

“I think I’ve become famous for my unorthodox training methods. I’d
say I train people ‘the norwegian way’ and Hollywood have always loved
something new.”

Recently she’s trained Louis D’esposito at Marvell Studios, who is the
director of “Thor 2”. – I’ve always nagged on him to film the Thor-movie in Norway, it’s nonsense that they are filming in London when so much of it is set in Norway. Maybe that’s why he took me onboard as personal trainer for the actors in London.

Natalie Portman started her career with the Star Wars movies and have
in recent years had big success with the psycological thriller Black
Swan for which she got an Oscar and Golden Globe as best female
actress. Last summer she gave birth to son Aleph with her fiancé Benajmin Millepied.

    Natalie wants to stay fit and look great as always, so she makes for her new job exactly the right thing. She is now with their new coach for Thor2 training and that’s just fine.
