About the founder
From small town beginnings in Queensland Australia, founder and creator of Aktivaal, Lindy Sorensen has always been fitness orientated. From a young age she was always heavily involved in a number of sporting activities and dance recitals.
Fast forward a few years and a Business Degree under her belt, Lindy still craved for her life to involve health and fitness. After 10 years of working in the Sydney corporate jungle, Lindy decided to put it all on black, leave her job and study personal training and went onto become a successful outdoor fitness trainer which she adored. Lindy then fell pregnant (with the most horrendous morning sickness!) which made her reassess her priorities and take some much needed time out to raise her two beautiful girls.
Always busy and energetic, it wasn’t until she became a mum that she found it harder to make time to workout and stay motivated and the possibility of hitting the gym was slim to none. The busy mum began exploring ways to get back into a fitness routine and maintain a level of fitness she was happy with but it had to be flexible and close to home (like, in her loungeroom!). And it was at this moment that Aktivaal was born.
Lindy is now a mum of 4 young children and lives in the Southern Highlands on a large cattle property. Trying to fit exercise into her daily routine is now even more of a challenge.
