Unless someone like you cares a whole lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not. - The Lorax

She coaches other elite athletes and uses specific methods and breathing tools from her own free diving career. Camilla knows how to resist the urge to breathe, staying calm, and focused 66 meters under water. She uses these tools, when her clients need to find their focus under pressure, whether sport or professional performances. She teaches workshops in sports psychological performance optimization for corporate professionals and elite athletes.

Lena Vindt Holm, Fashion Design Technologist, BA Nutrition and Health, BA in sports science
Lena is the owner of OCR Odense and lenergy.me - Personal Trainer & Nutritionist and works in Vain Dane Athletic's hometown of Odense, where she has a number of different training classes, mostly outdoor training with focus on using what is available in the streets and in front of you. She is a Vain Dane Athletic ambassador, because of her commitment to health and nutrition, as well as being a role model for teenagers and people, who value outdoor training.
Lena is a keen OCR athlete and she takes the time to train and boost peoples confidence, whilst making sure everyone is able to keep up by scaling the exercises. That is what a successful personal trainer does - listen and guides. We love working her!
Rikke Hansen, Design Technologist, Fashion and Textile, commercial lifeguard instructor, and professional mermaid.
Rikke was our campaign model for the shoot we did in Kattegatcentret's Oceanarium aquarium. When she is not modelling for Vain Dane Athletic, she works as a commercial lifeguard instructor and performs as a mermaid in The Blue Planet Aquarium in Copenhagen. Her passion for the ocean also made her buy a boat, Chita, a 47ft yacht supposedly from 1913 - without the skills to sail it. Her passion for the ocean is evident.
Rikke, like Camilla, dives in oceans around the world and experiences the amount of plastic found in the oceans.
Line helped Vain Dane Athletic update social media during the photoshoot in Kattegatcentret. She ensured that people could follow the to models during the whole shoot by posting videos and photo showing what a great and fun day, we all had. She has also worked with us on other events and always brings her A-game. For most companies a social media consultant is worth hiring to ensure that you are free to direct the shoot and be present - not having your nose buried in your phone.
