Gudni Gunnarsson: Life coach/fitness instructor, Best-selling Author & Creator of GlóMotion

My NativeAdVantage:


Gudni Gunnarsson is a life coach and fitness instructor, a best-selling author in Iceland, the U.S. and the creator of GlóMotion. He began his thirty-five-year career as a fitness trainer and quickly became a pioneer in the health and fitness industry. As founder of Iceland‘s first professional gym and Fitness & Nutrition Magazine, Gunnarsson established himself as a leading contributor to the holistic approach to mind and body development.

Relocating to Los Angeles to share his innovative techniques, Gunnarsson worked as a life management and fitness consultant for celebrities and business executives.  He also maintained a private studio for a devoted group of clients and held quarterly teacher training workshops. While in the U.S., Gunnarsson realized the limitations of physical exercise without a mental component.  A lifelong practitioner of yoga, he set out to develop a revolutionary fitness system for mind, body, and soul, which he called Rope Yoga Fitness and is now known as GlóMotion. A mindful fitness and nutritional program empowering people to be the change in their own lives.

Gunnarsson resides in Reykjavík, Iceland, with his wife, Gudlaug Petursdottir and their son Gunnar. He is the President of Glóandi Inc. and regularly teaches workshops and makes appearances at speaking engagements around the world.

His U.S. book debut, PRESENCE IS POWER was released in APRIL, 2015 and is already an AMAZON Best Seller!!

What do you do best?

I inspire and encourage people to be the change in their lives, to live fully and glow.

What makes you the best?

Based on my own experience and education, I began developing the tools and procedures to aid and support my clients’ quest for healing and self-improvement holistically. These tools became the seven steps of prosperity—which I refere to as transformational physiology, the framework for energetic abundance. GloMotion is the name of the approach and the intent is to maximize the energetic radiance of the individual, the glow one emits by harnessing and managing the life force we have at our command. This approach unifies physical exercise with a seven-step philosophy awareness program. My work encourages and supports personal transformation, increased presence and awareness. The physical exercises of GloMotion alleviate pain and stress, increase mobility and develop core abdominal strength. The center of the body is the source of life’s energy.

My knowledge and ability to inspire and empower people is based on my personal growth journey and shared with integrity from my heart.

What we attract in life is in accordance to how we truly feel about ourselves and that all you devote your awareness to will grow and prosper.

When we think about what we don´t want, we actually want it – attract it.

My contention is that only by forgiving your self, your so called past indiscretions in the now, are you able to retrieve your personal power and be fully responsible for how you invest or devote your energy and time.

The act of personal forgiveness is what allows you to retrieve the energy invested in remorse and regrets and to be completely responsible for all your actions conscious or unconscious so you may experience what I refer to as prosperity consciousness and thus how to maximize your allowance or permission to redirect the energy purposefully in an inspired manner to what you truly want and feel worthy of.

How will you become the best? 

By living courageously and with integrity, by being the change that I encourage others to experience and express.

What are your aspirations?

Personal: To be present, live fully from my heart and glow as I travel the world sharing my gifts, experience and the blessings that fellow beings in other cultures and societies enjoy. To live each moment in the energy of gratitude.

Business: To be a world-class inspirational speaker and a best selling author the world over. To encourage people everywhere to glow through the practice of GloMotion and Presence Is Power. To enjoy the journey and the fruit of my love moment by moment fully emerged in gratitude and awe.

What fascinates you?

I am totally inspired and fascinated by ingenuity of the human spirit. The fact that if you can conceive of it, you can create it has become the new norm. The so-called impossible, only takes a bit longer to manifest or to produce.

Favorite Motto:

To will is to act! All that you devote your awareness will grow and prosper.  Where there is a will, there is a way. Whether you believe you can or whether you believe you can´t you are probably right. Whether you argue for your limitations or greatness, you must prove your perspective.
