Reminiscing the first video

Someone asked me the other day, when did I make the first Iceland Fitness video.

I actually had to take a couple of minutes to think about it. The first Iceland Fitness video we ever did was in Oktober 2011.

I wanted to try to help my clients, the Iceland fitness girls, to get published abroad. So we made this female fitness motivation video with a few of my bikini fitness competitors. 

Most of them were going to compete in 6 weeks at the 2011 IFBB Icelandic cup so their physique was pretty good, not stage ready but in good shape.

My friend the director Ari Alexander Ergis Magnússon volunteered to help me with the video. He suggested that we recruited one of the best camera men in Iceland mr Bjarni Felix Bjarnason to shoot it.

At first we did´nt really know what we were going to shoot. I lined up a few exercises for the girls and the director called action. 4 hours later we had enough of material to make 2 videos. The amazing Eva Lind Höskuldsdóttir edited the video and most of the Iceland fitness videos ever since.

An Icelandic store, called Altis, sponcered the girls with Under Armour clothing and ever since that day they have helped me with Under Armour sportswear for my videos.

"video"

This video has had 141.000 views in Vimeo and 5.000 in my youtube account. When I was looking for my video I noticed that a few people have published this video as their own and the views there were almost 300.000.

So in total the view count is almost 500.000. This is actually not the most watched video we´ve done because our Harlem shake video went up to 1m views.

It´s really interesting to look at these girls now only three and a half year later and what they have accomplished.
