Exciting and passionate are two words to describe Tanja. After that you have to find your own words if you can.

Listen to her and I promise the hour will pass faster than you could imagine.

This personal trainer for the Swedish version of Biggest Loser is one mighty little package.

“I was born to move!” says Tanja Djelevic, who started her life’s work in fitness at a very young age when she started dance lessons. She’s never looked back and now enjoys an enthusiastic following – from celebrity clientele including Matt Dillon and Rachel Weisz, to students who flock to her high-energy classes at Gold’s Gym, Crunch Fitness and Equinox Fitness Club in the Hollywood, Calif., area.

Tanja studied at the prestigious Swedish Academy of Fitness Education and holds a masters in psychology with emphasis in stress management therapy and behavioral life coaching, as well as fitness certifications from Reebok, AFAA, ACE and Powerhouse Pilates.

Tanja’s Gaiam workout DVDs draw on her range of expertise in disciplines including Pilates, BalanceBall / stability ball, kickboxing, aerobics, interval training, body sculpting, functional fitness and more. Born and raised in Kristianstad, Sweden, she was a resident fitness columnist at Swedish Cosmopolitan and coauthored of the health coaching book “Livskraft” (Life Force). The work closest to her heart includes founding the Loud Teenz health education and self-esteem program for pre-teens and teens.
