Public speaking

Arnar has given numerous lectures. On them he goes over everything that comes to mind  running and exercise. He also gives lectures on goal setting, the mental aspect and other aspects that make the path to success more fun.  Lectures can be customized as needed.  

The most popular lectures:

  • How do we take the first steps.

  • How do we train correctly.

  • Everything is possible if we can go slow enough.

  • How do we make goal setting fun.

Running challenge is a fun way for companies to strengthen their work ethic. Arnar then creates a specialized program where everybody has a common goal. For example, running or walking 100 km in one month. Lectures and running challenges can be combined to make running more fun.


"Arnar gave an interesting lecture on running economy and sensible exercises for us in Genki. Arnar's ambition and passion is contagious and as a result many of us ran our first half and half marathon.

— Ólafur Bogason, founder of Genki Instruments
