Karsten Jensen’s Reviews / References / Testimonials
The Danish Badminton Federation has worked with Karsten Jensen as a Strength Coach from 2001 to 2007. Karsten was responsible for the program design and supervision of the training of the highest ranked and the most talented players. This has been very beneficial for the players and also for me as a badminton coach. Karsten has been very inspiring in his thorough professional attitude towards his work. Karsten also contributed through challenging players and coaches in all areas of strength and conditioning. I give him my highest recommendations. – Steen P.
I have met with Karsten on several occasions to consult with him regarding high performance training. He is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable strength and conditioning specialists I know, and I have learned something new from every conversation we have had. If you are a trainer or coach looking to get the edge on the competition, or want to provide better service to your clients, I highly recommend you consider working with Karsten. He also has several great training resources for both personal trainers and strength coaches. – Josh H.
In my work as a strength and conditioning coach with the Danish Naval Frogman Unit, I received invaluable support from Karsten Jensen. Karsten’s knowledge and passion for strength and conditioning make him an inspiration for other strength coaches as well as for athletes. Strength and Conditioning in the Naval Frogmans Unit have centered around a culture of aerobic training in the form of running. Karsten coached me to change the traditional aerobic training protocol towards a more functional approach. The change is perceived by the soldiers to be more relevant and challenging and has also manifested a significantly reduced rate of injury. Karsten Jensen introduced a “multiple quality block system,” and it fits our daily training perfectly. Karsten’s knowledge and friendly personality will be missed in the Frogman Unit. However, his ideas on strength and conditioning will remain as long as I am the strength and conditioning coach. – Laust P.
As a professional athlete I have tried tons of different regimes in regards to strength training. Working with Karsten made me understand how itâ€™s not necessarily about working harder but working smarter. My busy schedule does not allow for me to work two hours in the gym every day, so I have to find other solutions. Karsten helped me put together a program that was tailor made to my schedule, my sport and my body type, allowing me to stay injury free for the entire period we have been working together. On top of that, I feel more explosive and agile than ever before! Time spent in the weight room allows you to perform on court. Do not take it for granted! – Peter B.
