Get to know Henriette, BARA's Influencer Marketing Collaborator.
Please introduce yourself: Who are you and what should we know about you?
My name Henriette Næss Ebbesen and I am 26 years old. I have one year education in Arctic Adventure Tourism, and am now studying Leadership, innovation and marketing while working as an Influencer Marketing Collaborator for BARA Sportswear, based in Harstad.
I grew up on a small Island called Vega, which is in the middle of Norway, in the coast of Helgeland. My mom and dad are farmers, so I normally say that I am actually much better at driving my dad's tractors than taking selfies. Believe it or not 😅
Nonsense aside, I am a creative and super curious young woman who loves new challenges. The most difficult question I get is to choose between love and curiosity … I really do not know what to choose. Do you?
In my spare time, I love running, fishing, climbing, being with family and friends and a good hike with or without skis. I often relax by playing some piano and singing northern norwegian music.
What's your favourite sports or gym activity and why?
RUNNING!! I totally fell in love with running two years ago.The only thing you need is activewear, and running shoes. And do it your way! Easy, peasy.
What are your must-have gym or workout essentials?
Comfortable Running shoes and BARA Sportswear ❤
What motivates you to stay active?
ENDORPHINS!! I am sure that I am not only speaking for myself when I say that you never regret training, sports and activity. I always feel happier and lighter after a hike, run, working in the garden, or whatever you can do outside. It really does not matter how shitty I felt in the star. I feel like a superwoman after activity. Cliche, but true!
What are your active goals for 2021?
To run 10 0000 KM in 43 Minutes.
I would actually like to join an official or virtual competition, so if you have any tips please let me know!
What's your favourite product from BARA and why?
Ooh, that's hard. First of all, I think everybody should try the Pastel Resistance Bands. They are supercute (pink, purple and green, different strength), and there are so many “fun” exercises that make your body burn on youtube. Perfect these days when Covid-19 is still an issue.
Leggings: Reflective Shape Tights, because I like the high waist and that it has medium compression and reflective print. Here in Northern Norway it is so dark in the winter time, and therefore a reflective print is important for me when I run.
Favourite workout quote?
“Dørståkkmila - The doorstep mile. Leaving your front door is the longest mile of any journey”
This does not only work for activity and training, but also dreams, homework, and so on.
What are your best tips to stay active?
First of all; Make a great playlist on Spotify with your type of exercise music.
Here is my playlist if you need any tips: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7kls6xPc1OzQ2odehDs6Sl?si=167537ebe7854c35
ALSO: Make activeness something positive and important for you. Make it a priority and habit for you and your friends. Get more knowledge about WHY training is important; It promotes brain growth, Increases your life expectancy, reduces your risk of injury, improves your quality of life and health, Strong Mental health, Fights cancer, community and friendship, and so on. They have done several studies on these topics!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
31 years old, finished my studies, and am still here working for BARA Sportswear. I hope Covid-19 is not a problem any more, and that I have managed to experience countries such as Italy, France, and The Faroe Island.
If you could recommend one BARA Sportswear product to a friend; what would it be and why?
When I started to work for BARA I was actually not the biggest fan of Prints on leggings.
Until I turned into a #BARAaddict, must have:
PRINT, POCKETS, HIGH WAIST AND REFLECTIVE CLOTHING.
So I would recommend trying: Daisy Shape Tights 2.0 – medium compression, High Waist and two pockets 🌸
