Niina Karstunen

Panelist / Wellness Specialist / Firstbeat Technologies Ltd

Niina is an exercise physiologist (M.Sc. from the University of Jyväskylä, Finland 2015) who started her career as a fitness tester but soon realized that deeply sports-oriented approach to wellbeing is not enough, there’s more in the field of wellness to explore. Currently she enjoys her work as wellness specialist at Firstbeat Technologies in Jyväskylä, popularizing physiology and using her knowledge of recovery, exercise and nutrition to help people sleep and feel better and manage their stress levels.

With an endless curiosity towards the biology of human body Niina is fascinated to see how technology can help us understand our body reactions to the choices we make in everyday life. She thinks that seeing is believing – and considering the amazing things wearable technology has already shown us from our bodies the future is going to be oh so bright!
