Hey, I am SO glad you found me.

Hello and welcome! I’m Liina. I started Basement Queens out of frustration turned inspiration. I wanted to get in awesome shape — but my life had changed:  I’m a divorced, busy, working mom. A former gym rat, now I use Beachbody programs to get in shape — and became a coach so I could help other busy people get their health back! I want to help you.

I have also become a certified group fitness instructor, and teach CORE DE FORCE classes in Minneapolis, MN. Find out more about CORE DE FORCE.


Before deciding to try and get in shape again I worked hard to accept my body as it was. Then I tried to come at losing weight and getting strong from a purely physical angle with haphazard attempts at rigorous routines. What I realized is I had to drop all of that and come into bettering my body from the angle of bettering my mind. To give my brain the best day, my body needs a jump start. Every day. It doesn’t have to be long. It doesn’t have to be super rigorous. But even on my rest days I need to move. With anxiety and a tendency to feel blah and lethargic, I needed a new habit. It’s like a spark for me. Exercise. I do it and everything else clicks. It sets my energy where I feel like ME. It feels so good to be back. ❤️😄.....#80dayobsession #iffatwerefuel #wahm #workathome #workfromhome #entrepreneur #singlemom #sahm #mompreneur #momlife #momboss #bosslady #fitness #fitfam #motivation #fitnessmotivation #fitspo #workout #healthy #health #instafit #exercise #progress #love #selflove #selflovef #photooftheday #selfcare #beforeandafter

What I'm Currently Doing

Oh man, I love this program!
It's called 80 Day Obsession, and it's like having a personal trainer in my basement. I have gotten so much stronger and I'm never bored. Plus it uses stretchy bands and sliders — two things I've never used before in all of my gym-rat days!
