Entrepreneur, writer, producer and athlete from Iceland with pretty awesome story. Magnus grew up in small town of Borgarnes. His first job was telephone exchange messenger boy. But the point of his future success have to come in his 20's. In 20's, he made a bet with his friend, and the bet was about sport - they said to themselves to succeed in sport they didn't know anything about before. His friend Fjölnir Þorgeirsson became a snooker champion and Magnús aerobics&athlette winner.

In 1994 and 95 the success has come and Magnús won european championship as well as silver medal in the World Championship of aerobics in 1994. .From the carpenter to an athletic superhero who has one dress for occupation and one dress for his alter-ego, Sportakus.

Magnus also travelled more than 50 countries as motivational speaker, so got the privilegium to tell his ideas to thousands of people!
