Guitarist, singer, songwriter Knipi Stierncreutz got an unusual and unexpected, but very necessary birthday gift from his wife when he was approaching his fifties: a health check-up.
– At first I didn’t really jump for joy, but it was a great gift. The check-up revealed that blood pressure, cholesterol and sugar were all high. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and had to take medication. So the gift was a turning point.
“I realized that it’s not okay to just be”
After the health check, Knipi has increased the amount of daily exercise. He admits to avoiding exercise for years after he stopped playing soccer as a teenager.

According to Knip, gig life has been the enemy of his well-being.
– Gig and tour days lack a clear rhythm and on the road you have to eat more irregularly. The food is not always very healthy. Now I have started jogging or walking at least five kilometers a day. I’ve also cut down on my treat, ice cream.
