Christine Theiss: Dr. Kick, reloaded.
She knows what she wants and follows her own path.
She is brimming with joie de vivre, power, and empathy: following the end of her kickboxing career, “Doctor Merciless” has reinvented herself. In the harsh, snowy landscape of northern Sweden, she displays pure emotion!
Doctor of medicine, 23-time kickboxing world champion, presenter, ring reporter, author, editor, volunteer, wife, and mother: Dr. Christine Theiss wears many hats – all of them with great success.
She proved that once again at the Mercedes-AMG event “Strong Women” in Arjeplog, Sweden, where she impressed equally behind the wheel of a Mercedes-AMG G 63* on snow and ice and as a musher of a team of sled dogs in the wild winter landscape of Swedish Lapland. The latter is no surprise: “I have two dogs and love being in nature with them,” she explains. “I am also active with the rescue dog squad of the Workers’ Samaritan Association. That voluntary activity is absolutely essential for my spiritual balance.”

But the former sportswoman, who achieved her success with an iron will, also feels totally at home behind the wheel: “I like driving a car, even if I do so with ever increasing awareness and less and less often. That means I enjoy feeling the power and luxury in the Mercedes-AMG all the more: the quick reactions of the car to the driver, and experiencing the physical power and yet comfort at the same time.”
With her successes in combat sports, at university, and in the media industry, Theiss has become the epitome of the power woman. She knows what she is talking about when she says: “Strong women follow their own path – regardless of what others say. After a defeat, strong women get back up again, straighten their crown, knuckle down, and try again, without repeating their mistakes!”
She follows her own path: Dr. Christine Theiss knows what she wants and is successful in many fields. Kickboxing is in the past – today she's celebrating life!
Since ending her kickboxing career in 2013, she has worked as a presenter on “The Biggest Loser,” a ring reporter for “ran Kickboxing,” and an editor of Fit for Fun, among other things.
