Why are you repeating your concept?2019-07-04T08: 51: 05 + 00: 00

Being modern and in line with time are important factors for the success we have seen in SSIF in recent years, as the number of members has multiplied. At the same time, we have experienced an increasing number of requests from our members to have the opportunity to train several different types of training several times a week in SSIF. These wishes are also in line with what we have seen in our world - that more and more training enthusiasts want to train and test on several different sports and training forms instead of just sticking to one. That is why it was given to us to create SSIF All-In, which enables all members to practice varied and try out many new forms of training.

Is there an opportunity to try on a training session?2019-09-04T13: 56: 59 + 00: 00

Response: In exceptional cases, we have the opportunity to offer trial-on activities at the start of the semester. In that case, email us after the semester has started and specifically state what sport, day and time you want to come and test and we will post you if there are places available.

Why doesn't tennis and swimming include SSIF All-In?2019-07-04T08: 51: 57 + 00: 00

We believe that tennis and swimming are best suited for training in a small group (4 people in tennis and 8 people in swimming) with an experienced instructor / PT who can continuously provide individual and joint feedback. This would not have been possible within SSIF All-In where most passes have 15-40 participants. Therefore, we have chosen to have tennis and swimming within our Small Group Training concept with separate notification.

Can you train with you even if you are not a student?2019-05-16T21: 43: 35 + 00: 00

Response: Yes we are open to everyone regardless of whether you are a student or a non-student, as long as you are at least 16 years old.

Does SSIF All-In mean that there will be more training every week within my favorite sport?2019-07-04T08: 57: 40 + 00: 00

Our goal is 2-3 passports every week in all of our training forms that fit within the SSIF All-In. This means that we added extra training sessions in most of our current sports.
