Why do you have a training card concept?2023-06-20T09:07:43+01:00

In recent years we have experienced more and more requests from our members to be able to train several times a week and choose from a variety of sports and group fitness styles. These wishes are also consistent with what we have seen in the world around us – that more and more people, that are interested in exercise, want to train and try several different sports and forms of exercise instead of just sticking to one. Therefore, we have chosen to offer 2 different types of training cards, one focused on only group fitness styles and one focused on sports+group fitness styles. This enables all members to train in a way that suits them and try many different types of training styles.

Is it possible to try it on during a training session?2023-08-14T15:59:47+01:00

Absolutely! Email us and specify specifically which sport, day and time you want to come and try and we will put you in if there are places available.

Why are Tennis, Swimming, Cross Country Skiing and Roller Skiing not included in SSIF All In?2023-06-20T09:00:04+01:00

We believe that these sports are best suited to be trained in a smaller groups with an experienced instructor who can continuously provide individual and joint feedback. This would not have been possible within SSIF All In where most sessions have 15-30 participants. Therefore, we have chosen to offer some sports as separate small group courses instead of part of the All In concept.

Can I train with you even if I am not a student?2023-08-14T16:28:19+01:00

Yes we are open to everyone regardless of whether you are a student or non-student, as long as you are at least 18 years old.

Does SSIF All In mean I can participate in more trainings each week in my favorite sport?2023-06-20T08:53:57+01:00

Our goal is to offer 2-3 sessions each week in all our training styles included in SSIF All In. This means that, subject to space, you can participate in several training sessions within most of our current sports.
