Run 10 km on the treadmill, lift weights, or work up a sweat on a spinning session – the gym offers great opportunities to stay fit. And exercise is good for you in many ways – both for your body and mind. It’s fun (we promise!), and once you get into the routine, you don’t want a life without physical activity. The energy and feeling afterward are addictive, and the fact that you reduce your risk of illness and disease makes it even better.

Find the right gym in Stockholm

An important part of getting your exercise done is proximity to the facility – that the distance to your home, work, or school isn’t too far. And since Stockholm is full of excellent gyms, you won’t have trouble finding a conveniently located place. From Södermalm to Östermalm, from the city center to Vasastan – there’s always a gym within easy reach where you can give your body a workout.

But how do you find the right gym for you? Which gyms offer the kind of workout you like? And where can you find personal trainers to encourage and help you reach your fitness goals? With so much to choose from – from small boutique gyms to big chains – it can be challenging to find the gems. To help you find your way through the gym jungle, we’ve put together a guide to Stockholm’s best gyms. Just pack your workout clothes and start – or continue – with a really good habit.







Work out and feel your best at Intense in Vasastan

Well-designed, bright, and exclusive premises. Real weight training and high-intensity cardio to get your energy level to the max. Great community. Competent and supportive instructors. And much more. If that sounds like something for you and you’re looking for an excellent gym in Vasastan, Intense is your answer. It’s a boutique gym in a prime location on Sveavägen and one of the city’s most accessible workout spots. With the vision “Happiest members on earth,” they want to make your workout spontaneous and flexible; it shouldn’t be a must. No wonder their members are delighted.

Intense is run by three experienced fitness professionals who have helped thousands of people – from celebrities to ordinary people – get fit. Having worked in the fitness industry in both the US and Europe, they discovered a gap to fill in Stockholm’s fitness world. The city needed a fitness studio where people could go for the sessions they wanted – when they wanted – and also get help from an instructor to get the best workout at the gym. Intense has solved this by starting a new interval training session with an instructor every 10 minutes, 360 times a week. In other words, it doesn’t matter if your plans fall through and you’re running late – you can always work out when it suits you.

Already in 1911, Stockholm’s General Gymnastics Departments, abbreviated Saga in Swedish, were formed. Of course, a lot has happened since then, but the fresh and pleasant training facilities on Mariatorget, where they have been housed since 1985, still have the same joy and friendly community. The legacy of the gymnastics association means that group classes are a major part of the activities. There are over 20 different types of group classes where you can practice strength, endurance, balance, and coordination. Core movement, dance aerobics, gymnastics, pilates, barbell, step, and Tabata are just a few examples.

In addition to group classes, Saga offers a well-equipped gym, personal training, and online PT. Since they work with a holistic approach to health and wellness, they also have massage, chiropractic, naprapathy, and physiotherapy therapists. In short, everything you need to feel good. And it’s obvious that members appreciate their gym – they often mention the special “Saga feeling.” So if you’re looking for an excellent gym in Södermalm, this one is a hot option.
