Intense is a so-called boutique training studio located on Sveavägen near Observatorielunden. Forget everything you know about traditional training sessions here it doesn’t matter if your last meeting of the working day drags on. A new workout session always starts every ten minutes.

The three founders, Jenny, Boris, and Jesper, all have extensive experience in training, both from Sweden, but also abroad. Having experienced the growing trend in the US, all three agreed that something was missing in Stockholm’s fitness scene. They started interviewing people and quickly came to the conclusion that two major problems that people experience concerning exercise were difficulties in attending classes with an instructor and not really knowing how to train in the best way in a gym. The solution to these problems was the boutique gym Intense.

A workout at Intense is not like the traditional gym sessions that other chains offer. Here, the training studio is divided into four stations with three exercises at each station. Every ten minutes a new training session starts for a group at station number one. Each station consists of three exercises where you exercise for 40 seconds and rest for 20 seconds. The exercises have digital instructions and in addition, you always get help from a trainer during your session. When the group has finished station number one, they to station number two, and so on.

The training is high in intensity and consists of a mix of strength and cardio training. A session lasts 40 minutes and is very effective. At Intense, each person is treated as an individual.​ This means, for example, that all exercises can be adapted to your personal level and daily fitness. When you book a session you can also leave instructions for your trainer in advance about how you want to be treated during training. For example, you can choose to be pushed and prodded, or decide that you prefer to be left alone, depending on what you need that day.

A very special feature of the training studio is that it is illuminated with artificial daylight. Artificial daylight gives you half of a day’s needs in just one training session. It is also scientifically proven that daylight is mandatory for good mental health. Spending time in daylight also makes people more alert and focused, which is perfect if you’re performing during a workout. Intense is the only training studio in Sweden to use artificial light technology.

The staff learns all the members’ names and always prioritizes a personal touch. They are also very helpful and skilled at teaching different training techniques. This makes Intense suitable for both beginners and super athletes.
