Sweat and smile, Swedish style

Welcome to Friskis&Svettis, the Swedish fitness revolution with more than 500,000 members across Europe. We run fun-filled ‘Swedercise’ classes in central London since 2005.

Known as jympa in Sweden, the Swedercise workout is based on the idea that exercise should be fun and easy to do. We work out in a circle to create an inclusive group dynamic with a positive energy. The music is catchy and the movements are natural and easy to follow even after one class, which makes it rewarding, fun and addictive from day one!

Friskis&Svettis roughly translates as ‘Healthy&Sweaty’ in Swedish and was established as a non-profit organisation in Stockholm in 1978 to promote an active lifestyle through fun, high-quality, affordable workout classes. Friskis&Svettis London operates on the same basis, inspiring more and more Londoners to get moving!

Come as you are and join the fun! Sweat and smile, Swedish style!
