Our values

Friskis&Svettis offers engaging and easily accessible exercise of a high quality for everybody. This is what our basic idea and the activities we have on offer are based upon. Friskis&Svettis is a sports association with an unusual goal within the sporting world; there is no finishing tape to break, no net to place the ball in and no competitors to beat. Our goal is a smile. The smile that Friskis&Svettis pursues is to be felt more than seen. Yet, it is powerful enough to win over all the negative aspects of training: being short of breath, the aching muscles and the paralysing, dreaded lactic acid etc.

Above all, that special smile shall win over the “I should” dilemma.Training driven by a bad conscience is not usually much fun, regular or long-lasting. Therefore, the sports association Friskis&Svettis, builds all of its activities on the idea that training should be fueled by desire.


  • Friskis&Svettis is not about getting everything right, but about having fun.
  • It is not about changing your whole lifestyle, but about adding something positive to the one you already have.
  • It is not primarily about getting fit, but about having the energy to get more out of life.
