Personal and group services

Personal coaching is often the easiest and safest way to intensify your training. Gym instruction enables you to make a safe start to your gym training or to boost your current performance.

Special groups and individual support are meant to give you an easy start if you have not done sports before or are very new to it. You can start by yourself, with a friend or in a group.
