Welcome to Aktivitetshuset online

As you know Aktivitetshuset has been temporarily closed for visitors since 16 March. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to take a break from working out with us!

Here you find inspiration on how to keep up the pace during the summer. During week 28-31 we take a summer break from our online exercises. But why don´t give our recorded workout sessions on a try!

Since we have been closed down, we have geared up the already planned renovation of Aktivitetshuset. We are keeping our selves super busy and the renovation is planned to be finished in December 2020.

As a part of temporarily closing down Aktivitetshuset in March due to Covid-19, this also meant that we closed down Multihallen, the gym and the squash hall as an action of precaution. We are continuously monitoring the situation and follow the recommendations made by the Swedish authorities and World Health Organization. For any changes we will keep you updated on here on our website.
