Swedes love different kind of sports… They enjoy biking, going to gym, playing football, badminton, etc. In Gothenburg, there is even a place where you can play beach volleyball all year round. This is something you should definitely try especially in winter time – the contrast between snow that is outside and sand with palms on the court is pretty amazing.
Well, if you cannot imagine your life without sports club, I will definitely recommend Fysiken. You’ll find quite many international students and expats over there. There is a great range of trainings to attend. My favourite ones are: TRX, BodyCombat, Kraftag, Cycling and BodyBalance.
And here is a story about Swedish society and the gym.
Once, the trainer while giving security instructions, asked us to introduce ourselves. When I said that I was not from Sweden, the trainer decided to make all the comments during training in English only because of me as soon as all other people were good with that. That is what Swedish tolerance is.
