Exercise groups without long-term commitment

If commitment to the whole autumn season does not feel right, one-off sports classes are also available such as water sports groups at the swimming hall. You do not need to register for the free walking groups led by our exercise buddies. You can join any time you like. For example, you can get to know local nature with exercise buddies on the “Let’s go to nature” (in Finnish: “Mennään luontoon”) excursions or, if you are interested in the gym, the buddies can help you there at an affordable price. If you find it difficult to leave your home, you can also join online training, announced on a weekly basis. You can participate sitting on your sofa.
