"Is your gym membership gathering dust? It is in this case not alone."
"We swedes put namely billion on a gym membership – which is never used."
"For the high träningsambitioner can be one of the reasons behind the economic träningssvinnet writes SvD."
"Sweden is the country in Europe where the most people hold a gym membership. More than every fifth american buys, which is membership to the gym, according to Deloitte's health - and fitnessmarknadsrapport."
"But we have a gym membership doesn't necessarily mean we use it. In 2017, we paid the swedes a total of 8.3 billion for the gym membership. At the same time wasting we away almost 3 billion on a card we never use, something the SvD reported."
"a great deal of money and anxiety."
"Despite the fact that 2.1 million swedes gymmar, it is thus far from everyone who uses their gym membership frequent. Something that is reflected, inter alia, of Sweden's largest gymorganisation Friskis & Svettis."
"They have has 551 000 registered members but only 65 per cent of the gymkortsinnehavarna train active, then, at least once every two weeks, reports SvD."
"Ingela Gabrielsson, sparekonom at Nordea, believes that a lot of money getting wasted unnecessarily by the investment in unused gym membership."
"– There is a lot of money. In addition, it comes with anxiety too. Träningsångesten späs on when you have paid good money for a card, " says Gabrielsson to SvD."
"Sparekonomen think that after the holidays, there is a false träningssug that can be a factor to many inactive membership options."
"– You see that the gyms have the highest occupancy in January after the christmas break and the new year, and around the start of school in late August. Then you can go in with high ambition and thinking that this time it's going to be a difference. But then might not really be who you might have thought, " says Gunilla Gabrielsson for the magazine."
"”I Have set the bar too high?”"
"Instead of laying out a larger sum of money on the gym membership and ponds suggests Gabrielsson, free training."
"Long walks, ride a bike to work, or go to a utegym are all possible solutions according to the sparekonomen. And if you still want to have a gym membership is Gunilla oxenstierna's proposal to testträna a couple of times, before you turn to buy a full season ticket."
"– You don't need to tie up on long-term contracts the first thing you do. Think, for a time extra and be realistic: Have I set the bar too high now? says Gabrielsson to SvD."
