Exercise and gym facilities

Do not let a vacation get in the way of your well-being. At Hotel Skansen, you have everything you need for a varied workout in beautiful surroundings. Guests have free access to our well-equipped indoor and outdoor gyms. During the weekends you can participate in group activities led by a fitness instructor. Or maybe you would rather book time with a personal trainer.

A daily dose of exercise

Exercise at our gym, both indoors and outside

All hotel guests have free access to our well-equipped gym, which is packed with high-quality cardio and strength equipment. Visitors who are not staying at the hotel can purchase a gym card to use our facilities. The gym is next to the spa within the winter garden.

We also have an outdoor gym on Skansen Beach, the perfect spot for a warm-up, cool-down, or an amazing run along the water. Everyone is welcome to the outdoor gym, and it doesn’t cost anything to use. The more, the merrier, we say.

Or take right and go through Båstad harbor via the seafront, through Malenskogen, along Stensån and across the Riviera Bridge.

Class descriptions

Descriptions of our activity classes

Stomach-Thighs-Buttocks Fitness — 45 min
A activity that’s great for everyone. After a relatively simple warm-up, we exercise the lower body using rubber bands and the body’s own resistance. A super-effective workout for the abdomen, thighs and buttocks.

Yoga — 45–60 min
Here you have the opportunity to try out a fitness regime that emphasizes both mental and physical training. Yoga was created for both bodily and spiritual development by striving to maintain balance between body and mind.

Body Toning — 45 min
We first warm up to music and then press on to strength exercises for the entire body. Ends with cool-down stretching exercises.

Circuit Training — 60 min
Challenging and fun workouts, combining fitness and strength training at various stations.

Core/Relaxation — 45 min
Body-stabilizing exercises taken at a slow and graceful pace, ending with a calm stretch to the sounds of beautiful music.
