Sporting Health Club carries a proud tradition as Denmark’s oldest gym. More than 50 years ago, the foundation for this institution in Danish fitness was laid by none other than Sven-Ole Thorsen, a true icon in Danish bodybuilding and a familiar face in American films. In its early years, Sporting Health Club served as the undisputed Danish mecca for bodybuilders.
In 2013, a new chapter in SHC’s history began, when the brothers Marc and David Palm together with Martin Brogaard took over the management. The three, with combined over 60 years of industry experience, have not only preserved the club’s original spirit, but also ushered it into a new era with a focus on functional fitness, martial arts and personal training at all levels.
From the legendary premises in Gothersgade, SHC has grown stronger and is now spreading to seven centers in Copenhagen and one in Odense. But no matter how much we expand, our core and dedication to quality training and personal relationship remains unchanged.
