om os

The personal relationship is the foundation of a good training experience.

Becoming a better version of yourself requires many hours in the gym. It is therefore important that the surroundings are right – What really makes a difference is the feeling of being part of a community where you are seen, heard and understood.

With us, the personal relationship is the cornerstone. We believe that when you build a relationship with members, they not only achieve better results, but also a deeper satisfaction with their entire training experience.

For us, it’s not just about helping you achieve your fitness goals. It’s about knowing you, understanding your challenges and celebrating your triumphs with you. When we take the time to connect on a personal level, it creates a trusting atmosphere where you can feel safe and motivated. This is also reflected in our mantra: “How can I help”.

Om SHC
Sven Ole Thorsen Sporting Health Club

Sporting Health Clubs History

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.
