Copenhagen

The Wolfpack Gym

Sara Jin Smidt

Only open a year and a half but the founders and trainers have been in the game for ages. To me it has a very special place in my heart because it’s one of the few places where I have never worked as a trainer – but just participated like a regular member. They offer a wide range of classes including row, suspension, mobility, yin yoga, bikram and reformer. The place is different because it’s one of the few gyms where the instructors knows your name from the very first class, the classes hosts no more than 20 people. It’s community feeling you don’t find in most regular gyms.

 

Copenhagen

Restaurant Pluto

Sara Jin Smidt

It’s one of the most popular restaurants in Copenhagen and without a doubt my absolute favorite. The food is amazing and even though I come there at least once or twice a month I never get tired of it. The staff is fantastic and you always feel welcome  The menu is a mix of smaller dishes that you can share family style if you want, the drinks are amazing and during the weekend it’s the absolute best place to have dinner before going out and go dancing all night long.

Sporting Health Club Gothersgade

I have been at Sporting Health Club since it opened a couple of years ago. When I was working as a full time personal trainer I used to train my clients there. The gym is not fancy and they actually have a quite limited range of equipment – but if you don’t need anything but dumbbells, kettlebells, rags, a bike, a rower or a treadmill it’s a nice little local gym. To me it’s special because I have worked with the owners for almost 10 years in the fitness industry and I have a lot of friends who trains there. So no matter when I decides to workout there is always someone I know. So even though I pass 2 or 3 gyms when I’m biking from my place to Sporting Health Club it’s still the place I prefer to workout. It’s where I feel at home.

Copenhagen

The Coffee Factory

Right across from Sporting Health Club you’ll find a coffee shop called The Coffee Factory. Because of the location you could suspect it to be a tourist trap. But it’s actually a hang out spot for a lot of the local people. During the summertime they have a great sunspot outside. But I go there for there amazing cappuccino on almond milk. I’m usually a simple drip coffee with skim milk kind of girl – but there cappuccino on almond milk is so delicious it’s like a little dessert.

Copenhagen

Kings Garden

Sara Jin Smidt

Kings Garden is probably one of the most popular places to run and hang out in Copenhagen. Located in the center of Copenhagen and hosts a lot of different outdoor events and festivals. When the weather allows it’s full of people tanning and playing football during the day and having picnics and barbeques during the nighttime. The park is located 2 minutes from the gym where I used to host my bootcamps so I have spend hours running and training with my clients in Kings Garden. But now the park is one of my absolute favorite places to go for an early run or powerwalk during the weekend before it gets crowded when I need to clear my head. It’s a little oasis in the middle of the city.
