Welcome to

Helsinki

Restaurant Lämpö

  • Go Out

Kaisa Sali

The location of Lämpö is very interesting as it is situated at Suvilahti and surrounded by the old power production buildings. The area is very urban as it is decorated by many cool graffiti. If you like to mix some parkour kind of activities with your run, Suvilahti is the location you will love.
Lämpö is known for its’ great daily lunch buffet and also the weekend brunch is one of the best in Helsinki.

Allas sea pool

  • Work Out

Kaisa Sali

Allas sea pool is right in the heart of Helsinki and is a perfect location for  a recovery swim after a run around the citys beautiful coast. You can enjoy the pools year around – at winter it is pretty magical to swim in the heated pool when snowflakes are falling and during summer the pools and the deck areas are perfect spots for sunbathing.
There are also a cold sea water pool and a traditional Finnish sauna in the area so you can boost your relaxation with some hot-cold therapy. 

After the swim you can enjoy for example a glass of wine and a tasty salad at the Pools' small restaurant.

Cafe Johan & Nyström

  • Hang Out

Kaisa Sali

Cafe Johan & Nyström is in my opinion the most cozy cafeteria in Helsinki. The sofas at the second floor are a perfect spot for having a long chat with friends or chilling alone reading a good book. The coffee is first class. Johan & Nyström slowly roast all the coffees by themselves and the organic beans are bought straight from the owners. There is also a good selection of teas and bakery products.

Helsinki Central park

  • Work Out

Kaisa Sali

Helsinki Central park stretches 10 km from Töölönlahti Bay in the south to the boarder of Helsinki and Vantaa in the north. The park is a real runners heaven and the legend tells that during the IAAF Athletics World Championships in 2005 the kenyan marathon runners did overtrain as they enjoyed the running in Central Park so much.

The park is a beautiful forest filled with hundreds of kilometers of zigzagging sand paths, just perfect for running

Herttoniemi stairs

  • Work Out

Kaisa Sali 

Herttoniemis’ old ski jump tower stairs is a perfect spot for some high intensity running and cross training. There are 182 steps to go so you can really feel the running up in your legs and lungs. The view from the up level is beautiful as you can see far to the sea coast. If you like to do many loops you can run back down following the stairs or a curly running path. The stairs are also connected to the huge sand path network of Helsinki Central park. 

I like to do 5-10 loops on the stairs and finish up with a few km of fast running on the flat sand roads.

Kaivopuisto

  • Hang Out

Laura Lepisto

Kaivopuisto by the sea is one of the most popular places in Helsinki to enjoy a warm summer day or evening. Grab your picnic basket, music player and group of friends and enjoy the sea view and the relaxed atmosphere. If you run out of refreshments, there are plenty of nice cafes and terraces such as Mattolaituri, Ursula or Karuselli for drinks or food. If you feel like partying, take a short walk to Hernesaari where there are artists on stage during the whole summer. Kaivopuisto is also the place to go on May 1st when we celebrate Vappu! The sight is a bit different…

Cafe Regatta

  • Hang Out

Laura Lepisto

On a summer evening, this cafe is the most Finnish one to go. The picturesque red cottage cafe reminds us Finns of our traditional summer cottages that most of us have somewhere in Finland by a lake (since we have thousands of them!). Regatta stands by the sea, so you may enjoy your coffee and cinnamon bun outside while watching the sunset. They also have a bonfire where you can grill sausages and keep yourself warm on a chilly evening. So cozy!

Runar

  • Go Out

Johannes Hattunen

Whenever I feel like spending time and relaxing with good friends, I head to Runar. Located in the heart of Helsinki it’s easy to pop-in for after work drink. Friendly, yet professional bartenders craft cocktails according to your taste or you can choose one from the menu. Beware, the cocktails are so good that it’s likely that you end up having more than one.

Lifes also about living in a moment and enjoying great cocktails.

Good Life Coffee

  • Hang Out

Johannes Hattunen

Cozy atmosphere, well-educated baristas, and excellent coffee.  They roast their coffee, and it’s so good that I stopped using milk. Their motto “Avoid Bad Life” fits well with my agenda in life. Good Life Coffee is located in the lively Kallio area of Helsinki, and you can find many bars, restaurants, and nightclubs nearby.

Eiranranta – Hernesaari area

  • Work Out

Johannes Hattunen

Just a few minutes run from my home and my absolute favorite outdoors training spot in the city. The park is perfect for fast sprints and closer to Hernesaari there is an area designed for a street workout enthusiast. If you are not in a mood for sports, there’s plenty of options other for activities. Get a quick boat trip to a pizzeria Skiffer located on an island nearby, enjoy delicious cinnamon roll at Caruselli or refresh your body and mind with some ice swimming and traditional Finnish sauna in restaurant Löyly!

Training For Warriors Helsinki

  • Work Out

Johannes Hattunen

I love training hard and challenging my limits. Every time I feel the need to lift heavy stuff, and I find myself knocking on TFW doors.  Since opening it’s doors 2014 it has quickly become one of the hottest gyms in the world. Heck, in 2017 it won the award for the best TFW gym in the world. Every single class is well programmed and coached by a high level professional. Expect some severe sweating, big smiles and lot of high fives!

Be a warrior, not a worrier!

Eläintarhan Kenttä

  • Work Out

Johannes Hattunen

Run, sprint and jump around! Eläintarha is the perfect spot for working out during summer time in Helsinki. Red tartan track and a lot of track&field equipment you can borrow for free. I love “Eltsu” because it challenges me to vary my regular workout routines. You can spot plenty of professional athletes here, which helps me to push even harder.
