A classical break for body and soul

Experience music and movement in a unique collaboration between the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and the exercise organisation Friskis&Svettis Stockholm. Find your favourite among six different mini-workouts or do them all in a row – in any case we promise you a cultural training experience.
Exercise, like much else in our everyday lives, has moved into our homes. Konserthuset Stockholm with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic has emerged as one of the music world’s most active streaming contributors and Friskis&Svettis has developed its digital output over the past year. In a joint wellness project, we now present a unique initiative: workout to live music with the orchestra!
You are welcome to use the videos in the way you want. Play one at a time, or all in a row. You can choose to do the moves standing or sitting – or why not come up with your very own choreography? Of course, you can also just enjoy the beautiful music in stillness.
Welcome to six different workouts with classical music. Choose to do one of the sessions for a short break in everyday life. Or run all workouts in one go and as a cultural training experience of just under 20 minutes.
Warm-up with Offenbach
Loosen up your body in a soft flow with the music as a guide. You move to the smoothly swinging Barcarole from The Tales of Hoffmann by Jacques Offenbach.
Gear up in the Hall of the Mountain King
Start gently and then speed up your moves to get your heartbeat going. Edvard Grieg’s famous music from the Peer Gynt Suite begins very softly, and gradually increases to high intensity.
Mobility with Peer Gynt
Work with flexibility and dynamic mobility for both upper and lower body to Morning Mood, sparkling and idyllic music by Edvard Grieg.
Leg strength with Beethoven’s Fifth
You use the power of music to give your legs and balance a real challenge. Your workout is accompanied by probably the most famous opening in classical music: Da-da-da-daa… from Ludwig van Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony.
”Jympa” to Hungarian Dance
Here is a chance to play with the contrasts between power and sensuality! You will also increase your heart rate with some classic “jympa” moves. Keep the tempo all the way to the end with the help of Johannes Brahms’ dancing music.
Relaxation with Satie
With gentle movements, you slow down and at the same time work on the back rotation and stretch the back thighs. A peaceful waltz by Erik Satie helps you relax.
