Sports hall Gym
The Sports hall Gym is a basic gym open to everyone. It is located in the room next to the sports hall main door. Single tickets, serial tickets and season tickets are available for the gym.
Behind the pool facilities there is a fitness studio of the CMS gym club, which is an up-to-date, well-equipped gym designed for those who want to do aerobic exercises, or muscular strength training. You can access the gym by joining the CMS fitness club, or with a SantaSport day passport.
The versatile CrossFit training, which has gained enormous popularity around the world, is an excellent addition to Santa Sport's comprehensive selection. At the CrossFit facility, located in the Sports hall, you’ll find 14 fixed training slots, each with its own free weights, lifting range, high bars, gymnastic rings, climbing ropes, fitness balls, back / abdominal benches, kettlebells and rowing ergometers. The use of the CrossFit hall requires a shift with a reserved instructor, or membership of the CrossFit Hall.
A 252m2 free weights training hall completed the expansion of the facilities. The roomy hall, equipped with mirrors, provides magnificent surroundings for training, both for clubs, teams and individual exercisers. Clubs may book the area on a regular shift basis, or for individual hours. Single tickets are sold outside the arranged shift-times, ask at the SantaSport reception for more information.
The Outdoor gym is located on the area between SantaSport’s main building and Lappi Areena. During the summer, the outdoor gym provides free weights, high bars, benches and other equipment.
You can enter the slope directly from the hotel’s property — a chair lift will bring you back to the hotel after a full day of downhill skiing. The Ounasvaara Ski Center has eight slopes, a Snow Park and a children’s park.Read more
