We stay fit together!
ACIF offers employees of all the Atlas Copco and Epiroc companies in Sickla a wide variety of organized activities and discounted gym memberships for an annual membership fee of only 300 SEK. Stay fit, get to know more colleagues and make new friends by training together. We have activities to suit everyone:
We also regularly host guest speakers on topics related to sports, fitness and the physical and psychological health benefits of training.
Sign-up to become a member is easy - use this link.
As of 2020, there will be a change to ACIF rules regarding sponsored activities. To qualify to take part in sponsored activities, where ACIF covers part of the cost, a member must be employed by a sponsoring company, e.g. Atlas Copco or Epiroc. Retirees from both companies also qualify to join ACIF activities at subsidized rates. Other members are very welcome to participate, but must pay the full fee for the event.
Details per activity:
• Golf, badminton and tennis – must be booked by an employed ACIF member. An employed member can be the host for non-members. The tennis sessions with a coach are for employed members.
• Actic, kayaking, climbing and yoga – reduced or free for employed members. Other members may participate and pay the ordinary fee.
• Arranged trips – reduced fees and prioritization of employed members. Others can join when places are available and pay the ordinary fee.
• Group activities like indoor soccer, floorball and the boot camp – open to and free for all members.
• Special activities to increase interest and membership in ACIF – prioritization for places will be given to employees.

Outdoor circuit training
Join us for StrongMovement circuit training with Anna from Fysrörelsen on Thursdays from 16.15 to 17.00. We train outside, keep a distance from each other and don't share training equipment. We meet Anna beside the outdoor gym at Hammarbybacken.
StrongMovement is a circuit training with a focus on mobility and strength for the whole body. It is meant for those who want a bit of a challenge and an increased heart rate. You need to bring your own mat if you think the grass isn’t soft enough.
Online yoga on Thursdays
Ebba Forsberg from Nacka Yoga Studio leads 30 minutes of Hatha Yoga on Thursdays 12.05-12.35, every Thursday until Dec. 17.
Hatha Yoga is a slow and dynamic practice allowing the body to open, stretch and strengthen as the mind quiets down.
This is an all-round grounding sequence targeting the whole body with some different regions in focus from week to week.
For those of you who have questions regarding yoga or meditation Ebba will be available online 15 minutes before the class starts.
Contact Karin.Reichard@atlascopco.com for the online session login details.
Prepare where you will do your yoga and where you’ll place your screen in good time before the class starts.
Please be ready on your mat and in comfortable clothes that allow movement at least a couple of minutes before the class starts.
It is always good to have a blanket or extra cushion to sit on and for the finishing resting pose Savasana.
We strongly recommend you do your yoga barefoot.
Consider connecting your device to your TV for a better picture.
Make sure your telephone is off or on silent mode for the least amount of disturbance.
Avoid eating a big meal within 2 hours of doing yoga and avoid drinking anything 30 minutes before doing yoga.
