All service centres provide opportunities to exercise. You can participate in guided exercise groups and go to the free gym on your own.

Some exercise groups are subject to a fee, such as the service centres sports groups organised by the Cultural and Leisure Division's Sports Services and Adult Education Centre.

The service centres also organise exercise groups to support functional capacity that are led by the service centres' own staff. More information on these groups can be found under the heading 'Physical activity to support functional capacity'.

Do you already have a service centre card?

You can get a free service centre card from the service centres' information desk if you are retired or unemployed living in Helsinki. 

When applying for the service centre card, you can prove your retirement with an earnings-related pension card or a pension or benefit decision. If you are currently not working and you are registered as an unemployed job seeker, you can apply for a service centre card on the basis of unemployment. You can print out a certificate of the validity of your job seeking from the TE Service’s E-services (webpage in Finnish)(Link leads to external service)
