Leading Nordic gym provider

Actic (formerly Nautilus Gym) is a leading low to mid market Nordic health and fitness club chain with over 140 clubs and more than 200,000 members in six countries.

The company’s vision is to create a healthier society by inspiring people to better health and increased well-being. Actic’s geographical focus markets are Sweden, Norway and Germany, but the company is also present in Finland, Iceland and Austria. Headquarters are based in Stockholm, Sweden.

Actic was acquired by the IK 2007 Fund in August 2012, and later listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange in April 2017, with shares sold to nine high quality investors, including Althanase Industrial Partner.
