Hello from Sweden

Postby Kaye » Tue Feb 14, 2012 6:53 pm

Hi All
I'm a long time vegetarian recently turned vegan who is into olympic weightlifting, powerlifting and kettlebelling. I have just moved from the UK to Uppsala in Sweden and would be very grateful for any tips regarding good places to train and eat!
Thanks, Kaye

Hello & Welcome Kaye! :D

I really want to visit Uppsala and of course Stockholm and - ok, pretty much all/any of Sweden! Are you going to university there?

Welcome! I grew up in Uppsala. Good places to eat: Golden China www.kinakrogen.se , Fröja Sal http://www.frojassal.se and Mesob http://www.messob.se IMO the best places to eat in Uppsala. I recommend training at cross fit Uppsala if your'e interested in that kind of training. A great place.

Thanks all!
I'll check these places out. Tried to have lunch at 'Fröjas sal' last weekend but unfortunately they're only open Mon-Fri.
In response to loveliberate's question I'm not at uni here. Moved for work and to improve my quality of life and so far so good.
Been to UTK gym: http://www.utkgym.se and they have everything you need for power/olympic lifting (or bodybuilding if you like) and the staff were nice and friendly.

Welcome!
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

UTK is great. I used to live in Tunabackar so it was super close. Bad opening hours but cheap and a great place to lift weights.
