About Us

Thorax Trainer

ThoraxTrainer Ltd. was founded in 2008 by two passionated cross-country skiers, both with former elite sports careers within triathlon and cross-country skiing. As a medical doctor and engineer, they saw a possibility to bring the Worlds toughest sport – Nordic skiing – indoor by building an indoor fitness trainer that imitated cross-country skiing.

The Nordic skiing tradition is deeply rooted in Scandinavia, both for recreation and sport. And today, Scandinavians love affair with Nordic skiing persists. Especially in the long dark and cold winters, Scandinavians have a strong urge to seek nature and light. In the un-polluted landscapes of Scandinavia, nature becomes a friend that helps people reduce stress, enjoy the present and become more energetic for the future. It is what is embodied in the Nordic concept of “friluftsliv”, simply meaning spending time outside and enjoying nature.

Strong Scandinavian
Roots

Today, Thorax Trainer is owned and manufactured by Nordic Strong, a Danish family-owned business.

For many Scandinavians, including our own family, outdoor activities such as cross-country skiing, sailing or hiking always been an integral part of our lifestyle.

We Embrace
The Outdoors

Whether we are making our way on cross country skies through snow-covered landscapes in the Norwegian mountains, hiking in the Swedish hillsides or winter swimming in Copenhagen, we fully embrace the outdoors and what it has to offer us. We find comfort in it, just as well as we do indoors when we snuggle up at night in front of the fireplace with a good movie or a favorite book and preferably a thunderstorm just outside our windows – the Nordic way of “hygge”.

Being Outdoor,
Less stress

The health benefits of committing to the active outdoors are immense. Studies show that physical activity outdoors not only make us happier and less stressed, but also that it will lower a person’s blood pressure and heart rate. Other than that, being active in nature can simply be liberating, as it gives you an opportunity to disconnect from an otherwise often, hectic, technological World.

The Nordic Way

Our love for Nordic skiing has always been rooted in a combination of our commitment to being physically active and our deep appreciation of being in nature with friends and family. With Nordic Strong, we aim to inspire healthy Nordic lifestyle. This means doing activities that will make you stronger than ever, both in your body and in your mind. We look forward to bringing you on the Nordic Strong journey.
