The Denmark's government and more precisely the Employment, Health and Culture ministries has announced an initiative to encourage more people in the Scandinavian country to partake in physical exercise. Their vision of becoming the world's most sporting population aims to help Danes become healthier while giving them better opportunities on the labor market. An active lifestyle could help you to stay healthy and fit and at the same time to enable you to stay on the labor market for longer.

By taking part in sport in and outside of associations, the cohesion in Denmark could be significantly improved because of the bonds that will be formed across social and cultural divides. In general, the levels of participation in sport in Denmark are high, but there are some particulars groups of society that are not part of that community. In addition to that, statistics show that there is a significant increase between 2014 and 2016 in the number of people who regularly fitness trainings in Denmark.
