SIGN UP for your new membership


You’ve heard about gyms for your body, but what about for your mind? The EQ GYM is a  mental training gym that will help expand your mind's consciousness, understand emotions and release stored anger, fear, sadness, and stress. In the process, you will develop empathy, compassion, creativity, gratitude, appreciation, lust, motivation and harmony.

The EQ GYM has centered around 10 emotional muscles; Self-care, Self-awareness, Self-perspective, Self-acceptance, Self-esteem, Self-power, Self-worth, Self-support, Self-love, and Self-confidence.


We practice a formula that will give you the ability to increase and develop your emotional intelligence.

Today it’s common that our internal muscles are weak which may leave you feeling frustrated without being able to pinpoint or solve the problem.

Some people may for example have courage to speak their mind and lead a team, which is a sign of strong self-confidence muscle, but have a hard time with conflicts and staying in uncomfortable emotions, which is a sign of a low self-esteem muscle.

At the EQ GYM we help you understand and build all of your internal muscles critical to your EQ, that will help you live in joy and harmony with ourself and others.



What improves us? At the EQ GYM we believe that everyone’s journey is unique. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits all. With a personal EQ GYM coach, we help you create a tailored program centered around the EQ muscles that are most important for your personal development.

What connects us? Joining a group of strangers may sound intimidating at first, but group settings provides benefits that individual coaching may not. Sharing and discussing personal issues, allows improvement in self-awareness, self-confidence and self-esteem.

The EQ GYM facilitates a space that altered my entire existence. I. MEAN. IT. And of course, COMMUNITY. The collective feeling in the room we create together is magical, otherworldly, and so so so so healing... a feeling that I belong.

Sarah Snavely, Composer / Musician

Getting to experience April Wickström as a person and leader in the Master Classes has been the most amazing thing that happened to me as an individual, mother, partner and professional woman. Everything I learned, I was able to apply in my various roles and, as a result, has grown enormously in them. I wonder if April Wickström knows what huge tsunami waves she started. Wishing everyone to experience this inner journey and personal development.

Aida Chehrehgosha, Artist

For me, The EQ GYM is a mix of concrete research, knowledge building and spiritual deep diving. It's such a stress relief to let go. To get to know myself deeply, to begin to accept myself and, in turn, everything around me. I have found peace and security. Almost got rid of my fear of dying, which was very strong and tangible the first time we met.

Anso Lundin, Artist / Composer

April’s presence combined with her incredible knowledge created magic in the room. She leads at the same time as she is extremely responsive and creates cohesion and security in the group. She understood exactly what the group needed at every opportunity which made me dare to give in and trust the process.

Ellie Elmondt, Entrepreneur

I am so grateful to April, all the other participants and myself for staying, exploring and coming through on the other side.

Andrea Björk, Assortment Manager

I cried a lot. It was so strong and diffuse that I can't even remember what made me cry exactly. Maybe it was feeling safe among people I didn't know well. For me, it is important to convey to skeptics that it's not abstract and fuzzy in any sense, the contact with oneself is what creates security and tranquility.

Nasrin Iranfar, Lawyer

All of a sudden you find yourself to start tapping in the dark with a dozen others and it feels completely safe. The personal development and community is difficult to describe other than simply magical!

Sandra Andreis, Actress

This blew my mind away, literally. Amazed!

CJ Salvador, Dancer & Artist

April has an incredible amount of knowledge and is a fantastic leader. During the course I have gained so many “wow”-insights on how I work and learned to manage my emotions better. It was great fun doing it in a group! Sharing and developing together with others created a strong community for me.

Cissi Efraimsson, Musician & Artist
