Migros Fitness Park - Classes in English

Hello,

Do you have any experience with the classes at the Migros Fitness Park? Do they instruct in English as well as German? I am interested in the one in Zug.

Thank you

Nope, you have to adapt! They'll help you as an individual if you tell them you don't understand, but don't imagine that they will change the language of instruction for one person.


Besides, you don't really need language to follow someone's moves.

Re: Migros Fitness Park - Classes in English

I go to the Migros Fitness unit in Heuwaage for a few years now and had all sorts of experiences with classes in English.

The staff is, in general, very mixed and willing to help you in English. For classes, it mostly depends on what the instructor feels like doing. I took some spinning classes where she held the whole lesson both in German and English, without the need for me to ask for extra help. For some TRX ones, however, the instructor kept speaking German the whole time and would approach me in English whenever she noticed something was off or that I looked really stupid. Anyway, you pick it up really quickly.

Next to food - survival mode! - body parts, breathing patterns and movements are where I have the highest German vocabulary!
