Hi all

Am thinking of joining the active fitness gym in dubendorf and wondered if there are any english speakers using it already.
Would be good to find someone to help with motivation

Cheers

Hi, iv just moved to dubondorf, I'm not a member of that gym but would love to meet up with people who like to exercise to maybe do some swimming, cycling or running (I do triathlon) or even to have a coffee :-)

Hi Karenwendyb,

Have you found anywhere near Dubendorf to swim? I'm not triathlon level, but I'm looking for some where to swim and run in the coming cold months!

Thanks,
Alice

Hi Alice,

There is a fab outdoor pool but closed now for winter, but th nearest pool is in wallisellen. I havnt been but if you fancy meeting for a morning run and gab I'm always happy to do that. I am a plodder not a fast runner but I'm happy to be pushed if you are

Karen

Re: gym buddy in dubendorf

I just wanted to post an update / plug here ... even though it's a bit old.

I've since joined Active Fit in Dubendorf, and it's quite nice! I'm a bit too lazy to go all the way to Wallisellen to swim (yeah, I know that's very lazy). But the facilities here have at least kept me active. Not all of the staff speak english, but I was able to make an appointment with a very nice English speaking lady who showed me around and gave a good introductory training session (more of which are available). The membership also includes the childcare area and all classes. The only downside is I suspect my German isn't good enough for a class, but I've also never tried. However, for some strange reason the, TVs are very often set to CNN in English.

Also, as a bonus, my insurance (swica + supplemental) paid for almost the entire membership

Re: gym buddy in dubendorf

Aliceb,

thanks for this update. By chance it happens to be useful for me now, since I'm about to join Activ Fitness in Dübendorf (where I work) and in Zürich (where I live).

I'm looking for a nice gym I can reach during the day (I'd like to train around noon) and in which I could possibly speak some english..

I was doubtful between Activ Fitness and Base Fit. Does anyone have experience on the second one?

tnx
M
