Short term gym pass

Hi

I have my son coming over for a week and he wants to go to the gym whilst he is here.
I am a member of Active Fitness and they don't do a pay as you go scheme. I am in Zollikon if anyone knows of one on the east side?

Thanks

Re: Short term gym pass

Crazy - I just checked out the active fitness website and they really only do annual/biannual memberships.

Unfortunately I don't know of a gym in Zollikon which has a pay as you go scheme. If you are willing to travel into Zürich, then I can recommend Luxor Fitness (Paradeplatz) or Westside Fitness (Hardbrücke). Both nice gyms with good general equipment and which allow individual entry passes. Expect to pay CHF30+ per session though.

Westside also has a monthly pass for ~130.- which may be of interest to you.

Re: Short term gym pass

EVO fitness offers a rolling month to month no commit type contract..

One has just opened near my office in Geneve and i havn't tried it so no recommendation .. Seems to be a concept where there are no staff, you let yourself in and do your own thing.

Seems to be two in Zurich

Edit : It's only around 60.chf per month.. So even just using it for a week would be cheap.

Re: Short term gym pass

I'm currently a member at Evofit. They don't have a massive range of equipment, but am otherwise a fan. There is currently a special referral discount (you can save money on the joining fee if you are referred by a current member).

I'd be happy to give you a referral, especially as I think it gives me a discount as well

Joining fee? Sit back and think about those two words, let them percolate through your brain, you pay a fee to join on top of the cost of the actual Gym?

Re: Short term gym pass

If still relevant, Migros' Fitnessparks sell single/daily tickets as well as passes for 10 entries (though these are expensive). The latter may also be available for other gyms, I've seen that quite often.
