Gym, Fitness & German courses

Hi all,

I am new to this site and will be moving to Switzerland, Zürich, in a couple of weeks for the first time with my partner.
Just wondered if anyone knows of a good gym/fitness centre in the Zürich area, ideally with a pool? Also, I would like to learn German, does anyone know of any evening courses for beginners where I can do this?

Thanks

I can't recommend any gyms, but I can recommend that you read any potential contract carefully before you sign. If you don't understand the language, have someone translate for you.

Many gyms have strict cancellation policies with fees, and/or automatic renewal clauses.

Re: Gym, Fitness & German courses

This is not a gym, but the info on the - many! - public swimming pools, indoor and outdoor, in (and owned and run by) the City of Zurich, a few of which (outdoor) are free. One can buy a year-long pass, too.

Re: Gym, Fitness & German courses

I can recommend Aktivfitness, https://www.activfitness.ch/
I liked that I coud use different locations. Take a look at the prices, it will give you an idea of what things cost in Zurich.


For German courses, I can recommend both Alpha and halloDeutsch schule
https://www.alphasprachwelt.ch/
https://hallodeutschschule.ch/


Alpha is more expensive, Hallo more of a budget option. Both offer intensive classes, over 5 days a week, and these are a great way to get out and meet people!


I wouldn't recommend Migros for lower levels, but they are an institution here so you should know about them: https://www.klubschule.ch/
