Gym with babysitting?

I am looking for a gym near Vevey/Lausanne that has a daycare center.If it has a pilates class that's even better. I have a 4 year old and a 1 year old and obviously can't go to the gym and leave them at home. Any information would be very welcomed!

Re: Gym with babysitting?

Snap, I am looking for the same thing! Someone please respond, at the moment I am dragging my husband and toddler around the parcoursvita in the evenings in order to squeeze in some exercise. Would love to find a gym with a creche.

Re: Gym with babysitting?

Sorry to disappoint, but never have seen one here. Perhaps try some of the more expensive/upscale places in the city centers, but I doubt it.

As an alternative, look for a gym that is near a garderie, or hire a babysitter.

Re: Gym with babysitting?

I have been a member of a Silhouette club in Zurich, which had a "Creche". The chain is from Western Switzerland and a short look showed e that some branches do and some don't have the service... I unfortunatley don't know where all those places are... but there might be one in your area:

Re: Gym with babysitting?

Most places I know (at least in Zurich) have a creche. It might be small but it should be big enough for you to do a workout while they are beeing keept occupied.

Call the one of Migros (Fitness Parc Malley) http://www.fitnessparc.ch/malley/fro...t=1037&lang=12 at least the one in Zurich has a creche. Also Holmes Place has a creche in both Oberrieden and Zurich so you might check out the one in Lausanne or Geneva as well. http://www.holmesplace.ch/en-ch/club...how/LAU/00.jpg

Also google "fitness creche vaud" and you come up with several possibilities like a bebeforum that lists them http://www.bebe.ch/drupal/node/100738 (they mention
http://www.vivatraining.ch/ and http://www.silhouette.ch/default_fra.htm both in Lausanne)

Hope that helps!

Re: Gym with babysitting?

I concur, I am in Silhouette in Vaud and know that the ones in Geneve and Lausanne take care of your kid while you exercise. Now, if only the one that is in our town had it ....

It's all very nice, but look for the hours, basically for moms that don't work. Still, handy if you need it, very much.

Re: Gym with babysitting?

Hey there! I go to Let's Go Fitness in Lausanne and they have a daycare! The gym is brand new and nice and the main guy there (forget his name, kinda bald, wears glasses) speaks English and is nice. And they have Pilates several times a week! It's pretty much across from Fnac, lowest level, I forget what street name that is!
