Anyone interested in..........bootcamps and PT in zurich

Hi all

I am a personal trainer originally from the UK but have lived in Australia for the past 3 years and in both of these countries there is a massive boom in morning and evening bootcamps as a way to get fit!

Having run many bootcamps over my career I am thinking of starting up and marketing one in the Zurich area (either indoor or outdoor pending numbers/interest).

Before I start marketing and pricing my bootcamps I wanted to establish whether there was any interest or market for this form of training here in Zurich?

Be good to hear any thoughts?!?

Zara

Hi Zara

Bootcamp! Yay!!! The idea of doing one has appealed for a long time and as this is my year to get totally fit again, then I'm in! Either indoor or outdoor is fine with me .

Good luck and looking forward to hearing further.

Cheers.

Your best bet is to tie into the Vita-parcours that are throughout Switzerland - google for their locations. I keep meaning to do it properly - but never get round to it

Does it involve a drill sergeant shouting in your face, doing a 10 mile run then 100 press-ups and having to clean the mess hall with your toothbrush, later followed by other recruits hitting you with bars of soap wrapped in pillow cases while you sleep?

I think it is not impossible to arrange this for you...of course for extra cost...

Getting serious: I would be interested, as doing bootcamp-like workout alone is no(t that much) fun, but I am located in Lausanne...

We have them in Lausanne and Geneva/Versoix aswell (with our without the 10 mile run and 100 press-ups - not so much yelling as I skipped past the SGT Rank).
I also ran one the other night as part of the Glocals running group - I can send you some info if you want.

There are also a few in the Zurich region already, although they tend to be called outdoor circuits as the term Bootcamp doesn't go down so well in Switzerland.

Re: Anyone interested in..........bootcamps and PT in zurich

I give Bootcamp classes every Monday morning in Küsnacht at 9.00am, Wednesday morning 9.00am and Tuesday evenings at 19.00. Monday and Tuesdays are held outdoors rain or shine.

I also run a Momi-b-fit class (outdoors with baby in the pram) at Zürichhorn Fridays at 9.00.A new session is starting this week (Friday 21st )

If anyone is interested, contact me...
