Looking for Gym in downtown Geneva

Hi All,

I will be in Geneva (near Cornavin station) for two weeks in March. I'm training for a marathon and need access to a gym (as it's too cold to run outside). Any recommendations of gyms within Cornavin station?

Thanks!

Re: Looking for Gym in downtown Geneva

The mornings on the lake have been beautiful the last few weeks and not so cold - although Thurs was a bit chilly at -5 deg C. Running outside is not so bad - as long as you dress correctly, stay well hydrated and are not coming from the 45 deg heatwave in Aus.
I run some outdoor circuits 2 mornings a week and a couple of my clients are preparing for the London Marathon. They are running most lunchtimes and have found the weather ok (just not when there is the Bise wind) and there is also a Glocals (www.glocals.com) running group 2 evenings a week and on Sat. A few of your long endurance sessions can also be substituted with cross country skiing or snowshoeing up in the mountains - that's if the snow ever comes back.

There is a Silhouette gym in the area, but it might not be so cheap for 2 weeks - but take a look at the website.

Good luck with the training.
