Gyms in Rushlikon and Thalwil?

In getting ready for the upcoming move to Zurich, we are keen to find a respectable gym in the Rushlikon / Thalwil area.

We know that Holmes Place is down at Horgen (and has a great view of the lake, and apparently in summer they even put fitness equipment out on the terrace to use), but the prices are slightly outrageous (around 160CHF / month). As I'd prefer to spend that amount money to park my car and then go on long runs (but I want to have access to weight lifting equipment and cardio equipment / classes), I'd be grateful for any alternative ideas about that area. We are trying to avoid having to go into downtown Zurich just to find a place to burn calories.

Have you checked out the Gesundheitspark Thalwil (http://www.gesundheitspark.ch/content.php)? They have quite a few different things there, including tennis. And the prices vary depending on what type of facilities you would like to us. (price list: http://www.gesundheitspark.ch/files/...preisliste.pdf).

Otherwise, there is also an Activ Fitness right by Horgen station. They are probably one of the cheapest options you can get in Zurich for a good basic gym.

Hi,

Do you know the best place for swimming in winter near Thalwil?
(I mean a heated pool)
