i might be a good victim/candidate but am seriously unfit and have put on 10kg in the last 2 years......since moving here. I need a a good swift kick us the ass. I live next to the border, but also work only 4 days per week and free at weekends........oh and i am really old too, at least 45. pm me if u are up for a challenge..cheers
Feel free to come along. It might be a bit hard in the beginning, but I will tone the challenge down a bit for you if needed.
If you are as seriously unfit as you suggest, It might also be good for you to check with your doctor if heavy heart rate activities are allowed as you are then in the risk zone for cardiovascular diseases, and it might be better to start out with light intensity training.

Re: Looking to get back in shape?

Bodyweight exercises in a park is something that would be awesome

Anyone know any parks in Basel with Bars that one can do muscle ups/chin ups on?

I live in Basel but I'm already going to the crossfit here

I don't know of any places that have real equipment.

What I do in Kannenfeldpark, is use the playgrounds.

The one I most often use has both rings (a monkey walk thing), and a suspended mesh net. The mesh net, allows for almost any type of "ups", no matter what grip of the day you want. the rings, should allow for muscle ups, but I haven't tried that there yet.

Good luck!

Re: Looking to get back in shape?

Where is the gym located exactly?
And what are the costs?

I would like to do some workout also, but I live in Lörrach (Germany) at the moment.
I have some experience with fitness while I had a (small) back issue this year and I had to train my back.
My physical condition would not match the one from a 13-yr. experienced fitness instructor so I would have to work on that
My main focus the last few years were career and drinking beer, so not much of a sport type until now

Despina,

There are a lot of sporting activities in Lausanne, but EF is not the place to look. Please take a look at http://www.glocals.com/lausanne/
and you will see a whole range of activities to do in this wonderful place, and a chance to meet people. We have a running group that meets twice a week and there are other sporting/social activities.
I am sure you will find something that suits you.

(Sorry to hijack the thread - its great to see the group going well)

Re: Looking to get back in shape?

It's a park, not a gym. It's free to attend.

I think most people would be able to keep up.
This morning was:

2km slow jog
(around 15 min)

Timetrial:
5 rounds of
-5 burpees
-5 pullup
-10 pushup
-20 airsquat
(around 12-15 mins)

2 rounds of
-20 sit-ups
-20 leg-raises
(around 3-5 min)

1 round of
-1 min plank
-1 min sideplank
-1 min sideplank
(3 min)

so around 35-40 minutes of training and 10 minutes breaktime

-CLV

Re: Looking to get back in shape?

Sorry but I completely knackered my front thigh playing netball last night - I think I've pulled a muscle as I am having real difficulties even walking around today It was a sudden burst of acceleration that did it. I'm using ice for 20 minutes each hour and trying to not use my legs - which is quite difficult as you can imagine.

Wow sounds like you went all out!

Hope you recover fast.
