Fitness in Switzerland (HELP)

Ok. So I live in America and I have various fitness certifications and am interested in moving to Switzerland. Just curious if anyone knows if there are Fitness Centers in Switzerland that pay decent money? My current income is about $100,000 a year and I also run camps and coach sports teams. Just wondering again if anyone could fill me in on the Fitness Professional field in Switzerland and if it could support a decent lifestyle there.

Re: Fitness in Switzerland (HELP)

Keep your state-side job, fitness here is highly regulated and for that what you are looking for you would need permits and licenses etc. etc. For most part studios belong to a few (OMG expensive) chains, staff in these studios run mostly to the PFY (pimple faced youth) type.
Of course you get the free-studios with rusty black iron and sweaty carpets that stick like velcro but they won't pay the kind of money you are looking for.

Re: Fitness in Switzerland (HELP)

thank you for the advice...Im not so much looking for the exact amount of pay but I do not like the way my country is going and looking for another place to work. I've adored Switzerland my entire life and I just wanted to know if there is work in this field available and a general price range but thanks for the info. If you have any idea how much trainers get paid please fill me in if you have time (:

Re: Fitness in Switzerland (HELP)

No, however I have visited many times when I lived in the UK for a while, I didn't have citizenship I lived there with my mother at the time, but we made frequent trips to Switzerland during holiday, I do understand that getting a working/residence permit is moderatly-highly difficult however I do have assests that make me unique in my field, i.e.) being able to train professional athletes, being able to train post natal patients, and train MMA professionals...so I do believe attaining some position in the Fitness Industry is possible I just want some generic numbers to work with if possible.
