Re: Migros Fitness Park Member?

The park itself is nice, modern machines and a lot of space.
However, they're not closed and they decided that instead of freezing the bills they ask people to pay and they say they will extend the time period at the end of the contract period. That's completely crap, we don't even know when they will open again and we're paying them and we don't get access to the gym. They want our money now for services we might get months in the future. They're bullies, I tried tonspeak to them but they told me it's not their fault that the government closed them down. And I said: 'it's not my fault either, so why should I pay?'. They keep referring to the contract but in the contract they say we pay for access to the gyms, and we don't have that. Anyway, I stopped paying the bills because it's unfair. If anyone if looking to buy a 5 months membership let me know.

Re: Migros Fitness Park Member?

I suspect that all these aggressively advertising gyms, once they get hold of your membership they won’t let it go that easily. There is speculative hope that they would break even later, once pandemic subsided. Suppliers of exercising equipment make much more money nowadays than empty public sports facilities.

I avoid gyms completely, create my own workouts at home. In this weather you can go to parkour areas, jogging, cycling, walking, running and other outdoor activities with ball on fresh air e.g. I do regular sessions of tennis on the wall. Walking junior in pram is one of them.

That is not a fight you are likely to win and in Switzerland to just 'stop paying bills' and stick your head in the sand is a recipe for disaster. They will send you bills, then reminders, and in the end you will likely end up paying more in additional charges unless you really put some energy into challenging them.

Your best bet is to just get them to extend your abo by the amount of time you cannot access the gym.
