The Sport Temples
“It’s very spacious. All kind of sports. Only thing missing is a pool, if you care about swimming.”
- Luciano J., Fitnessplus member
Within the whole Zuricher Thurgauerstrasse there are three fitness studios and one yoga centre. Their business is profitable, with people coming and going before, during or after work. Taking a workout-lunch break is also a rather trendy habit. But the image of a big hall with individual exercise machines is only a small part of what the fitness world really is: most of the centers also organize a variety of fitness classes, such as Bauch Beine Po, dance, fatattack, pilates, yoga, bodypump and many others. In addition, the newest fitness clubs also offer live DJ sets during workout hours or a café that serves smoothies and fitness food at lower prices for members. Memberships cost between 720 and 1080 Swiss francs a year and include childcare and parking.
