I've been a member of silhouette for several years, but had enough of it. Lack of maintenance, dirty changing rooms, overcrowded gyms and to top it off: they "reserve" large areas of their clubs now to "personal trainer" space.

Good morning to you.  I think it depends on where you live. If you are working and living on the Right Bank of the river then I would highly suggest the TopForm gym at the Hotel Starling.  They give special rates to some organizations and companies.  It is super clean and quite uncrowded most of the time.  Staff wonderful.  Hands down for me, the best gym in Geneva - if it is convenient to you of course.  Good luck to you.

I'm in the Evo Gym in rue de Lausanne which is new and very fresh looking (opened less than 1 year ago I think). It's one of those that doesn't really have staff, you just have a badge to get you in an automatic door. So it doesn't have classes if that's what you're after, but in return it is 69 chf per month which seems like it is cheaper than most.


My only gripe with it is that I wish there were more weightlifting equipment (eg rack for squats), as they focus on "functional training" and don't really have a lot of things like that (a couple of barbells and various cable type things - all nice brands and new).


When I was looking for a gym I also checked out Non Stop, which was a lot more crowded and not nearly as nice looking, but I guess they may have had some more equipment.


If you stop by there I believe you can get an entry code by sms to check it out for free.

I go to Non Stop Gym (Servette), and I am really satisfied. It's a good price, the place is always very clean. Their opening hours are great (24/7). I train 06.00 and so far they are the only one's that are open at that time.


The only drawback I can think if is that the free weights room should be larger and have more equipment, it's a bit too small for the amount of people using it. Especially barbells and barbell racks are too few. I do my squats without a Smith machine and there is only one barbell with rack that I can do it with =/

Hi, I don't know if you have found a place yet but I want to transfer my gym membership on to someone who is looking to join Let's Go Fitness gym club. It runs until March 2017 (I forgot to cancel it).  This means you don't need to pay the admin fee as i have already paid this. I used to go the the Geneva club and it is really great (super clean, great classes). Let me know if you are interested!

Dear Marlene,


Have you already found someone who wants to take over your membership? If not, I am interested.

Hey you can have a look at the American Fitness Gym. It's close to the supermarket Aligros, near La Jonction.


They equipment is just amazing, speccially if you re more a bodybuilding type of personne. They have a lots of cardio equipment too. The staff is friendly and the price is really good. Beetween 700 and 800 CHF a year.


Have a look at their Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/American-fitness-112094622186839/?fref=ts). They are having a special discount during the weekend of the 2 and 3 April + free acces to the gym during this weekend.


Hope this post helped.

Honestly, I do not know. The best is to call or PM them via FB.


Otherwise, if you look for a intensive cardio and fitness, boxing is a good solution, e.g. Geneva Boxing

Hi,


 


I think that a 3 month membership usually 399 CHF, but they have a kind of Easter Discount and it costs only 299 CHF... 


 


But you can call them or go there, they are realy friendly so do not hesitate :)

Has anyone had any problems with the contract you sign with Holmes Place? I heard in the past that it is difficult to cancel your membership but I'm not sure if that is still the case.
