Long gone are the days of New Year’s Resolutions. Certainly, it’s a good time to check-in with oneself and recommit to your personal goals…but our Zuri Girl girlfriends know that when it comes to fitness and health, it is not a resolution, it is a lifestyle!
We have been on the lookout for some of Zurich’s cool fitness trends to help keep your body looking hot!
NEW Holmes Place Spin Studio – Crowne Plaza
Spin your way over to the new Holmes Place Health Club – Zurich CPL. For the best indoor cycling studio, look no further than this proper spin class, reminiscent of the best studios available from New York to Los Angeles. Get your heart racing and your booty firm while spinning to popular party tunes in this cool atmosphere. Zuri Girl sampled the class and loved everything from the atmosphere to the upbeat and motivating instructor…and they have one of Zurich’s most relaxing indoor swimming pools upstairs!

NUYU Health Center (CLOSED)
Ladies, there’s a fabulous 360º health and beauty center in town and it’s called, so appropriately, NUYU. That’s right, the name says it all: New You! Offering Personal Training, Nutrition Consultation, Chinese Medicine, Yoga, Massage, Nail Design, Permanent Makeup…and our favorite, Hair Design by Waleska! The team is really special, all with experience in high-end establishments, but charging relatively affordable prices in this location just steps away from the Zurich Opera House. Go on, meet the team and reveal the New You!

Ballet For Everyone
Never too late to slip on ballet shoes and try your first pirouette or tone the body using modern bar-method style exercises. Ballet For Everyone is led by former ballerina, Veronique, who teaches with discipline necessary to challenge muscles during her 60-minute classes incorporating pilates, barre, floor routines and stretching. She leads with a smile, patience and flawless demonstrations. Class size is always less than 12 and no prior ballet training is required.

Mom in Balance
Good Lookin’ Mama…Let’s face it, we all feel better after a workout and this feeling is amplified when you are a new (or soon to be) mommy! Now in Zürich, the Mom in Balance fitness program was developed in conjunction with gynecologists and pelvic floor experts to help ensure special needs are catered to, while providing a good workout to keep changing bodies fit and healthy. Choose from the Pregnancy, Back in Shape, and Mom in Shape workouts and receive a fabulous book and workout band when you sign up!

Impulse Performance Personal Training
“Make my body look like yours!” Is generally the way we feel when meeting an inspirational personal trainer. Zuri Girl recently met and worked out with Lucy Clarvis, originally from North Lincolnshire, UK. Your workout is customized according to your personal goals…but what we love about Lucy is that she prefers you use your own body weight as resistance, and she sprinkles in workout tips from the Victoria’s Secret Angels, ballerinas and dancers for a long and lean beautiful figure.

med&motion – Kältekammer
Quite possibly one of the coolest methods to improve the appearance of cellulite…literally! The KälteKammer is a cold chamber with a temperature of (-80°) and has been used by athletes to help recover from sports injuries, improve circulation and performance. Meanwhile, as a byproduct of the science, beauty and wellness results emerged…the increased blood circulation from the cold temperature makes skin more beautifully smooth and cellulite virtually disappear. A sample treatment is only CHF 25 and just a few minutes in the chamber is enough to see and feel invigorating results!
