Balboa Bar & Gym
Balboa is the place to go for all those who want to improve their strength, stability, and coordination.
Group workoutsFunctional workoutsWorkouts with instructors
Balboa is one of the most popular fitness studios in the city of Zurich. However, it is not a fitness center in the usual sense, for instead of treadmills, rowing machines, and cross trainers, the equipment here is rather minimalistic: with its black floors, horizontal bars, and shelf units full of kettlebells, medicine balls, and boxing gloves, it looks more like a garage.
Body-conscious individuals work out in small groups with instructors. Here the main focus is placed on functional training: strength, balance, and coordination are trained alternately – instead of just specific muscles or a particular area of fitness such as endurance. The aim is to derive the greatest benefit from each workout session in the shortest amount of time possible.
Thanks to the drop-in deals, which can be booked at short notice, the Balboa Gyms are ideal for tourists and guests who want to work out spontaneously on individual days.
