    Functional workouts
    Workouts 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.
