From energy to environment, there is something magical about a group workout. Some days the average gym workout simply doesn’t inspire. So we’ve gathered the best places to fulfil your bootcamp and fitness cravings. You will find nothing but passion, enthusiasm and energy at our five Zug fitness favourites!
Gemma Needham, Journey Fitness
RunCamp & Personal Training
Gemma is ready to help you get fit. Join one of her most popular classes, “Bootcamp with a
Twist”, known as RunCamp, for a killer workout where you get more than just your average run. This class has you running as a group for 5-7 km taking stops to do mini-sets of focused
strength or cardio.
If you love this running-inspired bootcamp style, she also offers the Intervals Training Running
Class. For a more traditional bootcamp option, Gemma has online HIIT classes and Kids
Fitness Camps. She also offers a “Health & Fitness Reboot” to help get you back on track.
As a personal trainer, Gemma believes in making fitness fun and accessible to all levels. She
wants to show people that they can reach beyond what they think they are capable of. After one of Gemma’s classes, she will have you feeling strong and empowered and looking forward to the next session!
Newcomers are welcome here as Gemma personally speaks with each person before their first class about injuries or further concerns. She introduces them to everyone in the group, making it easy to feel welcome in the new environment. To further build a sense of community, Gemma maintains a WhatsApp group for the in-person classes and a Facebook Group for the online classes and Reboot Challenges to stay motivated and connected.
