Current information

Below you will find up-to-date information on the measures we are implementing to protect our members and employees.

All clubs will reopen from 19 April 2021.

All areas will be accessible subject to the requirements of the Federal Office of Public Health (BAG). However, we recommend that you change and shower at home.

The new club in Wohlen will be open from 19 April 2021.

All areas will be accessible subject to the requirements of the Federal Office of Public Health (BAG). However, we recommend that you change and shower at home.

The normal opening hours apply, which are provided on the website under Club Details.

The following opening hours apply until further notice to clubs that are usually open 24-7 (Horgen, Jona, Wetzikon and Wohlen):

  • Monday to Friday: 6.30am – 11pm
  • Saturday, Sunday and public holidays: 9am – 8pm

Peak times are from 12 noon till 2pm and from 5pm till 7.30pm.

We recommend that you are flexible about integrating training into your working day and do not visit the fitness club at the busiest times around midday and in the evening. This will help us to maintain the social distancing rules.

In the basefit.ch app you can see the live occupancy of the clubs. If you don’t have the basefit.ch app yet, you can download it from the App Store or Google Play.

Yes, the number of people per club is limited. The max. number of people for each club has been calculated individually based on the space. Please see the notice on site.
We have installed a check-in system via turnstile (trickle entry) to enforce the capacity limits. This works in the same way as shops that control the max. number of people at the entrance.
We recommend that you avoid the busiest times around midday and in the evening.

No group fitness courses are being offered until further notice. The start date will be announced at a later time.

Yes, all basefit.ch clubs have an unrestricted face mask obligation. We ask all members in the entire club and during training to wear a face mask. The possible exception of the face mask obligation in the cardio area according to the Federal Council decision of 14.04.21 is not implemented, because there are no barriers and a minimum distance of 5 x 5 m per person cannot be ensured. Please consider that no face masks are provided by us.

 

Members with a medical certificate of exemption from the face mask obligation:

  • Even members who are exempt from the obligation to wear a face mask can carry and spread the virus. They therefore represent a danger to other members and employees. For this reason, no exception from the face mask rule is allowed in any club even if a medical certificate is presented.
  • Members with a medical certificate of exemption from the face mask obligation can pause the membership free of charge under mybasefit.ch, as long as the face mask obligation applies in the clubs. For this purpose, a valid medical certificate must be uploaded.

Capacity/infrastructure:

  • Equipment has been positioned to ensure the minimum distance of 1,5 m between people exercising. Equipment that could not be moved and is too close together is either temporarily out of use or subject to appropriate restrictions. Please comply with displayed instructions. Ample training stations are available.
  • The number of people per fitness club is limited.
  • Additional hand sanitising stations have been provided in the entrance area. The sanitising stations in the training area have also been increased

Cleaning:

  • An external cleaning company undertakes general cleaning of the clubs every day.
  • The contact surfaces of the equipment are continually disinfected by a member of staff during opening hours.

Other steps:

  • Hand sanitiser is now available to buy in the Club.
  • Card payment is preferred.
  • Only exercise with a towel.
  • Disinfect the equipment after each use.
  • Keep 1,5 m away from other people.
  • Check in and out through the turnstile. This ensures that the capacity limit is not exceeded.
  • Follow BAG rules. Cough and sneeze into a tissue or your elbow and wash your hands thoroughly.
  • Stay at home if you are in a risk group or have symptoms.
  • Try to avoid peak times (approx. 12pm – 2pm and 5pm – 7.30pm).

Check if you have symptoms of the COVID-19 illness.

The following symptoms are most common:

  • cough (usually dry)
  • sore throat
  • shortness of breath
  • fever, feeling feverish
  • muscular pains
  • sudden loss of sense of smell and/or taste

Rare symptoms:

  • headache
  • gastrointestinal problems
  • conjunctivitis

The symptoms vary in severity and can also be mild.

If you have one or more of the common symptoms then you may have coronavirus.

Members with coronavirus symptoms cannot take part in training and must stay at home. In accordance with the advice of the Federal Office of Public Health (BAG), we recommend that you seek medical advice (family doctor) and have further checks carried out. Please also read the instructions on Self-isolation. We ask that members inform us immediately if they are infected with coronavirus.
