The Zurich vitaparcours courses are a real classic that have already been popular for around 55 years. But we bet you still don't know everything about them?

How do the Zurich vitaparcours actually work?

The Zurich vitaparcours are fitness trails or courses outside in nature. Exercises for strength, endurance, mobility and dexterity can be completed at 15 exercise stations - in line with your personal training goals. The Zurich vitaparcours combine exercise, fresh air and nature. And this benefits your body and soul at the same time.

Some surprising facts?

Did you know? There are 500 Zurich vitaparcours throughout Switzerland. They're open 365 days a year, 24-hours a day. The average length is 2.3 km, and on average a difference in altitude of 60 m must be overcome. Some courses are relaxing, others are challenging - but all of them can be found in the forest.

What are the best training tips?

Warming up thoroughly before training will help you avoid injuries. Increase your training intensity slowly, but try to include all of your muscle groups if possible. Rest periods are important! With the right equipment and good running shoes, tumbles and falls can be avoided. And stretching after exercise is important - your body will thank you.
