Development of the fitness parks

History

Your health, our concern

Migros has been working in the fitness industry since 1974. It has since become a driving force in the field, a major factor in the development of fitness and wellness in Switzerland. This mission forms part of our statutes: ‘Migros promotes the health of the population’. 

The early days of M-Fit
While early facilities such as the M-Fit in Sion, Vevey and Martigny were linked to courses at the Migros Club School, the opening of the first Tribschen Fitnesspark in Lucerne in 1977 heralded the start of a new era in Swiss fitness and wellness. 

Fitness and wellness combined
Since then, our fitness parks have consistently brought the all-encompassing concept of wellness to life, becoming pioneers in the Swiss fitness and wellness industry. 

Medbase, the healthcare partner
It is not just the history of the fitness parks that demonstrates our commitment to healthcare, but also our latest development. Since 2010, Migros has held a majority stake in the medical practices of Medbase AG and, since 2015, in the Santémed health centres. With this expansion we aim to offer the best possible range of integrated healthcare services. That is why we appeal to people who want to take a proactive and preventative approach to their healthcare.
