ACTIV FITNESS: a success story

ACTIV FITNESS’ roots are found in Erlenbach, where the first studio was established in 1984. Armin Fach founded the company with the aim of helping people improve their quality of life through physical fitness and a balanced lifestyle, as well as by looking good.

Since 1984, the fitness chain has developed into Switzerland’s largest fitness and health provider – but has always retained Armin Fach’s passion for fitness. He has remained true to his vocation and still regularly drops by the head office in Oerlikon, Zurich, to check how athletically ACTIV FITNESS is still operating on the market.


Fitness is more than just a career, it’s a vocation: this passion is reflected by over 3,000 employees in the many ACTIV FITNESS studios located in all four of Switzerland’s language regions. It is these employees who will write the next chapters in ACTIV FITNESS’ continuing success story.
