ACTIV FITNESS: a success story

Happy Birthday ACTIV FITNESS! Our brand is actually already 40 years old. A milestone that we can all be proud of

In these four decades, ACTIV FITNESS has grown from a modest one-man business – with a pinch of orange rocket boost – into a likeable market leader in Switzerland.

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.
