Health Quota Teens 8

Take a free trial now and receive a free HQ T-shirt when you purchase an 11-visit pass by the end of May!

At the beginning of this year we featured an article on the newly launched HealthQuota health and well-being center in Mies on our website.  Since that time, the business has gone from strength to strength, with many new members signing up for its GymHQ and StudioHQ classes.

Recognizing a growing demand for its services amongst youngsters, the center has now expanded its range of classes for teens. In addition to its daily CrossFit (strength and conditioning) sessions for teens in the gym, youngsters can now join a new Teen Pilates class on Thursdays at 16h30 as well as a combined Adult-Teen Yoga class on Wednesdays at 17h30 and and Sundays at 9h.

Co-Founder Mandy Thomas explains the reason behind the new classes, “We believe the Next Generation should have the opportunity to find their HealthQuota too. In this fast-moving, high stress digital world, we believe it’s important to help kids and teens grow their self-esteem, handle stress and take pleasure in the growing abilities of their mind and body.”

Lots of opportunities in Geneva and Vaud this summer for girls to discover netball!

Switzerland has just won the Challenge Cup at the 2017 Netball Europe Under 17 Championship, taking the gold medal after convincing wins in all three of its championship games.

This is the second time in three years that Swiss Netball has taken the gold medal and Challenge Cup, after victory in 2015, and silver medal position in 2016. The team was composed of 12 junior members of the Swiss National Squad, who train throughout the year, at venues in the cantons of Geneva and Zug.

This year’s championships took place in Belfast, Northern Ireland, from 3-5 March, and brought together established netball nations such as England and Wales, as well as nations where netball is still developing, including Switzerland, which only fielded its first Under 17 team in 2010.

“We are very proud of this fantastic achievement by our young talented team”, said Swiss Netball President, Emma Connolly. “Netball is still very much a new sport in Switzerland, so we hope that this win will encourage even more young Swiss girls and women to join a netball club and try out this phenomenal team sport”.

Special offers for knowitall.ch readers!

A new health and well-being center has opened between Geneva and Lausanne, offering a wide range of services for the expat and local communities of the Terre-Sainte region.  Called Health Quota, the new center is conveniently located near to the Mies station, in a large, airy space, which provides a cross-functional approach to physical, mental and nutritional well-being.

Building on the success of its 4-year-old CrossFit Terre Sainte core gym business, the newly rebranded Health Quota center is the brain-child of three local women, Rebecca Bar-Tur, Mandy Thomas, and Melodie Mazur.  With a common vision to help people embrace healthy and happy lives, the three women have embarked on a mission of broadening the appeal of the center to include a much wider range of services such as yoga, Pilates, stretching, running, and other specialized exercise classes as well as beauty, massage and life services.

5% discount on ski lessons from Ski Pros Megeve

With the summer drawing to a close and Autumn now approaching it’s time to start thinking about skiing again!

Although many of you probably won’t be putting any skis on for at least another 3 months, you do need to look at your schedule for the winter season and plan ahead – especially if you want to book any ski lessons for yourself or your kids.  The most popular ski instructors get booked up very quickly, with some families reserving spaces for the entire season!

One ski school, which we have featured often on this site and which is very popular with the expat community, is Ski Pros Megeve.  Operating in the region for 24 years (including 18 seasons at Megève), the school currently has a team of 11 American, English and French independent instructors, who know the local resorts inside out.
