Kinema Fitness took a very methodical, well-thought out strategy to the implementation and transition of this brand new fitness center. Our team worked carefully with Zurich's facilities and HR departments to ensure communications, operations, branding, IT support, and equipment procurement were seamlessly executed on time. Kinema was contracted to design the overall layout and the procurement of the equipment. Our team carefully selected the best vendor that best represented the overall vision of this beautiful corporate gym.


Kinema was tasked with increasing membership, building a robust personal training program and implementing an array of group fitness classes that would give the employees of Zurich the full experience of wellness.

Kinema first sourced the absolute best fitness professionals to manage the facility, provide exceptional personal training options and dynamic group fitness classes.

Once the operation was underway, Kinema created a holistic wellness program that rolled out a variety of wellness solutions including Meditation and Reiki, while designing a treatment room.
