    Anyone here ever been?

    I'm worried about diet and training as I'll be there for a month. My group leader keeps going on and on about the fantastic chocolate and wine and cheeses and all the laying by the lake we'll be doing.

    Any gym recommendations?

    my professor; it's a sort of study abroad thing except the credits come from research paper/pre-departure test, and the time there is spent meeting with diplomatic leaders involve with the convention on conventional weapons and the landmine-ban actors...

    lots of meetings.

    Dude, you're going to Switzerland, who gives a fuck about weight lifting. You'll be breathing clean air, see the alps and the lakes, enjoying the life, the wine, the beer..etc..etc

    :dunno: what that means.

    In any event, I've worked up to 240lbs and while I am going to be cutting in Geneva, I'd rather keep as much muscle as possible instead of making the last 2 years of work a waste.

    it's fucking beautiful out there bro. the country, the architecture. take tours of the churches for sure. they like to party too, lots of good night clubs. you're going to have a blast. be sure to take the train to Zurich if you can. some of the food blows (they have weird customs ie putting cream cheese on sammiches), a lot of it's really good. you're always safe w/cheese & bread though, the cheese is fantastic. really don't know about gyms.

    IMO it'd be absolutely retarded to spend much time in a gym/and worrying about your diet. do you run?

    i agree with threadstarter. youre not going to be sightseeing and partying 24 horus a day. there will always be some downtime. might as well spend an hour in the gym. you might be able to find an olympic lifting gym? dunno if the swiss are big on weightlifting

    that'd be ideal, the countryside is so dank. that way you could take it in and burn off the extra cals.

    powerliftingwatch.com has two gyms but they're not in geneva.

    i looked up a commercial chain called Silhouette but I'm finding mixed reviews. Maybe I'll just ask the trip leader... she lived there for awhile.

    never been to geneva, but if you're going to check out Zurich, make sure you dont do it during the weekends.

    nothing will be open except for a few fast food joints

    This. In your position, I'd find a gym, keep lifting, and not worry one damn bit about diet. You're in *geneva*. Enjoy it.

    Yea I know I'm just feeling anxiety about it... I've been fat for about 14 of the 20 years of my life... so it's a constant fear of slipping out of the success I've had.

    :cuddle: I know. I'm down and out for at least two months total right now, so I totally feel you. But when you look back on this, you will get so much more out of enjoying the time you spend there. Keep up with your workouts as much as possible and when you come back, you'll be refreshed *and* ready to go again.
