L FITNESS CENTRE
The fitness centre is located on R1 north side through the door at the end of the "staff lounge". This access route may be modified depending on the activities in the "staff lounge" such as the ILC, but the alternate access to the fitness centre will be posted on the door to the "staff lounge".
The use of the fitness centre is authorized for members of the S&L Fitness Centre Section ONLY (see paragraph on membership) and at their own risk.
The fitness centre is open from
07:00 to 20:00 during the week. It is closed on weekends and holidays.
Membership is reserved for ILO employees only. This refers to persons that have a valid contract with the ILO. However, under the terms of the insurance, up to 20 retirees can become members as well as individuals employed by a company working on the ILO premises on a regular basis. Membership is not open to spouses, children and members of other International Organizations, and personal coaches are not allowed.
To become a member it is necessary to sign a waiver of responsibility exonerating the ILO and ILO staff, in case of accident while using the fitness equipment. The waiver is available in 3 languages (Eng/Fra/Spa) but in case of dispute, the English version prevails.
Each member will be charged an annual fee (180 CHF) that is due in January of each year for the full calendar year. When a staff member joins for the first time, a pro-rata fee till the end of the year will be charged. Because of the low rate; there will be no membership less than one year (except initially) and no full or partial refunds will be granted for any reason such as a modification of opening hours, or any event occurring to the ILO that causes limited access to the fitness centre or certain equipment. The annual fee may be modified depending on membership and required maintenance activities.
Please note that there is a special agreement for the ILO interns, as a pro-rata fee applies for the duration of their internship. The Intern Board is responsible for keeping an up- to-date list of the interns currently using the Fitness Centre.
Membership is personal and cannot be transferred to a third party.
