Alive Geneva is a holistic center located in Eaux Vives in front of the Jet d’Eau. As soon as you enter you feel The Zen, the place is very well illuminated by the ceiling-to-floor massive windows, the colors are grey, beige and white and everything feels spacious.
The center treats the body as a WHOLE and in order to do this they have different services available for all the clients:
I went there specifically for a Personal Training session, I wanted to 1) know what it was and 2) have a general vision on my current physical situation (in terms of training) and 3) learn new exercises I can practice at home or at the Gym.
Jose, my coach, was super attentive to what I was expecting about the session. We talked for 5-10 minutes and then we started to “work-out” on the points I wanted to put emphasis on.
After 1 hour of torture sport… LOL just kidding, it was actually not that bad. The movements were really made for me and what I wanted to work on. But still, after I wanted my Reward, I had totally deserved it right?
“I recommend a Personal Training Session for either people that already do a activity, but need a little push to reach their goals or someone that wants to start getting into shape! “
SUPER FOOD Kitchen
This is where my happy kid woke up and I was able to get my reward after the pain …
I had to make myself choose ONLY one... I mean, even after 1 hour of PT session I cannot eat 4 desserts (unfortunately). I choose the Raw Carrot Cake, because it is one of my favorite desserts and I wanted to compare with the real thing.
There are a lot of differences between a Traditional Carrot Cake and this one.. it is too obvious to list. But I was actually delighted by the taste, the texture and the portions! Portions are quite big, so either think of sharing or have it after a light meal.
The Carrot Cake was super yummy, with a tasty frosting on top and to accompany this I had a Chesnut Matcha Latte! Simply perfect. This ended up being my dinner since after this I was no longer hungry LOL
This is also part of the physical body, but Yoga & PILATES are also good for the relaxation & calm. I personally have never done Yoga… I know super weird, but there is something that blocks me from it. Not sure why, maybe some day I will try.
However, I am a HUGE HUGE fan of Pilates. In Mexico I did all the time and in Geneva I started again like 1 year ago. It is such a good sport to strengthen your core and your inner muscles. I did not try the class at ALIVE, but I will soon, I will keep you updated.
