Fitness & exercise

Taking exercise and building up your strength will help keep you fit and healthy. That's why SWICA makes generous contributions towards memberships at qualified fitness centres and with selected sports associations.

Up to CHF 600* in preventive healthcare benefits relating to exercise

*SWICA covers 50% of the costs from your COMPLETA PRAEVENTA supplementary plan, up to 300 francs per calendar year (choosing a fitness centre with sauna and/or bath will increase the contribution up to 500 francs per calendar year). Furthermore, your OPTIMA supplementary plan covers 90% of the costs exceeding this amount, up to 300 francs per calendar year. This can result in prevention contributions of up to 600 francs per year (up to 800 francs per year for fitness centres with sauna and/or bath).

What our customers have to say.

Melanie Grass
«The CHF 500 prevention contribution towards my gym membership is sensational and unbeatable.»
Daniela Züger
«As a family, we’ve been insured with SWICA for years now and we're 100% satisfied! SWICA covers a large part of the cost of swimming lessons for our children. Our middle child goes to dances classes, and I was amazed to find that SWICA is the only health insurer which helps out with the cost. Fantastic!!!

But that's not all... SWICA was also there for us during an extremely difficult period. Our son became very ill when he was just 16 months old. My husband and I were given a parents’ room at the children’s hospital, even though I was no longer breastfeeding. The situation was looked into and a decision was taken to cover these costs. Really thoughtful and family-friendly. Ever since then we wouldn’t consider any other health insurer! You are the best! Our son has made a full recovery 😉.»
Monika Bini
«I’m a happy customer because SWICA makes generous contributions towards my gym and tennis club memberships. Also, when I submit doctors’ bills they are processed rapidly, and the money I’m owed is transferred to me quickly.»
Remo Kistler
«The Benevita Health Programme is really great because it motivates me to get more exercise in my daily life. And you can use the various challenges to compete with your friends.»
Patricia Atz-Breslaw
«I've been more than satisfied for many years. Last year the BENEVITA health platform helped me a lot. I took myself in hand and lost 20 kilos, and I’ve been able to keep the weight off ever since. Now all I have to do is stay as healthy as I am now and live till I’m at least a hundred.»
Bernd Böhme
«The website is clear, straightforward and informative. I particularly like the BENEVITA app, which addresses interesting topics on a daily basis and really inspires me. All in all, I am a SWICA fan and try to persuade as many people as possible that, if they want to have the best possible partner for comprehensive health care at their side, they should do as I do and choose SWICA!»
Jacqueline Vera-Xiria Geiger
«The tips I received from the BENEVITA team made me aware of exactly what I had to change in my eating and exercise routines. It's true that I was taking a lot of exercise and eating appropriate foods, but the exercise I was doing turned out to be inefficient and I wasn’t eating enough protein. Now I’ve lost four kilos – my body is more toned and I’m pleased with how I look.»
Christin Hoffmeyer
«Last year I started running, changed my diet and began taking better care of myself. So I was looking for an insurer which would support me in my new health-conscious lifestyle. As soon as I came across the BENEVITA bonus programme, my decision was made.»
Jennifer Hoeffleur
«SWICA supports me in my efforts to live a healthy lifestyle. When I was trying out Bodypump with a friend, she told me that SWICA made generous contributions to her fitness club membership. So I also switched to SWICA, and am very happy I did. SWICA also provides support in the form of the BENEVITA bonus programme.»
Shi Rong Danielsson
«I joined BENEVITA in 2016 and it has changed my life completely. I put much effort into a healthy life, including exercise, food, sleeping and so on. Since then, I feel I am much healthier and happier both physically and mentally. Recently, I got my 300 healthies surprise, which make me more motivated to keep strong. Thank you SWICA for helping us in our healthy life.»
Loris Hausammann
«I do a lot of sport in my spare time, so it’s important to me to have an insurance partner which supports me financially on that front. The range of services provided by SWICA is transparent and easy to understand, which suits me very well. I also like SWICA’s friendly professional staff and the easy-to-use invoice app.»
Vivienne Audemars
«I’ve been a loyal and proud SWICA customer for several years now. Thanks to SWICA’s ideal supplementary insurance plan I had the opportunity following a snowboard accident to recover thanks to fitness centres, physiotherapy and massage centres. This has enabled me to get back to my passion – dancing.»
Ursina Gabathuler
«I’ve been insured with SWICA for as long as I can remember. Fortunately I’ve always enjoyed good health, and I intend to ensure that it stays that way. Thanks to the Completa Praeventa contribution towards my gym membership and my annual membership at the pool, I am more motivated to do something to stay in good physical health.»
Remo Walser
«Until a few years ago I didn’t do any exercise and was putting on weight. But that’s all in the past now. SWICA’s supplementary benefits encouraged me to become more active. Without SWICA I would be living an unhealthy life and be unhappy with my body. Thank you!»
Eliane Mäder
«The decision to remain with SWICA is based on decades of positive experience. I’m absolutely delighted with Benevita. I regularly take part in step competitions and I’m delighted if I come in the top eight. This membership has brought a positive dynamism into my life.»
Aike Festini
«I do a CrossFit workout three or four times a week, enjoy swimming and love relaxing at spas. With my active lifestyle, SWICA is the ideal choice for me because it has something to offer in all these areas. I also like the straightforward digital information exchange.»
Tabea Neuhaus
«SWICA pays 800 francs towards my gym membership. And it offers the BENEVITA bonus programme which helps people who enjoy exercise and have a health-conscious lifestyle to keep their premiums down. I would recommend SWICA to anyone who is interested in exercise and health.»
Denis Harran
«In SWICA, I’ve found the perfect advisor: competent, efficient and always available, whether it’s for providing advice on services, handling administrative matters or settling claims. My whole family is insured with SWICA. My wife and I are very keen to lead a healthy lifestyle, and take advantage of the tips that we get from the Benevita programme regarding our diet and physical activities.»
Thomas Pfiffner
«I've been a satisfied SWICA customer for many years now. I've been using TytoHome as a test customer since 2020. It's very useful and has also been very beneficial during the holidays. I'm convinced of the value of this product. I also appreciate SWICA's contribution towards my cross-country ski pass.»
Daniel Strub, Bell Schweiz AG
«We have worked closely together with SWICA for many years now. As a production company with a lot of physically demanding work, the health of our employees is our top priority. SWICA provides us with professional advice and assistance in all matters relating to occupational health management.»
