- Cardiorespiratory capacity is the ability of the body to take in oxygen, deliver it to the cells, and use it at the cellular level to create energy for physical work. 

- Muscular capacity refers to the spectrum of muscular capability. This includes muscular endurance; muscular strength and muscular power. There are different types of natural additives, used duding the fitness training in order to help muscles work without any overload.

- Flexibility is the range of movement or amount of motion that a joint is capable of performing. Each joint has a different amount of flexibility. Some of the long-term adaptations of improved flexibility are decreased risk of injury, improved range of motion, improved bodily movements, and improved posture. In order to keep joints flexible, fitness instructors recommend to use medicines with calcium aditives.

- Body composition is the proportion of fat-free mass (muscle, bone, blood, organs, and fluids) to fat mass (adipose tissue deposited under the skin and around organs). In order to keep to ideal proportions, people buy different kinds of diet products and diet medicines, prescribed or recommended by nutritionists.

It is a member of the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council, European Free Trade Association (EFTA), International Chamber of Commerce, World Trade Organization, Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and other international organizations.

  • meet relevant safety standards
  • have clear instructions for proper use
  • include warnings against possible misuse

You should translate your documentation to one or more of Switzerland’s four main languages; German, French, Italian or Romansch.

Being a member of European agency for standards (CEN), Switzerland adopts any new European standards in reconciliation with any conflicting national standards.

Methods of quoting and payment

Quotations should be in Swiss Franc (CHF) or dollars.

The most popular payment method by which Swiss importers send payment to their foreign suppliers is by electronic funds transfer.
