CrossFit is not only popular in Zeeburg, but all over the world. The training program was established in the US in the early 2000s and has gained popularity ever since. CrossFit was created by a gymnast who set out to work with the idea that a multidisciplinary approach to sports would lead to allround fitness. He started to take the best aspects from all kinds of sports and use them in his fitness workouts. The concept caught on and it is estimated that a couple of million people worldwide are doing CrossFit.
But why has CrossFit become so popular and why does it appeal to so many people? There are many answers to this question, but we’ll highlight the most important ones for you.
One of the main reasons why people struggle with going to a gym regularly is because they get bored with their fitness routines. Here’s one big key to the success of our CrossFit box in Amsterdam: CrossFit workouts are never boring. Each day, we do a new and unique workout, which is called the workout of the day (WOD). Due to its variation and diverse nature, you will be challenged and curious every day.
There’s no such thing as a standard method for developing WODs and each CrossFit box is offering unique workouts. It is exactly at this aspect where you can separate the wheat from the chaff. At our CrossFit box in Zeeburg we want our members to experience five-star fitness every time they come to the box. We’ve been teaching CrossFit in Amsterdam since 2016 and use all our experience and creativity to develop great WODs. If you want to experience the best CrossFit workouts in Amsterdam, you should certainly book a class with us. Are you new at CrossFit or new at Vastberaden? You can book a two-week trial via our website.
We also welcome CrossFitters from all over the world to join us for a five-star CrossFit workout in Zeeburg.

In any workout we use some of the most effective CrossFit exercises and we do functional movements. These are movements that are directly applicable in your daily life. CrossFit is a full-body workout that helps you become fitter in general and lead a fulfilling life. It makes CrossFit unique and very different from other fitness programs, that often focus on a specific goal, like losing weight. In order to accomplish that type of goal you usually do a set of exercises, and you repeat that set many times. Repeat….repeat…repeat… can you see the boredom luring around the corner?
In our CrossFit box in Zeeburg boredom will never enter the building. There are so many possible elements that we can incorporate, so you’ll never do the same workout twice! We’re also doing our workouts at a high intensity. They are very effective, making CrossFit a sport where you can burn a lot of calories in a short period of time. It doesn’t take long before you begin to notice the results of your CrossFit workouts.
We won’t be playing it down or sugarcoating it: CrossFit is intense, fast-paced, and demanding. At the same time, it is fun, challenging, and highly rewarding. The overall intensity of the program is also the driving force of its effectiveness. You’ll quickly notice that you’re making progress. So, what’s CrossFit good for then? CrossFit helps you improve on so many points faster than any traditional workout. What do losing weight, building strength, improving mobility or general health have in common? All of them are benefits of doing CrossFit workouts!

Joining our CrossFit classes at our fitness gym near IJburg means you’ll soon notice you’ll be getting fitter. We also visualize your progress in a CrossFit app. It’s great and absolutely motivating to see how you’re improving on your fitness. Our CrossFit gym in Zeeburg uses BTWB, the official CrossFit app. When doing a long-term training program like CrossFit, it’s essential to have a tracking device. With BTWB, planning, logging, and analyzing your achievements is easy. The app was designed by athletes and has a lot of useful features. You can analyze your progress, and keep track of movement volume (like distance, load, and number of reps). The app also shows you where the imbalances are between strength and technique.
Members of Vastberaden can use the BTWB app for free, it is included in your membership. With BTWB we log your progress, identify weaknesses, and start working on them.

We have special Basics Classes for beginning CrossFitters. Our Basics Class 1 is about the most common functional movements. We’ll teach you how to do a squat and also pressing, pulling, and hinging.

It won’t cost you anything, because it’s included in your membership. Did you know that doing yoga can also help you become a better CrossFitter? Heldhaftig Yoga offers three types of yoga classes.
