Fitness in IJburg

Are you thinking about doing fitness in IJburg? Many programs help you achieve specific goals: weightlifting increases your strength, gymnastics makes you more flexible and running helps you build endurance. But what if we told you there’s a training program in which you improve on all these points? At CrossFit gym Vastberaden in Amsterdam-Oost we want to achieve allround fitness to get a better, healthy life. We offer you a varied training program based on functional movements like throwing, jumping, and running. They’re called functional movements because you also use them in your daily life.

CrossFit is unique and different from any workout you’ve ever tried. Looking for a place to do fitness in IJburg but you wonder what CrossFit is about? CrossFit has many benefits: it’s allround, functional, varied, and super social! Here’s why we think CrossFit is the best training program in Amsterdam!

Everybody can join our CrossFit box

What makes CrossFit unique and truly different from any other kind of fitness in IJburg, is that it’s scalable. Men, women, and teens: everybody can become a member if they want to. Our members do the same workout of the day (WOD), but each with their own goals and at their own level.

All our workouts can be adapted to your level of fitness. It doesn’t matter if you’ve only just started training or are already at an advanced level.
