Personal Training

Staying fit means staying healthy. In order to stay healthy, we need to be able to stay active. This means that everyone should work on keeping their muscles active through a combination of strength and conditioning, regardless of age. Whether to build strength from scratch, to maintain your strength, or continue to progress and challenge yourself in new ways. Finding your way to stay fit is crucial to a long and, more importantly, healthy future. I am here to help you find your way to stay fit.

Why Personal Training?

Will you benefit from a personal trainer? Is a question you may ask yourself. My question to you is, what are you currently doing to stay fit, why is it not working, and what is it that you are hoping to achieve?


I will guarantee you a personal approach. Whether this is a partnership for years or for months. I am dedicated to help you to get in the right direction.

Our training sessions are tailor-made to match your goals. The type of training depends on your specific requirements, but will always include some strength/resistance based exercises. Our strength exercises will incorporate a variety of methods changing the load, intensity, volume, duration and intention of the movements to keep making progress. Whether you are starting with very little training experience or whether you have been training for years, we will set a baseline and build a program around your abilities, schedule and goals.

In addition to one-on-one sessions, I also offer duo sessions for those wanting to train together with their partner, a friend, or a family member. This option is not only financially interesting, but also helps with keeping each other accountable and motivated.

What to expect


The aging issue. Getting older doesn’t have to mean getting weaker. As both bone density and balance are strongly impacted by strength/resistance training, you can reverse some of the negative effects that are generally associated with aging.

As most people know, muscles and balance go hand in hand. Losing muscular strength will negatively impact your ability to keep your balance. This generally becomes more evident with age,  but has been shown to impact everyone who does not actively work on resistance type exercises to challenge their muscles. Strength training has been proven to be the best method to reverse the negative effects of aging on muscular dystrophy (losing muscle mass).

Strength training and bone mineral density are also strongly interconnected. The bone density of people who do not move much, due to age or physical limitations, tends to decrease significantly over time. Which makes them much more prone to breaking a bone if they fall. Resistance based exercises will improve the bone mineral density and therefore strengthen your bones and set you up for a healthier, stronger future.

Personalized Fitness

Since you are different from anyone else in this world, your ideal fitness program will be different from that of anyone else. The personalized approach will ensure we find what works best for you, your body and your lifestyle. I want you to feel comfortable and to enjoy your training while being challenged as we work towards achieving your goals.

High-quality equipment

The equipment in The Basement has been specifically chosen to allow for a wide variety of movements for all different levels of fitness. All exercises will use a combination of free weights, bodyweight or some "fun" tools to work on core, balance, mobility, explosiveness, conditioning and strength while keeping movements functional and challenging. The sprint track allows for sled pushes, pulls and lots of functional movements, while the barbell and squat rack are the basis for all sorts of squats, lunges, presses and hinging movements. The variety of dumbbells, kettlebells, and slamballs in addition to a battlerope, boxes and balance balls provide us all the tools to address everyone's needs.

Motivating environment

I strongly believe that exercise can be enjoyable for everyone. Even for someone who is skeptical, dislikes to move or follow training programs or only likes to do cardio. The way this is achieved, varies per person but could be through more variety, more (or less) intensity, more focus on the scientific approach, more focus on nutrition, more focus on pure strength, or constantly working on new skills. My goal is for you to have fun while you’re getting fit!
