Coaching

Especially when you start exercising, it is important that you are being coached in the right way to stay motivated and prevent injuries. Fitness is the ultimate way to improve your health and work in a focused way on achieving your training objectives. Once you have got the hang of it and enjoy being active, it is important to keep challenging yourself. You can do this by trying out something new or by pushing your boundaries. You will never get bored with exercising in this way and you will be sure to keep growing. From time to time, fitness coaches will be present to advise you, so make the best possible use of them!

House rules

Tanita body composition analyzer

Whatever purpose you have with your training, measuring your weight is often useful when following a training program. We offer with the Tanita scale a total body composition measurement.

The Tanita Body Composition Analyzer measures through a data signal as fat, muscle mass, moisture content. Combined with personal information such as height, weight and age the analyzer gives a very accurate assessment of body composition.

With the printout that the scales gives, we can monitor your body composition and compare over an extended period. From this information we can for example learn whether your muscle mass actually increased in strength, or your fat mass decreased by your weekly workouts. It is important that each measurement is performed under the same conditions because the moisture throughout the day changes. So therefore measure before you start your workout.

Ask the fitness trainer for the possibilities.
