who we are

Our story begins several years ago. During a summer break, while working out at a commercial gym, we realized that there are many things wrong with the method and execution of the fitness chains here in The Netherlands. At that time in Utrecht it was either train at a commercial gym or go to a sport specific gym or Crossfit box. There just wasn’t a proper gym where you have everything you need to train whatever you wanted. And as business students at the time, we decided to change that. We embarked on our journey to start our first company during the final year of our International Business and Management Studies. It was also convenient that we found a way to use starting a company as a means for our graduation process. And so we did.
As we finished our final year we specialized our subjects, learned as much as we could, did the research, walked the walked and talked the talked and after graduating we realized we were in deep and definitely had to follow through. From then till when we opened our doors we did nothing but work hard, learn and apply. From business permits to the keys to the building we were insistent on doing as much as we could ourselves. From the administrative work to painting the walls and assembling equipment. We put a lot of love and dedication into creating a place we knew so many people would call their home.
And here we are. We have created the perfect strength gym. We have created a gym for any and all athletes of all sports and all levels of experience. We have created a place where different people from different walks of life come together and share in each others passion for strength training and fitness. And one of our greatest achievements is our community. From our Powerlifting Team to our average member we are blessed with genuinely kind, warm, passionate and friendly people. Together we train hard and inspire each other to become stronger versions of ourselves. Both physically and mentally.
We lift hard and grow together.
