'I did not do anything about sport for years when I received a brochure about CrossFit Flames XL Amsterdam. 'From 5 to 100 years', it said. As a 62-year-old you do not immediately think: of course, I'm going to CrossFit. But after a visit to the box I was convinced that CrossFit is really for everyone and that the exercises are adapted to what you can. You just join in, and when the others dozens of kilos of bench presses, I do less. The coaches pay close attention to this. But I am encouraged just as hard as everyone else! In a short time I have become top fit and I have almost no problems with aches and other old-age suffering. In addition, I have met many nice people. '
'Every night after my work I hung on the couch with a beer and something to snack at hand. My condition was zero and I looked like a pudding. At one point I thought it was beautiful. I went googling a bit, and it turned out that CrossFit Flames XL had just been opened nearby. I was sold after the trial lesson. The coaches are really great and the box exudes hospitality and motivation. I have become a lot fitter in a very short time and look much better. And CrossFit gives me a lot of energy! I go three times a week and always look forward to it! '
'After my second pregnancy, I was really unhappy with my body. Via via I came across CrossFit Flames XL. I will never forget that I entered for the first time and met coach Jinga Gosschalk. She had a huge smile on her face and made me feel right at home. It turned out she had done a CrossFit and Pregnancy course, so she knew exactly what I needed. From that day on, I had my CrossFit family. I am mentally and physically stronger, more confident and a healthier and happier person since I started. "
'I've seen a lot of gyms in Amsterdam from the inside! But being on your own with weights is so boring, so after a while I stopped again. A friend has persuaded me to go to CrossFit Flames XL once. A beautiful space, but I was wondering how you can get fit without devices. Well, I know that now! I never get bored under a training, because every WOD is different. It is great to train in a group. When I am tired, but see that all others are still going on, I also take a step further. '
'As soon as I enter CrossFit Flames XL, I'll leave everything behind. I've started CrossFit to lose weight. I thought that would take months, but the kilos are flying off. It is so intensive! Now I am mainly busy getting fitter and stronger. The great coaches (Jinga, Marcha, Oliver and Simon) and my fellow athletes encourage me to do my very best. I would not think I'd skip a training! "
