Outdoor Workouts

Finally we can workout together again...but by ourselves! As of Monday we will start with 'Outdoor Workouts' such as Core, BBB, Cardio Core and HIIT on our Hockey Field Water. Here's how it works:

1. Prior to the workout, you can already check out the exercises on our YouTube Channel, playlist 'Outdoor Workouts', so you can prepare yourself. 
2. On the Hockey Field you perform the workout by yourself, but in the presence of twenty others, all at least 1.5 meters apart. Isn't it nice to see some other people again?
3. Our instructor will not be teaching, but you can approach him/her for questions and tips, to make sure you will do the exercises correctly. And let me tell you, they are so happy to see you guys again!

We will provide the equipment and make sure the workout will take place within the Covid measures. All you have to do is sign up via our website: class schedule ----> Hockey Field Water. You can have 2 outstanding reservations for the next 14 days. See you soon!
