VU Sports centre has two fitness centres in Amsterdam and Amstelveen: Uilenstede and VU Campus. Both locations have modern fitness equipment to do cardio as well as strength training. You will always find excellent trainers in the work out area, who are there to help you reach your goals.
Fitness can be divided into two types: cardio and strength.
With cardio fitness, you focus on improving your physical fitness. You will train your lungs (lung system) and cardiovascular system. Training in the right heartbeat zone is very important. Exercise equipment such as treadmills, cross trainers and flex striders, will help you get into the right zone.
With strength training you focus on the development and training of the muscles. By increasing your muscle mass, you will not only get stronger and bigger, but also burn more calories. Therefore, strength training is a good way to lose weight.
Would you like to train in the fitness facility with a training routine that is especially made to fit your training objectives? After subscribing at the reception or through the website you can schedule a meeting with one of our fitness instructors. To do so, simply call, or ask at the reception of the VU Sports centre. The intake session consists of a brief explanation of the machines and will take between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on your experience and desires. During this intake your training objectives will be ‘translated’ into a training routine. You can have this routine updated every 3 months.
