WELCOME TO GREAT AMSTEL
Great Club is a modern, refreshing take on the classic gym experience. We fuse our state-of-the-art training centre with a completely new approach to working out: our definition of “great” is not only a space for sports, but for complete wellness of body and mind.
Health is at the core of everything we do. We invite you to challenge yourself, either through independent workouts or with the support of our personal trainers. We inspire you to push your boundaries to uncover your limits. Finally, we help you to achieve your goals and enhance your own development — both physically and mentally.
The result? You’ll have increased energy and strength. You’ll feel more balanced. You’ll be better prepared for everything in life — a healthy life. That’s great.
THE GREAT BALANCE
We work hard and play hard. We understand the demands of work and we don’t say no to a party! Great is about finding a balance between it all — one where it’s OK to indulge, once in a while, while staying committed to improving your health. Through our immersive workouts, wellness plans and diet coaching, you can find a way to succeed in it all.
Great members are mostly young professionals who are ambitious and dedicated high achievers. In our classes, you can expect to meet likeminded individuals who are seeking a better quality of health and knowledge.
Great is committed to offering flexible, fun and inclusive workouts for everyone, no matter your age or fitness level. We aren’t about egos or attitude. We’re about results.
Finding a healthy balance between mind and body is at the heart what we do — and we provide all the support and tools you need. With each client, we begin with a medical check-up and designing a personalised training schedule, to optimise your goals. Our in-house team of specialists — including trainers, physical therapists, (mental) coaches and nutritionists — will also work to stimulate, educate and inspire you, helping you be the best person you can be in your own skin. That’s Great.
Our cardio area includes light and open spaces for weights, free training and boxing. We use only Technogym equipment, including treadmills, elliptical trainers, bicycles and rowing machines. In the free training area, you have freedom for your own strength exercises and personal training, while he boxing area can be used for personal or partner training.
Intake Assessment & Training Plan
All members of Great will have an intake appointment with one of our talented trainers, who assess your fitness level and goals. Based on this information, we’ll make a plan that reflects your own schedule and desires. Once a month, our instructors will discuss your progress with you, so you receive constant feedback and inspiration for how you can get the best performance out of yourself. That’s Great.
After a great workout, you can completely unwind in our Great wellness centre. Think of it as your own little Buddhist temple in the heart of Amsterdam Zuid. Muscle recovery is expedited after relaxing in our steam room, Finnish sauna or infrared room … or forget the stress of your day as you enjoy a massage.
Between all the “superfoods,” diet fads and health trends today, it’s easy to feel snowed under by the conflicting and abundant information available — resulting in a skewed relationship with food. Plus, everyone’s body is different and there is no “one diet fits all” solution. Our in-house nutritionist, Benjamin de Wit, makes healthy food both easy and accessible. He’ll analyse all your preferences to create a feasible program specifically for your age, training program and goals.
Our Snack Bar Menu
We offer a range of yummy snacks and post-workout-refuel including salads, shakes, juices, meals and superfoods; all are available to enjoy in our café or for take-away.
