About our Founder

Marcha van Glaanen Weijgel

I’ve always loved sports and tried different kinds of sports until I found CrossFit, which kept me coming back for more, because it is so much fun because of all the variety in it.

For years I was an allround trainer. I used to teach tennis, fitness, basketball, different kind of grouplessons and personal training.
I did this during and right after my sports education. I had my first conventional gym for 17 years.
At the moment I give Crossfit and Personal Training in our gym in Amsterdam.

I also did some team competitions which was a different way of competing but above all very special to experience due to the unique mental and physical impact on me as a team member.
