Meet our Trainers
After I finished my degree in physic education and Biology i started Avondtrainer in 2010. Hosting nowadays 8 groups a week. In 2012 CrossFit came into my life! My first WOD was the CasinoWOD. I really didn’t know what to expect. But man, I liked it so much!! In 2014 I started CrossFit071. It’s my intension to make people healthier and perform better in daily life in every way possible. In my opinion, sport is the best way to do so!
In the box I teach the OLY hour, CrossFit Kids classes and the regular WODS. I am also the man to talk to, concerning programming. I hope you have a good time in the box. Feel free to drop inn if you are from abroad or if you want to feel the amazing atmosphere in our box! We, together with the awesome staff, will give you a wonderful time!
Together with Peter-Jan, I’m one of the owners of CrossFit071. I’m a tennisteacher, with a tennisschool in Leiderdorp, which provides programs for children and adults from beginner till Dutch champions. Especially for the last group and my selection players, I was looking for a program which provides them conditioning, strength and flexibility. In searching for this kind of program, crossfit appeared…
In the beginning I didn’t know what crossfit was, so I started with crossfit level 1 course. To see for myself, if it was a good sport to combine with tennis. After the course I was immediately convinced, that this was THE sport to ad at my program. Now I teach in the mornings and nooners. We try to create a nice community with all the other teachers, which will provide members a nice stay in our box and a good workout!
Hi I am Niels, 43 years of age, married and I have two nine year old kids (twins). My full time job is researcher, but my passion lies in sport like CrossFit.
Years ago, I first came in contact with CrossFit, when I saw the Games on Eurosport. I could not believe what they were doing and how fit they were. Male as female. Amazing. Later on I was asked to start as a CrossFit coach at CrossFit071. Without hesitation I said yes and got my L1. That’s more than a year ago now. I love to do it, but I also love to teach and see others do well too. Try it yourself, it will change you physically as well as mentally. You gonna feel so much better than ever before and it's a lot of fun too. It’s a great community. And oh yes, it is really for everyone, not just the Schwarzeneggers…
Since I found out about Crossfit I was eager to find a box near me. When in 2014 Crossfit071 opened I didn't hesitate to join. After a year I started coaching. I'm sort of devoted to movement and I like to make people move better! If I'm not coaching I'm learning all there is to get our members better. This can be movement, strength, mobility or general health. In the box I'm known as mister mobility. Mobility is one of the core foundations of movement and strength and on of my passions. My second passion is the olympic lifts and I coach the oly-classes. I'm always in for questions or just a friendly conversation. See you in the box.
In 2014 I discovered Crossfit, and in March 2017 I completely ‘converted’ to Crossfit training. I got my L1 in January 2018 and happily teaching some classes. Next to Crossfit I also practise Asthanga yoga and in the near future I will start teaching the classes for pregnant woman and new moms in the box. With passions as Crossfit, Asthanga Yoga and a healthy lifestyle, I am one of those people that never shut up about it if you ask me ;-) I believe Crossfit is for everybody and can be scaled as needed. Are your pull ups not working out? Are you unsure about your deadlift or you have no clue what I am talking about? Ask!
Czesc! I am Michal [pronounce in eng: me-how] You can always talk to me about food… or Crossfit… or try to chat me up in Dutch (keep it simple please, I’m still learning). I moved to Leiden in August of 2017. I am Polish, grew up in Zamosc (look It up), went to a university in the U.S. to swim and study Physics. (Want to join for a swim? Let me know!) After I finished with competitive swimming, I got immediately hooked on Crossfit - why? Because it is challenging but very fun to do with others. During the day I’m in a laboratory at Leiden University working on my doctorate. I coach Tuesday (8-10PM) and Thursday (6-8PM). If you want to know more, come say hello!
I started doing crossfit in 2016, after a long history of going to the gym. At Crossfit071 I was welcomed in a big, friendly and motivating environment. It is not just about doing sports and getting fit, its about doing it together. In that combination the progression is more satisfying and more fun.
As a physiotherapist I know the importance of finding balance in your body between strength, mobility, high intensity training and rest. I combined my skills as a physiotherapist with becoming a crossfit trainer L1 in 2018. In my classes I am focusing on good technique, prevention of injuries, body awareness and guiding the members through heavy workouts. There is nothing more satisfying then when members work their hardest, hit PR's, make progression and still are able to smile afterwards.
Work hard (with prober technique), find balance in your body and enjoy to the fullest.
See you there!
