Meet the Team
From our young guns to our elite personal trainers WORK trainers are all highly qualified and specialise across a variety of fields. There’s no doubt that you’ll find the perfect fit at WORK so you can get busy with getting fit.
Since WORK opened the doors in 2019 I have loved helping members find their power in the club. Both here, and my previous PT in Canada and The Netherlands has focussed on helping new members set health and fitness goals.
These goals could be running a marathon, or completing 10 box jumps - no ambition is too big or too small. It is great to see members develop new skills.
My training specialities are working with gym beginners, people returning to fitness, and those transferring into another stage of life, such as pregnancy or retirement.
On the weekend, you will see me busy with house renovations, gardening or completing a fun-run with my kids.
Fitness coaching has been my passion since highschool. Many years since then, I have built a solid toolkit of fitness techniques and intersting programs for my clients.
My specialities are boxing, kickboxing, strength training.
Weekends are all about my dog! You will see me walking, hiking and swimming with him.
Watch out because HIIT Training is my specialty! Equally, I enjoy working with members on long term fitness programs that will transition through the foundations of strength, power, mobility and yoga.
Personally, I love to a sporting challenge - most recently conquering French Mont Ventoux, cycling three times, raising money for Tour du ALS challenge.
My passion for sports is BIG. Especially for Capoeira, which I have been practicing for more than 25 years.
I followed the Aalo fitness courses.
I can't wait to get started with you!

You can think of me as a great all-round personal trainer. I have extensive experience in nutrition and fitness training and will work with you on your health development via food, sport and lifestyle.
I also specialise in building muscle to bulk up or to lose weight. Body building and fitness is his passion!
The focus is on YOU! I will help you push the boundaries and show you how much fun fitness and strength training can be. What is very important is the atmosphere within a club. Fun and work should go hand in hand.
Whether you train to lose weight, build muscle, get fitter, are looking for sport-specific guidance or want to change your lifestyle; everyone is always welcome!
**Currently, on work experience in Curacao! After recently completing Summa Sport training (top of the class) and thought I deserved an island break!
Soon, I am back in Eindhoven, and returning to the HC Nuenen Ladies 1 hockey field!

Personal Training is about QUALITY! Quality training is what I am most proud to offer members. With this outlook, we can build a program that provides real quality of life for all members.
Beyond fitness training, it is great to be able to offer members with physio physics, weight consultation, sports massage, positive psychology and help them with injuries.
The tired faces and the good feeling after training is why I love working for this beautiful club. That our guests are happy that they are members of Work Health Club makes me proud.
I'm not a trainer but what I try to excel at is everything that happens behind the scenes. This so that the trainers can give all the attention to their guests and that the guests can enjoy sports and enjoy everything WORK has to offer.
I enjoy helping people work towards a goal. Each training one step closer to mastering a goal - and then setting a new one!
I love the game of golf. Love to watch PSV (if they win) and enjoy everything that is fun. I once learned from a beautiful wise man, CELEBRATE LIFE. And I do that wholeheartedly!

My weekends are often filled with fitness, boxing and football. And you will often find me behind the piano or with a guitar in my hands.
