Community

Crossfit Hofplein is a community where everyone immediately feels at ease

FEEL GOOD. BE UNSTOPABBLE

Feel good

When someone feels good, he or she radiates it too. We sell energy and want everyone to leave our door feeling good and confident to get through the day. Be Unstoppable: during our lessons you will learn to push your own boundaries. As a result, you immediately feel stronger, both physically and mentally. However, the feeling of being able to overcome everything does not just stop when you walk out our door. The positive energy and confidence ensure that someone can overcome all obstacles during the day.

WHY IS THE COMMUNITY SO IMPORTANT?

In recent years we have invested a lot in our team, the classes and in our community. Why is the community so important? The Box is not just a place where people come together to exercise. This place provides a close connection in many social areas. Good friendships, business relationships and networks are created both within and outside the box. Expats and newcomers in Rotterdam also see this place like home in another city or country where they can bond more quickly and meet new people. Members exercise with us for the quality of our classes, the unique locations, the positive atmosphere, friendly and well-trained coaches and fun events.

No team can function without leaders

Meet the owners

Every team needs leaders. Dominique and Mark are a strong team running both Central District en District Rdam Airport together with a team of dedicated and professional trainers. Read about them and their stories and motivations here

Dominique

Dominique started DO IT Personal Gym in 2011 under the arches of the old Hofplein train station. In 2015 DO IT Personal Gym moved to a larger arch and continued under the name CrossFit Hofplein. Dominique has run CrossFit Hofplein on her own during this period. 

 

Passion for sports and entrepreneurship has led to success and as a result, CrossFit Hofplein has grown into a fantastic Box with a strong community. Crossfit Hofplein is expanding to an additional location near the Airport. She feels that in order to grow as a person as well as a business owner it is a fantastic opportunity to work with such a strong team of partners. 

 

“During the pandemic, I felt the need to make a dream of mine come true. With Mark as my business partner and sounding board, I am very happy to soon be opening the second location. “

Mark

For a number of years, Mark held a warehouse management position within the family business in logistics services. In 2018 he decided to take a leap of faith and follow his passion by making a career switch to the sports industry. He started training at CrossFit Hofplein and started teaching here at the end of 2019.

 

Turning a hobby into a profession has already worked out well over the past year.  During his training regime at CrossFit Hofplein, he realized that training is fun and energising but it did not fulfill his need for a challenge.

 

“I quickly realized that starting a business in sports and  CrossFit would be something I would find a personal challenge. “Something, where I can put my energy into but also get happiness and satisfaction, is a goal for me and therefore also my motivation” 

 

Mark started talking to Dominique about his desire to start his own CrossFit Box:  “Sharing ideas, sparring and learning is a big plus for me. In addition, being responsible for each other’s backup in something as responsible as a company is the biggest plus for me.”

Rules and values

Simple ideas to follow

INTRODUCE YOURSELF. The thing we love about our gym is that it’s our family. If you’re new, introduce yourself to others. If you’re a veteran, introduce yourself to the newbies.

BE EARLY – CLASS STARTS ON TIME. Being 10 minutes early is better than being 1 minute late. If you are over 5 minutes late, you’ll have to wait until the next class starts.

INFORM THE COACH. About your injuries, when you have to leave a class, or when other important things are happening. If you’re uncomfortable discussing these issues openly, please speak with your private coach before signing up for a class.

RESPECT THE EQUIPMENT. Always lower weights with control, never kick or throw around material and always follow the coach’s instructions on how to properly use material!

CLEAN UP YOUR STUFF.Brush your chalk off the barbell, but the jump rope back where you found it, and wipe your blood, sweat and tears off whatever you use!

BAG YOUR DEVICES. You can stare at a screen all day long, but not during class. Leave your phone, tablet, and other devices in your bag until the class is over.

WE’RE IN THIS TOGETHER. The workout isn’t over until the last person is done. Cheer on your buddies before you clean up.

RESPECT THE COACH. During class, the coach is boss. Have an issue? Take it up with the coach outside class time. We’re open to feedback!

LEAVE YOUR DRAMA AT THE DOOR At the box, we’re all athletes. Don’t bring drama inside, just lift and run!

LEAVE YOUR EGO AT THE DOOR. Somewhere out there a high school kid is warming up with your PR.
