ABOUT SWIMGYM

“Our ambition is to improve the swimming technique of every swimmer or triathlete, as well as to develop their fitness and strength. Regardless of your experience and initial fitness level. Our coaching lets you make the most of every single training session. This way, we make swimming both more challenging and more enjoyable.” – Founder and Olympic medal winner Johan Kenkhuis 

SWIM WHENEVER IT SUITS YOU

The SwimGym is open seven days a week, and opening times are very generous. You decide when you want to train, and through our SwimGym app, you can very easily reserve a lane or sign up for a workout.

TRAINING IN PEACE

We never accept more than a maximum number of bookings for any lane or group training session. This offers you the ideal environment for focused training.

Professional coaching

Our coaches invariably have extensive experience in (inter)national competitive swimming or coaching. The methods they use to make you a better swimmer – in individual as well as group training sessions – are equivalent to the ones used by the world’s swimming champions.

OUR COACHES»

POOL

The SwimGym pool was specifically designed for training purposes. The swimming pool has two 50 meter – i.e. Olympic-size – lanes. During the week, these lanes are turned into four 25 meter lanes. This allows us to run several group training sessions simultaneously and, as coaches can get closer to their trainees, it also improves the effectiveness of the coaching.

CLEAN WATER

We use salt water electrolysis and automated pH control, which improves water quality and creates an optimal pool climate. The water contains virtually no ‘saturated’ chlorine, which is the cause of the typical chlorine smell and also of irriation of the skin and lungs. Therefore ideal for people who suffer from asthma or a chlorine allergy.

ANALYSIS OF SWIMMING TECHNIQUE

The pool area is equipped with two large screens, which we use to play demonstration videos and to carry out analyses of your swimming technique during personal training sessions. The use of mobile cameras allows us to film both above and below the water surface, so that you can immediately see how your technique can be improved.
