The SwimGym is the first fitness swimming pool in Amsterdam where swimmers and triathletes can train under guidance of professional coaches. Every day we offer challenging workouts, technique classes and personal training to help you reach your goals. Seven days a week, any time of the day. Challenge yourself and join the SwimGym!



As a SwimGym member you can enroll in our workouts and technique classes for free, swim laps by yourself or train with a personal trainer. The choice is up to you. Every workout or class takes about 60 minutes and has a maximum of 12 participants per class. 

You can book your workout or reserve your spot for laps swimming in the SwimGym-app or our online schedule. Have a look at our workouts and classes below.



SwimGym is founded by former elite swimmer and two-time Olympic medalist Johan Kenkhuis. His goal is to create a unique training facility for swim lovers of all levels who enjoy coaching, variety and flexibility when training. All our coaches have performed at a professional level in swimming and use training methods from competitive swimming to help you reach your goals and get to most out of your training.

SwimGym is open seven days a week. From 6.30AM to 10PM during the week and 7.30AM - 6PM in the weekends. We work solely with a online booking system, so you can plan and reserve your spot in a class or lane. This way our classes and lanes will never be too crowded.


Professional coaching

Our experienced coaches have a background in elite swimming and use training methods from competitive swimming to improve your overall fitness, your swimming technique and to reach your goals

All levels

You don’t need to be a professional or fast swimmer to join SwimGym. We offer various types of workouts and lessons which you can adjust to your own level and speed. If you haven’t mastered the front crawl yet, you can start with Borstcrawl training or personal training to help you on your way.


Our personal trainers use under water camera's and big screens for technique analysis during personal training and for showing video demo's during technique classes. This helps to improve your technique much faster.

Training equipment

All training equipment, kick board, fins and snorkels, is provided by Speedo and is free of use for our members. You don’t need to bring or buy anything, besides swimwear and a towel of course (which we also sell in our webshop).

Daily motivation

Our coaches are there for you every day to motivate and help you achieve your goals. Wether you want to improve your technique, your overall fitness or loose a few pounds. We love to help you!



SwimGym is especially designed for training and swimming laps. The pool has an Olympic length of 50 meters and is two lanes wide. During the week a flexible wall halfway the pool separates the pool in four lanes of 25 meters, which makes training more efficient and we can offer various workouts at the same time. In the weekend the pool is always on 50 meters length.

The swimming pool is equipped with salt electrolysis and automatic pH control for the highest quality of water and pool climate. Perfect for training. Our dressing rooms have a private cabin and lockers to keep your belongings safe. The SwimGym is located underneath restaurant The Pool where you can enjoy your post-workout drink, coffee or even breakfast with special SwimGym discount rates.
