Introduction

My passion for sports started back when I was a kid. I was always outside running, jumping, climbing and walking on my hands. With a gymnastic background of nine years I build a solid base which helped me over the years, especially with CrossFit.

In my early twenties, I served the Royal Dutch army for seven years at the air assault brigade. In this period, sport played a big role of our lifestyle and I discovered CrossFit during this time. I was directly hooked, combining all these gymnastic movements with weightlifting and cardio. In a short time, I started teaching gymnastic classes and clinics at CrossFit Arnhem & Purmerend. This is where my adventure and my career as a CrossFit coach started.

With my L-1 course in my pocket, I traveled all around the world working as a bartender and CrossFit coach. This lead me finally to Bonaire, where I met the right people at the right moment, who gave me the opportunity to build CrossFit Palms.

With having my own CrossFit Box on this stunning island in the Caribbean, a real dream came true!

At CrossFit Palms we build better humans and strive for victory.
