We believe fitness should be fun

You have to love it

For us, movement is a way of life. It is how we stay healthy, happy, and energised. That is why we created Rocycle. We craved for a killer workout, that was also a damn good time. We are your ultimate health station, right in the heart of Amsterdam. Walk inside and in just an hour, you’ll be completely revitalized, ready to take on anything. Your body will be refueled with nutrients and endorphins. Your mind will be filled with bliss.

My story

A couple of years back, at age 35, I heard about the Damloop, a 16k run event in Amsterdam. At that time I thought it was ridiculous to run that many kilometers.

During my childhood I was obsessed with sports. I spent most of my days outside on tennis courts and hockey fields. I loved the competition and the sensation afterwards. Things started to change during my college years and early career. I quit playing tennis, did my share of partying, tried to make lots of money (which I was very unsuccessful at) and partied even more. Then I got sick. It took me years to find out my lifestyle was the cause of my ‘sickness’. I started to do sports again and my complaints slowly disappeared. Last year, at age 40, I finished my first full distance IRONMAN race in Nice. I have never felt so strong and fit in my life before, both physically and mentally. Inspired by the latest fitness trends and my motivation to do only something that I really love to do, I decided to develop my own workout. Rocycle offers fun, energetic, 45 minute full body & mind workouts. Cardio, strength and mindfulness packaged in one single training.

how i joined the story

At the end of 2015, I received an email out of the blue from a close friend of my brother. He asked If I wanted to join his start up, a new sports concept. At that time I was the General Manager of Spaces in London. The years before I made a career in the boutique hotel industry in London, representing hotels such as Ace Hotel and The Hoxton. I am all about hotels.

I really started to like
that boutique fitness
concept!

The guy from the email, who happened to be Rogier, shared his vision of building a boutique fitness concept with the service of a boutique hotel.  I really started to like that idea. And now I am here, back in Amsterdam, working as Rogier’s business partner.

Please try one of our classes and let us know what you think.
We would love to hear your feedback and stories.
Team Rocycle,
