  • Since March 2013, together with a friend, I have been training about twice a week with our senior trainer Bryan. Previously I wasn’t always in the mood for aerobic classes or the gym, but I am now actually looking forward to our weekly training sessions at Evolve. They’re always fun, it feels great, and the hour has passed before you know it. Mainly because Bryan keeps surprising and challenging us with a huge variety in exercises, and every couple of weeks he surprises us with a completely new program. I am always impressed how he keeps pushing us both, each at our own individual level. He doesn’t accept any excuses, but recognizes when we reach our limits. He is an absolute expert, and shares many useful tips & tricks when it comes to exercises and food. And best of all, I am actually feeling AND seeing some results!

  • During the three months I’ve trained at Evolve, I never had to drag myself over there once. Before, there were times when I couldn’t motivate myself to go to the gym, but never felt that way because of the variety in workout routines. Mike and Sander really stimulate you and keep a close eye on your technique. Believe it or not, I’m lifting 80 kilos now! No pain no gain. That’s the only way I want it. Only if you’re dedicated and give it your all, that’s when you’ll get results. And it shows in the weekly measurements. They’re very precise and really let you track your progress, which is very motivating. Based on your readings, your schedule or diet can be adjusted if necessary to increase the efficiency of your training. And forget about sneaking in a weekend of partying, because it will show up in your tests. Believe me, I’ve tried. After working out, you can treat yourself to a massage, an infrared sauna session or a visit to a beautician – all under the same roof. I love it! But most of all I love the results I get at Evolve.

  • I’ve had a lot of experience with personal trainers in both Amsterdam and London, but if you ask me, Michael Henskens is by far the best and most effective personal trainer I’ve ever worked with. Michael has mastered and keeps improving all techniques and expertise you would expect from a personal trainer. Being a smart guy, he knows exactly how to put together the perfect training schedule based on your wishes, goals and capabilities and how to adapt the program to gain maximum results.

  • All my life, I’ve been performing at the highest athletic level, which sometimes leads to injuries that prevent me from training all out or even result in pain in everyday life. At the moment, I’m ranked no.1 in weight lifting in the masters category and I’m aiming for the world title in October. The only thing standing in my way is the pain in my back. Having had great experiences with Sander during my preparation for the European Championships, I turned to him once again to help me get rid of my pain. Already my aches are diminishing and I’m fully confident Sander will be able to fix me this time around in the run-up to the World Championships.

  • After failing to catch a snatch, clean and jerk at the bottom position and after finding out that I could not do one miserable pistol due to poor mobilit y, let alone a decent overhead squat, I decided to give Sander a buzz to see if he could help me out of my “misery”. I had no idea what I was getting myself into but heck, I´d give it a shot anyway. Needless to say that I found out that was pretty much a stiff Betty. My mobility had left the building as it were. Active Stretching isn´t a form of yoga, it is a workout. Well to me it felt like one. I left sweating, I found even more weak spots but most of all I had a great time laughing at my weaknesses. Interestingly enough I noticed the difference quite quickly. My hips were much suppler, my lower back better yet, I got stronger. Yes indeed because the small muscles were doing their job too for a change! oh and guess what? I managed to do 50 pistols at the CrossFit Europe Regionals! How is that for progress? Thank you Sander!

  • I’m an entrepreneur and a mom, which means I need to be in good shape to perform my best. Training with Mike has helped me recover from my two pregnancies a lot faster. Being a great judge of character, Mike knows exactly what your boundaries are. Further to this, he has extensive knowledge of the human body, which means he can create the perfect tailor-made training schedule for his clients. He keeps track of the latest developments in the world of fitness and always brings in new exercises and techniques when relevant. You can really feel his passion in every training session, which motivates you to give it your all. As a result, one session with Mike equals three sessions on your own in the gym.

  • My name is Junior Degen. I’m 16 years old and live in Arnhem. I’m on the Bijsterbosch judo team from Heerde. For the last three seasons, Sanders has been my fitness coach. He taught me the basics of weight training when I was 14 years old, using very light weights at the time. Now that I’m a little older and can really start working out, those early lessons are paying off. Sander is much more than a fitness coach to me. For the past year and a half, he has worked hard to make my back more flexible and to position my shoulders further back. Before big tournaments he makes me just a little more fit than I already was. As a result I can train better. He also helps me with injury recovery, nutrition and supplements, which enables me to lose weight before a game in a responsible way. I’m very happy to have Sander as my trainer and hope we will continue our relationship for a
