Add to Favorites
The JYM Movement is situated in the center of Amsterdam.
Shared passion The JYM Movement is founded by a shared passion of moving through martials arts and mobility training to maintain ones health and fitness by working out together and inspiring others to do so.
Encouragement and support We found out that working out in a group and actively encouraging each other during training helps the other person improving and taking it a step further.
Explain, explain and explain know why you move and how you move
But what does that mean? First every BODY is different, meaning everbody moves different, even when you get the same set of exercises you will do it according your body or lets say level. There’s no wrong or right. Just understanding. That’s why we make a great effort for you to understand where you stumble upon on and how you can work on it.
Inclusive Train with like all kinds of people, young and old, fit or not fit. Everybody is welcome. Everybody is here to work on themselves through different trainings we offer.

The best gym with the best trainers I ever had; and I've had a lot! The care and the attention they put on you when you're working out is so special. This is not just a gym, it's a community of people. 100% recommend.
