Wouter de Rijk
Hey there! My name is Wouter, 24 years old and part of this amazing team of coaches. For most of my youth, I have been into judo. As I was growing up and wanted to get a little stronger, I started some bodybuilding. However, I got bored quite quickly until one of the trainers at the gym introduced me to some CrossFit. Then I realised what I wanted badly as soon as I moved to commence my studies: sign up to a real box.
As such, I got involved in CrossFit 6 years ago when I moved to The Hague for my studies. I vividly remember my first workout: something with running and double unders…And I sucked at those double unders. Nevertheless, I was sold right away. Since, it has become an important part of my life, as it is how I stay fit, met lots of great friends, and evolved as a coach.
With the fitness I have built doing CrossFit, I have ventured into many other sports in the last years. Completing a quarter and a half triathlon are without a doubt two of my proudest accomplishments. At the moment, I feel like I have gone beyond a competitive drive to do sports. Luckily, this does not mean that I am done with CrossFit altogether. I have learned to appreciate to do movement in its very own right, regardless of the score. I believe that movement and the feeling it brings is an enormously positive and powerful experience, an experience I am looking forward to sharing with you.
Being a student in political history (yea, big nerd), I know how important it is to balance a (desk) job with movement, while keeping it playful and intersting at the same time. I’m excited to share my passion for movement with you! Let’s keep life playful, see you at the box!
