New! Strength fasting with Fittergy coach Merit   Strength fasting is a variation on the well-known Sportfasting. It is a 10-day 'cutting program' and has some minor adjustments in the protocol compared to Sportfasting. In terms of training, it consists of a perfect combination of strength endurance training and low-intensity cardio in your fat burning zone.   Where Sport fasting is the method to improve blood values, lose excess weight, gain energy and lose belly fat, Strength fasting is the program for losing subcutaneous fat, gaining more muscle mass and more strength. The strength endurance training during the program activates hormones that appeal to the fat reserves under the skin (including the abdomen, back, thighs and buttocks). With Sport fasting you achieve your results with the nutritional protocol and 30 minutes of relatively intensive cardio training every day. With the Strength fasting program you do a daily strength endurance training (20-30 min) and top off with a short, low-intensity cardio workout (15-30 min). So you train more and longer every day. During the 10 days you also follow a nutritional protocol, but you eat a little more than with Sportfasting. On the 'fast days' (where you are not really fasting) you eat a small amount of easily digestible proteins. Through this combination of training, nutrition and nutritional supplements you grow more muscle mass, you gain more strength and you lose a lot of subcutaneous fat, making your muscles more visible. The result can be compared to the so-called 'dry training' or the 'cutting phase'.   What is included in the Strength fasting program and how much does it cost?   ★ Extensive intake interview incl. measurement (approx. 45 min.)   ★ Personal Strength fasting nutrition and training protocol   ★ Strength fasting package with supplements   ★ Personal coaching during the entire course by telephone, whatsapp or email   ★ Personal coaching session after the program (20-30 minutes) with evaluation, final measurement and advice for after the program   Costs: € 300,00 Are you interested?

Nevertheless, a friendly request to put the bicycles in the bicycle shed in the right way, at least so that everyone can easily drive their bicycle in and out. If you come by scooter, please park your scooter as much as possible in the special scooter parking lot. Thank you for your cooperation!     Team news   Our fitness trainer Ruben has opted for a career in a different direction and will therefore no longer be working at Aerofit from February 20th. Despite the relatively short time that Ruben has worked with us, he is a highly valued fitness trainer and colleague. We'll miss him! We wish him lots of success in his new job!   As of February 1, Roy has been working at Aerofit for 15 years. Once started as an intern, he has grown into a fitness trainer. He is still part of our team of trainers. In addition, he has a successful physiotherapy practice within Aerofit. Well done! Congratulations Roy, with this great achievement. On to more beautiful years at Aerofit!  

Osteopathy, take good care out of your body!

OsteoHolland, practice for Osteopathy, will open its doors within Aerofit from 1 February. Thom Stoop and Sascha Bargi, both former physiotherapists, successfully completed their follow-up study in Osteopathy (MSc.) in the autumn of 2021.   What is osteopathy?   Osteopathy is a fast-growing manual form of treatment, without the use of operation or medication. In osteopathy, the cause of the complaints is sought and addressed, looking at the person as a whole. In addition to treating complaints, osteopathy can also be used preventively by optimizing someone's health.   What does an osteopath do?   An osteopath uses proven techniques, such as manipulations, mobilisations and connective tissue techniques with the aim of improving the nerve system, blood circulation, joints, muscles, skull, and organs.   Osteopathy can be useful in case of: ✓ Pain in the musculoskeletal system: neck, shoulder, back, hip, knee, ankle, foot, elbow, wrist, and hand.   ✓ Stomach and intestinal complaints: such as irritable bowel syndrome, complaints in Crohn's disease, celiac disease, constipation, diarrhea, and intolerances.   ✓ Reduction of additional complaints in many diseases: such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, sleeping problems, burnout, and recovery after COVID.   ✓ Sports injuries: such as tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, runner's knee, and jumper's knee.  ✓ Optimizing overall health.   An osteopath often works together with doctors, general practitioners, physiotherapists, and massage therapists.   Do I have to have complaints for osteopathy?   No, an osteopath optimizes health and therefore also works preventively. Health effects? Improved sleep, less stress, more energy, and literally better in your own skin.   Free consultation hour   Do you have any questions or are you curious about what osteopathy can do for you? In the month of February, there is a free walk-in consultation hour on Tuesday (10.00-12.00) and Thursday (12.00-14.00). You don't have to make an appointment for this, so you can just drop in. This consultation hour is free for members and non-members.  More information about OsteoHolland can be found at www.osteoholland.nl, call 070-2230003 or send an email to info@osteoholland.nl.
