Of the six fitness centres in five countries that I have used in 20 years, ActiveClub Den Haag is the best. Rogier and his team strike the perfect balance between discipline and freedom: they gently push you, while at the same time letting you do your thing – all with a friendly and supportive attitude. The amazing variety of exercises provides continuous stimulus, no matter what your fitness objectives are. The team never fails to come up with new exercises or innovative variations on the tried and tested. After almost seven years at ActiveClub Den Haag I will be leaving – only because I will be leaving the country. In this period I have turned 5 kg of fat into muscle; and my resting heartbeat has dropped by 10 beats and my step-test recovery heatbeat by 15.
