METRO – Interview with Markus Torenstra

May 16: “We are sure that we are ready to open”, agrees Markus Torenstra, owner of Fresh Fitness in Amsterdam. “The Dutch crave exercise, less kilos, more resistance and better health. For weeks there has been a protocol with which people can exercise more safely, such as working with reservations, fewer people in a group lesson and a great distance between fitness equipment.

A certain number of types of training may not be possible in a fitness club in the near future, but individual strength training, cardio and (small) group lessons will not be a problem.”

FITKNO – Interview with Markus Torenstra


Fresh Fitness is an award-winning chain of gyms in Amsterdam. With an excellent reputation within the Amsterdam fitness community, their facilities in the funky suburb of De Pijp and at the iconic A’dam Tower are adored by their members and highly respected within the Dutch fitness community.

Founder, Markus Torenstra, opened the first Fresh Fitness in 2004 with the core principles of providing a welcoming environment to work out in, with high-quality equipment and the best personal training available in Amsterdam. During my conversation with Markus these founding principles were recurring subjects, which even after 15 years are still core to everything about Markus and his business.


RTL 4 visits Fresh

Very nice that RTL 4 wanted to pay attention to Fresh Fitness with Life is Beautiful. 2018 was of course already a great year because we were voted best gym of the year by the professional jury! Of course, we cannot do this alone, but we also owe it to our top team, great collaborations and of course our great members!

We are also very happy with the collaboration with Denise & Daniëlle from Personal Trainer for Health. We have had a close cooperation for over 10 years, we are secretly very proud of that! Have you become enthusiastic after watching the video and do you want to get in touch with them? Take a look at https://www.personaltrainerforhealth.nl/.
