Working out is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, but as a student you do not always have the time or the money to do so. Besides joining a sport association (see above) you can also sign up for a gym!

First of all there is the USC. USC is the student sports center in Amsterdam, focused on improving sports facilities for students in Amsterdam. They have multiple locations throughout the city, for example on Science Park, and close to Roeterseiland. They offer group or solo training, ranging from tennis, basketball and football, to fencing, pole dancing, and diving. Trial memberships are available, and their gym membership starts at only 16 euros a month!

Next to that there are multiple (big) gyms you can sign up for, these are the most popular ones in Amsterdam:

  • FitForFree
  • BasicFit (also offers Lady Only gyms)
  • SportCity
  • TrainMore
  • VondelGym
