WITH 14 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, STUDYING AND WORKING IN THE UK
- Personal Training for XPats is for English speaking clients. If you come from abroad to work or live in the Netherlands and your English is better than your Dutch, it may come in handy to be able to start your journey with a PT that can speak your language.
- To help you get started, I have listed all my options on this page. Everything you need to know about the different kinds of services I offer on this website, are on this page.
losing weight is possible through a combination of nutrition, fitness/activity, and mindset. Quick fixes are not going to cut it. The rights path to a better body can seem impossible However, you can feel better in just a few days, when given the right information and the proper tools. This will keep you on the right path with little effort. The only thing you need is to “want” to!
There a so many different things being said about food intake. There are dozens of diets that claim will help you lose your weight. Through my studies and experience, I can tell you in all confidence, that no special weight loss diet, is a permanent solution. The only diet that works, is the one you build around your own needs, with all the right information. A diet that you can sustain throughout. This will make you truly enjoy your body in the long term.
There are a lot of factors that can influence your outlook on happiness and health. My passion is to find a balance in even the most detrimental circumstances. If you suffer with bad coordination, old injuries that you still haven’t fully recovered from or you have stopped caring for yourself through stress?
Bring it to me!

Helping people is my passion. I have been busy trying to understand and help people progress, through health and social care sins the age of 24. I understand the pressures of life can have a great impact on how you manage your disciplines, which in turn can leave you feeling deflated.
FROM TOPSPORTS TO MOVING TO THE UK ON MY OWN
My childhood was an athletic one. Handball, softball, Gymnastics at a high level and Dutch champion Sports-Aerobics. When I left for the UK at the age of 18, sports were no longer part of my lifestyle. In fact, it was the complete opposite. I gained a good amount of weight as a result. I also suffered panic attacks, which left me scared of almost everything and my energy levels plummeted. I could not accept this new life that had swallowed me hole, so I changed my job, started exercising again, I learned about nutrition and cognitive behavior.
FINDING MY SPORTS ROOTS
I started Running and Kickboxing. I soon got the taste for sports again. My life changed rapidly. I felt good, I was successful in the things I’d started doing and most important of all, I was mentally stronger than I had ever been before.
AFTER 14 YEARS UK
Despite of my interesting job in social care, working with clients in times of crisis and edging on homelessness, I knew in time I had to get a job with a more positive outlook. I wanted to do something with the experience I had gained over the years. So, when I moved from England to Scotland, I decided to qualify in sports as personal trainer. Giving me every opportunity to bounce back all my experiences, in my new role as coach.
MAKING YOUR BEST SELF
I started working as a freelancer in a state-of-the-art club in Edinburgh, Virgin Active. Later Nuffield health. In 2015 I became the founder of Chrysalis Fitness. PTONLINE is the subsidiary company of Chrysalis Fitness, in preparation for moving back to the Netherlands. Where I could coach clients from a far. In 2018 I move back and continued with my work on PTONLINE and started working for Personal Lifestyle Gym in Hillegom.
Fitness, nutrition, and mindset are central to becoming and sustaining a happier person. With good balance, we can start to feel better, tackle obstacles more sufficiently and become stronger in taking steps to a happier self.
I have combined training, good balanced nutrition, and mindset training in my coaching protocols, whereby I create a total package for every individual in their own way.
