Week schedule


In volleyball, fitness, strength, ball-skills and speed are the central focus. A beginner will want to focus mainly on technique at first. To improve, you will have to work on your strength and fitness in addition to your volleyball skills and game insight. Increase your jumping power and improve your fitness, reflexes and stability.

Top volleyball players like Ron Zwerver, Peter Blange and Henk Jan Held did not spend time in the gym for nothing. Specific strength training can make all the difference in a game and allow you to respond to situations stronger and faster. It also helps prevent injury. Not only do more muscles provide a better support and stability for joints, they also protect your body when you hit the floor while taking one of the many dives.


A regular visit to our gym will ensure optimal fitness on the field. You will focus mainly on increasing your muscle strength and power. Be sure to include all the major muscle groups in your training schedule, concentrating mainly on leg and gluteal muscles to improve your jumping strength; chest and shoulders for a better serve and smash; and abdominal muscles for a stronger block. Strength training helps you to prevent injury and ensures that you have even more fun while playing the game. Ask our fitness instructors for a workout schedule to fit your needs.
