At CrossFit IJburg our goal is to improve lives through training. With quality coaching and a community like no other – we aim to bring fitness to everyone whether your goal is to be a competitive athlete, keep up with your kids or just get some headspace between hours at the office.


We understand that it can be daunting trying something new, and you may not know if it’s for you. So before you commit to a monthly membership or class pack – come and try a one-off trial session. We’ll deduct the cost from your first month’s membership should you choose to join. Read more about our classes here.


Meet: MATT. He is one of the founders of ALPHA THREE. He started training when he was 16 and has been in the army for almost 6 years. When he first entered the gym, he started working out with a typical bro split training routine. It became quickly clear that an isolated bicep curl didn’t translate to anything he needed within the job. A fit and strong body is much more useful! So over the last years while serving the army he really dived into CrossFit and broadened his knowledge and skills with various courses and trainings. This actually never stopped. Matt really enjoys putting theory into practice and help people improve training by training. To see them reach their goals feels very rewarding! That is also the reason why he decided to leave the army and focus on helping people build a healthy lifestyle. For anyone who is willing to work for it!

Yes. Everyone can do CrossFit regardless of age, injuries and current fitness levels. The program is modified for each person to help him or her safely become healthier and fitter. Grandparents and Olympians can perform modified versions of the same general workout. Learn More About CrossFit.

No. CrossFit is the program that will get you in shape. No matter what your current fitness level is, you can start CrossFit. As you become fitter, workouts will become more challenging. Every workout is designed to help you succeed, improve fitness and move you toward your goals. People Who Started CrossFit.

CrossFit LLC holds a uniquely elegant solution to the greatest problem facing the world today: chronic disease. The CrossFit program—constantly varied high-intensity functional movement coupled with meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar—can give you a pass on chronic disease. If you are not sick, know that fitness provides a great margin of protection against the ravages of time and disease. Fitness is and should be “super-wellness.” To improve or preserve your health, do CrossFit.

CrossFit improves general physical preparedness (GPP). We have designed our program to elicit as broad an adaptational response as possible. CrossFit is not a specialized fitness program but a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in each of 10 fitness domains: cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy. CrossFit was developed to enhance an individual’s competency at all physical tasks. People who do CrossFit are prepared for all challenges, whether they come in the gym, on a playing field or as part of daily life
