    Our new home fitness department is part of our omnichannel strategy to service our members and potential customers for whom fitness does not stop at the door of the gym. Fitness and living a healthy lifestyle are part of their day-to-day life and they like to work out anytime, anywhere.

    This highlights the enormous potential we have, to build this part of our business within our current member group, but also to attract new customers who like to work out at home only.

    We are the number one low-cost and high-value fitness brand in Europe. We are determined to make fitness accessible to everyone and a habit people love. Together with our orange squad, we deliver affordable fitness solutions at 1100+ clubs across Europe, to over 2,8 million members combining our straightforward membership model with top-notch fitness technologies. However, where we are today is just the beginning. In the next years, we aim to further professionalize and to continue our growth. We move like a scale-up, making use of our strong corporate backbone.

    • Plenty of opportunities for your own initiatives and to make an impact;

    • Unlimited access to the online training courses of GoodHabitz;

    • Good benefits, including travel allowance, a bicycle plan, discount on health insurance and participation in our pension scheme (Basic-Fit pays 52% of the premium);
