The training is provided by qualified personal trainer David Verstraeten. David is qualified and registered with the Functional Training Network. With a sportive background in judo, athletics and mountainbike,he has always been in love with physical activity. At 25, after 2 years Physiotherapy, a bachelor in communication and lately a post-bachelor in Functional Training, David entered the Fitness industry and sinds then, from nearly 10 years, he never stopped introduce progressively, safely and with passion, functional movement and physical activity in people’s lives.
My passion about movement started when I was 3. Til the age of 10 I did swimming, gymnastics, wrestling, athletics, basketball, handball and football. Later on as a professional football player I had to face a serious spinal injury, which had opened my eyes, that it’s not enough to be fit, you have to be healthy first. It’s easier to prevent things than fixing. My goal as a functional trainer is to make people’s day-to-day life easier by teaching them useful self-care methods and making them move to be the best version of themselves!
As far as I remember, I've always been active. I have practiced many sports like horse riding, swimming, gymnastics … and now I am an accomplished pole and aerial dancer. Physical activity helps you feel better in your body and mind, and to discover who you are. No matter what your limits are, accept them and keep working on them! Sports taught me perseverance, rigor, self-improvement and self-confidence. I also discovered the importance of a strong foundation on which to build your skills - whether in athletics or otherwise not.
As a functional trainer I want to bring all these benefits into people’s life, to help them move better, to take pleasure during the session, and above all to facilitate their everyday life.
The clinic is located 100m from the Metro Station at Arts-Loi, on the ground floor of Rue Guimard 1, just around the corner from Filigranes bookshop on Avenue des Arts. This is a short walk from the European Parliament and the United States Embassy. On-street parking is difficult to find during working hours and of course the street traffic can often be very busy. On Saturday’s however this is not a problem.
