Individual practice at strength sports gym Kratistos (free sports)

Olympos now has a great second gym/strength sports location: 'Kratistos', located on the ground floor of P+R Utrecht Science Park (right next to Olympos). Amidst the bus and tram lines, Kratistos is a modern, industrial location with over 325m2 designed for fitness, cross fit and strength sports. You can work out individually or attend classes. Kratistos has two floors and provides the home base to SKVU Obelix. 

 

With your OlymPas you can work out individually in Kratistos. Obviously, your OlymPas also provides you with access to individual use of the Olympos fitness gym and participation in the many other sports programmes at Olympos.  

 
Work-outs at Kratistos
You are welcome to attend a free introductory class of one hour max to get to know Kratistos and its various practice options or to sign up for the Strength workout for beginners class. After having attended either of these, the instructor will provide you with a special sticker on your OlymPas allowing you to work out individually at the Kratistos gym.

Ground floor 

Free weights

The strength sports gym offers a wide variety of options for barbell practice, such as power lifting and weightlifting.  The gym boasts 2 weightlifting platforms, 6 squat stations, nearly 1,000 kg in  bumper plates, 14 spring steel barbells (different ones for women and for men) and 2 horizontal strength benches. There are also dumbbells varying from 1 to 40 kg, kettle bells from 8 to 28 kg, a number of utility benches and a plate loaded leg press.

 

Gymnastics

The gym also offers facilities for strength training using your own body weight (calisthenics). In addition to an area for floor exercises, there is a free wall to practise handstands against and a calisthenics rack with lower and higher horizontal bars and dip bars. There is also a crossmaxx rig with monkey bars, rings, pull up bars and an extra wing.

 

Fitness

You can work on your fitness by using the available concept rowing machines and treadmills. The latter can also be used for an intensive resistance training. 

 

Explosive workout

The TANK is a very effective tool to be used in explosive workouts, both for pushing and pulling.  Jumping exercises can be practised on the soft plyo boxes, throwing exercises by using the slam balls and wall balls.

 

First floor
Here are the changing rooms, toilets and lockers. Please ensure your personal belongings are stored in a locker during the workouts. Bring your own padlock, which arm should be 5 – 7 mm to lock properly. The gym has a water station.

 

Location 

Kratistos strength sports gym is situated in the parking garage (P+R Utrecht Science Park), right next to Olympos, the Kalymnos climbing wall and bus stop.

SKVU Obelix

SKVU Obelix is the Utrecht strength sports club established for and by students. Each week, our members participate in various enjoyable and fun training sessions. While different people may have different sports preferences, we all share a passion for strength sports.

 

Lessons
In the evenings, we organize lessons in powerlifting, weightlifting, calisthenics, strongman and body building. These lessons are for beginners as well as for more advanced athletes and are of high quality. 

 

Activities
Throughout the year we organize multiple non-obligatory activities. These events include drinks and bbqs, but also our popular Bulkingfest. In addition, we hold sportsmanlike events such as the Biceps Games, Gripfest and the Obelix Games.

 

Coaching
Next to all these fun activities, we also offer professional guidance and support for all of our different sports. With our association, we try to join several competitions such as the Dutch Student Championships for Powerlifting (see picture). Obelix offers you the option to guide you through your first competition by personal training programs, coaching and practice competitions inside our association. Our strongest powerlifting members will receive coaching from our national champions, Iris and Ilrish Kensenhuis. It is also possible to get bodybuilding and weightlifting coaching and schedules, all provided by our member experts.
