Opening hours

Welcome!

If you are reading this, you are probably interested in joining our facility and are probably wondering what happens here. 

Well, our first goal with any person joining our place is to get them very proficient at certain simple movements - or as we say 'amazing at the basics.'

This means our coaches will guide you on your way to move pain-free, in a stronger, more mobile and better coordinated athletic body. Whether you train in our group training program, personally or online - everyone gets coached!

This is what we invest in and this is why the average skill level of our members is something we are really proud of: you will see women do multiple chin ups, guys lifting heavy weights with great form and a couple minutes later demonstrating great hip and shoulder mobility. Members partnering up to assist each other to practice handstands, playing movement games together or train to get more athletic for their sport.

You will observe deskjob warriors train together with pro athletes, busy entrepreneurs, kids with their parents,... Everyone is welcome and that's the exact culture we've tried to create from the beginning.  

Is it Crossfit then? This is a question we often get because of the bare essentials, 'no-machines' look of our facility. First of all we want you to understand that essentially Crossfit is a competitive sport that focuses on movement capacity: beating records, training against time constraints, training against each other.

This is not what we do: the aim of our method is movement quality. Most of the time we suggest you train for yourself, on your own tempo, with partners not against them, using our methods as a tool to improve your athletic performance.

And this is the place we envisioned when starting our unique facility. Classes, our 'amazing at basics programs', The Lab,... come try us out and you'll probably find your thing here.

It's a place that cannot be easily defined, that is always changing, with a process that's always being refined. 

Trust the process.

Contents of our Classes

It can be a little bit overwhelming to read about what goes on in the EA Facility that's why we suggest to give us a follow on our instagram @eafacility to get a frequent inside look of everything that goes on at our place.

Group Warm-Up & Monthly Program

In our coached movement classes we train a wide set of qualities we think are important for you. We start in a group with a joint mobility warmup and every-changing movement situations. Then we proceed to our program on "The Facility Blackboard" that we change every month. The program is like a buffet-version of everything we have to offer in our Facility: it consists of strength, skill, mobility and injury reduction training. This class is great to build a mobile and strong body that gives you the option to explore anything you'd like to do or try physically. A great introduction to the contents of the more specific classes we offer and the most popular way of training at EA. Follow us on instagram (@eafacility) to get a sneak peek of how our community is training.

Open Gym

You are free to train/play/hang around in the facility during these hours and our coaches will be available to answer the questions you have.

Hip & Spine Mobility Class

Every week offer two mobility classes where we go deep into improving useable mobility and control in the joints and decrease restrictions. Classes are always guided by one of our coaches who will do their absolute best to adapt the movement progressions and class content to your body requirements and skillset to make safe improvements during the classes.

Metabolic Conditioning Class

A friendly and intense group atmosphere where the efforts, grunts and high fives make sure you feel like a hero! A high intensity interval training where we use simpler versions of the movements we practice in the movement classes, but in a more intense setting. The goal here is to get the heart pumping and the metabolism going in a safe way. Click here to read more and what a video of MetCon Class.

Athletic Conditioning

Conditioning and movement practice for athletes from different disciplines. We focus on development and improvement of coordination, rhythm, kinetic potential, power and strength through movement situations that build elasticity and proprioception in the body and a flexible, adaptable behavior and mindset. Sessions are based on the research of Fighting Monkey

Handstand Practice

A weekly hour where we focus on the upside down world. All basics will be covered, prehab exercises for wrists and shoulders, alignment work and more advanced progressions that will help you to develop your personal handbalancing practice safely and with the support to take this journey.

The Lab

An experimental practice afternoon where athletic development meets martial arts and embodiment research taught by Olivier Goetgeluck & Mairtin McNamara. Every week something different.
