Who am i?
My name is Hendri Vermeer, 25 years old and live in Randwijk, the Netherlands. I’ve always had a passion for sports and exercise, so in 2011 I decided I wanted to expand my knowledge on this subject and started a study called ‘Sports & Movement’. After a while I decided to take courses in movement behavior and skills, so I could educate others on their movement. I also accomplished to get my license as a fitness instructor, I’ve learned how to make training schedules and how to train save. I continued to develop my own skills and the skill to help others in training and movement.
After I graduated in 2015, I started my career at the Royal Netherlands Air Force as a civil employee. The main goal as a sport instructor at the RNAF is to keep the soldiers not only physical fit, but also mentally fit. My interest in functional training grew and that’s how my passion for calisthenics started. Before I learned more about functional training I was often walking around the gym with pain and minor injuries. I started to ask myself questions like: “how can I train in a fun way?”, “In what way can I feel better after a training instead of feeling worse?” and “how can I prevent injuries?”. YouTube was my main source of inspiration, strong and fit guys who did the craziest things with their bodies. That’s what I wanted to do myself!
When in 2016 the course Calisthenics Trainer started, I applied immediately and finished the course with success. When time went by, I started to notice my passion for calisthenics grew a lot and wanted to share this passion with others. At work, while doing my own training, in daily life, just anywhere I wanted to share this passion.
So, in 2018 I decided to offer my services as an online calisthenics coach worldwide. At the moment I combine my work at the RNAF and online coaching with a lot of passion. Can I drag you into that passion as well?
