If you’re into calisthenics, Amsterdam is a great place to live. The city has installed calisthenics workout equipment in parks all over the city and there are plenty of areas where the urban landscape provides opportunities to do a bodyweight workout. Alongside the numerous calisthenics parks Amsterdam, there are a selection of calisthenics gyms in Amsterdam too. You’ll find all the details right here.
Calisthenics Parks Amsterdam
Calisthenics Park – Rembrandt Park (RembrandtPark), 1058 GD Amsterdam (West)
The street workout gym has fitted an amazing bodyweight fitness training area in the Rembrandt Park. The outdoor calisthenics gym includes pull up bars, high bars, low bars, monkey benches, parallel bars, and more. The park can be reached by bike or car, or by taking the metro to station Lelylaan. This is probably the best, most well-equipped calisthenics park in Amsterdam.

The BarzQuad calisthenics park Amsterdam is an impressive creation. There are all kinds of bars setup here. The area can get a bit busy during the early evening but there are always bars available to exercise on.

Famba Fitness – Rembrandt Park Calisthenics Area
Famba Fitness offers 1 to 1 personal training and personalised group lessons. The owner/trainer, Solly, has a passion for helping students reach their fitness and health goals. When I spoke with him he explained to me that he wants to “teach people how to train smart for their specific goals. I want them to get the results that they deserve, for the effort they put in. For me, Famba Fitness is about taking steps towards your goals. I hope that it can be that for you too.”
The style of training is fun and challenging. It’s a mix of calisthenics, gymnastics, weight training, and movement.
With the 1-to-1 personal training, everything will be based on getting you the best results. You can expect expert guidance, a flexible schedule and full attention during your sessions.
The style of the group lessons is somewhat different from what you might have done before. The special thing about this group, besides the great atmosphere, is that Solly designs everyone a custom program based on their goals and level. That means you have the benefit of a group atmosphere with an individual approach.
“I’ve been teaching people for 6 years, gathering in-person experience on the best training, nutrition and recovery methods and looking forward to helping you in your journey to becoming a better version of yourself.”Solly, Famba Fitness
