Amsterdam Gyms with Childcare

Oh, the gym! Love it or hate it, at some point in our post-childbirth lives many of us find ourselves heading to the gym. But what if you’re a new parent? Or have children too young for school? No worries – Amsterdam Mamas has you covered.

Trying to focus during your yoga session or spin class can be a challenge when you’re worried about your baby. Workouts are more relaxing (and beneficial) when you know your child is nearby and well cared for. Here’s a comprehensive list of gyms in Amsterdam that have a daycare service. It's a good idea to visit the gyms and their daycares to get an overall feeling for them; most gym daycares offer a trial period before signing a contract.
