HOW DO I JOIN FORTIS?
WHAT IS S.C.A. FORTIS?
S.C.A. Fortis is a student sports association at the Tilburg University Sports Center. The association was funded in 2019 by a group of friends that absolutely loved crosstraining! We offer crosstraining classes to all members of the Tilburg University Sports Centre. Besides getting sweaty, we love to host activities and have fun together!
WHAT ENTAILS THE SPORT THAT WE PRACTICE?
Crosstraining is a form of functional fitness that combines strength with conditioning. Within trainings, we combines the best of gymnastics, (Olympic) weightlifting, athletics and high intensity training. Furthermore, no class is the same! Workouts will be different everytime you go, so you definitely won’t get bored of training with us! This all might sound very intense, but don’t worry about being super strong and fit before starting classes… crosstraining is accessible for all fitness-levels! Don’t hesitate, come and try it out!
WHAT DOES A TRAINING LOOK LIKE?
Our classes take place at the Bootcamp field of the Tilburg University Sports Centre, or at T-kwadraat (Stappegoor). A class always starts with an easy warm-up, which includes some easy cardio and some mobility work to get our muscles ready to work!
After getting our bodies nice and warm we start with some strength or skill work. For this, you could think of some barbell- or dumbbell exercises such as squats, push presses or deadlifts. But also Olympic Weightlifting, which is the Clean & Jerk or Snatch. Our trainers are here to help you out wether you have absolutely no clue about the excersize, or just want some extra advanced tips for getting perfect in form. All levels are included!
After this, we always end the class with a high intensity WOD (workout of the day). These workouts look very different from class to class. However, you will sure be sweaty and exhausted afterwards! In a WOD, strenght excersizes (such as squats, push-ups and deadlifts) are combined with high intensity cardio exercises (such as running, burpees, or rowing). You do these workouts on your own pace, so the only one who challenges you is you!
We always end a class with a high-five, some chatting, and even sometimes the occasional drink.
A class always ends with a cool down, to make sure you will go home nice and relaxed. We always give each other a fist bumb to end the day!
WHAT KIND OF ACTIVITIES DOES S.C.A. FORTIS ORGANISE?
S.C.A. Fortis organises all types of fun activities! Think of a cycling-dinner where we show off our cooking skills, or a fun trip to a trampoline park. On top of these smaller activities, we organise the Fortis Weekend once a year. A weekend jam-packed with friends, drinks and workouts! Besides all these fun things, we organise monthly drinks at Café Polly Magoo! This year, we even host the very first Fortis Throwdown, a competition for athletes all over the Netherlands!
For some more examples on the types of activities that we do, have a look at our ‘Impressions’ page in the left side menue!
