FAQ Closure HealthCity Amstelveen

Q: Why is HealthCity closing the club?
A: In recent years, HealthCity has faced turbulent market conditions such as COVID-19, inflation including extremely high energy costs, labor market shortages, etc. We have searched for solutions in vain, including exploring adjustments with the landlord of this location. However, with the best intentions, we had no choice but to terminate the lease and cease operations at the premises on Escapade 1 in Amstelveen.

A: We understand that you have the desire to continue exercising. For this purpose, we have agreed that you will automatically become a member at Basic-Fit with a Premium membership, including unlimited YANGA, for €32.49 every 4 weeks.
