Welcome to Queer Gym!
The first Dutch Gym focused on non normative bodies!
Queer Gym is founded by Romy Rockx (He/him they/them)
and for the upcoming months based in a temporary preschool gym in Rotterdam.
During my gender transition I had the privilege to work out in the home gym owned by my brother in law.
I had the chance to get to know my “new” body without overthinking what people might be saying or where to change or what to wear.
Everyone wants a save sport environment but this seems accessible for the privileged ones like me.
This needs to change!
I have a 10 year experience as a theatre director and teacher and I’m studying to add a Personal Trainer diploma as well.
My dedication to find power in the physical body and to let a person find their strength in general is what drives me to do this work.
Before you even know it you find yourself in a deep squat or a dedicated hip trust. Not to loose weight or create a body that is not yours. But to find your strength and trust within your own body.
Right now Queer Gym is based in a shared preschool gym in Rotterdam West. From here, I am building a community that can grow into a permanently space elsewhere. Because of Covid and the temporary situation, I can offer small group classes, duo classes. PT or you can hire the gym for your own needs.
In the future Queer Gym will be a gym where you can come whenever you want!
