To ensure that visits to our club are as pleasant, hygienic and safe as possible we have some house rules. Each visitor is obligated to follow these rules. We would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation.
The Consumer is obligated to report a medical contraindication for Fitness to the Business before using the facilities. It is not allowed to use machines or facilities that are unknown to you. Please inform an employee of Health Club Jordaan so they can provide instructions. Instructions given by employees need to be followed at all times.
With each visit members of Health Club Jordaan have to check in at the front desk by swiping their club card at one of the card readers. When you do not have a club card (on you) access beyond the front desk area is only allowed with approval from one of our employees. If you lose the club card you will have to buy a replacing card for €5,-. You will not receive a refund when you find your original club card.
Access to group classes
Upon entry you will receive an activation email to create a personal Health Club Jordaan account. With the account you can book group classes 24 hours in advance or later via your internet browser or the Health Club Jordaan app (download from the “Play Store” or “App Store”). It is also possible to book a group class in person at the front desk. Please cancel the booking if you decide not to participate. Canceling is done the same way as booking.
Participating in group classes and working out
When participating in group classes and during workouts you are obligated to follow the instructions of the trainers/instructors at all times. Trainers/instructors have the right to refuse or remove participants when they deem necessary. The right to participate expires when you are not present and ready at least 5 minutes before the class/training starts. It is not allowed to enter the training area after the class/training has started because it is disturbing and possibly unsafe. For the same reasons it is also not allowed to leave the training area before the class/training has ended, unless prior approval has been given by the trainers/instructors.
Personal belongings must be stored in a locker. Other than a towel and closed drinking container no items are allowed in the training areas, unless kept on your person. Before leaving the club the locker must be emptied and left unlocked. Locked lockers will be opened at the end of the day and found items will be removed. If we removed your belongings from a locker you can collect them at the front desk. Items will only be stored by us for 1 week. Health Club Jordaan is not responsible for theft or damages to properties.

Shoes that have been worn outside or that are not designed for training (flip flops, sandals et cetera) are not allowed. Each visitor has to wear appropriate sportswear during training. Tops and shirts without sleeves are allowed but only if they cover the chest, stomach, back and side of the body. Shorts are fine of course but they have to cover the butt and part of the upper legs.
