Ferdy Wissink and Patrick Prehn opened a new gym in Kleve under the old “Allround Sports” brand. That is the concept.
Combining physiotherapy and fitness, rehabilitation sports and athletics in one place to form a short-distance unit: that’s what physiotherapist Ferdy Wissink and physical trainer Patrick Prehn want with the opening of Allround Sports Kleve GmbH in Gertrud-Boss- Straße 4a in Kleve-Materborn. The move from nearby Querallee is complete and training has begun in the nearly completed building. The official opening is scheduled for August 21.
Robin Gosens trains here
To do this, they built two light, bright, modern and interconnected wings, including a bistro, in just over a year in the immediate vicinity of the Siegfried Materborn sports facilities. Almost 40 employees from the fields of sports and physical therapy offer more than 75 different courses and therapy options in the 4,600-square-meter facility. The sports area with yoga, pilates, body pumping, circuit or athletic training is open seven days a week.
“It’s about getting people moving,” says Allround CEO Patrick Prehn, who previously worked at salvea Kleve on Tichelstrasse. A concept that seems to be very well received, and professional footballer Robin Gosens, from Emmerich, has already done several training sessions here.
Modern fitness equipment
Wissink and Prehn’s philosophy is to create synergy effects between all those involved. Those who first come here with a prescription for physical therapy or rehabilitation can continue their exercise program right next door in the sports area. “We are based on the idea of a living building where you can do sports anywhere,” says the physical trainer.
Allround Kleve relies on modern training equipment for this, most of which were manufactured individually and according to the operator’s ideas by the Kranenburg sports equipment manufacturer Teuwsen. Orders for 80 percent of the trades for the construction of the entire building also went to companies in the region, as Prehn points out.
The company’s young concept also includes outdoor training offers. Athletes can use the equipment both outdoors and on the soon-to-be completed 2,000-square-foot rooftop. “This planning and the good ventilation of all rooms is due to Corona,” explains Patrick Prehn.
Allround also wants to break new ground in physiotherapy. There are ten classic treatment rooms, “but we want to move away from pure treatment on the bench”, says Marius Dauben, deputy head of the physiotherapy department, “and offer our clients active therapy”, where one’s own body weight is used as resistance) invites, for example, to the great hall.
