The Amsterdam Mamas Recommend awards shine a spotlight on the best family activities, events, and services in the city for all budgets, ages, and interests. Nominated by parents, voted for by parents.


Presenting the winner of the category of Best Workout Studio or Class for Parents in Amsterdam:

David Lloyd

We understand why many members of our community rate David Lloyd so highly. This goes beyond the high-quality childcare which, of course, may be what actually makes it possible for parents to exercise at all. David Lloyd offers a wide choice of classes, state-of-the-art machines, friendly staff and an indoor pool. It’s rare to find so much under a single roof in the city. On the Overtoom, not far from the Centre. 


The runners-up were:

Chassé Dance Studio

Delight Yoga

Mom in Balance


Look for the Mamas Recommend window sticker, certificate, or online logo around the city, and you’ll be sure that the business or service you are using is tried and trusted by the Amsterdam Mamas community!
