Stach is our Head Ride coach. He takes the lead in programming most of our RIDE classes. So, now you know who to blame after a tough workout :)! Stach has been with us from day-1 and brings years of endurance training experience to the team- plus, the beat of his music is always on point. You might have noticed how he likes to bop up and down on his feet as you ride!

He is a passionate triathlete across multiple distances and usually at the sharper end of local races. His big goal (see goal wall in the studio) is competing in the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. We love that.

Stach is always available and willing to help and we are lucky to have the loyal big-calved beast from the south east!

Ipek started with us a a City Alps member and soon became a key face in helping build our community. Ipek is ALL about community and has always had a passion for leading/coaching her own waterpolo, swimming and triathlon teams. 


Once we got Ipek trained up as a City Alps RIDE coach, there was no looking back. Members love her funky, old school taste in music and of course her permanent positivity and encouragement as a coach.

Naomy Gutierrez

Naomy also started with us a a City Alps member and her passion, enthusiasm and fun spirit was too hard to not take note of for potential coach vibes. Naomy is the ultimate team player - she loves helping people and being part of a sporty atmosphere, given her background in professional soccer as a player and coach.


You will often see Naomy taking part in triathlon and trail running races and trying to get as many people to join her as possible - that's who she is ... a true community soul (and joker) and that's why we are so lucky to have her in the team.



We also met Mijke first, as a City Alps member. When we heard that she was also a rowing coach and saw how strong she was on the bike, we kept planting the seed for her to become a City Alps RIDE coach.


This lady pours out good vibes where ever she goes. Her constant smile and connection to people is something quite special.

Rosanne Bakker

Coming from a professional dance background, Rosanne's experience and understanding of the body and movement is incredible. She teaches multiple group fitness classes where strength is the main focus.

Rosanne's spunk, adventurous spirit and warm nature makes her an awesome coach.


Philip van Velthuijsen

We call him the BIG friendly giant. There is no doubt about it, Philips' big passion and skill is in strength training. He is particularly detailed about individual feedback which is why so many people love coming to his classes. Expect a burner at the end of each class with some crazy squat or burpee challenge - he is notorious for this.



Josta is our newest team member but certainly not new to coaching. With many years of experience running her own triathlon coaching business, competing in ultra distance triathlons, cycle and run races and having coached indoor RIDE classes from a young age, we feel very lucky to have Josta bring her experience and passion to City Alps. We look forward to many adventures together




Manon was introduced to us by fellow RIDE coach, Ipek. They work together at Nike on their training app and have a shared passion and interest in all things adventure and women in sports. Manon completed an intense month-long teachers course in Spain and is super enthusiastic and excited to guide City Alpers through their yoga practice, using methods for injury prevention, breath work and mobility for endurance athletes.

We first met Thomas as a City Alps member and keen cyclist. As we said when he first joined the team, there is something about his passion, energy and enthusiasm for all things cycling that was difficult to miss and all the RIDE coaches felt we needed to get him upfront with the mic. And that was a great decision. He really has the biggest heart and genuinely cares about each member's training experience in his classes. That's the heart of City Alps and we couldn't be happier to have Thomas the Tank Engine (we have 3 Thomas’ at City Alps at the moment) as part of the team :) Looking forward to many more rides, trips and training sessions together.


Latest: Thom now lives outside of Amsterdam and so occassionally fills-in for us.



Georgia and Dayne started City Alps after arriving in Amsterdam from South Africa and discovering that it was flat. Like really, really flat.


They are both passionate about human endurance and strength, and have completed numerous trail runs, adventure races and triathlons around the world.


Georgia has over 16 years of experience as an advanced spinning and power-based cycling instructor. With additional specialities in HIIT and strength group training, she has developed her own signature class that combines cycling and strength intervals. She is also a certified UESCA (Running/Endurance Coach).


Dayne is a strange combination of a gym rat and mountain goat . His daily graft is in law and he also happens to be Georgia’s husband. You will sometimes find Dayne standing in as coach.
