This week’s trainer is… Hamza Bouamrani!
1: Since when do you work at USC?
Since 2015! I started out as a krachtwacht (that duty doesn’t exist anymore) and a couple of months later I got my first fitness shift on Saturday.
2: If we can’t find you, at what USC location should we start our search? And what do you like about that location?
I’m predominantly present at ClubWest – for both work and my own workouts.
And the thing I like the most about ClubWest is the people I’ve met over the past years. I always go to work to ClubWest and Amstelcampus with a smile, and that’s mainly because of the USC members that work out over there – and also a little because of my colleagues 😉).
3: Is there something maybe not a lot of people at USC know about you?
I’m a huge fan of Japanese animation films A.K.A. anime. And I’m not even ashamed, haha.
4: A sports career is often characterized by lots of highs and lows. What is your most memorable highlight?
Up until now, my most memorable highlights are my heaviest lifts.
- 186 kg squat;
- 130 kg bench (135 unofficially);
- 230 kg deadlift.
And I think there’s also some range for improvement! :)
5: What is your best characteristic as a trainer?
Oe, that’s a hard one… What I often hear from people is that I’m always happy and not too stressed out. I guess haha.
6: What accomplishment are you most proud of as a trainer?
That people keep coming to my classes with confidence and satisfaction. That’s really a nice feeling to have as a trainer.
