Who are we? - Personal Training Eindhoven

Ilias Maxwell Renou - Founder of Maxx Personal Training

Ilias Renou, born in Aldershot (Great Britain) 14-05-1977.
From an early age I took part in sports, varying from gymnastics (at a high level) to football. After completing my secondary school education, it wasn’t difficult to choose my further education: the CIOS (Sports Academy). After graduating from the CIOS I studied to become a Personal Trainer and Medical Fitness Instructor at Fysio Physics and completed the course successfully.

I was responsible for providing fitness training for Philips in its former locations at Philips S (Strijp) and the Vredeoord complex during the period 2002-2009. I operated as location manager there and gave revalidation training in collaboration with the company doctor. Revalidation training consisted of exercise programmes for employees suffering from back problems, RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) and those trying to lose weight.

After having enjoyed my work as an employee, in 2009 I decided to set up my own business: Maxx Personal Training. This has been the right career decision and I get tremendous satisfaction from working individually with people and being able to transfer my knowledge and enthusiasm. The years of experience and my high levels of motivation and enthusiasm ensure that together we will successfully achieve your fitness objectives.

Sport greetings, Ilias Renou

My name is Anne Krebber and I am co-owner of Maxx Personal Training since January 2020.

Let me introduce myself: I was born November 10, 1994 in the always beautiful Breda. I attended school and lived there with great pleasure until I was 18. I attended the Academy for Physical Education (ALO) in Eindhoven in 2012, and therefore made the move to live in Eindhoven. I had a great student time and graduated in 2016. After that I did the master's in Public Administration at Leiden University, because I wanted to combine sport and policy at a higher level. I successfully completed my master’s study in June 2019.

During my studies I always worked as a fitness coach at various gyms in Eindhoven. During this time I met Ilias and ended up giving bootcamps and personal training for him with great pleasure.

After I graduated in the summer of 2019, I quickly found a job as a PE teacher in Alphen aan den Rijn and therefore moved to Leiden for my work. I soon noticed that I really missed Brabant. When Ilias then asked me if I wanted to become a co-owner in his company, the choice was quickly made for me. I said goodbye to the Randstad (area around Amsterdam, Rotterdam, the Hague etc) and soon came back to live in cozy Eindhoven, where as from 2020 happily run Maxx Personal Training with Ilias!

You may have seen me during one of our training/bootcamps, if not, hopefully we'll meet soon!

Kind regards,        Anne Krebber

Yoga instructor- Britt Legeland


I am 22 years old (09-08-1999) and born and raised in Eindhoven. In 2020 I completed the Academy for Physical Education (ALO) in Eindhoven. During my studies, I taught various yoga and total workout classes at the gym as a group lesson instructor. I also took some lessons here and there within Maxx Training. So maybe you remember me from 'yoga in the park'. I also continued my hobby while dancing and gave dance training to girls between the ages of 6 and 18.


In September 2020, I worked full-time as a PE teacher in Special Education (cluster 4). At the same time, during the weekends, I started the 'All-round children's and teenage yoga teacher/coach' course in Almere. Due to the busy schedule, I had no time left to share my great love for yoga by teaching classes. This lack of teaching became bigger and bigger. Once back in conversation with Anne & Ilias, I knew for sure; I'M GOING TO START AGAIN. I am currently employed by them part-time.


I hope to meet you at one of the yoga classes within the existing offer.


With sporty greetings,



Instructor Miguel de Waal.


Growing up in South Africa, sports were more than just a hobby, they were a way of life.
From school fields to the intense world of professional motocross racing, I've always been driven by competition and the exhilaration of pushing my limits.
But beyond personal success, my journey ignited a passion for helping others achieve their fitness goals. That's why I've chosen to become a personal trainer. With a background in motocross and competing at a high level, I understand the importance of dedication, goal-setting, and personalized training plans. I'm committed to inspiring and empowering my clients to surpass their limits and become the best versions of themselves.
Being a personal trainer isn't just a job, it's my passion, and one for fitness and making a positive impact on the lives of others, one workout at a time.

My name is Martijn, 22 years old and I am in the final year of the Nutrition and Lifestyle Advisor course. Here I learn all kinds of things about exercise and nutrition, but also about sleep and stress, for example.

I have been doing an internship at Maxx Personal Training since the beginning of September.

The first six months you will mainly see me on Tuesdays, but the last six months from Tuesday to Friday!🏋🏻‍♂️


I am currently working on strength and fitness training, which I really enjoy doing.

In winter you will see me on the slopes.🏂


I look forward to training and motivating you and of course getting to know you!🙌🏻
