Personal Trainer

My name is Jeremy de Visser and I have my own sports business. I have 13 years experience in the giving of training in various sports and in personal training. I train a broad range of public, including the police force in Amsterdam.

After wearing the Knapman shirt myself for a while during training, I noticed that the compression zones stimulate the correct posture of the upper body. The back and abdomen muscles are perfectly supported . For my clients, the correct posture of the upper body is of great importance. A big advantage of the Knapman shirts are the built-in silver ions that ensure that the shirt is odour-free, even after physical training.

My clients and I now wear Knapman shirts during spinning, bodypump, kick and punch, bootcamp and personal training.

After hearing about the compression shorts I was keen to try them out as well. I regularly compete in runs and while wearing the compression shorts I set a new personal record. The shorts are very comfortable and I also wear them when giving spinning classes. Some of my clients use the compression shorts now also and they are glad to report that they have almost no muscle pain after the training.

I am very satisfied with the shirts and shorts and recommend them to all my clients!

I’m very satisfied with the Knapman products and am surprised at how the clothing helps with recovery. After training I have (almost) no muscle pain, especially in my legs. In addition to the Knapman compression shirt and compression shorts, I have also tried the Knapman sports bra. At first it felt strange because I normally wear a sports bra without push-up effect. A while later, during training, I noticed that the Knapman sports bra was very comfortable and gave good support. A super product!

  • IPTA European champion Muaythai (up to 56.7 kg)
  • Many time German champion MUD/IPTA/WKA

Sport physician & Expert kinesio taping

Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to test the properties of the new Knapman shirt (in the past I have tested similar shirts by other brands). I noticed directly that the material of the shirt is of a very high quality, it is soft to the touch and comfortable.
The shirts are a perfect fit. The material is thin and therefore invisible under a polo shirt. The material retains its shape and form even after multiple washes.

Active properties
The posture-improving quality of Knapman products is immediately evident. More so than by other brands.
In actual practice, I see a lot of pain complaints as a result of the wrong posture or the wrong use of the support and motion mechanisms of the body. This can lead to chronic pain. For example, disorders, such as a hernia, are often caused by the wrong use of muscles. By wearing Knapman these complaints can be reduced.

The targeted compression zones in, for example, the back area, straighten the body up. As soon as the body diverts from the ideal posture, it receives a neurophysiological impulse with a similar reaction to that achieved by taping.

While wearing Knapman compression clothing, the neurophysiological system is on a ‘learning curve’ so that the effects are even visible after a prolonged time. In addition, the compression clothing influences the overall coordination of the body in a positive way.

Of all the brands of compression wear tested to date, the Knapman products have given the best results.

Physiotherapy and manual therapy can in daily life be complemented by wearing Knapman compression clothing.

Extremely suited to correcting posture problems and to preventing damage to the support and motion mechanisms of the body over a long period.

I have had a long-time search for shorts/tights that support both the muscular system of the pelvis and the lower back. These shorts/tights have been developed in cooperation with Knapman. Finally!

I have been waiting almost 3 years for a product like the Zoned Compression Shorts by Knapman. As physiotherapist by N.E.C., I am busy on a daily basis with injury prevention. In particular for groin and hamstring injuries, I have been searching for years for innovative products. I am proud that I have been able to contribute to the development of this new product. In my opinion, this is a fantastic development for sporters. My players were immediately enthousiastic and they now only want the Knapman shorts/tights. Some of the players even wear the Knapman shirts as well.
