    Panther's boxing club, Edmonton, Canada. The guys tell me when the meat packing plant was above us it literally dripped blood on from the ceiling, and they just continued to train. I've never been to a more stanky, ill-lit, motivational, balls to the wall gym in my life. No need to lock up your stuff either, we're too afraid of one another to steal.
    Second runner up in Edmonton, "Hardcore gym". The old Gold's in the mecca is what this place is modeled after. Complete with all the equipment one needs, most BB/Fitness/Figure competitors go here. Home of Dan Fedeluk, who? (Can. IFBB pro). The only reason this place isn't first on my list is because you can't hawk up lugees into the garbage bucket out in the open like you can at Panthers.

    I'm not sure how far it is from you, but the Iron Sport gym is about as serious as you can get.

    Gotta give a shout out to World Gym in Pacific Beach, San Diego. I've been training there since January and love it!!! If you need neon lights and shiny new rubber coated weights, this ISN'T the place for you.

    Great gym. Dumbells up to 200. Tons of plates. More equipment than any chain gym twice the square footage. You can go crazy and no one stares like a moron. Been there for 5 years now.

    Diamond Gym in Maplewood has got to be among the most hardcore in the nation.

    I'm growing a liking to Apollon Gym in Edison, its dark and basic, they still have the old school medal weights and a hardcore attitude.

    Im with you on the Apollon Gym in Edison, NJ. Place is no bullshit, and got some big meatheads that are there to throw some weight....had a seminar with Dave Palumbo a while back.....Also had Alex Federov train there before one of his shows in NY a while back also...

    It's called "Health & Fitness", but it's pure hardcore. The gym was built for the owners sons in the late 70's who went on to become national level competitors. The trophy case is huge, and filled with awards. Tons of iron, and a good mix of new and old machines. The fixed ez-bars go up to 200, and the dumbells are 150 or so. Nothing fancy here, but it's a great place to train with a lot of history.

    Freeland YMCA
    600 Front Street
    Freeland, PA

    This place is nothing short of a full on dungeon. Racks, benches, tons of plates and dumbells, and some old ass machines that still work great (sometimes). Your hands will be dirty as hell when you leave haha, and you can get a great workout going. I've hit several milestone PRs here, and plan on doing more. I'm not even sure if anybody bothers with the weight room because I've never paid to use it. You walk in and they know what you're there for, and just point down the stairs into the dungeon. You won't even find anybody who knows what the hell a lunk alarm is in that place.

    I'm going to try and go out some day and get pictures of the places I've mentioned. I was really impressed and excited when I saw the other gyms I listed printed in MD. I haven't seen the gym owners yet, but I'm sure they'll be thrilled. Anybody like the idea of a "hardcore gym of the month" one or two page layout. You guys could fit it in with 500 pages going! We should really showcase these places, and inspire more people to train in them.

    Finally got out . Guess what a Trainer at Planet full of Sh$$ recomended a gym to me here it is
    Body Dynamics
    Huntingdon Vally PA 19006
    215-942-9400 Bodydynamicsfitness.com
    I went in to this place and as soon as I stepped in I knew I was home. These guys that own it seem real cool and they knew all about planet SHIT. The day I walked in I talked to the owner for about 5 min and he said to me go try the gym and work out didn't even tell him that I was going to join but of course I did. Let me tell ya there were some women in there who I would like to get to wring the little pencil neck geeks at PF. Thanx to everyone who did try and help out here in PA.
