    All the best hardcore gyms are almost gone. I used to train at Victory Gym in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. A smaller gym in comparison to today's but just plain hardcore bodybuilding and heavy lifting going on. Lots of tank tops, gruntin, loud heavy music, and the best bunch of people. I've trained also at an old Gold's gym in London, Ontario which was awesome but now it's been baught out by a "fitness" franchise and it's not the same.

    McCutcheon Gym offers the latest in physical fitness. The facility is housed with state of the art fitness equipment available for use. Body Masters upper-body and lower-body selectorized machines; Life Fitness cardio equipment (treadmills, lifecycles, stair steppers, and cross trainers).

    They forgot to mention that this gym used to be the base basketball court, so there is no A/C (Okinawa summer temps 89-100 with 100% humidity) or Heat (winter temps 50-70)
    The one on Camp Pendleton is really nice.

    As long as there's lots of weight to lift... I'd lift there...wtf do I care... it's all about the weight... I will just try hard not to grunt.

    THis place rocks. . .has all modern equipment and lots of stuff that is custom made but it looks like it needs a total makeover in terms of the decor. .perfect! no heat in the winter. .just keep taking off the layers as you train and warm up. . owned by one of the UKs biggest bodybuilders. . .Dean Mcternan.

    Full meals cooked on site, full line of supps and a more hardcore crowd is not to be found....don't

    I don't have pics of it! Will try to get some. . .

    Pumping Iron (now closed) on the upper east side in NYC. That place was the bomb. Many a legends have passed through there. Dickerson called it home for a while. Harold Poole, Orville Burke, Chuck Michaels to name a few others.

    Iron Pit
    Leechburg PA

    I trained at this gym for a months this past summer. With my busy schedule I had a hard time getting workouts in. But then a fellow powerlifter told me about this place. Although 60 miles from my home, I would train there at least 4 times a week.

    Leechburg has seen its better days and is downtown is about the size of a city block. Iron Pit, is on the main drag. There is a sign over a door reading "Gym"
    Its a key club, so once you join you have 24 hour access. You open the door and descend down the steps into a one room basement gym. If you want a mental picture think DOrian's Temple gym. Dumbells go up to 175 lbs. Several power racks, leg press that can hold 2000lbs, One piece of hammer equipement, barely any cables, lots of benches and incline benches ect ect. I have gotten some of my best workouts there. Sometimes at 4:00 am!!!!

    One time I was training there and water from somewhere upstairs was dripping on us. We didn't even care! The bathroom is an adventure unto itself.
    The guys that train there are super hardcore and powerful.
    There is one picture or actually collage of bodybuilders and powerlifters hanging up. Otherwise there are several pics of the hottest women in the fitness industry.

    Its truely hardcore.
