    This place is the best. I'll be in there this summer


    • Bull Pen Gym
      Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

      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.

The music was loud and obnoxious, the machines were "homemade" - the owner was a welder and made knockoffs of anything and everything we needed.

        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 **** ******* a while back.....Also had Alex Federov train there before one of his shows in NY a while back also...


        • Ebert's Heath & Fitness
          117 New Frederick St
          Wilkes-Barre, PA

          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
              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.

                  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)

                  This place is great, espically in the dead of summer at about 2 in the afternoon, i leave that place soaking wet, but the only problem here is the only music they play is that stupid AFN radiot station. Does anyone know any good gyms around Cherry Point NC?

                        Hey John-
                        Just saw this thread and thought I'd throw my gym up there. By no means am I an expert but I've been to a few gyms and I still think this place beats the shit out of all of em. A lot of the equipment is from the late 80s, early 90s and there's 5 of everything. It's an old trucking garage. The place is huge and filled with good shit that I actually have a use for. The owners are the best. They're all about bodybuilding and powerlifting and if you're into either one they'll let you do whatever the hell you want in their gym. On top of that they've always let me trained at no cost and done anything they could to help me out. Not everyone in the place is a pro bodybuilder but everyone IS there to train. And there's none of the bullshit that goes on in other places. The people who train there aren't jealous, they don't talk shit, and they're not corny. Everyone supports one another and that's what a real gym should be like in my opinion. Montanari Brothers' Golds Gym New Haven, CT.
                        I couldn't have said it better myself, Evan!!! I've been going there for 16 years. The Montanari Brother's are awesome! And the equipment?? They don't make them like they used to. Those old machines are the best!!! Gold's New Haven is HARDCORE.

                          VERY interesting in light of John Romano's column in MD this month about Golds new corporate owners, who are trying to move the chain towards soccer moms and senior citizens and AWAY from the more hardcore lifter.

                          I hope the owners of that gym have the balls to stick to their guns.

                          Both you guys and the other members may want to make it known to the owners there that you want the gym to stay HARDCORE.

                              170 lb Dumbbells, chalk and yelling...

                              Best gym in Hampton Roads. Powerlifters, bodybuilders and ever regular folks. Contrary to the beliefs of the Corporate Stooges at Gold's, Bally's and Planet Fatness, regular folks aren't scared of big guys. You see, when someone comes to the gym to actually train, they develop the uncanny ability to APPRECIATE what we're trying to accomplish.
