When is the batting cage up? I would much have them keep the basketball hoop.

I used to work at Steve Nash in Richmond. There isn't even a power cage, only one squat rack.

Office space is available for lease if you look at the front of the building

he's now going to lease out the batting cages
IIRC he also holds squash tournaments and I'm sure they pay good money to rent that as well lol

The whole thin-dumbbell area is so cramped now
Lol at the office space for lease. Have they ever rent the space to anyone?

I go there, theres 2. Theres a lot of young kids there, and they are annoying as fuck. So its really packed around the evenings, I go there in the mornings.

I am sure you will get stared, its relatively small but their equipment is awesome imo.

theres no joiner fee this month, so come try it out for a bit!

2 squat racks
2 benches
you will get stared at if you do really heavy weights, like 3/4 plates +, lol
don't even bother with them, as long as you push yourself then w/e
generally everyone is pretty much nice with the exception of some phaggots
evenings packed for sure, especially on mondays
all the equipment is newer, it was replaced last year

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Going to switch over to Anytime Fitness on Knight and Kingsway. The chin-up/tricep dip assist, freestyle squat rack and now new punching bag just sealed the deal for me.

Only if Trevor Linden Fitness had longer hours I would have stayed indefinitely.

maybe not your branch since their kids own it, but at the burnaby highgate one.
the old russian lady will fucking scam u whatever dollar they possibly can.

I was in the middle of a renewal with them on another 2 year contract and because the bank wasnt open (saturday night) so I couldnt get my void cheque to give them for authorization, therefore I dont have the key fob yet because they held onto it. but mind you I m still allowed to work out. because technically I m still a member.

anyhow, I went in with a friend that goes to the same gym on saturday night, and today we found out that they froze my friends account wanting him to pay a violation fine for 250 bucks.

are you kidding me, I went in earlier today and your office was closed, so I couldnt give you the void cheque otherwise i wouldve got my own key fob back. but now you want to fine my buddy 250 bucks (which I ll be paying obviously) when I JUST resigned 2years, obvs you russian fucks can decide to either make 900 dollars off my 2 years contract OR take my 250 and I ll cancel my contract since I have the right to do so within 10 days.

and you know what the shady part is, I even TOLD the russian bitch that I did come in with a friend and she was saying "oh okay, as long as you resign 2 years its okay" and now you turn behind my back and fine? the fuck?
