Anyone know of any good gym promotions?

My pass at the oval expired, and I'm looking to try out a new gym.

Not so much a gym where you do what you want but if you're in the Vancouver area I highly recommend Element Athletic | group personal training

Nanaimo Aquatic centre

5 dollars drop in for students
I like that there's a pool and steam room that I can use afterwards.
The gym could be a bit bigger.

Indeed. Go find yourself a 24/7 gym if you are able to drive. Otherwise you'll get what you pay for.

Anyone try out Train on Main? I just walked by it the other day when we were going to Long's Noodle House.

I looked in the window and must have seen 10 squat racks and no BS equipment! That's awesome. I would love a gym like that, but a bit too far for me.

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.

On like a 2 year contract...IMO it sucks and has turned into a hippie gym

- No chalk
- No grunting
- Must put down weights carefully
- Other BS

It's like a Planet Fitness for Vancouver
