Where do I start!?
If you're unsure what next steps would be best for you, feel free to come by for a tour to check out the space and chat with Lizzie, our Gym Manager.
Do you have calibrated plates?
Yes! Both calibrated plates for Powerlifting and for Olympic Weightlifting.
Do you have a combo rack?
We have tons of racks you can work in, but we also have a Powerlifting combo rack for squats and bench.
Can I videotape myself?
Of course! We’ve got three camera stands just for that. Heads-up though that, despite their best efforts, people may walk in front.
Can I bring in equipment?
Yes, please do! Just know that if it’s a large piece of equipment, staff will have to approve it first.
Do you have clubs/Teams?
Yup! We’ve got a Powerlifting & Olympic Weightlifting club. If you’d like to start your own club, just reach out to us so we can collab.
Do you run in-house competitions?
Absolutely! It's important to work towards a goal. Official competitions can be intimidating so we run bi-annual Mock Comps as a way to encourage members & non-members to get into the competitive scene in a comfortable environment.
What’s the deal with memberships?
Alright, let us give you the spiel. Membership is a month-to-month expense. You’re not locked into a contract and can cancel your membership or put it on pause at anytime without being charged a fee. All we ask is 10 days notice of the change in advance of your next invoice. We are an open hours gym and as a member you get a Key Fob that gives you access to the gym space from 4am - 11pm, everyday of the week including holidays.
