Disclaimer: Some friends of mine opened a gym, it is incredibly totally awesome, all opinions are my own.
I had the pleasure of visiting a new gym that has opened in Thomastown recently. Stryve Gym is to put it simply, HUGE and full of shiny toys ready to be played with… or you know workout equipment for the grown ups out there . 52 meters by 18 meters of gym member wonderland and with so much space and equipment I didn’t feel cramped or crowded like I have in other gyms.
This gym has a little something for everyone from beginner to hard core bodybuilder. As a beginner I can attest to how awesome and encouraging the staff are. What was more impressive the staff knew all the members names as they walked in, now that is a personal touch .
My good friend S volunteered to be a gym model for me and show off some of Stryve’s equipment to my readers.
There are treadmills, cross trainers, steppers and cardio waves.
There are so many weight machines to focus on different parts of the body, I simply can’t describe them all. Everything has instructions on it, they are easy to adjust and if you need assistance the staff are more than happy to help.
In addition to all the machines there is a huge section with free weights, not photographed because there were other people working out in that space. This was by far the busiest area of the gym.
My hands down favourite part was the hidden surprise out the back, a full size boxing ring!
And all sorts of fun toys including ropes, kettle bells, boxing bags, wrestling dummies and did I mention fun?
Once your workout is finished there is a variety of equipment to help you stretch, including this fun inverter:
Big thank you to S for letting me take photos while she was grunting and clanking and working out.
