When someone would start a gym in my town, like the one from Coach, he could welcome 10-20 members right away.

Since you're from the Netherlands as well, do you know Kneets Gym in The Hague?
Peter started his gym in a small garage box, thirtysomething years ago..

I know of it, but I've never been there. In the past my local gyms were very good, so there was no need to look elsewhere. But yes, you are right: it can work. It's just that for most it doesn't. Too bad, I prefer such small and crunchy setups.

BTW, have you seen Dorians gym? Not exactly Equinox. It's a real gym.

 Cry  I lift at Equinox when I don't use my home gym.

I've been there once. It's cool that their dumbbells go up to 70kg, but other than that this isn't my place. I prefer a garage setting, like Coach has.

Nee, woon er 10 km vandaan, en jij?

Shitty benches, but its the only one in town with a decent squat rack and good set of dumbbells.



You have the same problem I have, small gyms in my town too. Sometimes I use some equipment I've bought, it looks like it's made for kids but oh well haha  Cheesy

It doesn't matter how shitty it looks, as long it's reliable/functionable  Wink
It's not the size of my gym that bothers me, it's just a little too small, but rather their shitty/fragile SportsArt & Hoist equipment line. We have three lat pulleys and three leg presses as well, and all of them SUCK , Chinese crap Angry

The rack and the bench came from Rogue, the rack was co-designed with Westside. It is built like a fukkin' tank. With the safety spot arms, it weighs over 200 pounds. The bench is Rogue's "Monster Bench" with the "Thompson Fatpad", which is a more solid, larger surface. It helps support my potentially dodgy shoulders. I hate benches that move around under me, and this one is rooted to the ground. My wife complains because it is heavy and hard to move.

If it helps, I don't always train at my gym. Once in a while I go to MetRx.

Ik woon in Dordrecht, dus genoeg sportscholen hier: De Ringer, Den Otter, DJ's Workout. Vroeger (jaren 80) was Dordt echt een mekka voor gewichten.
