i think the same, i like to train alone, it’s my moment, my secret garden and the time that i can think. I can go to my private gym and not train, i’m happy and peaceful in this athmosphere. Now, i have no choice to train in commercial gym, and i don’t have the same motivation.
Another question coach, what are the best hybrid gym for you in the Quebec (Montreal, 3 rivieres, Quebec)?
For me a hybride gym , its a place where whe can sprint with the prowler on turf, some weightlifting platform, some leg press, a crossfit cage, strongman stuff, etc)[/quote]
While I am from Trois-Rivieres, I haven’t been there in a while and do not know the gym situation. I trained in the basemement eof l’eglise St-Sacrement when I was there, all the strongmen and powerlifters trained there (probably still do) and my friend Pat Lemieux trains people there (his father too, who is a former canadian record holder in the clean & jerk).
In Quebec city there are a lot of hybrid gyms popping up everywhere, so it’s hard to know all of them. Of those that I know of, there is the Tonic Crossfit which is one of the places I coach at. It’s a crossfit gym but there is room to do regular strength training, there are sleds a a lot of cool equipment. No machines though. And a lot of strong people. There is also the Hardgymperformance/Le Chalet (you read that right) where I used to work at and I have quite a few friends still coaching there. There is both a performance room and a regular gym. The Mega-Gym is mostly a hardcore bodybuilding gym, but my friend Florian Bianchi opened a performance room, but I think it’s only opened to his clients. In Levis the Maxi-Forme fitness (where I work too) is a commercial gym with a small performance room.
I do not know the gym situation in Montreal well enough to make any recommendations. My friend Steve Dube has a powerlifting/strongman gym (Napalm powerlifting club) which is pretty good.
