Good Gym In Irving TX???


#1

Wasnt sure where to put this. I just moved to Irving from north Dallas. I went lookin for a new gym today and all I could find was a shitty ass 24 Hour Fitness "Sport". They only had one squat rack! Membership was a good price but I'm lookin for a small, mom/pop, bodybuilder friendly gym. If anybody out there knows of one not too far please help me out.

Probably same issue in terms of distance but Stroud's fitness in Hurst. http://www.stroudsfitness.net/index.html
It's not pictured but there is a seperate room in the back with squat racks, a monolift, a cage, and leg machines. There is an alley in the back which is perfect for dragging a sled.
Kirk and Sam Stroud have their own powerlifting federation. There are a number of competitive powerflifters and bodybuilders there. Also several styles of martial arts have class there.
