Gyms at Hickam AFB / Pearl Harbor


#1

I am spending July in Hawaii - living at Pearl, working at Hickam. Just wondering about the gyms - are they good? Equipment? Hours?

Any comment greatly appreciated!

This is probably best in the war room, but I don't know how to post in there! If a mod can move it - please do!

I used to workout at the gym on Pearl, but that was a good fifteen years ago! Back around 91-92. What I remember was it’s large they had lots of equipment. Probably upgraded quite extensively since then.

Wow, brings back memories of ol Pearl Harbor.

Take care and have fun!

Dedicated - thanks man; hard not to have fun in Hawaii!

Polo - yeah, saw the tour; just wanted to get some ground truth. Like - are you allowed to deadlift?! You know, kind of the proxy tour.

Reshumate - cheers mate; will have to make sure I am in and out before then. Got to get out on the town by 9, I guess?

I was at Ft. Shafter in the late 90’s. I always drove to Hickam or PH to use their gyms. As I remember it PH had ALOT of Hammer Strength and Hcikam had more freeweights.
