Hardcore Gyms


#1

Im looking for a hardcore gym in MD. Something with a prowler GHR log press tires ect...Something Similar to the dungeon gym i read about in elitefts. Any help would be appreciated.


#2

Maryland is a pretty big state, lengthwise. Might be beneficial to specify your area. I doubt you would want to travel from PAX up to Cumberland to train.

There is an excellent gym in Rockville owned by Sioux-Z Hartwig-Gary and her husband. I've never trained there personally, but hear good things.

Maryland isn't exactly the bastion of strength sports overall though.


#3

you could head down to VA if interested.


#4

There's a strongman gym in Maryland somewhere. Nate, is that the gym you're talking about? I have a friend that trains there, but I don't remember where it is. Could be Rockville. I thought Columbia for some reason.

There aren't that many hardcore gyms in (Northern) Virginia either, for that matter.

we have a pretty hardcore powerlifting gym if i say so myself. it's call aggressive strength and conditioning. we are in chantilly, va.


#6

Rockville is a little far (i live in port tobacco) but im moven out sometime this year. its more so based on where i cam find a good job but we will see what happens.

THIS is the gym you are talking about:

I trained there for a week when I had work im Potomac, MD (15 mins drive). The place is awesome, have 3 racks, deadlift platform, forza bench, olympic bars, chains, boards, bands, GhR, tire, farmer walks, prowler... it is in a small warehouse district so there are no college dbags around. I can't recommend it enough - great place - Matt Gary and his wife, Sioux-Z are great folks and willing to help. They are not expensive either.

If you can't make that place (although I seriously advice you to try it) see this:
