there’s a rack upstairs and one in the basement.
The only problem with the ownership is they are trying to make the gym into a regular gym rather than something unique. I have actually been working on them to get a platform/bumper plates, but they are pretty unresponsive to ideas because the financial situation isn’t so great at the moment.
There’s a friend of mine i’m hoping will become the manager. He was going to make it more of a strongman type gym, which is something I really want to get into. I think within a little while he’ll be starting a gym one way or another. As far as I know there are no strongman gyms in calgary.
I think fitness depot has the cheapest stuff, though used equipment would be much cheaper. It’s unfortunate the price of iron has increased so much recently. I got my iron and olympic bars for 49 cents a pound about five years back. I doubt it will be nearly as cheap now.
I think i’ve got the cheapest membership out of anyone that goes to ironworks, since i’ve been there from before it changed ownerships(and I got a great deal then, too). Most gyms in calgary are commercial chain gyms that cost a fortune and have a bad atmosphere.
When do you work out anyway? I’m usually in there around 7:30 pm on weekdays. What kind of training do you do?
And where are you located in calgary?[/quote]
Basement? I didn’t know there was 2 floors to the place, I was just on the top floor. I will probably be going anywhere from 6-8 pm once I get into a regular routine, 3-4x a week.
Training varies depending on what I’m focusing on, but I have done some strongman training and some local comps when I was in Ontario, I have a log, farmers, 2" db, and a keg. I’m in Mayland heights, it’s only like 5 clicks away but it felt like it took half an hour to drive over there last time I went.
