Serious Training Partner in LA Area

As the topic suggests I’m just looking for a driven hard worker that would train seriously with me in the Los Angeles area. If you are interested send me a message.
Thanks!

Where are you located? We have a team of lifters lifting out of 4 Star Gym in El Segundo and sometimes out of the Golds in Redondo Beach. PM me if you’re close.

Damn, guys! Finally some people serious about lifting in image obsessed Los Angeles! I live in the Burbank/Toluca Lake/ Studio City area, and train at an L.A. Fitness currently. PM me if you want to hook up.

Drdgmuro: are you guys powerlifters? Dying to find some people to train with. I want to compete this year.

Fenris,

Yes, we have a group of guys that compete in most of the local powerlifting meets (USPF and AAU mostly).

We train most Mon, Wed, and Fridays around 7 PM @ 4 Star gym in El Segundo. It’s a key club and $25/month or 5 bucks per workout. Most times you have the place to yourself, so you can pick your music, sweat, cuss, use chalk, use bands/chains, and do all of the shit you would love to do in a commercial gym, except check out hot chicks which just doesn’t happen around 4 Star (there aren’t any). We’re working on getting better equipment permanently in the place. Some of us bring our own bars and misc. stuff. Otherwise, what it lacks in equipment, it more than makes up for in atmosphere.

Shoot me a PM if you want to come up for a training day.

Later, David

Are you a member of a gym at the moment? I’m always looking for someone to work out with but my membership runs out next month (24 hour fitness)

To the group in LA if you guys can get to Newbury Park Athletic Club I know you can find a facility that accomadates the “Non Cosmetic” crowd. They have an OL setup with chapman and eleiko bars, plenty of bumpers and I think there was talk of purchasing a monolift.

Check in with owner Ernie Salazar and tell him Pete from chicago sent you. They have some talented local HS and collegiate football players as well as pro baseball guys that train there.

Good luck to you in your quest for strength!
