Really great atmosphere. Kyle has a lot experience backing up his training plans. This is a great place for people who have little to no experience lifting I went from struggling to squat the 20kg empty bar to squatting 80kg in under 3 months. The trainer, Kyle, and the other members are very accepting and encouraging and really let me feel comfortable in the gym. As I whole my quality of life has improved a lot and highly recommend this gym!! -Kris
