Best gym for bodybuilders?

Post by pemble » Fri, 01 Feb 2008 10:10 pm

Hi all,

I am relocating to Singapore in April sometime, to start a new job. I am a keen bodybuilder here in England, and after much searching, have found my perfect gym, with all the proper "hardcore" equipment, not just flash machines.

My question is, are there any expats (or indeed, natives) who can recommend a good "hardcore" gym in Singapore?

Is body building hard core? I guess you mean on steroids, becuase that's the only way, anyone will have a chance, to compete over here, and I should know, having pumped iron for 40 years.

I have been told steriods are not illegal here to take, although if you get caught, in the contests, you will be banned.

Although I have never been on them myself.

Or you may mean hardcore free weight lifting! That's another, thing too.

And if your are into body building , then really heavy weight lifting isn't required, but technique is, and the ability to isolate muscle.

There are quite a few palces around, its probably best to have alook round first. Check out the health section, search "opt", he's bit of a specialist in weights.

Pemble ...

Please excuse KSL. Whenever you are not asking for advice, he'll be the first to give it. Then again, he's been pumping iron for forty years so he is well qualified. I once heard that SKL was the first to teach Arnold that "milk is for babies"!!

There are no hardcore bodybuilding specific gyms in Singapore, just the big conglomerates like Fitness First, California Fitness & Planet Fitness.
They're all much the same, so I'd go with whatever is most conveniently located for you. Cali Fitness probably has the best range of hammer strength equipment but they have a large contingency of fairies as there clientelle.

Something of interest for you; They've got the Singapore National Bodybuilding Titles (IFBB) on in mid - April.

So funny.....but you got to admit, milk today is not what it used to be! You can't beat good old breast milk, so keep sucking those titties guys, you'll get all the nourishment, you never had.

Poor Arnolds days are long gone, although the training never stops!

I've never been into the body building scene, that's why i was making some comments on the growth hormone, which is used... http://www.jintropin.cn/.....

Good advice is free and better than no advice at all...have you never ever noticed all the fairies working out as you call them....(Do i notice a little egocentrism, creeping in maybe) :wink:

Maybe you should help people in the gym, it's good for your Karma and self confidence...not everything is about making money...

I see many attempting to do flies, with 60lbs and wonder, just what is it they are trying to prove, its not very much at all, to do with strength, but knowing how to train the muscle.

what i have seen, is inflated skin tissue, with protien powders and enhancers, unable to isolate and cut, sure, there are lots of big fat guys out there, that really do need, the free advice.

It was funny, one day doing the bench press, I had 285 lbs on the bar, all these guys were stood around to see if i was going to bench it....ha!

All i was doing was conditioning my mind to bench 215lb...and just lift the 285lb off the bar 5 or 10 times, without benching does the trick and gives me the psychological edge to bench 215lb easier...

I would never dream of trying a press of that weight, on my own...although tricking the mind to lift a heavy weight does, the trick, now that's good free advice for you....and I have seen even the hard core struggling, with their weights, because they do not condition their mind first, by lifting a much heavier weight off the bar. :wink:

HGH is the fountain of youth. A very xpensive fountain...


Stallone has been using it to get in shape for the latest Rambo & Rocky movies..


He was charged for bringing large quantities into Australia.
