Im opening a gym (no need to say its vegan!)

Postby JP » Wed Jan 22, 2014 9:43 am

Hey, i finally secured a great location for my gym :)

Aiming to open in early March but it depends on so many things first.

Its a hardcore location, place looks like a shithole, which makes it PERFECT! graffiti, run down warehouses, atmosphere, and freedom to drop the weights as much as you want.

Ill keep VF posted about this too of course, im so excited :D

Knocked up a FB page for it too:

https://www.facebook.com/berlinstrength

but theres nothing there yet :)

LETS GO!

Not that I'll use it but I'm very excited about the idea of such a place, anyway! Good luck!

RAW really is a great location! Lots of vegan places nearby for pre-and-post workout meals is very convenient too! :D
Looking forward to come and visit.

I cannot believe the most important question has not been asked yet. Will it have a sauna?

Yes, this is the question wee need to ask before we embrace something like this.

Besides that, this is so good news. Hope we can visit this summer.

So awesome!
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."
