Brilliant, Joni! I've been to Berlin twice and this makes the thought of a third visit even more tempting!

not many pictures yet!

had some trouble getting the building but the renovation is in full swing at the moment. Plumbing, electricity work, building toilet/shower/changingroom and an office, reception desk, fixing the doors, evening the floor, getting graffiti done across the whole front side of the building, setting up the vegan cafe part of it, oh and getting the equipment in and so on.

in full swing!

this is the hall from one angle empty:

Off to a great start - I hope the gym just keeps growing stronger! ;)
