Serious training. Relaxed gym.

Extremely welcoming... Excellent gym. With huge knowledge and passion for the sport, weightlifting in Cape Town is in safe hands.

James Hipkiss

Advisory board, British Weightlifting

A couple of years ago I was involved in a car accident which left me weak and thin. I contacted Warren after hearing strong positive feedback from friends. I got much stronger, which my previous training and rehab was unable to achieve. I was worried I would be seen as an amateur, but apprehension was misguided. I felt completely comfortable in this gym. Nobody feels self conscious.

Great authentic training environment, complimented with great coaching!

Personal trainer, Virgin Active

I've never been particularly sporty, loathe cardio and high intensity interval training that leaves you feeling discouraged and take ages to give you results. Weight training has literally changed my body and mind in a short space of time. I can eat what I want, feel strong and look great.

Colette Smith

Warren is a top-notch trainer, and the gym is a relaxed training environment for those serious about barbell training.
No overcrowding and inflated egos. None of the usual bullshit you would find in a commercial gym. Highly recommended to people interested in powerlifting and Olympic weightlifting.

Warren is an extremely dedicated and focused coach. His attention to technical detail is what got myself and another lifter ready for our first official weightlifting competition in only six weeks. When I had serious doubts about my ability, Warren talked me through it – proving his competence in the psychological and mentoring aspects of coaching.

Great coaching, equipment and environment for Olympic lifting and powerlifting in Cape Town's City Bowl. Warren is a coach who will take you seriously and is invested in your training & success.

Helping me push past an old plateau. Relaxed atmosphere, real people just there to lift!

The morning after, it felt like a rock troll had hurled me into a speeding truck. 10/10 would recommend.
