20 Sep Melbourne Gym Spotlight: Dukes Gym Richmond
One of the great things about working at Meccamino is checking out all the latest gyms in Melbourne. A recent gym we’ve partnered with is Dukes Gym in Richmond.
The gym is based mainly around strength training. One of the things I love about it is their focus on equipment that people actually use in the gym. They’ve got heaps of squat racks, dumbbells and barbells. In fact, about half the gym floor is dedicated to free weights. Of course this is a personal preference, but I think most people that work out regularly prefer this kind of set up.
Duke’s Gym offers 24/7 access, reasonably priced memberships and have some of the best personal trainers in the business. Jared Hustler is a WBFF Pro and world renowned comp prep coach, Sam Smart focuses on strength and condition and Kiko Berry helps women of all fitness levels get fit and feel confident. There’s also a dedicated women’s only section so they seem to have all bases covered.
The thing that stands out most about this gym however, is not the cool fit out or the equipment, it’s the feeling you get when you walk in. Everyone’s motivated, there’s a real sense of community and the members just seem happier. It sounds like a small thing, but working out in a place where everyone’s training hard and there’s always a few familiar faces makes a world of difference.
If you’re in the Richmond area we highly recommend checking this place out. It will not disappoint.
Duke’s Gym also has the best in Supplement Vending, with a genuine Meccamino. Download the Meccamino iPhone and Android App to get a full catalogue of products with nutritional information and ingredients.
