Andrew, no problem. We have a month-to-month option for people like you. You can work out any time but if you come after 2pm, you can chat with our trainer about joining. His English is the best and he can show you around. Hope to see you soon!

How is kettle bell training compared to the traditional free weight training for muscle growth?

Not very well. I would suggest kettlebell training for conditioning and weights for muscle building, which is why we have both.

I just got back from a week of intense training in Olympic lifting down in Singapore. The goal here wasn't to lift as much as possible but instead focus on how I was lifting. This clip was taken after about 5 hours of training that day. Chinese coaches don't play. :)

We got some excellent new equipment in the gym this past week!
Image
This is our new half rack and bench. Easily my favorite piece of equipment! So much you can do on this thing and it takes up half the space of our full racks.

Image
Our new lat pulldown. Can't do pullups? Start here and work your way up. Or good for doing triceps.

Image
Functional trainer is in! This is great for doing tons of various functional fitness movements. A great workout finisher is a drop set on the trainer. Pick your exercise and select a weight, do as many reps as you can, then immediately drop weight and repeat the process until total failure. Guaranteed to promote muscle growth!
