Firstly I just wanted give a massive thanks to Dave from Tasmania for taking the time to write such a long and detailed review. Selling gym equipment online is a tough gig, for reasons which I will expand on below. This sort of feedback is not only great for people looking to take the plunge into the home gym or studio market, it makes a lot of the long hours and stress worthwhile from our end. So to Dave, I can't thank you enough mate!I don't very often leave customer reviews, but I felt I needed to make an exception in this case. A few months ago, I decided to get back in to fitness, specifi..
The new ATX Blackline Cable Attachments have been a real eye opener for not just our customers but also myself. Being a simple man with simple tastes, I go for the basic things in life. As long it functions right and is durable it gets a green light. To put it in perspective one of my favourite cars was my Holden Kingswood – nothing flash to look at but it never let you down no matter what you through at it. When we got the new line of cable accessories in from ATX I thought to myself who would pay a premium for a cable row handle when our base Power Maxx model was such good value. Considering..
Big thanks to Simon from Ox Fit in Yackandandah for sending a new pic of his gym. Simon does Personal Training, and this is exactly the sort of gym I would like to go to. There is no fancy machines, just iron and steel. You know you will be in for a tough workout!This is what Simon had to say about his gym set up.....Hey Matt,We got the flooring down yesterday and the gym is now ready for our first session. We gave everything a good dust and polish, with the rubber floor tiles down it looks and feels solid and stable.The equipment is awesome and perfect for our needs. Nette and I train fairly..
A 15 year old boy from Brisbane Queensland has tragically passed away after being trapped under a barbell. It is just so heart breaking to see such a promising life ended so young. But when someone loses their life in such tragic circumstances, it's important we learn from it to avoid it ever happening again. But in doing so, we must make sure the action is balanced and rational, not a bunch of media hype and knee jerk reactions.
Big thanks to Matt for sending a pic of his Barbarian Power Cage Gym. Matt has stepped up big time with this set up, going straight for the top shelf with the Barbarian Cage System. Like a lot of blokes that visit the showroom, he was blown away by the physical presence of the Barbarian cage - the pictures on the website don't do it justice. "Big Thanks to Francis, Matt & Sam for all your help,support and advice. Lovin my new Barbarian /Ironmaster / and Spud gear. Sam's Fitness is 100% recommended. "I'll be back"."..
Thanks to Alex for sending in a pic of his new Megatec Power Rack Gym. Alex was tight on space so opted for the 185cm Power Rack Barbell. This reduces the width required quite significantly in a small room. Morn Sam,Got it assemebled on the weekend and had the first workout yesterday. Couldn't be happier - See pic attachedAlex has squeezed most of this on 6 x 1m rubber tiles, given you a rough indication of the space required. This is all you need for years of quality training. ..
This is a great story, and one I have been meaning to post for ages. Tony came into my shop as a young bloke years ago. I am talking probably over 10 years! The Powertec gym equipment must have made quite an impression because when the opportunity presented itself, Tony set himself his dream home gym - after a very long wait!This is what Tony had to say about his new gym.....Hi SamI've been meaning to do this for a while now. Here's a pic of my setup in he garage. Let it be known in your description that I've been eyeing your equipment since when you were in St Peters. I couldn't purchase anyt..
This is a question I hear from parents all the time.Unfortunately, the term weight lifting is surrounded by a lot of "fake news". What I mean by this, is that there are some common misconceptions about weight training that prevent kids from participating in a healthy, educational activity that's heaps of fun.These "Old wive's tales" result in many parents treating weight lifting far differently than they would any other form of physical activity.Of course parents are concerned for the welfare of their children, but the scrutiny that some apply to this activity far exceeds the norm. In reality ..
Firstly, I am way behind with updates to our cool home gym section, so if you have got photos that you want to send in, please do. I am going to try and roll through a few gyms in the next couple of weeks. Colin's story is great. These days I don't do a lot of sales as the business has grown and my time is taken up with admin tasks. I have to bar myself from sales as I normally end up talking too long to customers. Then I run out of time to get all my other boring jobs done! But I love talking training, so it was great to get the time to chat with Colin and sort himself out a new gym, but..
