The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Strength Gyms in Levittown PA

    I'm moving to Levittown PA in the next couple months and was looking for a decent gym. Google isn't helping. Would anyone know a good gym where I can squat, bench, and deadlift in peace?

    If you're looking for a crew we train out of Iron Sport Gym on Saturday morning and Monday night. Hit me up if you're interested.

    If you're simply looking to train locally you can check out VIP. Good group of guys.

    I have a couple of friends who live around Hamilton, NJ which is probably 20 minutes from where you are moving. Will ask them where they train.

    On the weekends I would definitely make the drive to Iron Sport - they have a great assortment of PL, OLY, and Strongman equipment along with the standard gym equipment for bodybuilding/etc.

    I heard back from my friends, they are top-level strongman competitors and train here:

    Florence Family Fitness / Johnny's Gym
    221 Broad Street
    Florence, NJ 08518
    609.499.1101

    Looks like it is about 15-20 minutes from you. I have seen videos from the gym of them deadlifting 600+ lbs for reps re-setting each rep and no one gave them a hard time; so you should be good with powerlifting training there.

    I live in NE Philly and I train at an awesome gym called "Mega Fitness" on Bristol rd. in Trevose....several squat racks, not many members, chalk allowed....geared towards strength. It's not your typical "LA fitness" or "Planet Fitness" type gym. It's also not a "meet market"....it's meant for serious lifters.

    It's 15 minutes from where I live, and also about 15 minutes from Levittown. I highly recommend it.

    The other recomendations given in this thread are probably good as well I'm sure! I just know the one I go to, and I know it's pretty close to both you and I!

    I just realized I never got a chance to see the responses to this thread. Thank you everyone for the help.
    I've found a gym, but I'm not 100% happy with it.

    I just train at the LA Fitness in Oxford Valley. Yeah you get your bro crowd, but it has a lot of really nice equipment, which I like because I train like both a pler and bber. I only pay $20/month. I deadlift there frequently and never am given a hard time.

    If you like to train past 8:30, no one is there and you can squat, dead, and bench in peace.
