    New Here-Gym In Vancouver?

    Hey!I've been reading this board for a while and liking it.

    Am no longer able to train in-home and am looking for a good gym in Vancouver,British Columbia that is powerlift friendly.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I don't think you're going to find any gyms that are powerlifting oriented.

    I worked out at Uvic and they by far have the best facility of any gym I've seen or worked out at. They had 3 platforms which were rarely ever used and were in the far corner with all the rubber plates. They also had 3-4 squat racks as well.

    If Richmond isn't too far, try dropping by "Sports Central" and having a look at their facility.

    Good luck.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
