Big iron weights and full height mirrors. What else?
In the year 1987 Harry, Eva and Wayne Catterall founded a gym at Foundry Lane, Wigan. It was family run and developed a reputation for dedication to hardcore training.
As the gym grew, new premises were required. In 1995 it moved to its present location at Church Drive, Orrell. The new place offered the extra space any gym needs and had the bonus of a private car park.
Today the gym caters for all serious strength training disciplines. With the gym split into rooms keeping iron plates and cables type machines separate.
The gym has a friendly and business like atmosphere, there is always somebody on hand, whether it be for time and results proven training advice or a firm hand for a heavy lift spot.
As important as a heavy training session is, attention must also be paid to nutrition. To that end the gym stocks a full range of pre and post workout supplements. In addition to nutritional products the gym has its own range of branded training clothing for sale.

Iron weights, benches, machines, padded floor and so on
We think there are a couple of key things that make up a good gym. One of those things is plenty of weight to train with. Another is the right atmosphere. This room has them both, and in spades.
The floor is fully padded and each wall is lined with mirrors. Dumbbells are kept on racks down one wall and they range from the very light to the very, very heavy.
There are a couple of bench press, including a Smith machine and incline bench. At the other end of the room are a couple of squat racks and reinforced floor. There are also some unique machines to this gym, such as the specially designed tricep Smith machine and 'shrug cage'.
Throughout the room there are plate trees, full of iron. Strategically positioned next to the main pieces of equipment. Everything is this room is designed and built to be robust enough to take the maximum punishment serious training is all about
Another key component for a good gym is variation. This room is focused on providing selector machines and cables for all body parts.
All body parts can be trained with variable resistance selector machines. Machines and cables can be used to target and isolate body parts, blast out some variation, or help recover from injury.
Either way the machines in this room have been specifically chosen or custom made for one purpose - quality and robustness. Machines take a lot of punishment and have moving parts so need some simple maintenance. All the machines in this gym are maintained on site, meaning no delays and equipment out of service gathering dust.
If boxing training is your thing, we've got it covered. The bag room has multiple bags and other cardio equipment ready for killer circuits. The floor is padded and the room has full height mirrors. The bags themselves are held up by a custom frame, so no matter the punishment the bag gets, the vibration stays in the room.
In the room is everything needed to bring in some variation to every session.
Like it says on the sign, this is a hardcore bodybuilding and powerlifting gym. But cardio is important to. This room is set aside to rowing machines and exercise bikes.
Actually, its more like set aside for rowing machines, exercise bikes, running machines, cross trainers etc, but you get the picture
