Fahad just posted pictures of Core Fitness on his blog. If you’ve ever been curious to get an inside peek you can check out the pictures [Here]
Note: The picture above is of my kick ass personal trainer Dusty
Do they have a sister gym? Suggestions for good womens gyms, because the options are terrible
It looks like any other gym, nothing particularly striking. It seems too small and claustrophobic to me. I hope they have good ventilation; you don’t to smell the armpits of the guy next to you.
it maximum 3 people at a time so its plenty spacious
And one more thing, this “Trying to be Fahad” slogan, never mind it’s egotistical, but, why doesn’t FAHAD put a picture of himself so we know whom we’re trying to be like?
thats him on the right http://www.tryingtobefahad.com/wp-content/themes/FahadV2/images/ContentTopBG.jpg
That’s a comic figure dude. Show us a real picture.
dude if you’re obsessed with the guy just pass by the gym and check him out
Highly unlikely; I sure as heck don’t want to look anything like that. I’m sorry, but he looks like a gorilla from hell.
@GWB, if you didn’t like his build leave him alone, why you have to make a personal comment…regret to say that your comment is totally uncalled for….
I have been there for almost a year, and happen to be there when it almost empty and when it was crowded, Never found it to be smelly. and as Mark said only 3 people training at the same time.
Cool.. Pinoy trainers!

+1 In my sessions se mostly use the free weights http://www.tryingtobefahad.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/84779506-9D5A-462B-AA3A-18B0E8C819DC103.jpg
Mark, the second one is not a free weight. It’s a Smith machine.
Who said it was a free weights machine?
It looks like that when reading your comment because you said +1 and then posted 2 links. Anyway, my link was just to point out the disadvantages of using Smith machines.
that’s if you use it to squat but the machine is used for other things as well
Applies to all forms of bench press too and anthing where stability is concerned. Btw, responding to comments here is extremely inconvenient.
If you Google anything u will find negatives and I notice u do that a lot. U can’t keep picking on everything because u read somewhere something.
I did not google it. It was the first thing my personal trainer drilled into me. The net simply corroborated what I was told.
mark, would you recommend this over something like sidekick academy?
I have tried the fitness courses at sidekick only at core. I’ve tried martial arts at sidekick and that was very cool
Who said anything about it being dangerous?. My comment was only to highlight the disadvantages. i.e. it does not engage your muscles responsible for stabilizing. i.e. what is needed for real-world use.
Even the linked article makes no mention about it being dangerous – only that some people ASSUME that it is less dangerous, but is not the case.
huh? what happened to your comment Mark? My post now looks awkward.
I deleted it before u commented since i’m not in the mood to get into a discussion over this
Here we go again. The eternal machine vs free weights debate.
Before I begin, a little bit of bacground info – I’m 23yrs old, been lifting for 7 years now. I’m not saying I know everything but over the years I have learned a fair bit.
Yes, free weights are superior to machines, but that’s not to say that you should completely avoid using machines (especially the smith machine!!).
If you’re a beginner then you’d probably be better off sticking to free weights. However, for alot of intermediate/advanced lifters working their stabilizers is not always a priorty.
I have been doing shoulder presses and shrugs on the smith machine for many years now and they’ve worked great. Use of machines is not bad per se, overdependence on them is.
PS : You’d be suprised as to how many trainers have got no clue what they are on about(eps the ones in kuwait)
squats are best.
