    Hardcore Gyms In Massachusetts: Where Are They?

    I used to go to Gold's Gym which is in Chelmsford, your typical gym-turned-healthspa; lots of yuppies go there, etc. Currently, I go to the YMCA in Lowell, which is sort of "gritty", but still not the feel I really want. A reference point for a true hardcore gym is where Ronnie Coleman trains: Metroflex in Arlington, TX. That's a hardcore gym through and through. Milos Sarcev's Koloseum Gym is also supposed to be quite the experience.

    Preferably something that's close to the Greater Lowell area, but either way, do any of you guys know where some of these hardcore gyms are around here? Not sure how many of you are from Mass, but it's worth a shot.

    Thanks all.

    Well damn, at least we're the best at everything else I suppose.

    They gotta be around here somewhere though.


    Thanks for the heads up rocco. I usually go to Boston to hang out, but it's about a 45 min. drive from Chelmsford.

    I hate the health gyms and commercial gyms. I'll take a good old gritty YMCA or community center any day over that.

    Indeed. The whole feel and mindset is different. It can without a doubt translate into better intensity (results).

    i got to a ymca in mass, i like it but its full of people doing curls and bench press only it seems. There is only 1 squat rack and no one ever uses it except me it seems. its so unused, thats the place where i do deadlifts also, only seen someone else to deadlifts 2 different times. Theres a group of people maybe 20 that go that are on steroids because me and my friend heard them talking about it, and they dont even work there legs....little chicken legs with huge upper body, pretty stupid

    There really are none around the Greater Lowell area. Such a damn shame.

    I'm starting to get really sick of the Lowell Y.

    If you want real gym, go to Assembly Square World Gym in Sommerville. You will see professional and hardcore bodybuilders over there.

    Thanks for the heads up man.

    Damn. I really wish I lived a little closer to Boston sometimes. I'm way over in North Chelmsford, so it takes almost an hour to get to any of the hardcore gyms mentioned. With gas prices the way they are, and the inconvenience aspect, it just renders it impossible for me to train at any of them.

    Also, you can take a look at super fitness. I go to super fitness, I find it better than any other gym because they have varieties of equipments and it's across the street from my house. They have like 50 equipments for only back, and they have all kinds of leg machines. You will also see steroid users at super fitness. So many equipments, you will never have to wait for other people using them. I only pay 29.99 monthly, a lot cheaper than YMCA.

    Gold's Salem. nothing is like metroflex, dude. Not even palumbo would train there. No heat OR AC.

    Your best option is Gold's Tewksbury. It's not hardcore, but it IS a Gold's

    the YMCA in Nashua is wayy better than the YMCA in Lowell...i just moved to Nashua and i checked out both YMCAs...the Nashua one is far more old school and gritty...and it also has an actual power rack...i dont recall seeing one in the Lowell Y...

    consider goin up the river to Nashua to lift...i'd do it if i were you...=)

    I go to the YMCA in Hanover. It's horrible. No gritty cutthroat feeling or anything like that. Before that I went to Plymouth Fitness and it was the same. It's all just health centers and old man spas around here. I need a better gym!

A reference point for a true hardcore gym is where Ronnie Coleman trains: Metroflex in Arlington, TX. That's a hardcore gym through and through. Milos Sarcev's Koloseum Gym is also supposed to be quite the experience.

    Preferably something that's close to the Greater Lowell area, but either way, do any of you guys know where some of these hardcore gyms are around here? Not sure how many of you are from Mass, but it's worth a shot.

    Thanks all.

    Looks like I may be moving to the Bedford, MA area and was searching online and found this old thread. I currently workout at work (Lifefitmess and Hammer Strength Headquarters in IL). I use to workout at Animal House Gym in Milwaukee...which was in a warehouse space with 2 huge garage doors open in the summers. Everything was Hammer Strength and Bodymasters with tons of free weights also...db's went up to, I think, 225...brought in for when Art Atwood worked out there. BUT from what I'm reading, the only things remotely like that are more towards Boston.
    BTW, I think that Hard Knocks Gym is where John Cena use to get in some pretty hardcore workouts...complete with a puke rail outside...

    Mill Pond reppin. lol place is a joke, but if you're lucky you catch the post zuma milf cluster. Don't mind that much. Otherwise that place is not worth it. Check out 10X Club up 53 more toward Norwell. Place is open 24 hours. Much better.

    T.P.S. (Total Performance Sports) in Everett. Strength based gym with SERIOUS lifter equipment, mad knowledgable staff (both old school and new school vibe) and has a bodybuilder-friendly attitude even though it is mostly a strength gym.

    Also, impossible to find but The Dungeon Gym in Webster, MA. it is literally a ****ty basement with all sorts of HEAVY stuff. Definitively old school and dirty, but crazy fun and serious. Pics of some dudes on the team I coach training there:

    http://thenextlevel.me/team-blog-adv...g-at-the-alter

    Also, hit me up if you're looking for connecting with legit, serious lifters and competitors. The Next Level is Boston based and definitely a sick, fun network of dudes who are way into the serious (but fun) aspects of the lifting scene. www.TheNextLevel.me
