Evolve Your Gym Experience | World Travel


It's no longer just about the workout.

With Generation Z taking the world by storm, technology is now central to the experience of exercise.

Be it in the form of downloading a workout plan from your favourite athlete or simply researching the most innovative gyms around the world - the overall style of fitness has begun to change, and we'll be honest, we stand behind the movement.

To quote our new GSHQ - it's time to "Evolve or Die".

So, with the world at our fingertips, we've decided to do some research. 

This time, we're bringing you a range of global gyms which will not only please the hardcore, weight-lifting enthusiasts, but also a few video gamers...

Need an excuse to travel? Get your passport ready - it's time.

1. Golds Gym | Venice, CA

"The Mecca of Bodybuilding" - where 'commitment, passion and dedication' radiate from every surface of the building.

With the likes of Charles Glass and Arnold Schwarzenegger imparting knowledge onto the next generation, Golds Gym has the ability to exceed all expectations and push you past your limits.

2. Doherty's Gym | Melbourne, AU

Opening times: 24/7/365. (24hrs a day / 7 days a week / 365 days a year).

Having quite literally thrown their keys into Melbourne's Yarra river, Doherty's fast paced, weight-orientated gym is an institution that never sleeps.

3. Black Country Barbell | Birmingham, UK

0121. There's basic gyms and then there's the BCB. 

Having recently opened its doors in January 2018, the concept behind BCB is undoubtedly a 'strength and body-building gym' however, that descriptor itself doesn't do it justice. With the introduction of instructor led classes and regular competitions, its friendly atmosphere makes for an unbeatable experience. 

4. Jungle Gym | Tulum, Mexico

Remove the idea of confinement. Train with nature.

Tulum's Jungle Gym is in no way your average workout space. With dumbells crafted from wood, barbells constructed from stone and the beach as its prime location, your workout will be one to remember.
