Hi,

long time reader, first time poster. Competed in two strongman comps so far and looking at my third at the moment, and loving it. 18years old so lots of time to improve.

anyway, the main question I have is are there any decent gyms in the bloomsbury area which cater for strongman-style training? I'm off to uni in London in september so am looking at gyms at the moment.

I know there is Dave Beattie's out in Wembley, but that's a good hour+ from my accommodation. If it comes to it i'll train elsewhere and travel for events, but if there was one closer so I could incorporate strongman equipment into other sessions it would be nice

This thread applies to me! In 2 weeks onwards I will be living somewhere in London (possibly Chelsea) and spending a lot of time around the border between the city of London and the borough of tower hamlets. Where the hell am I supposed to train? I need to squat every day and do other such hardcore things, while learning how to go about living in London.

I would enjoy that. How far away from the places I mentioned is the place you mentioned? I know where most places in the world are but I never learnt the parts of London because I always thought I would avoid it at all cost.
