Default New Gym in the DC metro area--Rockville

didnt know where else to post this and i hope it's ok, if not just remove it..thanks.

My good friends Matt and Suzanne Gary have opened a warehouse training center that is PL, Oly, Strongman Friendly. If your in the Bethesda, Rockville, DC area it is the only gym worth going to( minus the few CF gyms), check it out. There are no mirrors and only one machine (cable system). everything else elieko, werksan, elitefts made.
check out thier website for more info.

Nice equipment list in the FAQ! I'd might have to wander up there some day, it's a bit far from home for a membership (~45-60 minutes one way), great prices though. Now all I have to do is convince my wife to move to the Rockville area. Heh.


Do you know if they will be holding like a Strongman type sessions? Like once a week type of thing? I'd be interested in something like that as I've been curious about stuff like that recently.

Isn't there an affiliate out of the Marveteen's/tots gym that's like ~3 blocks away? Hah. Unless that's them and they moved over there.

Anyway, I'll probably check it out sometime.

I used to work right near there... IDK that I can get up there often, but any seminars that I'm not on deadline I'll definitely come to.

Just so everyone knows...Matt and Suzanne plan on having seminars for PL, OLY, Strongman, Etc....but it will be a little while before this happens as the gym has only been open for the past 4 days. I'm sure you can imagine there are some minor things still being worked out. I'm sure at some point Matt will either chime in or have me make some updates. He does want to convey that everyone is welcome no matter what your "sport" or training purpose.

Those are good rates? I'm just asking because they seem a pricey to me. I wouldn't really know--I haven't paid for gym dues in 15 years (except for the $100 for a year of oly lifitng at LBH).

If those are good, I assume that a crossfit affiliate is much more?
