  1. Spin bike recommendations

    Hahaha Hey buddy, I wondered if/when/who would call me out, 6 or so years ago I was at about a 600kg training total, (something like 225/135/240) Then for a variety of reasons I stopped training and sort of tried to get back into it properly a few times until I finally deciding to stop beating a dead horse and gave it away. I do still have a fairly impressive home gym setup, which is waiting to be unpacked at the new house. It might not get a heap of use, but it will be around if needed. More recently I've started running with a view to do a marathon at some point next year. Spin bike is an option to avoid hammering the legs with so many kms each week. How are you going?
  2. Hi Brainstrust, I did do a forum search but couldn't find anything :( I'm after a spin bike to hit for a few hours a week as a cardio alternative to running, Ideally I want the best value bike in the under ~$300 range, or if there was a good special / deal on a better quality bike I can move that upwards. There's quite a few out there, any recommendations or tips and advice? Here's a bunch of links to the ones I've found: https://www.tsbliving.co.nz/products/spin-bike-11kg https://www.mightyape.co.nz/product/ape-style-spin-bike-with-flywheel-home-gym-exercise-blackred/33855208 https://new.grabone.co.nz/fitness-sports/other-cycling-biking/p/spin-bike-1 https://1-day.co.nz/products/home-fitness-attack-spin-bike-8kg-fly-wheel-4969-825423542 https://1-day.co.nz/products/home-fitness-spin-bike-4969-4154525190 https://www.dicksmith.co.nz/dn/buy/fortis-magnetic-flywheel-upright-exercise-bike-exr-200-fortis https://www.mightyape.co.nz/product/ape-style-deluxe-spin-bike-with-flywheel-home-gym-exercise-blackwhite/33854805 Thanks in advance :)
  3. Cheers SG, will see what happens thing week might catch up with you.
  4. Oh that was a terrible reply lol. I don't have a membership atm, have a mate whos training for a month at flexfitness so might go for a month there. In saying that, might come for a session with you Monday or Tuesday and could always sigh up at unirec instead. What do you train for? Powerlifting by the looks? Have you got a journal or would you mind letting me know what your training sort of looks like? Cheers
  5. Hey mate cheers, will let you know in the coming couple weeks
  6. Hi everyone, So I'm in Hamilton and looking to find a committed reliable training partner to start smashing some tin with. I'm happy to move gym to do so, I have a background in power lifting, best training total ~600kg just to give an idea of lifts. I'm looking for anybody who wants a reliable partner to smash some weight with, I don't mind if your a bodybuilder or a power-lifter, or a new/general gym go-er - as I'm wanting to add variety to my training, 'power building' as it's been coined. I'd probably ghost your regular sessions then throw in some power-lifting movements afterwards. Happy to train between 3-5 days a week, roughly 60-90minute sessions, after or before work doesn't matter. Send me a PM or reply here. Cheers, Phil

  9. Gyms in New Plymouth

    three years on - how are the New Plymouth gyms shaping up?? from what I've read on this thread, I'll probably be heading to World or Inglewood. dead-lifting heavy on Wednesday in the Naki (visiting for two days) and want somewhere I can create a bit of atmosphere, or at the least not get kicked out :doh: Do World Gym and the Inglewood facilities still operate? Fine to deadlift in them?? Any info would be great, cheers.

    It sounds like you need them for a specific meet, it could be worth finding out who else is going and organising to burrow someone elses on the day.
