I need to pay a little tribute to my gym.

I work out at Bodimetrix, located next to the YMCA swimming pool, behind SM City Manila. I found it back in August of ’05, a few months after moving to my current apartment. I just happened to be passing by the Y and saw their sign. One quick visit and I knew it was the place for me.

They have all of the basic stuff that I need (barbells, dumbbells, bench press, squat rack, etc). They have plenty of weights, and they take really good care of their equipment.

I meet people of different ages and fitness levels there. I also meet quite a few students, since the gym has a student rate. Sometimes I give training advice to the younger lifters.

If you live near SM Manila and are looking for a gym, try it! Ask me nicely and I’ll treat you to a free torture, I mean training session.
