Heavy Metal Fitness is the best gym in San Antonio....and one of the best, if not the best, in Texas. I've been a member of many globo-type gyms (i.e. Golds, 24 Hour Fitness, LA Fitness) and while those are nice, the quality at Heavy Metal Fitness with regards to equipment and atmosphere is unparalleled. Tim & Michelle (the owners) are always welcoming to anyone interested in improving yourself, regardless of whether you're an experienced lifter or brand new to any form of exercise. There are a wide range of members with varying fitness goals, from the basic gym goer who just wants to get in better overall shape to the more dedicated lifters who train to compete in the strength sports of powerlifting or strongman. In terms of a real No Judgment Zone, this place is it. If you want to get better, everyone is willing to give a helping hand. This place has everything you need, and a lot of items that you simply won't find anywhere else. Some items include: 2 x Elitefts squat racks, Glute Ham Developer, 45 degree back raise, deadlift platform, several standalone benches, tire flip, multiple sleds/Prowlers from Elitefts & Rogue, battle ropes, bands & chains, Texas power bars, Elitefts Safety Squat Bar, Cambered Bar, trap bars, Apollon's Axle, concrete Atlas stones from 145-250 lbs, multiple medicine balls from 2-12 lbs, dumbbells from 5-100 lbs, Farmers Carry, Jump boxes from 6 to 60 inches, etc.
CrossFit 925 is physically, emotionally, and spiritually fulfilling for me. "Corinthians 9:25 All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize." I'm glad my husband tried it and loved it. He invited me to try it too. He knew I would love it here. The coaches are patient and sincere and still maintain a high level of discipline. They all care about each athlete individually and encourage community. They've inspired a positive culture where everyone encourages each other. The workouts are challenging, my mind & body are transforming, my confidence is increasing and I love this box and our community of crossfit athletes. Come try it out.
