    Anyone know anything? Exact location? Anyone who has worked out there?

    gymjones.com for those who aren't in the know.

    Gym Jones is not a cozy place. There's no AC, no comfortable spot to sit and there are no mirrors. Stressors are intentionally designed to cause discomfort and apprehension. Effort and pain may not be avoided. Physical and psychological breakdowns occur. The support of a like-minded group, dedicated to The Art of Suffering, provides a safety net. An individual will push harder and risk more in the company of trustworthy peers and that's one reason the gym is not open to the public. Gym Jones is a private, invitation-only facility located in Utah.

    It's basically just an elitist CrossFit. A friend of mine sent an inquiry to epoch fitness which was started by one of the gym jones "disciples." And here's the response he got.

    I know its a copy/paste. Doesn't change the fact its true, though. Private facilities and private clubs tend to have people that are willing to bust their ass in the confines of a private facility surrounded by people that are willing to bust their ass as well.

    So many people in commercial gyms go just for the image. They get the matching sneakers/pants/shirt, the ipod arm band, do a couple sets of curls, try hitting on the girl next to them, and do some sit ups.

    Private facilities are no frills, bust your ass or get out. As long as you are willing to work hard, you have the support of the rest of your teammates / gym members. Everyone is encouraging but competitive, too. You compete against each other in the gym but never wish for anything bad to happen to your teammate and are willing to help out with anything in the gym to help him/her succeed. You do this because you know they'll do it for you to help you attain your goals.

    Yeah, even though Gym Jones is elitist/glorified because of the publicity from 300, the training there is no joke. Like Maine said, private spots like that get members who are in it for the same reasons.

    sounds absolutely fucking homosexual to me.

    i want a mirror when i train to fucking watch my form, i dont need some fucking faggots telling me that im not "holding up my end of the deal" because i train alone, i dont need some fagmo screaming at me or telling me how to train.

    if you dont have enough discipline to train right and eat properly (which everyone who is not a vagina should) then maybe this b.s. gimmick of an underground training hardcore fight club is suitable for you.

    what a crock of shit IMO though :rofl:

    sounds like anything "private and exclusive". adds an aura/stimuli to want to get in there, i.e. the forbidden fruit, same with clubs etc. if you know what you need to do, how to do it, and dont have enough drive to do it yourself, then whatever. ive never understood the "i need to train with such and such, or so and so to get HUGE"

    I dont. Ive trained with huge guys, Ive trained with small guys, i push myself to the max and do what I need to do.

    Also sounds like they'd have people tearing all sorts of muscles daily in fear that they will get kicked out of "Gym Jones" never to be allowed to return again. "Squat 600lbs new member! hold up your end of the deal or youre out!!! and everyone will laugh/spit on you!"

    "OK" *squats and tears quad - cant squat for a year = made amazing gains at gym jones*


    "But mom, if i didnt attempt the 600lbs squat at my weight (125) they would kick me out and laugh at me! I had to!"

    ehh, i think it's different. in a powerlifting or strongman gym you're training with people who have a goal of competing, and it's much more specialized than gym jones

    gym jones seems geared towards general fitness ..well, i dunno what their clientelle is like, but it seems different. plus, you're paying them..so it's not going to be the same as a powerlifting/strongman club or group where you have a group of like-minded people helping each other out.

    More power to them for having a private gym, sounds a bit ridiculous though if they kick you out when they feel like it and ...no mirrors (?)
