Hyde Park Gym is known for our family atmosphere, friendly staff, superb personal trainers, Olympic weightlifting & powerlifting facilities, and diverse clientele. We’re also revered for what we DON’T have: blaring music, TVs, crowds, salespeople, and cologne-wearing gorillas that don’t re-rack their weights. The gym is also known for “the Arm” – the gargantuan dumbbell-curling bicep that protrudes over Guadalupe Street.

HPG caters to folks of all fitness levels and ages. We’re open every day of the year. Come by anytime – We’d love to show you around!

Old School Strength: New lifts from history’s pages

– Registration Closed –

When: Sunday, June 2, 10AM – 2PM

Where: Hyde Park Gym, 4125 Guadalupe St.

Today the bent press and one-arm snatch don’t find a great deal of popularity in most modern lifting and movement arsenals. But they, and many lifts like them, are part of a forgotten world of strength training that created some of the strongest people in history. Before anabolic drugs or anything resembling a multi-billion dollar supplement industry ever existed, people looked strong because THEY WERE.

Earn your muscle and learn how old school strength can build very modern muscle and increase your performance in the gym and out. Oh, and have some serious fun in the process.
