    Hey guys,

    Moving over to Melbourne from the UK next week, just thought I'd join here to read up on and get some tips on the Ozzie gym scene, good gyms, etc. Been training for 10+ years.

    Please give me a shout if you know of any decent gyms around the St Brunswick area in Melbourne!

    Australia is not the best place if you wanna use gear. Nanny state here. Most gyms are 24/7.

    Good to know, thanks for the info! I'm actually on trt here privately, I will need to find a decent endo in Melbourne but yeah, I hear they are quite outdated over there on the subject.

    Yeah not sure just heard that the neighbours were moving out because the place was sold and closing? Be interesting to see what happens as it’s a bit of a Mecca for Melbourne the old gym
